I'm really grateful that my sister helped me in my first week without zoloft & then convinced me to go back on the antidepressant. If this is you're first time to this blog you might be a bit confused, so please read the previous post to get a better understanding.
Basically, I was prescribed zoloft by my doctor 4 years ago for PMDD and would really like to get off antidepressants completely. But you know what? It's hard. Really hard! I knew it would be, but I guess I thought I could just do it my way. Anyway, long story short & I've realized that this will likely be a long journey that I can't just do cold turkey.
So, I've reduced my dosage to 100 mg (from 200 mg) and I'm trying to keep focused on my goals & targets. PMDD is severe for me and it's hard to explain here. Here are a few of the symptoms I experience for 2 weeks of every month:
- constant nagging thoughts about weight gain
- trouble sleeping (I wake up at 3 or 4am every night worrying about something I don't need to worry about)
- sensitive & a bit neurotic
- breast tenderness
Anyway, I've mentioned before that I'm really into the whole Law of Attraction idea, so I posted the above video that I found on You Tube for you to see. I don't know how to make videos like the one above, but it would be very cool to have my own little video to watch every morning as I wake up. I think my video would focus on health, wealth & happiness but I guess that's what everyone would do isn't it?
Do you take Zoloft or another antidepressant for PMDD like I do? Don't be shy! Please leave your thoughts below.
