Stop Lorazepam: I would advise you to get to a program that will help you get off of both of these mind altering substances and to learn a spiritual way of living that brings your life purpose, joy, serenity and along with that will come increased libido.

Your current treatment plan is not in any way healing, curative, or helpful in creating a bigger more purposeful life. It is one that keeps symptoms at bay, maybe, but does not offer any hope for a better or more healthy future.
