Hi again CC,

Please talk to your doctor about this. He/she knows your health history and can best help you get off these. You defiantly need assistance to come off this many.
Please check in and let us know how you are doing!

I'm not Chris but yes, I've heard of that.

I hope you do talk with your doctor soon. The more support you get, the better you'll be able to work towards getting healthy, dear one.
