Good Morning,
I am also tapering. Faster maybe than I think I should or maybe not? I have been on 150 mg for about 5 years. started missing days here and there. Wanted to taper down, went to 75mg for 5 weeks, then 37.5mg for 1 week, now on 25mg for 10 days. The brain zaps are more frequent now. The past 2 days quite often with the 25 mg taper. I am in a really stressful relationship which dosen't help. He is not supportive. He and his 10 year old daughter live with me. I am trying to hold it together, hoping to feel normal soon. Not sure what normal is actually? But I know I don't want to be on a brain altering medication anymore. Of course I am also going through menopause along with this. Life is a joy. But I will persevere. I have to I have a beautiful 3 year old granddaughter. She needs her Mimi...

I’m so sorry to hear everything you’re currently going through.
Sounds like a really tough situation. Thank you for responding.
Hold in there. I too no longer want to be on a mind altering medication. I want to know which emotions are mine. I don’t remember what it feels like to be me anymore.
