Tip on W.D

Posted by willyee on April 25, 2007, at 21:00:32

My first drug was effexxor,given to me with little knowledge of what it was,or anything else,just told take it and id feel better in 2 weeks.

Well obviously that wasnt the case,and after voice mails UNRETURNED,and my doc getting smart to my father,i mutualy FIRED my doc as he also as i doubt would have taken me after the threat i made to him.I was high strung,upset on the unreturned calls,upset about my mind going insane and the shot at my father was the last straw so i kinda jumped at him.

Anyway point is i was on my on,there was very little info about effexor and withdrawal,this was the time when ssris were touted as the safest thing on earth.

So what was happening to me? I was off the drug and felt i was going insane,brain zaps,loss of emotion and sense of person,mind a blank grey page,i had no clue.

So what i did,and this might help some people,is well it sounds silly but get urself a good video game,even if u dont play them,try it,youd be surprised,and let urself become obsesses with it,playing this one game kept my mind occupied and helped regain some cognitive function,i made it through WD to at least get on a different med,but i did it with no benzos,or tools or support or knowing what it was,looking back now id have used all these to help,but a simple video game helped me make it through,just a recomendation,some games can be quite addictive.
