Hey Everyone i just wanted to say Hi :P Let you all know im doing ok.
Skitt im so sorry to hear about your sister, my deepest sypathies got out to you and your family. I nearly cried reading some of the posts shakehead .
Im currently going on going on 5months without using anti-depressants and had my fair share of ups and downs with anxiety in that 5months, right now everything is ok and im planning to go aslong as i can without using any meds. The moods swings and implusive behaviour i used to get on my meds have become much much more stable and I really think now tht citaelopram did make me atleast aittle bipolar. When i do go back to using meds im going to ask doc for different med other than Citaelopram or ask him to consider prescribing a mood stabliser aswel. Hopefully tht will help curb the implusive behaviour and mood swings. Im not naive enough to think i can go my whole life without ever using meds again.
Sorry for losing touch for so long been a crazy old year 2009.

Hi, badfish!

It's good to hear from you! It sounds like things are looking up a bit for you - that's wonderful. I'm so glad you're not having such difficulty with mood swings now. It sounds smart of you to be thinking ahead to when you might need meds again, even while you're giving it your best to get along without. I'm so glad you're pleased with your progress - you deserve it!

Hi Badfish

Great to hear from you, Its good to hear that your anxiety is doing ok at the moment and you are managing without medication which is good news. I have taken Citalopram and did not find it helped me much and think its a good idea if you do need meds again to try something different. I hope things continue to improve for you my friend.

Take care

Don't forget, if you do need meds, don't feel badly! Some people need medication for high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. Some of us need medication for our depression and/or anxiety. Glad to read that you're feeling okay and hanging in there!

40 mg. Prozac, Ativan as needed.
