MY Dear Friends
I am slowly going down and i am currently at 3.4 hopping to go down to 3.1mg by tonight. It continues to be difficult yes but not impossible. The good days have started to appear more than before and this gives me hope that the end is near.
A lot of symptoms like anxiety, depression, non stop rumination, social fear, akathisia, brain fog and inability to take part in discussions have all gone away and i am left with only fatigue on specific days, body pains and some low level rumination on specific days mainly about my situation. On the other front i am continuing to maintain my family, work full time and also follow up my small family business.
We never know how strong we are untill we are put into this test. I still wished i never put my feet on that damn doctor's office but some things are written to be this way.
Please whatever you do... just try to listen your body. For me the slow taper is the best way to keep stability. I can see the end of the tunnel right now... and also the light just outside of it. I have fought hard for one year and i will stive have to fight hard for some more months but i will make it.
The supplements i am taking non stop are Magnesium and Vit c every night before sleep (plus one banana which is natural source of melatonine) and vit d and Omega 3 every morning.
IT IS DOABLE... do not anticipate the fear of not being able to do it. JUST LIVE THROUGH IT.
