Many people express concern that their life has been ruined by ADWD. My feeling is, only if you let it and explain it this way: Many years ago when I was in film school I took a course in writing and directing motion pictures. One of the main points that was made during the course was "there is the film you imagine in your mind, the film you write and the film that actually gets produced". Over the course of my life I have learned that this is more than true for the "life you actually live". For people making it through ADWD, we are being given a very valuable second chance at life. We have had our lives cruelly ripped apart down to the very foundations, but now we get to rebuild them with a much greater knowledge of just what is important and what isn't. We also have developed an inner strength that is amazing. After ADWD nothing will be this hard ever again. So please don't convince yourself that your life is ruined. It is changed, yes, and not what you planned, but the possibilities, oh the possibilities, and we just have to take control and make them happen. Thank you for this post Brass you keep me going can I ask a question please i have been offered steroid injections to some damage I have in my elbow and hip called Bursitis. Is a steroid injection ok to have while going through wd. Im holding on Paxil 8:4 mg from February from a too fast taper . Obviously don’t want steroid if it’s going to make my symptoms worse. one other question can anxiety and depression go up and down in severity during wd even though I’m holding and haven’t made any changes as it has worsened over a few weeks from being low level for no apparent reason ? thank you for continuing to support us .
