No mania here, just double depression. I really don't know exactly how frequenty my major depression cycle is, although this year, it seems to be more frequent, about once every 3 months it has been REALLY bad. The lithium is supposed to (hopefully) provide more AD effect, and maybe stop the cycling. If it works more quickly on mania, I guess I might have to wait to see effects on my depression.
OTOH, I am noticing slight bits of improvement every day. All this week I was pretty passive and very unproductive at work, couldn't motivate myself to get much done. But I noticed today that I was friendlier with people and even laughed and joked a bit. My friend told me this evening that I seem better. I am very impatient, tho, because my tolerance for the idea of my depression continuing is zero. I am terrified of it sticking around and getting worse again. I feel like a cat that has used up all nine lives...
