Congratulations and God reward you! May you be blessed with the grace of perseverance in your vocation.
One curious question, though: were you enrolled in the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, or were you received into the Confraternity of the Scapular of Carmel? It’s an important question because those are two entirely different things.
The Carmelite Order is responsible for the Confraternity of the Scapular of Carmel and as they state on their official page for the Scapular Confraternity, reception into the Confraternity "is the prerogative of an authorized person who acts in the name of the Order."
And just like I received a certificate decades ago when I joined the Rosary Confraternity, there is an inscription in a membership book and reception of a certificate for those who are received as members in the Scapular Confraternity.
The reception takes place according to the proper rite approved by the Holy See, by means of enrolment in the Scapular. The Scapular consists of two brown or dark pieces of material, joined together by two ribbons. For receptions, the name of the faithful and the date must be registered in a book kept for the purpose. On this occasion, a certificate with the name of the Confraternity or of the Church to which the person enrolled belongs may be given.
Notice that the Carmelite Order does not oblige any person to use wool or any particular fabric for the Brown Scapular.
Concerning the prayers, assuming that you were received as a member of the Confraternity of the Scapular of Carmel, the website of the Carmelite General Curia states this:
The members are bound to set aside regularly time to be with God in prayer, frequent participation in the Eucharist, daily recitation of one of the Hours of the Liturgy or of some Psalms or the rosary or other equivalent prayers.
Notice the term “are bound”… that indicates the binding obligation of membership in the Scapular Confraternity. And this is why I asked if you were enrolled in the Scapular or if you were received as a member — because if you were enrolled, there is no binding obligation but if you were received as a member, there is an obligation and the priest who received you into the Confraternity on behalf of the Carmelite Order was derelict in his duty to inform you of your obligation.
I know that we are supposed to provide brief answers here on CAF, but I’m sure you want an authoritative response, too. So I wanted to give you a thorough answer with the documentation so that you can study the Confraternity website at your leisure.
