I for one appreciate this Janice. Thank you for sharing it, for it speaks to me. I think we all need to remember that the kind of pain we suffer brings out in us something from the deepest darkest places and it is not always kind or pretty.

I have been on Celexa, 20mg, for a few weeks now after going off Zolft, 50mg, due to joint and muscle aches. I have tried at least a dozen medications and have suffered horrible side effects. So far the Celexa seems to be working but I never like to speak too soon. I just do not want to relapse.
