I always thought I would take care of my hub, because he is a tad older. Now he is taking care of me, beautifully, with only the occasional mild grouch. I'm so lucky we stayed together (for 50 years) when there was a time I thought we might be better off divorced. Avoid the toxic, but hang on to the mildly irritating, after all, it might be something you did.

Jacksonville Beach, Florida! Looking to meet some people closer to me to have an in-person support group


2009 - 10/2014: 40MG Citalopram

10/2014: Started taper by liquid titration by about 5% every few weeks (1000 times harder than Benzo taper)

1/26/17: 3.5 MG

3/12/2017: 2.9 MG

 

2009 - 10/2012: 2 MG of Klonopin 

10/2012: Hit tolerance and began taper

12/2013: Finished liquid titration taper (less than 10% every few weeks)

Experienced protracted withdrawal and was about 80% healed by 10/14 when I started my citalopram taper.
