dear janelle,

how were your emotions before? i ask because i've referred to myself as an "emotional hemophiliac," all guffaws and sobs, i'd get twised over all osorts of things...and my meds(prozac, klonopin, neurontin) have quelled the hemophilia to the point that i feel like a somwhat normal person (emotionally, at least!)

my own NON-PROFESSIONAL OPINION is that it can be good to be numbed for a bit in the face of a desperate situation--effexor numbed me a bit after i found myself broke, homeless, possession-less, boyfriendless--i still feel as if i need to be heavuly medicated for awhile, maybe forever.

but i think holding onto to the rudimentary emotions is so important. tears clog, and then they hurt more. and doesn't it feel so good to genuinely laugh?

i laughed for six hours straight when i went off effexor. i was literally rolling around on the floor. it seems a sketchy drug to me, but many others have had success. the ole Your Mileage May Vary thing.

if you are not content with your meds you shpuld discuss all details with your pdoc.
