There is light at the end of the tunnel

Light at the end of the tunnel

It turns out there is light at the end of the tunnel. For a while there I thought there was no hope. I must admit, since I came off my anti-depressants it has been a struggle and yet from what I read, I’ve had it easy compared to others in the same boat.

Why my Drs thought it was a good idea to put the 17-year-old me on anti-depressants I’ll never know. They say anti-depressants aren’t addictive, but they blatantly are. I just hope that someone else can learn from my experience.

In the last two weeks, I’ve started to feel that I’ve got my mojo back. For a while I lost my passion for everything. I felt lacklustre and apathetic. This week is the first time I didn’t cry until Sunday and when I did it was just a sniffle really compared to the deep unhappiness I felt in previous weeks.

The main things that have helped me are Tapping, Homeopathy, Mindfulness (particularly advice from Dandapani and the Headspace App), Affirmations, Meditation, my Buddhist practice and of course the support from friends and family, particularly my amazing and long-suffering boyfriend Mr Sexy Pants. I have written about some of these techniques mentioned in previous blog posts and I’ll be writing more in later posts.

Fingers crossed, I’ve turned the corner now and I will continue going from strength to strength. I hope that I will inspire someone else who is having similar difficulties.

  1. This is so good! Thank you for sharing your story. I’ve just started blogging about my experience coming off antidepressants. I too was put on them at a young age. I feel fortunate to have finally gotten off of them. It’s not an easy journey but more and more of us are find the way out. I look forward to reading more of your posts!
