  • Lithium has saved my life and my brain. I’ve been taking it for 4 years and even though it sounds weird, I can FEEL my brain healing from all the damage my depression has caused. New pathways are opening up. Emotions are working with each other, not against. This past year I have felt differently than I have in 40 years, I feel like a normal person. It’s the little things, like spontaneously laughing at something that’s funny…feeling confident about myself and the world…remembering information I learned in school that I haven’t been able to recall in decades…not collapsing with tears and worry over every little minor event. I literally have stopped worrying about things, and that has always been my biggest albatross. I will take this for the rest of my life, no matter what it does to my kidneys. Feeling peaceful and normal and happy means more to me than an early death from kidney failure. (But I think my kidneys are going to be just fine.)
