Recommended Posts

I just tried to view Gianna Kali's BEYOND MEDS blog and it prompted me to sign-in if I've been invited to view the blog!? Does anyone know what's going on? I always liked this blog as she had cutting edge info and great links to relevant news stories.

 

Hmm...I hope everything is OK.

Been on SSRIs since 1998:

1998-2005: Paxil in varying doses

2005-present: Lexapro.

2006-early '08: Effexor AND Lexapro! Good thing I got off the Effexor rather quickly (within a year).

 

**PSYCHIATRY: TAKE YOUR CHEMICAL IMBALANCE AND CHOKE ON IT!

APA=FUBAR

FDA=SNAFU

NIMH=LMFAO

 

Currently tapering Lexapro ~10% every month:

 

STARTING: 15 mg

11/7/10: 13.5 mg

12/7/10: 12.2 mg

1/6/11: 10.9 mg

2/3/11: 9.8 mg

3/3/11: 8.8 mg

4/1/11: 7.8 mg

4/29/11: 7 mg

5/27/11: 6.4 mg

6/24/11: 5.7 mg

7/22/11: 5 mg

8/18/11: 4.5 mg

9/14/11: 4 mg

10/13/11: 3.6 mg

11/9/11: 3.2 mg

12/7/11: 2.6 mg

Here's the latest https://bipolarblast.wordpress.com/2011/05/29/housekeeping-2/

 

Housekeeping…

May 29, 2011

by giannakali

 

I took the blog down for a week. The fact is I’m ambivalent about its presence on the internet at this point and actually have been for a long time.

 

I didn’t know how I would feel upon removing it and so I did it as a bit of an experiment. Many of you let me know how you felt about it. And it seems I feel better with it up than down given you’ve voiced your opinions.

 

My own healing process is moving inwards at the moment so I will remain unavailable for correspondence but most of the contents of the blog are back for those who find it helpful.

 

On another note some housekeeping:

 

A year ago in June I purchased an option from wordpress to make this blog ad free. It’s expiring in a few days, so I’m going to ask for some funds to renew it so that you might not have to look at pharmaceutical ads.

 

I do think this blog should remain free of pharma ads.

 

If you’d like to help achieve that you can donate by clicking on the pay-pal donate button below. The fee is $29.97 so it won’t take much.

 

Thank you.
