Quitting EffexorXR has been uneventful. My advice to anyone worried about quitting Effexor is, muh, take it slow.

The possibility of sinking back into depression was a bit spooky, but it hasn't happened. I have a few theories as to why it hasn't happened and without going too far into the weeds I blame the media. I know that sounds crazy, but hear me out.

I've nearly stopped interacting with media a few years back: TV/News/Movies/Pop Culture, all of it and it has made such a wonderful change in my general outlook.

I believe the media to be a major contributing factor of mental illness and here's why. From day one we are plopped in front of a TV that tells us we are supposed to be rich/glamorous/beautiful/amazing super humans and no one is able to measure up. We are given an unattainable standard.

Media is also a constant source of agitation. Bad guys are out to shoot us, the weather is going to drown/freeze/cook us. Products are going to kill us. Cell phones are going to give us brain cancer. It never stops.

Merry Christmas and enough of my rant.

Love you all, especially those in pain.
