After getting about 20 hours or so of sleep last week, I was able to sleep a little over 9 hours last night. Thank the good Lord. I was definitely manic all week. Hopefully this insomnia will get better over time because I love how abilify makes me feel. Things are getting a lot better. Dosing of lithium is really improving my racing thoughts. I am very interested in seeing how well I do off lithium. My mom use to take lamictal and abilify. If it worked for her then there is a huge chance it will work for me. I am soooooo much like my mama. Things are really starting to change. I plan on posting medical information and statistics on mental illness eventually. I have to wait until I get over this viscous cycle. There is no telling if I am going to hit a low. A little worried about that because my mania has been pretty intense, it will be bad to hit a low that is equivalent to my manic high I’ve been experiencing.
