Great to have you here Aeroman, and everybody else who is helping those of us on this long, long journey to recovery! Thank you for your dedication and all of your help!

 

Alto, if it weren't for you and this site I would be a bigger mess than I am today. I had believed the garbage my doctor and other incompetent people were telling me. I started to believe I had mysteriously developed bipolar or ocd in a matter of two months but it was just my too fast taper off sertraline causing the horrifying symptoms. I knew in my gut it was withdrawal, but had no way to prove or confirm it. Thanks to SA, I am finally able to start healing. So thank you!!!

Very pleased to announce that the good Gridley and MollyN have joined us as moderators.

 

Gridley is in the midst of tapering a range of drugs and has had to make the difficult decisions regarding deconstructing a drug cocktail. Since he joined us almost exactly a year ago, he's become quite knowledgeable.

 

MollyN, who has graced our community for more than 3 years, is another well-spoken New Zealander. She had a bit of a bumpy road off Paxil but and is now recovering in all kinds of ways.

 

Please welcome Gridley and MollyN to our moderator team.

Many of you will know manymoretodays from her distinctive writing style and wry sense of humor. Here is her Introductions topic.

 

Manymoretodays, a former RN, came here almost 2 years ago after nearly 40 years on countless psychiatric drugs. She was tapering Adderall and Trileptal and feeling overwhelmed and isolated.

 

She is now completely off drugs and feeling much stronger. She has been a valuable contributor to the community and, I am pleased to say, has agreed to join our moderator team.

 

Please welcome our newest moderator, manymoretodays.

Please welcome SkyBlue to our fine moderator team.

 

After several years of tapering, she knows all there is to know about going off Paxil. She's about to say goodbye to Paxil forever, then....taper Zoloft.

 

Welcome, SkyBlue.

Yes, I agree.

 

All we need now is for Altostrata to rename herself Cirrostrata, or preferably Cirrus, which is at a much higher altitude.

Altostratus clouds are related to Nimbostratus which give rainfall.

Yes, I know!  Trust a geek who has worked for over 50 years in that crazy world, to rain on the parade!

Thanks, peng. For a long while, I was lower-flying and a little rainy.

Well I reckon many of us have been "on the deck" when "even the seagulls were walking", to coin a couple of the pilots' favourite lines.

I'm happy to announce that Carmie has joined our fine group of moderators.

 

Carmie's calm encouragement has charmed all of us. She's been on and off a raft of drugs for chronic pain, coping with awful withdrawal symptoms, and has been tapering 300mg Seroquel for years, now down to 7.5mg.

 

Please welcome Carmie to our staff.
