Hi everyone and Hi Flowers
Flowers I intend to start following you. I follow Genlady which I managed to set up on my own, but seem to be struggling with how to set up following someone else, so can anyone talk me through it?
This morning I took 19.9 mg citalopram but my careful reckoning. I decided to try to work out the dosage properly, and it is 2 drops from the syringe for me.
It took me a lot more times of failure trying to get off diazepam than I have failed so far with citalopram. Yet I persisted with trying to get off diazepam and ultimately succeeded. So I have decided to use all the lessons I have learnt through my failures to try again.
I have a 2 week 1 day old granddaughter now, Esme, and I don't want to live in this 'fog' while she grows up. I lived in a psychiatric fog while I brought up my own two children and I am sure both they and I missed out on a lot. I know my late llife career is important to me but it is not as important as my enjoyment of life and if I am careful enough another withdrawal attempt should not interfere with my ability to work.
I am married to the 20 mg anyway so might as well persist with a smaller dose and see where it leads. Also taking citalopram not only makes me 'foggy' but it does make me eat loads of carbohydrates and does give me weight problems, which I know are not me. I can't exercise anymore than I do, the only way is for me to try to address the underlying cause - that of taking citalopram.
Twice now when I have got down to 14 mg I have felt more in control of my food choices, so if I could just reduce to that it would help me a lot.
I am typing all this because sometimes a person's thoughts can help others to make more informed decisions.
So, I am now going to see if I can set up to follow Flowers.
