I'm an idiot.
I'll go ahead and say that now. For someone that's usually passably intelligent, I can do some pretty dumb things sometimes.
So lately I've been extremely light-headed; loopy as all hell, right? It makes it hard to concentrate and sometimes a big "whoosh" of dizziness almost knocks me off my feet. I'm thinking, "Holy shit, I have brain cancer or something." Then I remember; no, dumbass, you just up and stopped taking your Zoloft cold turkey.
"When one stops Zoloft too rapidly a withdrawal syndrome may develop. Among the symptoms that may be experienced are nausea, tremors, lightheadedness, muscle pains, weakness, insomnia, and anxiety." (about.com - Zoloft Withdrawal, MAOIs vs. SSRIs)
And I knew it was wrong to stop taking anti-depressants cold turkey. I knew it could fuck me up and cause all kinds of weird withdrawal symptoms. But I did it anyway.
Real smart, eh?
