If I don't fully recover during this present system of things, I know I will recover perfect health in the very near future. I know of over eight million others who share my hope.

There is a topic "Do you believe in chronic damage? What if you were given a guarantee that you could live forever on an earthly paradise with mankind and animals all being at peace with one another? And you would be healed from withdrawal syndrome or whatever affliction you are living with. Even if you were to succumb from your sickness, you would able to live again. And this would last forever. Would you not be interested in how these things could come true for you? There are over eight million on the earth right now myself included, who absolutely know this will happen. It can become your hope as well. Do you want to be well again and enjoy the exquisite delight in the abundance of peace? Please, just ask me how this can become a reality for you as well.

We live in critical times hard to deal with. This is another proof of that statement. But it is not always going to be this way. A very bright future awaits in the very near future. All these injustices will be gone. Man has dominated man to his injury for centuries, but this is all coming to and end soon.

I have a very traumatic history like many here and millions the world over. Mankind is a sea of agitation like no other time in history. But there is a way out. Just ask me.

This is what helps me. "Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes,I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness. " I know I will be well again someday.

Hebrews 3:4 "Of course, every house is constructed by someone, but the one who constructed all things is God." No, I have not lost my faith in God from withdrawal, but in fact have had my faith strengthened. If a house, must be built my human hands, how much more so the universe must have intelligent design. Am I allowed to talk about this here or am I confined to my one topic? Don't want to break any rules.

That's great Marsha.

 

Yana


2010 started 10 mg celexa, 2011 went up to 20 mg
06/2014 started tapering (20 mg,10 mg alternate days)
19/09/2014 crashed at 10 mg
20/09/2014 updosed to 20 mg to try and stabilize- Never stabilized and CNS basically plummeted
August 31 2015- Started my 5% taper anyways

May 3 2016- At 14 mg the tapering caught up with me- Withdrawal included severe anxiety, feeling like im on speed, suicidal and homicidal ideation, akathesia, feeling like I was on heroin, memory loss, PGAD, feeling like I was on an acid
May 4 2016- Updosed to 15.5 mg to try and stabilize
​June 4- Started taking 2 mg 5 times a day which adds up to 10 mg because of akathesia when taking my full dose. Akathesia symtpoms smaller
July 27th- Dropped from 15.5 mg to 10 mg because could no longer tolerate taking drug- bad side effects mainly akathesia and emotional deadness.
​Oct 11- Improved a lot since May 4th after my crash. Withdrawal symptoms still left- DR/DP, emotional anasthesia, akathesia, tingling in head, feeling like my body and face disappears, messed up sound interpretation, perception and difficulty reading social and emotional cues during DR/DP, apathy, inability to tell if I am in dream or reality, disturbed sleep. Started having few windows

Something else that helps me. I believe God's promise that soon I will have "exquisite delight in the abundance of peace." Cited from New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures.

Here are a few encouraging words from the Bible. In the very near future: "He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Revelation 21:4. We are living in "critical times, hard to deal with." From 2 Timothy 3:1-5. I would happily share my wonderful hope for the future that is promised in the Bible.

Am I following the guidelines correctly?

wishing you peace


WARNING THIS WILL BE LONG
Had a car accident in 85
Codeine was the pain med when I was release from hosp continuous use till 89
Given PROZAC by a specialist to help with nerve pain in my leg 89-90 not sure which year
Was not told a thing about it being a psych med thought it was a pain killer no info about psych side effects I went nuts had hallucinations. As I had a head injury and was diagnosed with a concussion in 85 I was sent to a head injury clinic in 1990 five years after the accident. I don't think they knew I had been on prozac I did not think it a big deal and never did finish the bottle of pills. I had tests of course lots of them. Was put into a pain clinic and given amitriptyline which stopped the withdrawal but had many side effects. But I could sleep something I had not done in a very long time the pain lessened. My mother got cancer in 94 they switched my meds to Zoloft to help deal with this pressure as I was her main care giver she died in 96. I stopped zoloft in 96 had withdrawal was put on paxil went nutty quit it ct put on resperidol quit it ct had withdrawal was put on Effexor... 2years later celexa was added 20mg then increased to 40mg huge personality change went wild. Did too fast taper off Celexa 05 as I felt unwell for a long time prior... quit Effexor 150mg ct 07 found ****** 8 months into withdrawal learned some things was banned from there in 08 have kept learning since. there is really not enough room here to put my history but I have a lot of opinions about a lot of things especially any of the drugs mentioned above.
One thing I would like to add here is this tidbit ALL OPIATES INCREASE SEROTONIN it is not a huge jump to being in chronic pain to being put on an ssri/snri and opiates will affect your antidepressants and your thinking.

As I do not update much I will put my quit date Nov. 17 2007 I quit Effexor cold turkey.

It is not our fault that we are suffering. Even people who have never been on these drugs suffer like we do. Ecclesiastes 9:11 says "time and unexpected events overtake them all." I believe God's word when it says "The whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one." That is Satan the Devil. He is responsible for the turmoil and suffering that mankind experiences. But soon God will put an end to all suffering by taking the Devil out of the picture. God gives us so much hope for the future even while sustaining us right now as we suffer. Imagine this: Never having to die and living on the earth in a beautiful paradise with no sickness or death and all creation being at peace with one another. This is promised in the Bible by our Creator. I would love to share how I learned about this wonderful future. PM me or just ask here and I will do my best within the SA guidelines to help anyone who is interested.

Will you accept God's greatest gift. What do you think? What is the greatest gift God has ever given us? The Bible says:"God loved the world so much that he gave his only begotten Son." The Bible describes a gift of incalculable worth, which can bless those who receive it with everlasting life. Could there be a gift of greater value?

What can God do for you today? Excerpts from Psalm 25....."Turn your face to me and show me favor, for I am alone and helpless...The distresses of my heart have multiplied...See my affliction and my troubles....Free me from my anguish....guard my life and save me....for my hope is in you......" These words from God's word the Bible have brought me great comfort. And from Isaiah 42....No crushed reed will he break, no smoldering wick will he extinguish.... I J.....h have called you in righteousness, I have taken a hold of your hand....I will safeguard you....You can see others have shared your pain and anguish, they penned for you words you also express because of being overwhelmed in this system. God sees it and can strengthen you to help you endure. Have that confidence, no matter what, as it is a promise from him.
