What is like to have severe psych drug withdrawal syndrome? (or other chronic illness)

original link to article http://wp.me/p5nnb-a62

 

I’m sharing a link to a booklet that describes what CFS/ME is like to live with, because it is also what psychiatric drug withdrawal syndrome is like for many people…EXACTLY. My life is still like this…still very very restrictive…but it’s far better than it was…because I can get out of bed now and make it out of the house on occasion…I’ve compared ME and CFS to psych drug withdrawal many times…not that it helps most people understand the severity, but it does help some…

 

I hardly bother trying to explain to people anymore because they either get it or they don’t. If they get it’s not really necessary to explain much. If they don’t get it explaining what they refuse to get is a waste of valuable energy.

 

Following is the link to the booklet…please view it if you care to understand how sick those of us with protracted psych drug withdrawal syndrome are: Are you aware of what it’s like to be this sick?
