So Sept is going to be a month of hell followed by who knows what. I met with my psychiatrist and told him that I was going off the lithium that he had put me on in Apr. The weight gain and exacerbation of my essential tremor made lithium another no-go drug. So the next few weeks will be interesting as I cold turkey off the lithium and switch to another mood stabilizer which I have used in the past.
So my goals this month are simple.
1) Take my meds
2) Drink 10 glasses of water a day (new med requires 1 glass per 25 lbs)
3) Sleep from 12 - 8 am.
4) Eat 3 meals a day.
5) Get to the gym 3 times a week.
So simple and yet so challenging.
