I'm a good and solid 18 months into 0 mg Lexapro - in some ways it feels longer, and in others, almost yesterday.

I can relate SO MUCH to Neuro emotions - they are by far the worst part of withdrawal.

For me I've had a LOT of them flare up.

The longer you are at 0mg, the easier it is to see that they must be a N.E. flare up and not "you".

It's the same for my background "noise" of withdrawal in my head 24/7... it lessens and you can see things for what they are - your baseline improves.

 

I've also used some of my neuro emtions for good in a way of recent too!

I found out a lot of negative stuff was happening behind my back at work - about me.

It filled me with a sense of truth about myself - about being proud of who I am!!!

That sense of pride wasn't normal given the situation, but on reflection it was likely neuro emotion.

I was able to distance myself - and my true nature became apparent to others... and shone through.

They ALL admitted they were wrong, and apologized - honestly apologized, and things have been so much better ever since.

Im so glad to hear yours are getting better! This is my second time coming off Lexapro and I'm feeling worse than ever and I'm just trying to keep in mind that my brain is still damaged and I have to wait it out. I just hate not knowing how long it will take

Is anyone going through extreme judgment/dark thoughts about other people, in wd? I am not like that. I'm a humanist and these dark, intrusive judgmental thoughts hurt me.

@gemini I have had these for the last 2.5 years all through WD. Please tell me these went away for you? How long did they ask? It makes me feel awful.

I am not sure if this is the right place to post this...since Thanksgiving I started feeling better relatively speaking and my anxiety was mild and I was able to do more outside of the house.  The past week my anxiety has been high, full of fear, crying a lot.  I am assuming these a neuro emotions and will eventually subside.  I'm so afraid this will never go away.

Does anyone experience getting really emotional (bursting into tears) when watching a video? Like, in a movie, when the good guys win against the bad guys, or watching animals save humans on YouTube, I tear up and almost start crying.

Could disturbing suicidal thoughts be classed as a neuro emotion? I've had them since taking Sertraline almost 2 years ago as well as anhedonia. They are almost gone though, but it is very confusing, I have periods when I'm ok now then ten minutes of this horrible delusion which makes me question myself. Lithium orotate has really helped me, mainly the apathy I have now, it is constant though, no sense of enjoyment or motivation about anything.

Many people here have had thoughts of suicide, it's a normal reaction when you think you have no options. Having thoughts of suicide is not the same as being suicidal. They're just thoughts.

 

Please do not make yourself worse by worrying about passing thoughts of doing yourself in. Bat them away like any other disturbing thought. See
