Down to Zero

Today is the final day of my withdrawal from Effexor: dropping down to 0mg.  I’m about an hour past the time I always take my dose, and I’m kind of nervous.

Am I going to have worse withdrawal effects than usual, simply because I’m coming completely off the drug now?  Will I finish this long withdrawal process only to find out that I need to continue to be on medication?

I’m not even excited, like I thought I would be, because I don’t want to be disappointed if it goes poorly.  If PPD still has a hold over me…I don’t know what to even say other than I’ll be disappointed.

Time to wait and see…
