Hi people thought i would update things (one Yr OFF Cymbalta) I still have depression , not any worse
but in a somewhat better position mentally than when i was on Cymbalta .
I am an emotional person , so after 30 years of near no emotion i
guess im finding my " Ground " of who i really am .
So im a guy that feels , thats me .
Still in contact with my Psychiatrist who has " Encouraged " me to go back on " Something "
I told and tell him " I was depressed taking antidepressants , i still have a certain amount of depression
but now a bit more emotional , so na , dont want to go back on that bandwagon "
In a nutshell its been a fairly ok yr as far as that go's , Corona hey ?
Ive got to know myself again , i am the guy who feels the pain
i see others carry , im ok with that and am so over " Doctors " trying to mask pain with medication it really
isnt the best option in the long run . Grief and sadness is a part of life . Masking pain with medication can
cause long term dependance thats a certainty .
As ive said previously " Their is no escape plan , only a dependance " I made the right choice and am now 1 yr
off anti-depressants , i have no intention of ever taking them again .
I will feel whatever life throws at me good and bad , i will not let this medical system get me to be barely functional.
Please to the people that are taking anti-depressants , if they are helping im happy for you but just listen to your body
dont take as FACT what the mental health ppl say is best for you because in my case it wasnt .
My only regret is that i didnt do this 2 decades ago , they do make it hard to come off , why is that ?
God bless you all .
