Been told today if I continue doing well over the next two years, I can come off lithium and be off meds completely


Woop woop good day :)

I was having thoughts she was going to say I would have to be on for ten years, so two years sounds manageable

Thanks, I just need to make sure I have no blips in these next two years or it will be three more years or so. I am very stable on it so it looks good :)

Hey don't beat yourself up though if you do have a blip. I always think things can be learned from our blips, don't rush yourself.

I'm glad things are stable for you. :)

Sorry to hear you got told it is forever for you, everyone is a different case. It can harm only if the level is too high and becomes toxic, so just make sure you have the regular blood tests
