About Me: Female, 74, Dorset, United Kingdom, member since Nov 2009
I am a grandma who lives in the beautiful seaside county of Dorset on the south coast of England. I have two children, four grandchildren, and a lovely rescue cat I have called Smudge. With my doctor's help I gradually withdrew from 150mg Effexor XR daily over 10 mon
[More]ths. I finally stopped taking the medication in October 2013. I have had no withdrawal symptoms. I do have mild anxiety when I am alone.
I am 73 years old and have a reasonable social life with a senior citizens group. I do not take any medication at all, and I think I am doing really well for my age. Apart from the usual things that catch up with us as we age, I am really fit.
Hi Maddie. It has been so long. I am so so so busy and so so so tired, but I have to keep busy or go nuts. How are you doing. I hope all is well. I have always enjoyed our talks, its just that I have so much going on that I dont have the time or strenghth to go the forum as much as I was. I have to work as much as I can handle. How is your depression? Have you been going out a lot? I am looking forward to hearing from you soon I hope. Love ya Blue
