Re: 11 month update

Sorry, I missed that there had been more replies somehow! Thanks so much--these are all such good questions to ponder. I've been pretty good about exercising in the eves, but I used to do some in...

Re: One Year Off

Congratulations again for making it to a year, Caperjackie! Argh, I can relate. Right now I'm feeling how you do in version 1, but earlier today I was closer to version 2, so I'm hopeful this will...

Re: 11 month update

Thanks very much--this really comforted to me. And it wouldn't surprise me at all that ADs and WD affect our hormones, too!

YES, this confusion is the pits...so sorry you're feeling it, too. It's like I have no purpose in life anymore.

One thing I did last week that really lifted my spirits: volunteered for the...

Re: 11 month update

Thanks, Laurie! You're right--a lot can change in 8 years, and I'm sure crazy hormone fluctuations are playing a role here. At least I'm not having hot flashes right now (knock on wood) :) ...

Re: Stomach problems and health anxiety

Sorry you've been feeling poorly, Grandma D. I remember having nausea on and off during WD, and I do think anxiety can have a huge effect on our digestive systems!

My stomach issues are much...

11 month update

Hi all,

I can't quite believe it's been a bit over 11 months since I took that last pill sliver. On the good side, I'm long over the insomnia and bouts of extreme anxiety/muscle tension/rage/severe...

Re: IBS type symptoms

Thanks, Nicole. Back when this first started, my doctor had me take a course of medication for C-difficile, in case that was the problem (I probably should have insisted on a test first,...

Re: IBS type symptoms

I started having IBS-D about five years ago after I reinstated paxil following a failed attempt to get off of it--still don't know if it was related or not (I'd also recently taken high-powered...

Re: Does Anyone Here Have Gastritis?

I'm thinking both of these are culprits (especially after seeing all of the posts here), maybe worsened because I'm also going through menopause. My endoscopy yesterday went really well (love the...

Re: I could use some help/support with continued insomnia/anxiety

So sorry you're going through this, Julie. You've already received some great advice (I'm going to look for the book, too), but one thing I found helpful during my insomnia WD waves was taking a hot...

Re: Depression

Nicole, you're so right--I felt the same way! Interestingly, I just read a story about memory and a possible memory-inhibition drug (argh!) in the newest Wired magazine that talks about how whenever...

Thanks, Laurie. I've got a bunch of candied ginger here, maybe I'll try making some tea with it.

Re: Stomach problems and health anxiety

Re: Anhedonia

I apologize for hijacking this thread, but I'm confused about this whole anhedonia thing, and wondering if someone can explain it to me. The emotional numbness I felt while on paxil was anhedonia...

Re: five things i love about being off paxil

Well, some--though not all--of my old pre-paxil anxiety issues have definitely returned, but I think I'm handling them much better and actually learning how to deal with anxiety instead of avoiding...

Re: five things i love about being off paxil

I'm glad you bumped this--reading it over again was a good reminder for me that, even though I'm dealing with some of my old anxieties again, getting off paxil was the right choice. Now that some...

Re: Stomach problems and health anxiety

Thank you so much, Laurie--your post makes me feel better! I'm sure you're right about anxiety being a culprit, and that's probably why I didn't have stomach issues while on paxil. I really need to...

Stomach problems and health anxiety

Hi all,

Since going off paxil I've been having occasional problems with stomach gas that I'd pretty much written off as either anxiety-related or hormonal, since I'm well into perimenopause. These...

Re: Blood Pressure

It's possible, if that drop has made you anxious. I'd always had normal BP before I went on paxil, and the first time I came off, after tapering too fast (though I didn't know that was the reason at...

Re: Fear has got its grips in me bad. I am very scared!

Congrats on getting to zero, Jason!

I understand your fear--I've always had a phobia about throwing up, and just feeling nauseous will really raise my anxiety (especially if it happens in public)....
