    I can only offer hugs Frenchie.

    I wish I was close to you so I could help in a meaningful way.

    I know you've said the local hospital isn't close but are you able to present at emergency stating you are unable to obtain your meds and need something to prevent withdrawals?

    I had to do this on the weekend after missing an earlier appointment with my doctor, by this stage I was starting to withdrawal and they straight up have me what I needed and script to cover me until Monday (unfortunately much lower doses though which hurt a lot).

    Just an idea, I can't imagine withdrawing with 5 kids, I struggle with 1.

    No, the dr i saw should not be a dr. She yelled at me because I started crying.

    I have two staff but they are both still at school so can't do all the hours.

    I'm going to end up at the hospital if I have a seizure from going cold turkey from Xanax. The stupid side of me wants something really bad to happen to me to prove to them they need to listen to people and I'm not just some low life

    I went back this morning to another dr with my script for a whole seven tablets that she gave me yesterday and said can I go onto something weaker like Klonopin or Valium so I can wean off safely and he said 'no I cannot help you and it's not negotiable.' He said you have to see the psych. I said that's fine, I have an appt in three weeks but I'm going to go into severe withdrawals if I don't reduce these Benzos safely and he wouldn't listen. I told him
    I have to travel to Brisbane mon, tue, wed for my two year old to have an MRI and EEG and he said 'well you can't travel in withdrawals' no Shiz Sherlock that's what I am saying! I'm not
    Cancelling these appointments, she had a massive seizure.

    I'm not
    Wanting to get high I'm just trying to cope. I find Xanax to not even be strong enough to 'get high' it just levels me out and I have been coping beautifully. I am so upset.

    My last hope is my specialist who I see on wed for suboxone. I know he is a believer in slow benzo withdrawal and suggested I do it over six months. I am hoping he can actually prescribe it for me. He better for $180 for a 10 min appt.

    Doctors really don't get it sometimes, I'm on nothing compared to you but last appointment my Valium was simply cut off, taken on top of a few endone and targin and I can cope with the pain, they don't believe I should be in so much pain so refuse to up the number meds I'm allowed and how often, last week has been HELL and I've already gone through my fortnights pain killers.

    If only it was as simple as don't take this, take this, you'll be fine, our books tell us so, pfft! My lack of life tells me otherwise!

    And I know about it just taking the edge off, this is all my meds, I laugh when someone offers me a panadol these days, I can't remember the last time I had one of them I've been on the stronger stuff that long.

    I hope by now you have managed to get some help and relief GBH.
