The esteemed Shep is the latest addition to our moderator team.

 

When she first posted here in November 2014, Shep was coming off 30 years of every type of psychiatric drug you can imagine, for a spurious bipolar disorder diagnosis when she was 17. Her story is here: ☼ Shep's journey

 

She has had many distressing withdrawal symptoms and has learned a great deal about self-care. She is slowly recovering and, having contributed so much to the site already, has now joined our fine group of moderators.

 

Please welcome Shep to the moderator team!

scallywag has joined our fine group of moderators.

 

Although joining SurvivingAntidepressants.org only in April, scallywag has impressed us all with her depth of knowledge and valuable contributions, such as

 

After an earlier misadventure with Effexor withdrawal syndrome, she is currently tapering Cymbalta by counting beads, having paid the price for skipping doses to go off -- that story is here Scallywag: Cymbalta - Forgot about tapering - bad idea

 

Welcome to our mod team, scallywag!

Major quake (7.8 magnitude) has struck off Christchurch, NZ.  

 

Tsunami waves expected (up to 16ft high in some places) along entire east coast.

 

Hope our SA friends are ok??

I also hope that you kiwis are okay.

 

Apart from the physical danger and damage it's amazing how things like this can cause issues.  My family had been visiting in a suburb of Newcastle for about 1 hour when that earthquake hit.  We raced outside because we had no idea what was happening and a short while later I broke out in hives.

Can't speak for the rest, but I'm okay.  I am so far from where the earthquake happened, but it woke us up and we got into a doorway.  Probably didn't need to, but it felt safer.  The main issue here in Raglan is that our water supply got disrupted and so we have to conserve and boil water for the next 3 days.  Thanks for thinking of us here in NZ - that's lovely :)

My heart is spilling over: I have read such beautiful, eloquent posts lately from members and moderators.

 

Yes, we have our quotient of wasted pixels, but in all, there is a sense of goodness here.

 

Thank you, everyone, for making this site such a very special place on the Internet.

wow Alto, you never cease to amaze me

I did not expect to see this, when we owe so much to YOU and the mods, for this site and for the countless hours volunteered to help mere strangers on the interwebs

 

there's not sufficient words to express my gratitude.

and then to see you thanking the folks here!!

 

you've got a huge heart Alto
