I have always felt that I was on too much medication, come on, you saw the script. . .
Recently my psychiatrist and I have decided it best that I cut down my lithium intake. We came down 300mg, leaving me at 900mg.
I started to feel like I had more energy. Not hypomanic, just not droned out, you know? In terms of side effects, my shakes have gotten less intense, I haven't been dry gagging as much. I feel genuinely better for it.
So I was a cheeky wee rascal and came down another little bit. So far so good. I happen to meet with Mr Psych in a few weeks, so we will be able to tell by then if its a good or bad result.
I just came back from an amazing trip with my family in Florida. I really needed the break, work(s) had gotten too stressful and I could feel my mood slipping. . . Ugh. But a wee bit of R&R, family love and Disney magic sorted that right out. I'll pop some photos up soon!
I hope you are doing well. I do aim to write some more soon, I promise.
