water.... i need water....

Still here.

Lithium went from 3000 mg, to 2700 mg. This month it went from 2700 to 1200.

I am fine but sleeping 16 hours a day, and drinking water. i dream of water.....

Cymbalta is still 60 mg.

For some reason I am ravenous.

I have been writing, but the last 3 days I was manic, and I cannot show people my manic writing. Else I wind up in the hospital.

Back to sleep now. Take care

Sleep well Susan.
Hang in there. The mania goes away.
I think you should have another psychiatrists to handle your meds.
It's been a long time you've been suffering side effects and making changes in doses.

Hi, Susan -

I just want to say I'm thinking of you and wishing you wellness. Those doses sound scary to me. I'm always shocked by psychiatrists who toss off prescriptions without telling you everything that could happen - and likely not even knowing. By now I shouldn't be - but I'm so sorry you've had to go through such a medication mess.

My best to you -- John

Hello Susan:

I chanced upon your blog today, and wish you all the best. You are absolutely right about your blog title: hell is no place to stop. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other, and you will come out on the other end. Will be thinking of you.

@Ana, yes, the mania went away. Now I am comfortably numb, and trying to sleep. I am hanging in there. I have friends like you who make it worth while.

@John- thank you....that means so much to me coming from a writer as yourself.
thank you.

@Michael- thank you for stopping by my blog. I am glad you did, and hope you will again.

Unfortunately, I've made the mistake of posting when high. Fortunately, I found a lot of people were more than understanding about it.
