Thanks for the replies! I feel better knowing there are some of you with a lot of sober time and needing meds. I had six years sober and drank. I'm back with a little over two years. Maybe I was self medicating when I went out. I know since starting the Effexor XR, (I'm on 75mgs now) my brain has slowed down. I feel less compulsive, including when I eat. I have actually been stopping when I'm full. I sat down and began reading a book today. This is the first time in years. I, for some reason, could only read magazines or college text books for my degree. I wonder if this is the meds also? The knot in my stomach is gone. If this keeps up like this, I'll be o.k. I also yawned a lot less today and smiled a lot more. I seemed to have a lot more patience with my five year old daughter than usual.

One of you reminded me about the man on the roof story, when God sent various forms of transportation. Thanks, I needed to hear that. I haven't felt this good in awhile. I hope it keeps working. I still can't help wishing I was "normal".

Thanks again. I can't tell you how grateful I am to know you're out there.
