I woke up the other morning feeling ready for a change.
I've been wondering for a while whether I would be ok if I discontinued my antidepressants. Part of me is really scared that I might not cope. Another part of me knows that there are significant benefits to not being on them.
I came to the point where I knew I had to try, so I asked my doctor and he was fine with it. There shouldn't be many if any side effects from stopping, providing I do it gradually.
The only thing is that I may go back to how I was before. I'm willing to risk that because I know I'm in a better place than before. I definitely know myself a hell of a lot better and I have learned a lot about relationships over the past 15 months since I started taking it.
I think I have the tools to cope with things as they pop up in life and I know if everything gets on top of me again I can ask for help.
So wish me luck as I take my first baby steps :-)
