Tired of fighting it
Hi-I'm new here, so bear with me. The reason I looked for a site like thie is that I'm sooooo very tired of fighting my chronic tendancy for depression, and I don't want to whine to my friends or family about it. Again.
Background-I'm an almost-52-year-old mother of three, stable marriage of 34 years, registered nurse. I'm currently on Effexor, and had a totally crappy experience this week with unintenional cold-turkey withdrawal (I'd simply run out of the nasty stuff, and didn't dream I'd feel so lousy so fast). I'd only run about a day and a half behind on the doses, and have been back on it for three days now, but this seems to have landed me deep into that gray cloud of doom that I fight so hard to avoid.
Anyway, I guess I just wanted to unload that, and ask if anyone else has experienced exacerbation of symptoms from a short lapse in drug therapy.
Thanks for "listening".
