Short update

Went to the headologist today, and we've added lithium to my cocktail after all.

Apparently what I've been experiencing is called "breakthrough mania." Lithium is the best anti-manic out there, so I'm on a very low dose now, as well as on my other drugs, to see if it helps. I can tell you that I was making my way through the stages today, and thinking things have gotta change. They just have to.

Let's ALL cross our fingers that this helps.

Fingers crossed here, too. I was thinking about you today, at Target (WHY?)and hoping that something was going to work. "We" the family of nutcases, are all on combined drugs, some of them quite untraditional pairings. Yet, no murders, no suicides, and because my guns were taken away years ago, no arrests. Your pain and fear are palpable,

Girl, if you need ANYTHING please call. You have my number. I can be there in 24 hours if you need someone to stare at Livvie while you run through the back woods, scsreaming for the hell of it.

Hope this med works Julie. I'll keep everything crossed for you.

I'm so sorry you're having such a tough time with this.

Love & Hugs
