So when I got this hell 16 years ago I suffered and didn't take any medications. I had to leave my job because the lights made me think I was in a dream. So intense! Anyways, eventually I went and got my job back and at first it was PURE HELL but little by little the brain gets use to all the sensory overload and those symptoms fade. Now I have this hell again and it knocked me down for 2 weeks and then I started forcing myself again and now I can function well. So my advice to you is that no matter how horrific you think you are going to feel you should force yourself and don't let the brain get the best of you! Don't let this demon take away everything you worked hard for. Keep pushing.
Thank you so much! I will keep this in mind when things become too much!
