I went in to see my doctor on Thursday. We talked for a long time about my options, and eventually decided to start on lithium.
What is the likelihood of another episode? I may never have another one, or something could happen tomorrow. There is no way to tell, and having an episode is too risky. I may hear voices telling me to do uncharacteristic, potentially dangerous things. They could even tell me to do something to myself, to others, to Greta…
So, we went on to explore other options, and after hearing the risks of all other available medications, we chose lithium as the safest option.
I never, ever thought I would have to be making this choice! It’s scary, definitely, but I’m comfortable and happy with our decision.
Saturday mornings are usually a group run from my house. People as far away as Stillwater, Red Wing, Minneapolis, S. St. Paul, Faribault, etc have come to join. Want to join in on the fun? Send me an email at nichole (dot) porath @ gmail.com and I’ll add you to the email distribution list I use to send out the invite each week! The more, the merrier!
|Ready for an 8 mile run Sunday morning!
Well, she was ready for a mid-morning nap, let’s be honest.
|We ended the run at the park to celebrate 60 degrees in November!|
|She loved it, I swear|
|I decided to make the blanket 44″ square, the width of the fabric, which made things really easy.
About ready to cut!
|Fluff got everywhere. Pants, carpet, Greta’s mouth.|
|Now the back|
|This one is going to take a while… good thing I have some time 🙂|
|Greta’s in progress, 2014|
|Yep, both of ours are 100% cross stitched!|
