friday confessional

I was on anti-depressants for the last five years. When I quit taking them I had horrible physical and mental withdrawals. I have been off of them for almost seven months now and nearly everyday is a challenge for me. Not because I think I am a depressed person, but because the medication dulled my senses and made me feel like nothing mattered, everything was cool. Once it wore off I was like one big open nerve ending with no coping skills.

Now I am learning how to live again.
