**That's probably a good idea. I was pretty confident my approach was going to work- at the time I posted that message. By about 5:00 PM that evening, I started to get to get hit by really brutal head surges, which are even worse this morning (on my walk to the university, it was like I was repeatedly being slammed in the head by a huge biker or something; the surges literally blot out the sound of traffic at the intersection when they happen).

you know, those head surges are AWFUL! it really makes me wonder what these drugs are doing to
our heads to have that kind of a reaction when
we go off! i'm starting to think i'd rather be
depressed and drug free then have those chemicals
doing weird junk to my brain!!!!!!!
anti-depressants are relatively new, how do we
know they are not doing more damage to our brains
than it is worth?

happy holidays to all,
