32. I appreciate your insight

Reading other people's experiences helps me. I went to our ER a couple of weeks ago and they were very helpful. I will go back if I need to.

Against medical advice, I have weaned myself off Effexor during the past two weeks. FWIW, I am not sure I wouldn't have been worse off emotionally today on a full dose than on none. My withdrawals haven't been as bad as I have read some people have, I just needed off that stuff and done. It was harming me and making my OCD a lot worse.

The intensity of my depression is lessening greatly now. I talked with a close friend who battles mental illness also for a long time tonight and it helped tremendously.
