About prideinmadness

I'm 25 years old and live in Toronto, Ontario. I refuse to see myself as "sick" and instead focus on how my experience have led me to where I am. I do work and advocacy within mental health, have severe Mad Pride and know that psychiatry needs to change.

  1. im 2 weeks med free now, the withdrawal symptoms thus far have been annoying rather than troublesome

  2. Thanks Prideinmadness, I’d really like to get off of them myself, but every time I try I crash, so we’ll see- maybe if I can get the grief & trauma therapy I really need, & have a supportive enough program & community in place, then I can work with a therapist to taper off of these things. I’m on Cymbalta, & was on Effexor before that . . .

    • I hope it goes well. In the past I just stopped cold turkey but I don’t think I’ll be able to do that this time. Having support during the process is probably really important!
