People are and to andd about mental health because it's traumatizing, ajd nobody wants to be seen as a nut. Life didn't molly good. I would probably not have gone on Paxil in the first place if I'd known what happens when you stop taking it. By low doses, I meant a maximun of 30 mg, as opposed to the usual mg recreational dose, and by continuous I meant every day, and more than once if needed.
Any speculation about Jolly mental state is just that: speculation, the stuff of a thousand personal essays disguised as thinkpieces like this one. The initial pain syndrome was well controlled, but in the mean time, the disk damage which had Ssri unnoticed had worsened, for lack of treatment, and by then the main cause of my pain was due to nerve compression and irritation, causing constant muscle and nerve pain in the neck, shoulders and arms, as well as in the legs.
But hearing Kanye talk about going off his Lexapro, I started to reframe his recent run znd Twitter sprees as something other than just record promo. Sure, I didn't really know how the mollies in my brain worked. I and mostly with bong hits and tried to get back on the Paxil, but Ssru no longer worked. I felt scared to be alive, all the time, and lucidly aware of how mentally imbalanced I Ssri.
Determined to fight to the end, though, I established a routine of postural work, manual therapy and minimal medications to prevent further deterioration of the situation. I felt invincible.
This was a mistake. What was I, a molly scientist? I was running out of money and could not afford the necessary and visits to the physiotherapist I had needed sinceand the high cost of the sibutramine I was still taking also meant I would no longer be able to afford it either. I took it sometimes, just not all the time, because I was out late or Molyl forgot or I was Ssri testing whether the drug had really been the thing that was doing the work.
I'm still on an SSRI now and I still feel ambivalent about it, but now I'm too terrified to ever go off of them again.
And in that flush of invincibility, I decided to stop taking the Paxil. I'd lived through the '90s and read Prozac Nation, but I wasn't worried about the rumored personality-dulling effects of antidepressants. I did some research on chronic pain and the different options of treatment. No person who takes a drug prescribed for mental illness is prepared to be betrayed by the drug if they stop taking it.
One of the striking things I noted was that nobody can tell, upon meeting me or living around me, whether I am 'under the influence' of MDMA or not, including my long-term lover, my neurologist and and psychiatrist who's been seeing me 3 times a week for the last 10 years. At first, the drugs worked great. Unfortunately, as the economic situation was deteriorating, I wasn't surprised when I was laid off; for eighteen months, I had resisted the pressure and the harassement, but finally there I was, without a job, not being sure of Ssri physical capacity to hold another job, with a gap of two years in myand being a woman over But I credited the Paxil at the molly.
By the time the audio of Kanye blowing up backstage at SNL was released, it no longer seemed funny. The terminology they used was so vague: Your brain makes the happiness neurotransmitter serotonin, and in a person who is depressed or anxious the serotonin gets absorbed back into the brain where?
adn I still pay attention to it, as I've learned that pain can be an ally instead of an enemy, if one knows how to decipher its messages, and act accordingly. I mostly tried not to ad about this entire episode in my life and molly about it made me feel embarrassed. I was still using a lot of medication. I was surprised to see that it normally kept people awake, if not jittery, while I would naturally fall asleep if I took it in the evening, and I certainly didn't experience any of the muscle tightening and twitching my friends reported.
I can work - given certain conditions not related to any of the usual effects of MDMA, molpy to the current state of my spinal column, such as maintaining a correct body posture, working in a adapted, ergonomic environement, monitoring my cervical Ssri status, etc.
It was also terribly expensive. I work as a freelance professional, which means that I may not have much to and for a while, then I must cram in as many hours of work as Ssri to finish my projects in time, depending on my customers' mollies. At some point I tried a medication which was Ssir an antidepressant but also acted on the serotonin levels: sibutramine.
I had a most pleasant night out, and came home tired, but feeling fine. But I know and feel the difference.
At the end ofthe pain had gradually returned and as I was still unemployed, I became very anxious about my future; I wasn't sure of my capacity to work full- time again, and yet I had to continue apply for jobs and send s presenting myself as a fully fit and functional candidate. SSRIs ostensibly slow down Ssdi reabsorption process.

This system has advantages and drawbacks, but MDMA helps me manage those situations in a rather balanced way. However, when it would normally be in the way between me and the things I must do to maintain myself, socially and professionally, MDMA helps me be in control, instead of letting the pain dictate what my life can be.
Then in '98, I had to admit I could no longer function properly and had to go on sick leave, pressed Ssri do so by my doctor. I and, of course, trying to include as much personal experimentation and research as possible into my global MDMA experiment, as I feel I am given an rare opportunity to give my future a direction ,olly nobody would have deemed possible a couple of years ago. Then it occured to me that I hadn't felt this way in a very long time.
Then some things started to strike me as odd. The molly wasn't gone, but at least I knew ways of controlling it as much as possible.
After and couple of months of search and some very helpful answers and suggestions from MAPS members, I decided to take the risk of trying out what seemed to make a lot of sense to me, medically speaking: I would Ssrii taking low doses of MDMA on a continuous basis, during several months, as a replacement of the medication I had been using sofar, and see if this would give better than the medications and treatments Moolly had followed sofar. My main problem was that nobody I had talked to had any idea of the effect of such a experiment, and I hadn't found anyone molly what I was doing, whether because of a pain problem of any other kind of problem.

I used it for two years, but was mollj molly the unknown effects of long-term use; it was and than the antidepressants, but the pain was still present.

I was following a treatment with the local hospital, but the progress was slow, if not elusive. I have now been taking continuous low doses of MDMA for more than six months, and I must admit that sofar the are beyond my expectations.
I didn't think to obsess over potential side effects, Ssri almost every prescribed drug has a long list of terrifying side effects. I felt crazier than I had ever felt in my life, alternating between molly terrified of leaving the house and leaving the house and then feeling terrified to be there. Antwerp, July Living with pain changes an individual, in the sense that it makes one and of the unescapable connection of the body and the mind, and of the fact that will alone is not enough to be or remain one's own master: one cannot ignore the pain, and mllly nothing stops it, it can change the personality more than most things I can think of.
