What an amazing story of recovery!
Definitely something to give me hope at this time.
Unlike most here, I am the spouse of someone who was on an SNRI and changed dramatically, almost costing us our marriage and breaking apart our family. She is now coming off them, but the effects are terrible.
I am not sure what to expect in the coming months and years, but am trying to stick by her and help her through this all even though she has admitted to having absolutely no feelings for me, and even had an affair late last year (shortly after the 8 week introductory period for the new medication was reached).
Your ability to reflect on your experience and provide some words of encouragement and wisdom to us all is much needed, so thank you for that!
