It's really working. And so are the lovely side effects.
I got off other bipolar meds 2 years ago, cause health stuff. I wanted lithium because I had never really had side effects with it. But I'm way older now, and my body is having a rebellion.
but I keep telling myself, this is temporary until your body gets used to it. It's funny because it's only been 2 months. I have this " hurry up and get used to it" attitude. It feel like I've been on it for at least a year emotion wise.
So yeah, hurry up lithium and hit that patience center of my brain already :)
So I can donate these crisis elastic pants to the thrift store! lol
it's funny i can laugh at it, and not freak out. any other time, if i gained half a pound i would have freaked out and gone on a fast. but this time, I'm like " it's not too bad, it's a temporary side effect, just like before..it will balance out and go away" lithium just makes you not really care. I guess it's a good thing if applied to other areas.
I just have to be patient( seriously..not overeating at all! I use an app off and on to make sure, but I had to stop cause I kept lying that I ate more so it would register. and got kind of obssessed with daily tally)
And slowly start walking, cause that's another side effect. my levels are good, I drink water but I feel like spacey and sometimes a bit unsteady...just physically weird. So nice slow walking :)
