Hello

Hi everyone, I actually came here a lot almost 20 years ago when I had my first experience with depression, happy to see it is still here and active as it helped me cope and recover. Unfortunately I made a very bad decision to discontinue 150mg Effexor (even though I did it under my price supervision) which is been on since getting mono brought on an episode for me in 2015. As has happened in the past went three months off and then crashed, now anxious, tearful, waking up way too early, Im sure you are all unfortunately familiar with it. Been struggling really hard for a week and today took one of the Effexor 75mg left over from my taper. Wed going to see my pdoc and get a plan in place. Anyway UGH I feel very regretful that I put myself thru this again, its very hard, but Im hopeful I can have success again (this is my 4th go round). anyway, hi everyone

Yes, we do. I even think back to episodes in the hospital years ago almost as if they were happy days.
