"I was f---ing crazy," Duritz tells on his Facebook page. "I needed meds. I took meds. Now I'm less crazy. I need less meds. I'm stopping meds."
The 'Long December' singer told Men's Health magazine back in 2008 that he has "a form of dissociative disorder that makes the world seem like it's not real, as if things aren't taking place. It's hard to explain, but you feel untethered."
Duritz recently tweeted that he has cut his lithium dosage by half but the withdrawal is wearing on his psyche and he is reportedly doing "not so good."
"Going faster than I should," the singer continues. "Still takes too long. Everyone says how clear & present I am. 'Clear & present'. Horror. Not mutually exclusive."
Just yesterday Duritz tweeted again about his current condition while recording new material, saying "I stopped dropping the meds dosages for recording. Couldn't shake uncontrollably & sing at the same time. Forgivable. But...I got home." No word on whether or not the singer will continue treatment.
