I seriously laughed out loud at your description of meds hitting you like a baseball bat. SSRIs don't work for me anymore (after 20+ years, my brain might have just developed a tolerance). I've tried Lithium, and had really high hopes, but it just made me incredibly tired. I went from sleeping 9 hours a night to 14 or more. I'm glad to hear it's working out for you!
