Do you think your previous MD might call in some Lithium refills, might give you some Abilify samples to tide you over?
If you go up very slowly, you might get beyond the Lithium fatigue, though it might take a couple + mo's.
I heard hospital emergency rooms will give one some meds for "major" psych. dx's when one is without.
I hope you get seen by your County clinic soon. Even if you get lithium for cheap, there are still the labs. One can go through a long application process for other health services, & frequently be turned down. But, I think w/ bipolar dis, one is taken in fairly quickly for psychiatric services (if you meet their income criteria), as it costs them more if one is hospitalized & unable to pay.
Especially with the stress of the job loss, you'll need to take extra good care of yourself.
I'm sorry you're going through this difficult time.
