Wow, now that's some serious stress. Having recently taken a couple of months off, and receiving only temporary disability, I can relate.

I recently closed on a house too (now there's a stressor), and just got internet service back again.

I recently quit Remeron and Effexor too. They were cognitive butt-kickers. Have gone back to a crumb of Paxil in the evening, with chipping away at Lithium during the day. I'm keeping my head above water.

Guess I was lucky, and did not get any horrible Effexor withdrawal, even after 2 months at mostly 150 mgs (a couple of weeks were at 225).

About the returning to work. Still don't know if I can make a go of that. I'm in IT, and we're changing over to a completely new system. I seem far less able to grasp new info than I used to.

I'm giving it a shot, but it's an iffy proposition.

If this isn't too personal, is the disability you receive permanent, or temporary? If I can no longer do my job, I may have to go that route myself.

You sound pretty good these days, in spite of your slump.
