Well I have reduced my dose of lithium by half now and I think it explains the vivid memories from my childhood which had been clouded in a ‘lithium fog’ before. These memories are not disturbing and I kind of like having them – recalling things but not getting caught up in the emotions that the memories want to stir up in me. Some day I might even write them all down and share them because it’s amazing what I’m remembering! (So, if were in Glasgow with me around 1998 beware!!)
Anyway, I found this article from The Observer back in 2001 and I could relate to so much of what the writer, Fiona Campbell, said so I thought I’d share it with you. Have a read and tell me what you think. And, don’t panic because I’m NOT HER even if share some of her psychotic symptoms!
I have also shared a picture of Chris and Foxy because they saved me and they save me every day. Chris steps up to the plate EVERY TIME I need him to. He is my rock (and I am his fire, but that’s another story). And Foxy is the light of my life. He is such a crazy little animal and having him in my life has forced me to move out of my head and into the real world a bit more. It doesn’t matter how stressed, tired or depressed I am because he still needs a walk in the fresh air every day and he always needs a cuddle! We had just had his hair cut here but at the moment is he much hairier with very expressive eyebrows!
