id be anxious taking so much lithium but its supposed to be a really good mood stabilizer.
The unique thing is it protects against both mania and depression, so you cant go wrong with it mood wise.
We need more meds like that.

I have never been manic without ADs and never will, but on meds i have been manic in the past.
Manic in comparison to my standards at least. Maybe because i wasnt used to NOT being depressed.
Then again, it might have been more of psychosis than mania. Pretty sure it was as i still had sad thoughts and the like.
I have been crying after being numb for so long.

Its hard to say where depression begins and ends. But we are not supposed to not enjoy life is my opinion. We should be reasonably happy.

Now though i think the antipsychotic im taking will protect me. (When rapastinel comes out!)
It is complicated.

It would be easier with drugs like lithium. But i wont take the risks associated with it. Neither the weight gain.

If there was no weight gain and no thyroid and kidney issues, id be on it in a heart beat even though im not full blown bipolar.
