It sure feels good to have a support system
I read that 1 in 25 people develop a thyroid problem. This is something I am very familiar with because I had mine removed two years ago due to an autoimmune disease. I will watch out for the symptoms, but hopefully his doctor will monitor all of his bloodwork like he should.
As for tremors, his hands have had tremors for years, hopefully they don't get worse.
I do worry about his eczema though. I read that the lithium can aggravate skin conditions. We will just have to keep trying different creams for that if it gets too bad. But my theory is that if he's more regulated with the lithium that he will be less nervous and the eczema won't be any worse than it was before. It may even be better.
I noticed today that he was pretty hyper. His leg wouldn't stop bouncing up and down when I was talking to him. I think it is just a normal switch though and not due to one day's medication. It will take time for him to stabilize and I realize that.
He brought me flowers and candy today for our 11th anniversary. He said, "I'm glad we made it this long." His card said, "Yours forever." It was really sweet.
Now I just have to find something for him. I always have to wait until the last minute for fear of him snooping through receipts. I woke up this morning and all of the receipts were out of my wallet and on the counter. He's so funny when it comes to presents. He can't wait to get them and can't wait to give them.
Well, I'm off to the mall,
Talk to you all later.
