It’s Sabotage?

Today I am cranky, well cranky is not the right word. I am on the edge is more accurate. I have no patience for anything or anyone. Even writing this blog is making my fingers and arms feel weird so I want to punch the monitor.

Is it the Lithium? I used to feel like this when I was manic. I don’t have anything else though except the physical feeling of annoyance. I can’t do my Lumosity and I can’t play games, I was packing but that was starting to annoy the shit out of me too.

I realize that I want to blame the Lithium for everything. I think it’s because I am afraid of it working and afraid of it not working. Since I am use to dealing with disappointment. Blame just seems easier.

I am 99% sure that it is causing the itching and tummy troubles. The emotional, while it doesn’t feel like myself maybe it is. I am so pissed off though and on the other hand I want to crawl under a blanket and make it my secret fort no one can get into. I have to keep taking the pills at least until tomorrow. What if these don’t work. I am running out of options. I want to feel good again.. I am so frustrated and this feels horrible.

I mean this annoyance is physical not just mental, I can feel it very clearly in both my arms. Sitting still for any reason is just not good.. so I am going to stop writing and try to do something constructive so I don’t lash out.

Ahh the word I am looking for is agitated.. I am agitated without cause!

  1. It does get tricky working out what is causing certain symptoms.
    I wonder if my lethargy is caused purely by the high dosage of seroquel when my BiPolar is in a lower state that requires less medication to stabilise it. Sometimes I wonder if my meds should be adjusted up and down to reflect the nature of the BiPolar and where I am in the cycle. That could be difficult to manage though, so in the meantime I remain on a high dose. .

    cheers, Glenn
