for-those-who-are-feeling-desperate-or-suicidal I'm not suicidal as I have small kids and I could never do this to them and to my husband. But I think of death every day and how nice it would be to get relief from all this:( Is this common in withdrawal and will it go away?
I was on 50mg of zoloft for 19 months. My psychiatrist got me off the drug so quickly that I have experienced major withdrawals including suicidal thoughts. I have seen darkness that I hope to never see again in August of 2018. I recognized that those dark feelings were not mine and I tried to do whatever it took to overcome it. I have a 10 year old son, he was my main motivation, but sadly he was not enough. As a last straw, I purposely reached out to my financial adviser to check with him if my life insurance covered suicide to either make sure my son would be taken care of financially, or that I was not covered to give me another incentive to fight. I have overcome the feelings. I hope you don't mid, I share the emails I exchanged with my financial adviser. Please fight with every ounce of your being!!! Do not let the drug whisper lies to you. Things will get better. Call suicide hotlines, call/talk to your friends/family, go to the emergency room, but FIGHT!!! As difficult as it is, tell yourself those feelings are not yours, they are not real. I am still battling severe depression, but the dark thoughts are gone. Here below are my emails. I hope some may find this helpful. Aug 30, 2018, 8:29 AM To G Hi, Does my life insurance cover in case of suicide? Please let me know. Thank you. Aug 30, 2018, 9:36 AM to me Hey, I hope all is well. There is a two year contestability clause in the contract. If you commit suicide in the first 2 years they will contest the claim. Is everything OK?. Call me if you need to talk. Best, G Aug 30, 2018, 9:51 AM to G Being completely honest with you. No, I am not ok. I needed to hear that they would contest the claim so that I can have another incentive to keep living in this cruel world. At least that will give me 2 more years fighting for my life, because I got this insurance to protect my little one. Hopefully then, I will be better. Aug 30, 2018, 10:29 AM to me I would go back to therapy so you have someone who can help you work through your feelings. Life can be very hard, at times...but it's a beautiful thing. I can promise you that you will not feel this way forever, you need to keep getting up and keep moving forward. Your son needs you...no one can ever replace you in his life. If you are unhappy with your life, change it...don't end it. You are a beautiful person and ending your life may stop the momentary pain, but it will pass it on to those you love most. This too shall pass and you will be happy again...be strong...don't give up! Stay in touch with me...I'm here if you need to vent.
I'm going to just copy my signature here to get this started.... Been on antidepressants for years. Tried to get off 7 years ago, was off for about 4 months, had a major life event and I jumped too quickly to get back on them. About 2 1/2 years ago, I happened on to theroadback.org and spent a year and half getting down to 75 mg./dy of Effexor with the assistance of those supplements. Was down in the dumps, and couldn't adjust so after a few months of that, dr. switched me to Wellbutrin, and then added Zoloft after about 3 months. After months of not being able to get it completely regulated, I started getting a headache 24/7. I felt sure it was from the Zoloft cuz I had a headache at a higher dosage of that. Dr wanted me to go off of that and start something else. I stopped the Zoloft after only two weeks of tapering but didn't start the something else. Headache still. Started pouring in the supplements suggested theroadback.org program. Two weeks later, I couldn't get back in to see the dr. and pretty much cold turkey stopped the Wellbutrin. Said I would NEVER do that, but I did. It has been 7 weeks since stopping the Zoloft and 5 weeks since stopping the Wellbutrin. I have been faithfully taking the supplements suggested in theroadback.org. Headaches finally stopped about a week to a week and a half ago. Having some depression and anxiety now. Not major, but it is there! I would really like to use less of Neutrogenetic Solutions supplements simply because the cost. More to tell, really, but that's enough for now!
