snoozzinsuz2 Posted October 13, 2010 Share Posted October 13, 2010 Ok so I am finally feeling GOOD and the pdoc worries it might get TOO good! I am on a tight leash tdoc appts every week and seeing pdoc every other with promises to call if I start flying too high. This is part of the compromise I made... you see she wants to put me on Lithium and I SOOO don't want it for the following reasons: 1. I am beyond terrified of needles and don't like the idea of blood level checks AT ALL 2. I would rather try to control it -- if possible-- with what I am on right now 3. Hydration-- I HATE drinking water... I drink Gatorade or milk (max 2 sodas a day) so she was worried that the extra calories to stay hydrated would add pounds (which she says I could stand to do but I don't want to) 4. Something in me just doesn't want it... I am afraid of it but I can't explain or don't know why the pdoc totally understands all my reasons... and she even agreed to do the blood draws herself to try and put me more at ease if we do go that route-- talk about going above and beyond! The compromise was that if I stayed where I am no Lithium.. if I get higher I agreed to TRY it... if I don't like it then she won't make me stay on it. Anyone that's on it that was afraid to try it in the beginning... Any horror stories Any remarkable turnarounds from perceptions to reality... I'm looking for any kind of feedback here-- and tell me I am irrational if you need-- I get it! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
