Allison: What's all the stigma (about lithium) ...

Hi, yes, it's funny how everyone seems to have heard of lithium and equate it with very serious problems. All depression (and manic depression) is serious! Maybe at one time, lithium was a famous 'superstar' drug like prozac, and the stigma lingers. Or maybe it is because the level between therapeutic dose and toxic dose are not too far apart from one another. I really don't know.

But, like you, the reactions from other people really bother me. Even with lithium, sometimes I think I am still too damn hypersensitive. I honestly believe lithium has saved my life, and could help so many more people if the stigma wasn't there. Janice.
