I couldn’t take this Lithium again. It made me feel like on was on speed or high dose of caffeine. My hair on my arms stood up, I was thirsty, nervous, anxious, dirreaha, confusion, anger and could there be more. I couldn’t take it any more. I’d rather be manic! At least I would be happy!
Today, I went to my doctor and told her about the hard 2-3 weeks on this med. I asked her if I could get a refund on the medication – it was expensive. She just looked at me. She said, “Let’s try just adding 150 mg to the regular Lithium you have been taking – 600mg a day to 750 mg a day. Hum… It seems that my Lithium level is not quite up to what it should be. She feels that if it was things could be a lot better for me.
Lately, I’ve been having trouble with adding or deciding how much change to give. I don’t know if it’s my ADD or the medication. Can ADD gets worse with age?
It seems that the only I can do right is take pictures and to write in my blog. My grammar may not be perfect, but I’m trying. My best friend is my landlord. No boyfriends – they can’t handle being around me. I can’t keep relationships. I’m in my own little world most of the time. But, I do come out to be a grandma to my kids. And try to be a good mom to my son. He’s the world to me. My only child. My biggest fear is losing him.
Tomorrow, I start my new milligrams of Lithium – so we’ll see how this goes. We check back.
