For the next couple of months, I will be changing this site all the time. You will see changes in layout, colors, maybe even functionality, hopefully for the better. Please bear with me. (Post suggestions for changes in this topic http://survivingantidepressants.org/index.php?/topic/163-suggestions-for-this-site/page__gopid__1078#entry1078.)

 

Eventually, as it grows, this site probably will move to a new host server, one that can handle more traffic faster at less cost. The more posts there are on this site, the higher it will show up on Google and the more new people will visit.

 

Please feel welcome, stretch out, and express yourself.

 

Your friendly administrator,

 

Surviving

To "Sur" with love -- Congratulations on the birth of a beautiful, bouncing baby discussion board. Thank you for the tremendous amount of work you put into setting up the site. And thank you for providing a place for further mutual aid on the subject of psych med neuro damage recovery. I hope this site brings you unexpected good fortune, and that it will help your healing take a quantum leap forward.

I just wanted to take a few minutes to let you know that this is going to be one Blessed and Much Needed forum for so many people.

 

I thank you for ALL of your efforts, knowledge and hard work in constructing a safe haven for those who must endure the multiple and prolonged storms of WD.

 

I can already feel the positive energy of this place and I believe this forum will be of superior quality since, I know your spirit and intentions are pure, honourable and compassionate.

 

I'm also so pleased to see some of the finest people within the current membership. I have a high regard and respect for many of you and it truly is a pleasure to be in your company!!

 

BTW, I really like the "domaine title" (if that's the correct terminology (lol))you have chosen for this site" re: SURVIVING ADs".

 

Many Blessings to the Admin and to ALL!!

 

Thank You!

 

Most Sincerely,

 

Punarbhava

Thank you so much for being here, just what I needed an online support group.

Weaning off Effexor XR and down to 37.5mg per day and just had a horrible experience when I tried it every other day.

When will all this end.....????

Welcome, sammyjo.

 

I've started an Introductions topic for you here

 

Please tell us your story. We've all been there.

 

And -- please do NOT take Effexor every other day. Too much rocking for your nervous system! Slow but steady tapering will work better.

For personal reasons, Healing is stepping down as a moderator.

 

Thank you, Healing, for all your help. You've done a brilliant job making the Finding Meaning forum a vibrant center of the community. We all look forward to your continued contributions.

 

Our level-headed and dedicated Patience is the site's new assistant administrator, to help with administrator tasks.
