Katie: you poor thing. So sorry you're going through that. The vertigo and nausea are the worst. Look forward to your pictures. xx's from Hotlanta.


yucko... hang in there Katie, it will be worth it in the end. xo


Hang in there! I am sure that once you're past the withdrawals, you're going to feel so clear, clean and strong! I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures:>

Hi Katy,
Hope you are having a better day today. Wish I could be there for you. Anxious to see your class photos.


Katie, Thank you for a fabulous, wonderful group of classes at AU. You are such a sweet and loving soul. My heart is with you as you go through this difficult time. big hugs, fran


I'm sorry for what you're going through. Sending you good thoughts, and a big (((HUG))!


Welcome back! Can't wait to hear more about your classes, and I sure hope you're feeling better soon. Take care of yourself!

Effexor is an evil, evil drug. Are you getting the little zapping pinging feelings? GOD I hated coming off of that. But it does end. I hope it ends for you soon! Really looking forward to seeing your class pics!


Dear Katie~
So sorry to hear about the continued effects of that medicine for you. Keep moving forward :-)

But look at all of your excitement about your time away...can't wait to hear and see!

Much love... Kateri


ps... Have you read Kenyon's poem about having it out with melancholy?

I am always in awe of it when I read it again and again, and also in a place of empathy. I know you love Jane, too. I just finished a book of her essays and interviews... A Hundred White Daffodils... you would love them...

Hi Katie! I so enjoyed seeing you again! Thank you too for introducing me to Judy Wise. You know the most delightful people! Why am I not surprised??!

Katie, it was so wonderful to meet you on Vendors day, wish we had more time to chat.
I just LOVE my piece, I hung it up as soon as I got home! Thanks so much for asking me to trade, I'm so glad that you did. I love your work & I look forward to seeing more of it on etsy.
I'm still recovering but I'm almost there. I hope you feel better soon, it sounds like a nasty withdrawl.

Careful with effexor! I believe it was a contributor to my nervous breakdown and subsequent hospitalization in 2000.
Thanks for letting me help you on Sayurday at Art Unraveled. I just ADORE you!


Hi, Sweetie. Hang in there. Looks like there are a lot of "effexor" experiences out there - at least you are not alone.
It was simply lovely being with you at AU. Plus, I so enjoyed the company of you & Miss Judy (what a doll). Hugs to you, my friend.



Is there a chance you'll be teaching at the Art and Soul at Asilomar next year? I would so love to take a class from you...

Katy, I hope you are doing better and continuing to adjust well as you taper off your medication. I'm sending positive thoughts your way...Have a lovely weekend!

Catherine Witherell
