Blog worth checking out

Holly Finch’s blog “Am I Still Me?” is worth taking a look at. She was a survivor in the London bombing that occurred on July 7, 2005 and as a result, blogs about her daily life while suffering from PTSD.

She recently blogged about coming off citalopram (U.S. trademark name: Celexa) and is experiencing some awful withdrawal effects. This makes me glad that I skipped Celexa in the hospital before I met my doctor. He recommended Effexor instead.

Not that it makes a difference really. I just had the privilege of not having two withdrawal symptoms in succession.

    I will definitely check out her blog. I, too am experiencing PTSD and it’s something I really want to get over with as soon as possible. I wake up in the middle of the night, right from my sound sleep, and the first things that pops into my mind is a flashback of that horrible event in my life….
