i read that lithium can't MAKE you anything, it cannot MAKE you depressed-its just a mood stabilizer and thats all it will do. so if this is true, then the depression thats been creeping in on me is just me cycling. which i suppose is a wierd relief bc it means that the drug may still be able to help me given enough time to reach the right levels. how long does that take? or maybe my anti-depressant dosage needs to be upped. i'm trying to ride this out until i see the doc again in a few weeks. i just hope the depression doesn't get really bad. so far its just the little things, like that voice that says i'm a loser and my life isn't worth anything, and disturbing images in my head. something is helping, probably the meds, but i have this ability somehow to not let this consume me like it did before. like, there is something in me that i can hold on to and know that this is something i will get through.
