Weaning off the drugs........

Not sure why I choose this title, but it's just the raw truth.

I have officially decided it's time for me to wean off Zoloft.

I would be lying if I said I hadn't tried it before, and I would defiantly be lying if I said it didn't scare the crap out of me.

The thing is I have been on Zoloft for almost 4 years now, and I am just ready to stop, and I know it's time.

I had really bad PPD with Carson and knew I needed help. Zoloft did just that. It helped, but along with helping it had negatives. But it also had positives.

Right now at the place I am in, the negatives are outweighing the positives.

This drug really just levels it all out for me. I don't get all wound up and freak out over every little thing that may not go perfect. But with leveling me out, it also makes me almost numb to situations I wish I could freak out about. Hopes that made sense. 

Bottom line is I am ready to wean. Did I mention I am scared? I have read some pretty scary stuff that happens when weaning.

Have any of you ladies ever taken Zoloft? If so did you have a hard time when you stopped?
