missed Lithium dose-had a really bad day:(
I accidentally forgot my AM Lithium Carbonate this AM, and I figured I would just start back on my night dose and go on my way. I figured "no Lithium"-I would have more energy-maybe even hypomania. Wrong! I had a hard day at work-I was tired, groggy, and foggy. I saw one of my best friends tonight and we talked and stuff, and I almost started cying. I was down, like flat down!
Is this normal? I intentionally stopped my Lithium several years ago, and became delusional and ended up in the hospital. I was and am so sick of being a prisoner to the effects of these drugs. I know I need them, but I feel I am unable to function without them. It is such a frustrating thing, knowing I can't function without Lithium, but also hold back being me on the drug.
I guess my question is: will I bounce back returning to my regular dose or do I need to call my psych??
