Lots of stuff going on in my life, around me, in my relationship…I keep wanting to blog about it but still have no energy.
One thing that I want to jot down is that I have decided to get off my antidepressants after seven long years – I don’t have one particular reason, but knowing that SSRI’s can cause autism (would post a link but I am lazy, Google it though!) in unborn children, and since I know I will want a child sometime in the near future, I do not wanna mess with another human being..
Also, a new close friend came off her meds and it inspires me to get off mine.
And, I guess I’m just tired of remembering to take it. I am still depressed a lot and have a LOT of dark days when my mind just sucks me into this deep hole of hopelessness, and the meds have not taken that away, so might as well do without, right?
I want to feel what I am like in my natural state.
So. Day 4 of half-dose. I have decided to first cut the dose by 50%, then stay on that for like a month, a month and a half, then start taking it every two days for a while, then every three days, and so on…
Sound like a good plan?
I found this article from the UK very helpful, but if you guys have any suggestions, I am happy to hear them!
