Withdrawal

Pin It I would like to take this opportunity to talk about withdrawal.

I am in withdrawal.

From my antidepressant.

Over the past 3 weeks I have gone from 1 pill daily to 1/2 a pill daily to 1/2 pill every other day.

So basically I have a decent day every other day and on the no-pill day I am rather psychotic and emotional.

I'm really enjoying it (read heavy sarcasm).

Hi! First time visiting your blog I think. It is very beautiful! I love the colours and the background pattern - everything!

I know what you are going through with your depression...well, after scrolling through and reading some of your other posts, it seems yours is post partum. I don't know what that kind of depression is like, but I used to suffer "regular" depression about 8 years ago. I stopped taking meds because I couldn't afford them and I had some pretty bad days after the meds got out of my system. All I had to lean on was God and the prayers of some of my church friends. I did survive, though. Hang in there and lean on the Lord at this time.

I'll bookmark your blog and be back again! Feel free to stop by my blog (which I have finally updated a couple times this week since being here in Korea) - it's called Ink Scrawls (my knitting blog is called Kitten Knits Yarn if you are interested in checking that out too).

Wish I had something to say. Anything. Wish more I could come and give you a hug. So that'll have to do. Hugs.

Wondering what kind of med that you're going through withdrawal from? Just wondering if you're going too fast since a good friend of mine (who's a psychiatrist) said to wean off more slowly. I've gone from 3 little ones (totaling 150) down to 2 little ones (100mg) and that's taken me a couple of months. Going down to 1 in another month or so...

Hang it there!

Tah-rah

FYI: I had a blog about PPD and am putting it up again.

Feel free to be my first comment :)

Sorry to hear you're having a rough time. I'm not a doctor and I'm not living in your body so I have no idea what you're feeling. I am wondering though if you should wean yourself a bit slower. Good luck!
