So last week - hell, two days ago - I didn't even have the energy that God gave a Sloth. I was managing about one thing a day and wasn't bathing or brushing my teeth enough. Depression is a bitch, you know?

And then four days ago I started taking lithium.

Guys, I'm just gonna say it - unless something goes dramatically wrong, you will pry this prescription from my cold, dead hands. The difference is fucking amazing. I'm still nowhere near 100%, but I'm totally thrilled to be hovering around 50%, considering where I was last week. I got shit done today! It was AMAZING. And I've only been taking it for FOUR DAYS.

Other things - both the psych and my doctor were very very clear that I need to cut my sugar. It's not a weight loss thing, it's not a diabetes thing, it's a fatty liver thing. So I started with my beloved Dr Pepper. Last week in one day I downed four or five of them. It's currently been 2 days since I had a soda. I'm not cutting them out entirely! The limit is 1 a day! It's just that I'm too lazy to go get the 36 pack out of Mom's car. :P So yeah, 48 hours soda free. I've also upped my water intake from, oh, none? I'm drinking 64-80 oz a day right now - it's required to keep the lithium from shredding my kidneys, but it's also good for me.

Oh, and I've actually started walking again. Today was the third day in a row that I went out for at least 15 minutes.

I mean, my diet is still a hot mess and I'm still unsure about veggies and shit, but this is progress and I'm so fucking proud of myself.
