There is a chance that you may be feeling a certain way because you are starting a new medicine. What you think about the medicine and what you think about the dr can have a slight-short term effect on how you feel. It is not likely you will feel side effects this soon but I hope that long term the lithium is the right medication for you.

Hello and welcome to the forum. You are trying to separate two things that very well may be linked together. I cannot tell you if you are bipolar or not... especially just meeting you and the very finite amount of information you have given. I can tell you this: From what I have learned you are going to get different feedback from different counselors dep...

I journal almost everyday as well. I always recommend journaling to anyone working on themselves. There is a useful mood tracker on Medhelp as well if you haven't tried it yet.

That should be perfectly fine to split the dose like that as long as you don't keep making changes. I was on 400 mg once and I asked my dr if I could split that to 200 at night and 200 in the morning. He told me it didn't really make a difference as long as I took the whole 400 every day. Good luck.

I am glad that you find your animals help you with your symptoms. I find it to be one of the wonders of the world how if you give love away you get that love back even greater.

Med wash can be difficult and it may move you from not being bad enough to go to the hospital to being critical so be careful. I am not sure what meds you are on but each will have its own symptoms. Under the care of a physician is the only way I could recommend doing it. If you want to talk more about it feel free to keep posting.
