Hello, For me it has been the gradual improvement via the 2 steps forward 1 step back for the most part. There were really bad times that lasted a long time but once I was through them I knew I had made some progress toward feeling better. Ups and downs could happen hourly and daily, and then I would be in continuous suffering for weeks and weeks and then I would finally catch a break and usually feel like I had improved. There is no systematic process in how we heal from this syndrome and that is what makes it so hard. But that also means that you could start feeling better tomorrow! So don’t look so far into the future and think that you will feel then as you do now because there is no way you can know that, and your break could come at any time. If you can, try to stay focused on the present moment and making the best of today that you can. You just need to do that for enough days and the healing will happen and the improvements will start to show up. I hope that you will feel healing very soon, Pug 20+ years of Zoloft 50-100 mg CT 03/2014 for 5 months Back on Prozac 20 mg for 4 months CT since 11/2014 Found this forum the last day of 2014 The secret is to keep going!
