Xanax

Xanax

I felt Nothing with this medicine, once 'up to reg. levels' after being prescribed and taking it for over 5 weeks, I felt as though I could not Cry nor could I Laugh and be happy.
I was in a permanent state of "numb" and felt as though just sitting, and not doing or saying anything was about all I could accomplish.
I weaned myself off by lowering the dosage over two-months and then I was done, told the Doc. and we have not re-addressed the issue (my fault, I know) :(

Has Anyone Ever Felt Some Emotional Numbness Possibly As A Result Of Meds Dosage Increase?

Has Anyone Ever Felt Some Emotional Numbness Possibly As A Result Of Meds Dosage Increase?

A couple of days ago I was incredibly down: so self-critical and believing all of the lies my head was telling me about myself and moving way too fast inside this bipolar brain of mine. So I made the choice to increase my Abilify dosage from 5 mg to 6 mg. As had happened when I did it before, I felt better the very next day, my mood improved and I am feeling calmer inside. But I also seem to be feeling somewhat numb which… read more

Does Anyone Ever Get "numb Days"?

Does Anyone Ever Get "numb Days"?

Does anyone ever get days when you can't distinguish how you feel? Like you're numb? And like your head is all 'fuzzy'? Like when you've just been woken up from a deep sleep suddenly but it goes on for days.... I don't take drugs or anything. Is that normal?

Are You Bothered By Posers?

Are You Bothered By Posers?

Seems to me having major depression has become quite fashionable. It's as if every other person who has ever felt sulky or sad purports to be suffering from depression. We know that the condition is waaaaayyyyy over diagnosed in some parts of the world, especially in the US. And even without a formal diagnosis, a hell of a lot of people claim to be struggling with it. Most have absolutely no fucking idea what it's really like.

I don't mean to suggest that others don't have problems,… read more
