What it’s been like going off my antidepressants

Heather Laura Clarke

I went off my antidepressants, and now I’m working on myself. It’s uncomfortable as hell. It’s the most difficult DIY project of my life.

The Dutch concept of “niksen” is EXACTLY what I need in my life

I am a person who is regularly told to relax, and can’t. I am ONE HUNDO PER CENT the person who would benefit from niksen.

It’s going down

There is no “before and after.” Antidepressants are not a life sentence, nor are they a miracle cure. I’m the one who’s been here all along, medicated and otherwise.
