Yeah, I cold turkeyed off of Celexa when I was about 24 (Jesus, 9 years ago now) and would find myself like, crying every time the Beck album Sea Change came on my iPod (Jesus, there have been iPods for at least 9 years). That was one of the less frightening manifestations of withdrawal. I spent several days locked in a dark hotel room watching HBO, and am probably only alive today because to kill myself would have involved leaving the room to get something to do it with.
I will second that this was a very well written article. I don't want to turn this into an argument about psychological drugs, but I've heard the "I was feeling better so I stopped taking my medication" fallacy before, and it's heartbreaking because you know how the story is going to end.
If you are ever diagnosed with anything more than a mild depression, you probably need to be on an antidepressant for the rest of your life. If you do feel that you want to stop taking them, you need to do with careful observation/followup with an mental health professional.
