I went and got my blood test done today. It hard, I had almost talked myself out of going. I almost talked myself out of taking the lithium all together. I did it though. I walked into the lab by myself and waited to get it done, I was talkative with the tech student who took my blood. This was hard for me but I did it. My mental illness can only do so much to me I need to fight back. There are more important things to do then let it control me.
Today I am sad. I am not depressed. I am sad. Yesterday I found out that my best friends tumor is growing again. I love her so much. I don’t want her to suffer in any way. I want her to be happy and healthy. I know we don’t always get what we want but if I could rub something and get one wish, it would be for her to be cancer free.
It kept me up all night thinking. Life is short.. Too short.. We never know what is going to happen. We need to make the most of it. I need to stop being afraid of everything.
I get to meet her face to face in June and there is not a word to describe the happiness that I feel about it. I am also painting her a painting to bring. I hope I get it done in time and that she likes it.
Dani is my best friend, she is my sister, she is my family, she is my support system, she always makes me smile even when I am down. I will be with her forever. I will support and love her, listen and joke. I will leave her be when she needs it and I will be here when she is ready to talk. I can’t wait until I can hug her. I love her unconditionally.
SO proud of you for getting that blood test and your friend is in my prayers – you are a truly wonderful friend! She is lucky that you love her and that you are making her a picture too – I’m sure she knows that! Sending you a big hug across the internet!!!
That Dani is one lucky girl…
On lithium you need to keep up the blood tests as the levels can get toxic. Lithium made me feel like I had no legs. But that was before seroquel, when the meds were wrong. Sounds like you have a true friend. 🙂
Ya it was one of the reasons I didn’t want to be on it but what doesn’t kill ya..
