OK. The visual disturbances were part of sleep deprivation over the past 4 nights because of upper respiratory infection symptoms keeping me awake, but the dehydration causes a problem with the topamax and lithium. They are concerned about my lithium level so they drew a lithium level this afternoon. I cant believe I didn't think about dehydration and lithium toxicity. I'm a freaking nurse for crying out loud. I just hate being the patient.....I want to be the nurse not the patient...Now, I,m crying and I've been manic all day. I'm ok. I'll be manic again soon. I just hate being the patient, I'm not cycling. But, I can't help but kick myself for not seeing stuff like that.....anyway. That's the end of the story.
