Zoloft to zero mg from 100 mg - Woo Hoo! Thanks All!!!

Monday, November 16, 2009

Just an update for y'all:
Well I'm only on Lazropram now (and that's from 1-2 mg depending upon the stress of my day). Zoloft from 100 mg to 50 mg and now to 0 mg.
Over the last few days, I've have still suffered from great muscle tension, tension headaches and a that feeling of not being able to clear my ears from the pressure (like some kind of "head cold") ...
I made the decision when I seemed to be going well after overcoming the first period of reducing Zoloft. I was without the meds for a day, and I said to myself: "What the f..., let's try to zero and see what happens. I've made it this far ok."
Well, BIG probelms with my girlfriend and eventhough I am reduced to tears sometimes the issues we are dealing with seem to me to merit them.
I hope it's not the depression sneaking in :S I am ok, no desires to knock myself off or hurt myself either, so this is all good (my PDoc was worried for me... and PS: I can call at any moment and get help if I "fall in a 'black hole' or have big problems.... "socialized" Italian health care at times is great and 100% FREE for those that really need :) )
So I'm watching myself closely, trying not to eat to cover up my emotions, to not build a wall around me, let my girlfriend always in and at the same time know that I (like all of you) are worthwhile no matter what!!! Even in the case she doesn't want to be with me and we break up :(
It will be ok and I thank you all for being here to give me a listen and all and suggestions are well appreciated.

    Love her until you just don't anymore, and then release her. More than likely, it will all work out and you'll live happily ever after. :-)

    OMG, just noticed the date...It's been so long since you've blogged, everything may have resolved by now. Remind me to tell you about the absolute love of my life sometime. I lost him to cancer almost 20 years ago, but he was my soulmate, so I know I'll see him again. :-)

    We go up and down to our respective misunderstandings and expectations... crazy stuff :( In the end if you want to be with someone and they want to be with you, why should it be so hard? Seems like we are over 40 years in the making and that's why it is so hard: to fixed in our ways, and so on ... Well I'm toughing it out and everything is good for the moment :)

    my dear thimas you are a catch and don't let things get you down..in my life i went through that kind of things many times and finally in one of my moments said you know i can make it it and i don't need this for sure so i stopped trying to get a boyfriend or even men friends because it was just too hard and there just weren't any that really met my expectations even for just friends..and it's a little harder when you are deaf as they tend to see you as 'defective' somehow and not worth any real consideration..and you know it's ok..well for me i guess it's ok although i have my moments wondering why but i know already and there is no fix for that..so i found other things to do for sure..i hope this girl works out for you and if not you have a lot to offer my friend and someone will see you bright shining smile and you will be swept away love and hugs to you my friend the lady mary emoticon
