At this point things are going really well. I am off all antidepressants for the first time in 37 years. It is a source of satisfaction for me to know what I can overcome. I am going back to school! At age 65 you can go to University of Louisville free, and I am going to take advantage of that. I have been sticking to a healthy routine of diet, doing my work as an artist, staying hydrated-in short, taking care of myself. I know at one point antidepressants were a life saver for me. It is rewarding to know I have progressed. I wanted to share my joy and encouragement.
Thanks for sharing. Hope I can one day say the same, but for now the medication is a critical part of my life. I have reached a level of stability (over 10 yrs) with no episodes of severe depression or anxiety attacks. And hence, have begun a very slow process of reducing my medication with my doctor's complete approval. Nice to hear of other's successes in recovering from mental illness.
