Hi all, I know I've not been here recently. I've been busy and just don't come to DS all that often. I'm making an effort as I do have some wonderful friends here. I just wanted to let everyone know that I've made tremendous progress. I am now off my anti-depressant and my anti-anxiety meds! It was hard work and I did go through some withdrawal symptoms. But, I made the choice to get off them and I've done it! I do still have my moments, especially if there is a lot of noise. But, I'm doing much better with the coping. I thought I'd be on the meds for the rest of my life. I just wanted to come here and share my news. I know that many of you are still struggling with many issues. Just know that you can beat this too! It takes hard work and belief in yourself. I will try to check out the boards from time to time, I'm not leaving the group.
