Ran out of my anti-depressants last Friday.
The health insurance I was on ended December 31st.
Without insurance a 30 day supply is $128.
I don’t have that kind of money just lying around.
I wanted to quit at some point. This seems like as good a time as any.
They biggest thing I’ve noticed is the dizziness. I think that’s getting better.
Have I felt sad more often? Yes.
I don’t feel sad all the time.
I haven’t thought about killing myself.
I feel more irritable than I did before I started taking them last summer. Hopefully that will pass.
I’m tired of feeling like a robot. Maybe other pharmaceuticals wouldn’t cause that.
I also worry about side effects.
I’ve read several articles stating that anti-depressants can cause BRAIN DAMAGE.
I’ve read other articles which say many times depression is caused by a lack of proper nutrition.
I’m going to keep taking my blood pressure pills for now. I’m sure I won’t need those either once I start eating better and losing weight.
Ultimately, I don’t trust pharmaceuticals.
Or the glorified drug dealers pushing them.
“Side effects may include increased bleeding, loss of libido, inability to think clearly, dementia, and DEATH. In a clinical trial a significant percentage of participants died. Ask your doctor if ***** is right for you.”
