Crap...well, after I go ahead and manage to go cold turkey (DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS) and make it through the dizzy spells, head aches, nausea and everything else, I thought I would be OK.
 
I can feel myself get instantly angry.  I am irritated and jump all over my husband and kids over practically nothing.  I am mentally trying to stop myself from doing this.  Uggh.  It's hard.  I use jokes and laughter to make uncomfortable situations better, because I desperately lack the ability to deal with things on my own.  I also found that I am getting mad at myself in a quick manner.  I was writing a report this morning for work, couldn't remember a word I wanted to use and was instantly pissed. 
 
Has this happened to anyone else?

It sounds like you need to be on some type of medication. Maybe a mood stabilizer.

Or some cognative behavioral therapy.There is a book called "feeling good" by a dr. David Burns. It is a really good bood to read. It is CBT too.

I hope you can get by without meds, but you may need some and there is nothing wrong with that. Many of us have to take them.

Take care. I hope that you feel better.

Hugs, Karen

BigSky-

I did the same thimg when I was at the hospital from surgery for over 3 weeks and they refused to give me my effexor. Finally they figured it would be a god idea to let me take it. HEHE. They also stopped me cold turkey off my clonazepam. Bad on there part. My wife said I was just plain mean then.

As Karen mentioned maybe talk with your doctor about something else to help out.

Take care,
Bill

It would be a good idea to talk this over with your counselor or primary doctor, could be still
a late withdrawal symptom...hope your feeling better soon, and it could also be part of a seasonal disorder,
with the holidays coming up and it's getting darker outside earlier...all of these can also make
a person angry...many well wishes to you and keep us posted...

Thank you everyone. I am definitely going to look into the book, "Feeling Good". I hate it that I act out like this. Last night, I made sure I did some Yoga, drank some hot tea, and had my 6 year old help me wrap some presents.

I said a quick prayer to give me the grace of patience, and made myself relax and breath, and when I started to feel anxious or upset I just tried to let it go. I think I am on the right track, but it is just so disheartening that my Zoloft made such a big difference in my life. :-/

I loved to read that you wrapped presents with your little one. That alone sounds so comforting. I am glad that you fought the anxiety too. It is hard, but with practice, you can stay on top of it. You actually can learn to control your own thoughts. I am really proud of your accomplishment. Keep hanging in there. Take care. Have a great day!!!

Hugs, Karen
