Unhappy Paxil withdrawals-how long?

I've weaned off Paxil very slowly (3 months slow). It's now been 7 weeks of not taking any part of a pill and I'm still so irritable! I'm also really constipated and have been taking fibre, drinking tons of water and eating lots of fruit! How long can this last? Or am I wrecked and now need anti-depressants for the rest of my life? My family is getting tired of me!
