Really?

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.

One thought on “Really?

  1. Really hope it works well for you. My last placement was with a lithium clinic, one individual was 97 and still taking it with no significant problems (which means he must still have a really good renal system!).

    If it’s anything like the UK you will be closely monitored to make sure it’s right for you and always have a contact if you feel worried about the way it’s making you feel.
