I know I haven't posted in a long time so I hope you don't mind me stopping by. Anyway, here is my question...do you ever get "bad" or "scary" thoughts? And, is it part of bp?
I just had my lithium decreased. This was my first med change since being in the hospital. Pdoc made the change because I am gaining so much weight (about 45-50 lbs at this point) and he is hoping that by decreasing the lithium I will gain weight slower or not at all.
Anyway, about a week after the decrease I started having some not so pleasant thoughts. They may happen once per day, or every other day. These thoughts are rather disturbing to me and when they happen it takes me a little while to get them out of my mind. I am not going to describe any of these thoughts to you, as they may be triggering, but the main ones have something to do with my kids being harmed very badly by someone (not me or dh...like a stranger). I don't really know what this is about...is this part of bp or something else? Does anyone else ever have this problem?
If you need to ask more questions to figure out what I'm talking about, I'll answer them the best I can.
Thank you for your time.
