> Sorry to cut in... I think that "blah" "just here" feeling might be what it's like to be normal instead of either high or low... and I don't particularly like it... I was like that on Wellbutrin. Quite frankly, I like the high that these SSRIs aren't supposed to be giving us.

I didn't really feel "blah" before I took an SSRI for the first time. I was just getting tired (only on lithium), and it was seasonal depression time, and I was supposed to start the Prozac (1991). It worked marvelously, but it also changed my personality back into a kind of silly adolescent which I didn't figure out till much later was hypomania. Also, I seemed to "feel better" whenever I was pissed off. Now, I limit the dose way down just enough to quell some anxiety and that's about it. If I stop an SSRI entirely, however, I just feel flat and humorless, and antisocial. That *might* fade with some time, but I don't want to go there.
