You are such a brave and fierce soul. Your setback might be your strength so that’s nice news that you made it through and stayed free! i’m still terrified my ween’s gonna hit me any minute so I’m working hard at what I need to do to stay present. I’ve got a long way to go soooooooo…..here we go.

So, it’s day 6 of my wean and I’m not feeling much…..yet….. went to my doc and she was not happy with my decision but I’m going to chalk it up as a concerned doc. She said I might not be able to completely get off meds because I’ve been on too long…10 years. I’m doing it anyway. I expect to feel something but I’m also using my usual cbd with thc mix oil.

I’m very curious though how many weaned off Effexor successfully and are happy with their decision.

I counted mine couple days ago and got 110 beads in my 37.5 mg. I’ll need to do the same

Try to be kind to yourself. The main thing is you valiantly tried and just because you need to go back on, it’s all about the quality of your life. I also may need to make that decision so big pat on the back, could not have been easy for you.

Absolutely he’ll come with me, no question lol! My episodes have been particularly strong the past year and my counsellor said because I minimized my traumas, I kept living above that line to survive. I had a great life, good jobs, very creative so I never thought in a million years this would rear its ugly head. I’m finally able to talk about my trauma but with lots of shakiness inside my belly and very spent. Next weeks topic?….my mother. Long story but I know I’ll make it through. Thanks everyone, I feel like I’m getting hugs every time I come here..🤗

Thank you. It’s so helpful to know I’m not on my own and help is there. I just journaled my day and realized I really need to practice more of my self soothing and grounding especially when a strong episodes comes on. Was also thinking the Valium thing and I already have cbds. If it wasn’t for my partner today, I might have done my run away stint lol! He wants to come with me to my next counselling session to find out what he can do for me during my wean. He unfortunately becomes my target yet somehow he still loves me when I make it through….bless him.

I’m on a crying jag today too, had a fantastic productive day yesterday and I felt very content and then this! So up and down and very difficult to control. My counsellor has been showing me ways to ground myself but man, it’s freakn hard to do during an episode like this. I haven’t even started my wean yet! How am I going to make it thru this when I start? Feel like my brain is broken. Tomorrow it will get better right?
