Boy, you've really got guts. Who do you talk to about all this?

I was on the old version (still making) of Effexor, but my reaction to Effexor-XR is so different. It was the first drug that made something 'go off' in my dulled brain.

I wish I had not burdened my grown children with my BpersonalityD/PTSD, but they are the only ones left in my life.

People think I don't like them, even my own mother thinks I hate her,...which is so far from the truth. I used to be so very different, loving people, and having a lot of family and friends in a wonderful life.

I lost my people skills somewhere during 30+ years of abuse to my mind and body.

Currently trying dialectical behavioral therapy.

I have a chronic injury and a major internal problem that I cannot afford to deal with, so just have to let-em-ride. My best friend and love of my life passed away Feb. and, like he, I lost 10 lbs. I am 5'5" and weigh 105lbs, feel so weak; think grieving is still taking its toll.

I hope you have someone that you talk with. best wishes cf

> Thank you for your prayers. In answer to my symptoms: Severe pain on right side, sick at my stomach most of the time, very tired all the time, swelling all over my body, mostly feet and legs, and liver works overtime producing cholesterol and fat. Liver disease is incurable and I know that God is my only answer. I ask him to heal me daily.
> I don't think age has anything to do with what effexor does to a person or how well you withdraw from it. I'm 56 and have been taking it since 1997. It first came out in 1996. I started with 37.5mg and worked up to 150 a day. I reduced it to 75 a day because I did not like the way I felt on 150, so most of the time I was only on 75mg. I should have gone to a Dr. sooner but I am a person who always procrastinates. Unfortunately I always try to treat myself and it doesn't always work. Actually it seldom works but that is hindsight and nothing I can do about it now. There is one cure and that is a liver transplant. I have checked with Accurian and found they are doing some kind of clinical trials on people with liver disease and high cholesterol. I have been trying to get on one but have not yet suceeded.
> If anyone knows of a chat room or a site like this for people with liver disease I would like to find one. Although I read the posts on here everyday I don't post often because I don't feel well enough, but they have been a Godsend for me. I don't have much support because I don't talk about it to my children. I don't know how to tell them or if I should and I don't want them feeling bad or treating me any different. They are so busy with my grandchildren and their own lives. I don't get to see them as much as I did because I don't drive much anymore. Well I'm starting to ramble so I'll close for now. God Bless You, Sammi B.
