Well...I am here visiting all my Husbands family and everyone is very sick.  I have pink eye in both eyes, acute brochitis, sinus infection and a bug...YUCK...I also decided to try and wean off a bit from my Lithium dose (then remove it from my cocktail) to see if I notice any positive changes.  I HATE Lithium and the horrible side efffects with a passion.  I of course am not telling any of my family I am messinbg with my cocktail...they would freak and be a bit pissed at me.  I know this illness doesn not only affect me, I do respect that, but ULTIMATELY it's my illness, my body and my decisions...(I hope I am right). Somehow I think I am in a vicious circle where all my meds are concerned...I just want MY life back...I desperately want to find myself once again...if ever...I have been lost for a very very very long time! x
