rollingregret Posted September 11, 2012 Report Share Posted September 11, 2012 Simply put -- We all know how devastating wd can be to the body and mind. It's debilitating even if you have all the time in the world and no external stressors. How do you guys deal with work when experiencing whatever symptoms you might have? Before my taper gone wrong and subsequent protracted symptoms, I was on 3.5 to 4mg of Klon a day and it saved my life and academic career (went from being suicidal to getting a science doctorate). Now, I am so lost when it comes to not only planning a career, but a life, family, etc. If I have to do the long taper (assuming I stabilize), I have years ahead of me of awful symptoms and I cannot see myself being productive, let alone excelling. These are the years when I need to be most productive, sharp and energetic. Yes, works helps distract, but only if the symptoms are at a certain level (e.g,. where you aren't dizzy all the time).
