Today is a big day for me. I’ve decided I’m ready to go off Zoloft which I’ve been taking for just over 2 years now. The year before I started Zoloft I was having panic attacks a few times a week, anxiety daily, could hardly leave my house without having a panic attack and was opting to just stay home, I was avoiding people at all cost, all of this was also creating depression in my life. I tried natural approaches for a year, working out, meditation, yoga, lavender oil, read many motivational books, stopped coffee, ate foods that were supposed to help ease stress, prayed lots, nothing helped. I was at the end of my rope and even though I told myself I’d never get back on Zoloft again because I hate pharmaceuticals if they can be avoided. I knew I had to give it a try again because I was extremely miserable. The process of going on Zoloft was a little rough with some heightened anxiety until my body got used to it. Once it leveled out in my body I felt amazing once again. I felt like myself finally! I haven’t had a single panic attack in over 2 years and my anxiety has been minimal. I felt like being social again and was smiling everyday instead of crying. I finally feel like I’m in a good place in my life again and I’m ready to take myself off the meds. I’m going to blog about the process, how my body feels going off meds, how my social interactions go, etc. I’m going to continue to try natural approaches and see what helps. Feel free to follow my blog. I hope it can help someone or at least shed light on a condition that many people suffer from but I feel like it’s not talked about enough.
