I was on SSRI's for years, and am now off them. However, I have totally changed, From gregarious to reclusive, creative and clear-thinking to just a shell, with poor recall. A feeling of 'nothingness', unmotivated. I have cut myself off from friends and most of my family. I prefer to stay at home alone, and only venture out once a week to shop. My relationship with my partner has turned into co-existence.
I thought I was just eccentric, and was retired early due to unbearable stress at work which incurred a mental collapse. I was so glad to be at home, do nothing but the basics, and 'switch off'. I was an award-winning designer and since then have given it up. Can't think straight.
Imagine my shock when I read the latest article by Jim Stone entitled:
"Prescribed Deletion..." http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/
Please be warned about this dreadful scenario.
Truly, I feel like I have been lobotomised.
