Time Out

It turns out that I've been very sick, my Lithium levels at toxic highs and damaging to kidneys, as a result of medication mixtures of Ibuprophen and dehydration. I've taken some time off from work and my boss and work place have been extremely supportive. I'm hoping to go back to work the end of next week. I want to try to keep working. I'm afraid of not working. I don't know what I would do with myself. I'm still having the Lithium cognitive problems of trouble writing, word-finding, tremors, typing, forming letters and talking. I've been through this before with Lithium managing to get by at work in spite of it. It takes a lot of hydration. I'm hoping that gets better this week, but for now I'm going to stop writing and focus on resting.
