I went to the research clinic yesterday like I do every Friday. But this time it was different. I was told they were pulling me from the study. Be honest, I was relieved. I had felt good on it and I had some close calls of hurting myself. I felt drunk on it most of the time by tripping over items, running into tables just flat feeling drunk. I got sick sometimes by getting acid reflux and throwing up. By 3pm I’d be ready to go sleep. I gained 3 pounds! I did find out I was taking the real thing not the sugar pill. I had a feeling since I was having such a rough time. It did work as far as changing my drinking habits. I’ve slowed down a lot so that was good. The bad thing is they did a blood draw and my liver count went from 77 to over 100. That wasn’t good. The research decided to remove me from the study.
Darn just when I found something that would control my drinking habits. Maybe it just wasn’t meant for me to do this.
They did give me a two-week supply of Lithium. I asked them which drug was causing my enzymes to go up they didn’t have an answer, but still they’re giving more lithium. My bipolar has settled a little. I guess I will see what the next chapter in my life will lead. I just know things need to improve.
