Ok...so i am just OVER the damn side effects...i MEAN O V E R I T !!!!!
The weight gain, hair loss, foggy head, acne (at my age is absolutely embarrassing), dry skin and bloat...I mean REALLY...what the hell good is this **** anyway? I know I know...it's the supposed "Gold Standard' right...well not my GOLD STANDARD!!! Of course I can't mention the fact that I stopped Lithium about a week ago to any family or friends because they will all be pissed off (rightfully so I suppose)...BUT I NEED A BREAK! I just feel so out of control taking these meds...I have no freakin clue who I am anymore...where is the line between the Michelle I know and this CrAzY Bipolar???? Bear with me I am just venting...that's what this is here for right??? I sometimes ask myself..."Maybe they just misdiagnosed you...(don't laugh out there ppl...I know what you are thinking). This is not the life I had envisioned for myself...I don't want to be on a pity party...I want to have my life back...I KNOW it could be worse...I am blessed by much, and even at the end of this vent I know feel kinda bad...for BITCHING...sorry I am all over the damn place...
