You are more than welcome for support - it's what we are here for!
I stopped tea the day I went back on Citalopram about a year ago. I did however drink 3 cups of tea whilst I was in hospital and up all night waiting to see someone about my reaction to some meds earlier in the year. Made me very active and noticably more anxious.

Yes - as you were stable on the Citalopram. I think it will be too much to just come off AD's altogether. I'd suggest you switch back, get yourself stable, wait until you don't have quite so much s**t in your personal life, and then take stock of the situation again.
Your path is just like mine, but 3 months behind!!
How on earth could they get that diagnosis wrong. Short or long QT is easily visible!! Good grief - that must have been a shock for you. They probably jumped to conclusions due to Citalopram known for doing that in some patients, but people can have QT syndrome for years without knowing. People even die not knowing.

Coffee was really very bad for me during withdrawl and for quite some time after. One cup in the morning and I trully regretted it all day - depression and anxiety hit very hard. It's best to stay off of it even though it is very tempting. Once I was pretty stable for a while I could manage a cup of black tea in the morning. Now I can have a cup of coffee in the morning - so it isn't forever

Has anyone had the feeling of like your gonna die soon like dwelling on it I keep looking up after life stuff and paranormal stuff I cant sem to focus on anything else atm
EXACTLY where I was this time last year. I have so many books on the topic that I bought. Seriously. Colin Fry, George Anderson, Helen Greaves, James Van Praagh, Sylvia Browne - and these are just the authors I can bring to mind. Tell what sort of thing you would like to read, and I will point you in the right direction.
Don't be scared or ashamed to read. It will really help. Just be mindful of some of the opinions of some authors. Again, I can tell you which IMO are the ones to read.
I have never admitted this to anyone online, but I am also a qualified Parapsychologist. In my earlier life, I used to investigate paranormal/after life phenomena.
I'm a weirdo aren't I.... :s

OK - Scole Experiment (still a valid and respected early proof), the work of Gary Schwartz (esp. "The Afterlife Experiments"), and the files of Leslie Flint.
That should get you started.Try to approach everything on the middle ground and not entirely as a skeptic. If something is unproven, it can go either way. In my experience, there is so much more evidence by comparison to the contrary. But everyone needs to arrive at their own conclusion.

My friend experimented NDE last year, he didn't want to come back but had to. They all say that once you've lived A near death experience, no one wants to come back. Beautiful stuff to read.

I, too, am very interested in the paranormal. There are several TV shows that I watch - Ghost Adventures, Paranormal Survivor, and Dead Files to name a few - they are fascinating to me! These are all real things that these people have experienced.
I believe in the paranormal but have not experienced anything except the beautiful cardinals that my daughter sends me.
The lady in Dead Files has the ability to see dead people and they see her and she can talk with them as well. Sometimes these are not things that I would like to see.
Thank you for the book info - I will be checking them out...

Yes Gail... of course. How could I forget Dr Moody - oh and Kubler-Ross (sp?). She was the leader behind it all and did some fantastic work.
NDE's are a huge thing now that people are open to talking about them. Do you know the famous "red shoe" story?
Regarding mediums, I am convinced that they loose their abilities as they get older, and as the grey matter deteriorates. But due to the pressure and hype, a lot of them carry on. Van Praagh has lost it a lot and I wish he would just retire with his hubby and two dogs.
I shy away from the TV stuff myself - prefer to read. Could give you some wonderful stories of my experiences Trying

I think it would be a good idea to focus on something else right now. If this is triggering your anxiety it's best to give it a rest. Go for a walk or watch some mindless tv. Anything else that can distract you?

"why are there so many people out there who say it's made up or they poke holes in the experiments"
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. It still baffles me why people go out of their way to make attempts to disprove something like this. But Juli is right, if this is causing overthinking, wait until you are in the right mind to enjoy reading about it. Don't go with anything too intellectually heavy - something a bit lighter perhaps. Experiments may cause you to create more of a thinking chain reaction.
"If I was on celexa for 8 years and been off for about 2 months could I still be feeling the effects of withdrawl"
On the contrary, I would be amazed if you weren't. When I stopped Citalopram June last year (weened off over 2 weeks - way too quick), I was still having withdrawal in October. Don't let that scare you, but just to say this is par for the course.

Good man. Stay strong - you'll get thru this.

As usual he is right on the money.
