Never rains but it pours. I have dangerously high cholesterol and it appears that Lithium can overload me. so..... stoke? heart attack?
Guess I'll have to wait a few weeks until my doctor comes back from vacation.
I don't WANT to go off meds. I'm terrified that I'll be delusional again and at my age I can't do the cycles anymore. I barely came back from the last depression.

Have you ever tried any other medicines? Perhaps it is time for a med change? It is better than going on nothing at all. x xx x
