day 6 of cymbalta withdrawal.

im having non stop brain zaps. i am crying all the time. i suddenly thought about the fact that i bought flowers for my friends funeral over a year ago, and that realization made me start crying even more. just called my nurse and told her i was having withdrawal symptoms- and she said i dont know if its withdrawal, but just going back to baseline.
well whatever the fuck you call it, i'm having it! fuck you!

Just want you to know that even though i don't know you, my thoughts are with you. Take care.

The day I believe SSRI's don't have real withdrawal symptoms is the day I believe the Earth was created in six days. The first time I went through brain zaps and sobbing jags, I thought I was going insane.

And it wasn't going back to baseline for me. Everything evened out. For a while, at least. I am, of course, back on the SSRI now. (For all the good it's doing. I'm more on it for generalized anxiety than for depression.)
