    Well, I've stopped taking my anti-depressant, Zoloft. When on it, I sometimes feel good enough to want to live, so I can't kill myself while taking it. It doesn't make me feel good all the time, or even enough of the time to make me want to stay on this fucking world... Just enough to keep me alive.

    So I've stopped taking it. I replaced it with alcohol. I hope I get the nerve up to off myself soon.

    whats made you take such drastic action?
    stopping your meds cold isnt the way, you said that they work enough so why not carry on fighting with there help.

    why not ask for something different from your doctor?

    suicide isnt the answer here, you only have one life so i hope you will think again and keep on trying, dont give up. :hug:

    Everything's been a fucking disaster since Sunday. I've probably got 2 dozen threads started on the topic... I'm starting to take them again. Sarah's a persuasive friend.

    glad that Sarah came over and changed your mind.
    i know alcohol is nice ( exception is rum ) but it will only make things worse for you and with the seizures then its a no no.

    i know how things can become too much at times and we all make rash decisions in our despair but your not alone in this.

    please be strong

    What? Rum is freakin' awesome, even when I'm not suicidal.

    Glad Sarah convinced you to go back on your meds. I know its not the answer but the meds help, got to be patient till the illness comes under control. Try not to mix alcool and Zoloft,, its a real bad mixture :(

    I need to sleep. Alcohol puts me to sleep... Some days I just can't take consciousness.

    hun if you have problems with sleep, it would be best to ask for something to your GP than falling into alcool. mixing alcool and medication can be deadly.
    be careful and go for laroxyl or somethig similar for sleep problems.

    Taking Remeron on that front. Still need alcohol some nights... [Remeron interacts with alcohol as well.] Alcohol was likely a factor in my seizure the other night, as well.

    The love of my life is dating another guy, and "deadly" mixtures of drugs don't exactly scare me at this point.
