Day 17-21 Of Lithium

oops I'm slipping with the regular entries. So in the last week I've missed about 3 doses, mostly due to carelessness. Yet I'm feeling really good, but I can sense an impending danger in that. I start to feel positive and happy, believe I don't need medication and then all of a sudden....lowwwwwwww. I said I would commit to a month of lithium so I must constantly remind myself to do just that. I need to be diligent and monitor it myself, because no-one is going to do it for me and I wouldn't want them to.

The thought struck me today that Spring has just started (where I live anyway). It's well documented that people with bipolar experience manic episodes in springtime. I have to stay grounded and sensible without getting bored and depressed. Such a hard balance to strike.
