Hi Jen,

please let me know what your doc will advise you on Friday, okay? I think I'll be not the only one here who is interested.
I'm thinking of ending my marriage, otherwise I will have to live with smbody who doesnt know how to love (or even just show enough of love). The problem is that he is not bad enough to make this easier. It's like we have this saying in my country "Don't exchange the good thing that you already have, for the better thing that you will maybe have." So, I think I'll need smth like Effexor for a while. And yes, I yell and cry much less since I'm on it too, which is very good for me. Thanks for keeping in touch! :)

> Hi Tatarka,
> It's amazing how uprooting oneself from one's home can have such profound psychological effects, particularly in combination with other stressors.
> I've got a couple of good friends now that I can rely on, which is good, and my relationship is at least more civil (since my episode) and not so intense as in the past. I'm able to keep my emotions a little more in check now so I do less yelling. I guess that's the Effexor.
> I'm going to talk to my doc on Friday about Effexor side effects/withdrawal and the benefits of switching to something else, but it appears that there are upsides and downsides to just about any drug.
> I hope that you're doing better. Thanks for your post.

> > Hey Jen, couldn't stop myself to follow up your post. So many similarities in our situation! I moved to another country three and half years ago, and I knew NOONE beside my husband with whome I have very difficult relationship. Plus I couldn't speak English at all! The only thing that excited me was that I'm far away from that nightmare in my original country.
> > I also had heart palpitations all the time and felt like i'm going to die. I was really-really depressed, and decided try to see psychiatrist as psychologist didnt help much and besides psychiatrist is for free - by referral from physichian.
> > Just wanted to share these similarities with you and let you know that someone like me perfectly understand your feelings. I still dont have any friends here (just one buddy-girl at work), and my marriage life didnt improve much (although therapy sessions do help to solve some issues).
> > I'm planning to get off Effexor as soon as possible, but I still need smth to switch to :( Good luck to you!!
