Tall my medicated friends:
Several weeks ago I was in the throws of Zoloft withdrawals. At that time I posted a response to michele862's journal entry 'Side Effects From Going Off Zoloft Cold Turkey'. On October 8, 2013, I posted the following to Michele's journal:
October 8, 2013:
"Cold turkey-ed my way off this poison and got the zap sensations pretty well. That seems to have settled down. I have been off for about 2 weeks now. Last few days I've been listless and just generally discontented. I've had some arguments with my wife and kids, too. I'm hoping that I get my bounce back soon. It's been really tough. Why did I stop? It was messing with my judgment and messing with my ability to feel emotions in a healthy way. I don't want to go through life like a Zombie. I want to experience life's ups and downs in a participatory way. Zoloft stole that. Along with the downs went the highs. I flat lined emotionally and lost out on life. Also, if I ever forgot a dose, I would get balance issues and feel week in the knees. I'm committed to fighting this fight to the end and to get my life back. I'm going to place my faith in Jesus, exercise and healthy food."
