Well, had a little panick attack type thing in a store today. I felt like I was either going to puke right then and now or faint ... so I ran out of the store and I was all dizzy and lost but it turned out I was just majorly hungry ... a close to fainting type of hungry.

I think that the withdrawal is sort of numbing me from myself... kind of hard to explain. I tend to spill things and drop things and hurt myself (unintentionally) on things because I only realise that they are there once they're imbeded in my skin. Kind of annoying.

It sort of feels like being drunk .. all day ... but you don't feel happy about it.

I feel that my willpower is being tested somewhat more but I mean ... my determination to break free of effexor is still stronger than that.

And when the willpower runs short, I feed it with the anger. Anger that I wasn't told how horrible the addiction would be. Anger that I wans't told I could be stuck on this all my life ... and definately anger at my doctor in general. For giving me 4x the normal starting dose of antipsychotics ... to supposedly "help the insomnia" ... ya thanks doc ... thanks very much ... especially for not warning me ... especially for not telling me NOT to drive. That would have been nice ... you know since it gave me absence seizures every hour or so ... good thing I don't own a car beceause I would probably have killed myself or someone else when I blacked out.

This is also something I notice ... anger. Its like it is re-emerging from wherever it was hiding before. Libido is also saying hello. Thats a nice one ... after two years and what not ... its about freaking time.

I guess I'm sort of starting to "feel" things more intensely and what not.

Its good to know about the Celexa though ... if it gets too rough I'll probably just pop a 20mg Celexa (my normal daily dose) instead of popping the Effexor.

I just with I knew how long this will take to either reach the "full force withdrawal" so I have an idea of when I can start thinking that I might win this and what not.

But so far so good, I'm stronger than you mister Effexor ... nyah nyah nyah nyah nyahhhh! :P

I will most likely keep updating this post. Wether I win or not ... who knows, other people might benefit from the information.
