I think we’re going to have to change the times I take my Lithium up a bit. I see the psych this Friday.
I am currently taking:
Lithium 1200 mg at bedtime
Ambien 10 mg at bedtime
Ativan as needed
Pretty mild considering some of the other concoctions I hear about people being on. So that’s one positive I suppose. But I am tired of being irritable and nasty in the evenings and night. Some people in my support group said my meds are probably wearing off, which makes perfect sense. Either way, I am just going to go in to the office Friday and present my symptoms. I think I do a really good job at keeping Pillars and the kids out of the line of fire. I just rage at everyone else. And it’s horribly exhausting.
I should probably just go take an Ativan right now. I’m sorry I don’t have anything remarkably insightful to say. I’m sure as soon as the fog clears out of my head it’ll all come out.
And before I forget, I would like to list some of the things my sweet husband (of 7 years, this month!) does for me on a regular basis:
– I am not saying this to brag, but there are some people in this community who have called him “vile”, “dangerous”, and, my personal favorite!, “a bipolar” lately and I merely wanted to say that if loving vile is wrong, I don’t want to be right. Haters gonna hate! –
Hot towel massages, complete with calming music and scented lotion
Head/foot/shoulder/back/whatever aches rubs (sometimes 2/3 a day)
Random yummy surprises (candy bars/nachos and cheese/soda/OJ…my favorite things)
Romantic cards with smushy love letters written in them
Lots of house cleaning
Cleans the litter box
Wrestles with the kids every day, and makes it a point to show them how to treat a woman and what a woman should expect
Plus all the “regulars” like making dinner, unexpected trips out of the house (“Go out to eat, read a book, just relax!”)…shit, he’s even shaved my legs before.
I bet you all wish you had someone vile like him. 🙂
