Update on my A/D tapering before I start an MAOI

Well, I started tapering off my AD's last Saturday, so it's been about 5 days. I'm feeling flu-like symptoms (achy, all-over shitty feeling), dizziness, nausea, blurry vision, major fatigue, and weepiness. These are almost the same symptoms that were mentioned in the New York Times article that someone just posted! The article is about what happens when people stop taking antidepressants.
I have not gone to work yesterday or today. Yesterday it was because I had something I had to go do, but I was having these symptoms too. Today I didn't go to work because of the symptoms. I have to go tomorrow though, I can't miss three days in a row! The good thing about my miserable government job is that you can do things like this and not get fired.
Anyway, I'm scared because starting Saturday, I will be totally off antidepressants. I have to be off of them for two straight weeks before even starting the Parnate. My doctor gave me a benzo that has mood-lifting properties, which I'm about to go take right now, then go curl up and sleep next to my cat.
