  1. If you are able to walk, count your blessings. Regardless of if you are too depressed to walk or don't want to walk, please count your blessings if you're physically CAPABLE of walking. My movement disorder is so bad that if I walk more than a few steps, my legs buckle and my whole body starts to wiggle. I can only walk up and down the hallway of my house 3-5 times a day, maximum. Before meds, I used to be a runner, swimmer, bicyclist, dancer, figure skater, and weight lifter. The tricyclic antidepressants and benzo destroyed me so badly that now I can't even walk because I have lost control of my legs and arms. If I leave my house, my family pushes me in a wheelchair so that I don't flop everywhere in public. So if you are physically capable of walking, do it and be grateful, and while you are out walking to help yourself through WD, say a little prayer that one day I will be able to walk again, too. And if I ever am able to again, I will pray and think good things about you when I am walking. I know that it is hard for many people to exercise while in WD, but if you are able to walk, DO IT and count your blessings. It will only help your recovery.
