Welcome to my insights, ponderings, and experiences. Hopefully they will enrich you in some small way, or at least make you laugh.

Poison Free

Hey there! Yeah for me. About 4 weeks ago I decided to buck science and trust my inner wisdom. I quit taking my zoloft (75 mg daily) cold turkey. It was pretty tough the first couple weeks. Now, not only am I feeling better, I can remember things and learn new information for the first time in 4 years! I am so happy! Yeah I get stressed a bit easier, but now I am aware enough that I can notice, breath deeply and let it go. Learning new coping techniques has given me the skills to release the negative and be fully present. As I practice, it gets easier.

Yeah for me!

Not the first who has come off the prescription and wondered why the hell they were on it in the first place. Seems like at first its a reasonable crutch.. and then it becomes too easy.

Congrats on getting your life back
