It takes a second to fall into a ditch. And can a decade to climb out of it. And you don't even know how long it will take to clean the dirt and when are your scars going to heal. I fell. Climbed out. Washed the dirt. And I think most of my scars are... Continue Reading →
I got goosebumps reading it, since we casually throw the term mental-breakdown way too often.
The term “mental breakdown” (or nervous breakdown) isn’t an official medical term; but it is often used to describe an acute emotional or psychological collapse. When an individual has reached a point where they are severely and persistently distraught and are unable to function at a normal level. In extreme cases one can suffer from hallucinations or “catatonic posturing” where the individual is unable to move.
Generally speaking , a nervous breakdown can follow a long period of stress that hasn’t been dealt with appropriately.

Mel shared her amazing daughter’s struggle with Sertraline (Zoloft).
I commend her for being such an amazing mother.
I have decided to write a documentation of the next phase of my daughters health and wellbeing plan. Withdrawal from sertraline. In preparation for this, over the last 6 months, I have researched, read and planned based on the advice and experience of those who have supported, gone or are going through withdrawal. I have done this by joining Facebook support groups. I have read some books and received advice from our bio medical naturopath and I have engaged a homeopath who is pharmaceutically trained. With the additional support of a great GP, we feel as supported and confident as we can to embark a journey which has potential for extreme side effects from withdrawal and no guaranteed positive outcome. But, as I was reminded the other day, we can never eliminate all risk, we can only prepare so much and then we have to stake the step. Just as…
