Abilify WIthdrawl(withdrawal) - how long will the symptoms last?

I've been trying to stop taking Abilify several times now.  I've been off and on a 5mg dose for about 1 1/2 years.  I recently cut it in half and took 2.5 mg for a week, then cut that in half and took 1.25 for a week then I stopped.  I guess I could have tried to cut the 1.25 in half but the speck of pill was so small I thought how could this even be effecting my anymore?  Well I was wrong.  The very day after I stopped I have had many physical and mental symptoms:  slow thinking, starrring, a "don't care" attitude, no motivation, nausea, chills, headache, and irritibility are the main ones.  My question is how long will these symptoms last and will my brain go back to functioning normally?   Has anyone else experienced these symptoms and felt better over time??  I could do this if I knew there was and end in sight.
