Here we go again- if any of you have read or commented on my posts around Nov 28th you will know what I am talking about. I really can not take this anymore. Ever since my husband started taking Effexor, he is a totally different man. He is emotionless, wants to be left alone, however, puts on a good act when he goes out, wants a divorce, wants the marriage to work but will do absolutely nothing to make it work. Says he is \"unable\"- I guess that means he is unable to call, communicate, ask \"how are you?\"- He says \"hi\" We have been married 24 years and he has been on this effexor for anxiety for 5 years. He has put on weight, has memory issues, can\'t make up his mind if he wants the marriage, one minute yes, the next no. For the last 2 years it has been emotional hell. If he is depressed, I have stayed with him but I can\'t any longer. He wants to be left alone. The doctors say that any anti anxiety medication will have the same effect( which I do not believe). He loves the medication and wants it more than the marriage.He says he is happy the way it is and we could be married this way. I am ready to jump out of my skin. Any comments?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
