So,,, I’m still feeling as if something’s not right mood wise ~ feel like my head is open (only way i can describe it – I’ve felt this way frequently in the past) increased anxiety, some paranoia, I can’t think/function/concentrate, lack of motivation, emptiness,,,) I’m using all my mental energy to do basic functions (as in my pre medication past). I discussed this with my Pdoc on the 11th & he agreed we need to do something med wise. Because he knows I don’t want to try any new meds (I know of many stories of newer meditations causing BAD side effects & because of my medical background), he suggested rechecking my Lithium levels & pending results bump up the dose. Today I got the results from my online chart (thyroid is WNL so no problems with that). My Lithium level is .6 (normal value’s .6 – 1.2), so I’ll most likely be getting a phone call tomorrow regarding increasing my dose. I definitely am looking forward to this ~ DEFINITELY!
