Hindsite-why I vote for meds... Athena

> well...perhaps these feelings are normal "life" feelings? Personally, I don't think that feelings in "normal life" are really supposed to be so baseline, as in NOT extremes. I agree, after coming off my meds, I too have extremes, but somehow this makes me feel more alive. Is this odd? Or is this normal and the meds are what's NOT normal.

You know, I was just talking to my wife about this exact subject but in reverse. I have been off the ssri's for about three months and mentioned that I have noticed that my moods swings have been acting up much more lately. She told me that she has noticed a huge difference in my moods, mood swings, and anxiety but was afraid to tell me. She noted several examples of these swings in mood that I had overlooked as 'just being my normal self'. I now look back at these examples and in hindsite I can see how these swings have affected various events in the last couple months (negatively). I have made the decision to go back on an ssri, either prozac, or maybe celexa which I haven't tried. I have made the decision that the chemical imbalances or whatever it is that I have, affect my life negatively and when I was on the medication I was much more stable. They have helped me become more 'normal' and able to deal with the ups and downs in life on a much more rational level. My moods are what is making life have innapropriate extremes. Am I making any sense here? I agree that most people don't need meds, but I definitely think I do as proven by the quality of my life when on them and the decay of quality life when not on them.
