Thank you for returning and asking for me.
A motion to stay is a matter discretionary to the court to be granted for good cause. See: Houston v. State Bd. of Educ. (Ariz. App., 2011). In order to prove good cause you would need detailed medical reports from your doctor that describes your condition and how it would impair your ability to proceed in your case and defend yourself pro se, including the medication causing the inability to think clearly. An appeals court reviews a denial of a motion to stay on an abuse of discretion standard, meaning that no other rational trier of fact viewing the same information could reach the same conclusion, so your medical reports need to be very thorough in describing your condition impairing your ability to defend yourself.
