Hi Debbie,

I am sorry to hear you are back in the hospital again. What for this time? Who ordered them to stop your sleep meds - your doc? If it wasn't your doctor can you call him/her to find out why they stopped them especially since it was suddenly. Yes, one thing you don't need is more infections!!!!

Even though it is not a good time for you, I still want to wish you "Happy Birthday" today! I keep you in my prayers always. I love you

I would definitely try to get a hold of your doctor or whoever is in charge of your care to find out why they just stopped cold turkey. I would think they would try to wean you off of them if you have been on them a long time. What kind of sleeping pills were you taking and for how long? You should be treated like a VIP at that hospital for all the times you were admitted!! queen

Is there any way you can contact the doctor that prescribed the benzodiazapens for you? Maybe they could let the hospital staff know how important it is that they are not stopped like this.

I hope you feel better soon!

Hugs,
Beth
