My mother now gives me her blessing to try lithium. It’s a reluctant blessing, but I’ll take what I can get. She’s trying to scare me out of it by saying that my grandfather who took it felt like he was going to pass out and that he had tremors. I’ve also heard that it causes thyroid issues. At this point, I’ve been poked and prodded for one year and 2 months for the right meds. I want to be normal. If I have to take lithium and ability for the rest of my life, then so be it. If I develop thyroid issues and tremble, so be it. I just want to be normal and happy. That’s all.
I’m just tired of this. I’m so tired of fighting my mind.
