I'm a little confused by so much here? They want you off or they will take your son,but you can go back on in 28 days?? What's the point then? If you have 6 docs saying you should be on them shouldn't that be enough for the judge? Or is there other drug/alcohol use that you left out of the details? Other than the hospital or re-hab (which neither will take you?) I don't know where else you could get help? I hope someone else sees this soon and can offer you advice. Good luck to you,I hope things work out. None of us would want the threat of loosing our child hanging over us,I'm sorry you're going through this.
Get a letter from the prescribing doctor and have it notarized. 28 days is not enough time to get off benzos. You need a long, SLOW taper or you have seizures, strokes and the like. Call your doctor first thing and ask for the letter or perhaps he or she could testify. Please this cant be right. Maybe the judge could give you more time.
What does your legal representative say about all this? I know that you're panicked but as my friends above pointed out, your information is confusing & it's hard to believe that a judge wouldn't take written affidavits from drs. testifying to your condition & to your experience trying to come off!
I echo what msdelight said. She knows what she is talking about.
What caused your stroke? Do you have high blood pressure? Also, were you referred to a cardiologist after the SVT episodes?
I do not understand your story. How can DCF take away your son if your meds are prescribed by a doctor? Were you mis-using them?
Finally, I really hope you have a lawyer or legal aid helping you out. If they aren't, ask for a new one. Good luck honey.
