I've had a few really awful days of feeling very off kilter.  I'm dizzy, visual perception is off, feeling very spacy and floaty like I'm not "all there".  Everything seems a bit "removed" and unclear and I'm having a terrible time functioning.  I'm not seeing any improvement at all.  Every day I wake up hoping that it might be at least a little better than the day before but it never is.  I'm starting to fall into despair that I will never get better and will always be this way...forever.  Is this my life now?

Yes, it is your life for now, but it not forever. I promise. :smitten: There will be a time when this all behind you. There really will, but it can be a miserable process to get there, especially during the early months. I, too , did a CT so I am very familiar with your symptoms, and know how surreal the world can be, like a bad acid trip.  Unfortunately they are all normal symptoms for someone who stopped suddenly.  Symptoms can be severe. Your symptoms are all classic. I had all of them. For me, I starting to see light at the end of the tunnel between my fourth and fifth month. I see many members here who begin to see marked improvment around that time as well. My best piece of advice is to learn how to distract. I had to learn to do it, and it was in those moments of distraction that the world would become a bit less surreal. You are going to get through this.

Thank you !  I can't tell you how much your  encouragement means to me !  I'm going to read and re-read your reply whenever I am feeling hopeless and desperate!  This is just what I needed to keep me going!
