lithium's help

Posted by rjlockhart37 on May 23, 2022, at 0:56:27

i've been taking lithium for about a week, and i do notice some improvement, but tonight i've been in a mood, where thinking needing lithium to pull me out of a slump. It has helped, yet im only taking 600, and taking 400 of lamotragine, 2 mood stablizers - vs depression. I'll tell you what it is, i have low stimulation, i have low energy and then i have to use adrenaline to make myself go

I'm on them both at mid doses, with zyprexa. Bipolar medications for someone who is not bipolar, mood stablizers treating cognitive forgetfulness, i'm not bipolar but all the reviews and even psych hospitals say im bipolar, i don't have manic episodes, but ill go through a period where i have no stimulation, low mood, just feel like existing, can't get things done, just exist. Lithium is a chapter for me, with my situation. Bipolar meds, i don't think im bipolar i've had so much forgetfulness, cognitive problems, ADHD, psychological trauma, all bound together.

We'll just see, i see my doctor soon, hope she will do something mor to adjust meds, lithium does work i noticed. But anyways, end of log

when i was young, they diagnosed me with ADHD, yes i was on all the stimulants, adderall, dexedrine, and they did provide improvement, i was able to sit and focus, and have a mindset to get things done. But the one thing about me, when amphetamine wears off, it is horrible for me, i get depressed, low stimulation, feel drained, that nothing look forward too after it's worn off. I don't know how other people cope with the adderall crash, but i hated it. they medication helped me, adderall, dexedrine, yes like i said i could sit with a motivted mindset, and do complicated tasks, and was able to keep going, then after wearing off, i lost all that focus, and it turned into depression and feeling loss. I had someone who interfered, with alot of this but i'm going to keep it discreet. It worked, yes - i was able to do complicated tasks, and focus, but when it wore off, all that focus turned into irrtibility thinking you have to keep going even though your depressed from adderall wearing off. Adderall crash depression.

I was on various benzo's when i was in high school, first klonopin - klonopin is great for sleep, but it made me depressed, i hated it, ativan - losens up worries and feel a burden being lifted off, everything feels more eased. Xanax - mood improvement, awesome for sleep, if your in hell panic, xanax will calm you down. valium - there's no liking for valium, all i noticed was it made me calm, that everything is calm, and stablized. Ok i have no idea why im writing this, but i still have ADHD issues, because i cannot ... focus, or have the ability to handle complicated tasks that amphetamine provided. So, im on two mood stablizers, they do help, they make things back down to earth, less moody. But they still don't help with things to function. Ok i don't know why im writing an autobiogrpahy about me, but that's what happened. I'm on bipolar medications, but i feel im not bipolar, that i have cognitive problems, and scatter brained. Lamictal helps with impulsiveness, but still it can't trwat the cognitive deficwt that requires a amphetamine stimulant. I don't know why, adderall helped me but you can get a crash from it, and you have to deal with it. So, that's my 2 cents. All of this, drfit would not of happened, if adderall crash and me trying to deal with it, i'm on bipolar meds, none of this would of happened, if i learned to deal with the crash. Yes all these doctors, addiction doctors, will say addict mentality, drug liking, drug dependece, wanting a narcotic, yes i know all of those, i've studied addiction psychiatry myself afer going through rehabs. I know how the system works in rehabs, i've studied addiction treatment, i know it very well....I know what addiction doctor would say, because i've studied what they have studed, on my own time. Anyways, quick review of history online, i know i will regret posting this by tommorow, but i had to post it. I feel just a drift, but there's a saying 'get up, dress up, show up, and never give up. So, yeah i won't give up, and niether will you, keep going despite any trauma that happend. Belive and be who you are, don't be like a mentor, or public figure, you put together who you are, you make your own path, you nake your own thoughts, you make your own voice, No one is you, and that is your power to excerise. Hope for the best, thank you for reading. End of log

now i regret posting, i write all fast and messy, then don't even edit, and hit submit buttom. Already regretting posting this after i read it, this is the internet, not a therapist session. But i don't have a therapist, so the internet is there to listen. Anyways, work hard, don't give up, make yourself authentic, ideas, thoughts, and be who you are, and don't forget it. Don't copy successful people, you have to build your own path, learn your own ways, be diffrent, and don't follow the crowd, let the crowd follow you. Ok, its almost 2am, logging out. Don't give up.
