Thank you all for your lovely comments about Smudge. My precious pet, so loving. He was abandoned previously, and I gave him a name and a home. I live in England so perhaps catnip is easier to grow over here as climate wet and mild. Mind you we have had a very dry summer this year but the catnip has positively flourished. Smudge loves diving into it,...

Hello there. Is a lot of posts about this subject. It took me 10 months to withdraw from Effexor so I did not get any withdrawals. You must do it really, really slowly, over months not weeks. Withdrawals can be really nasty otherwise. I think you are decreasing much too quickly. Slow down, and I am sure you won't feel so bad. It is worth taking yo...

Please don't say you are disappointed in yourself. You have nothing to reproach yourself for. I am sorry you are feeling so depressed at the moment. I know from personal experience how difficult it is to deal with. Keep posting here, and you will find support. I myself am in a "downer" at the moment, and am disappointed because I stopped...

I get exactly the same symptoms you get with my heart, but have always accepted it is due to my anxiety and nothing more. I think if the monitor shows your heart is normal, then you have nothing to worry about. Anxiety can cause all sorts of weird physical symptoms. That irregular heart beat is one of mine. Try to accept what the doctor has told you, as...

I am so very sorry about the loss of your dad. Why are you worrying about Ebola. Are you an at risk area? Surely you do not need that worry too. I have been on Zoloft in the past. Perhaps it is just tasking time to make you feel better this time. you know we usually feel worse when we start taking a tablet, and it takes a few weeks for us to feel th...

I have had migraines for over 50 years and a lot of the things you describe I get with migraines. Also headaches can give you these symptoms. Could you be experiencing migraines, headaches or side effects from medication? If the doctor does not thin it necessary for you to have an MRI scan, then he probably thinks your symptoms are not uncommon. I also ...

I know my cat absolutely adores catnip so I make him something to play with. I grow catnip in my garden, and Smudge loves to snuggle into it and rub his face against it and even chew it. When it has flowered, I cut off the flowers, then dry them indoors. That is in about august. Today I have made a little pouch with some material and put the dried cat...

From what you say you have been on anti depressants in the past. You say they gave you a zombie feeling. I think that is because you were not on one that suited you. I was on an anti depressant for years, in fact I have been on many, but I have not felt like a zombie. Perhaps your doctor could prescribe a different one, that suits you better.

Hello, have you spoken to a doctor about how you are feeling. Depression needs to be diagnosed, and perhaps that is what you have. What you describe does sound like depression, but I urge you to discuss with a doctor. We can support you, but not diagnose. However, having said that, many people here feel as you do.
