So I talked to my dr yesterday about my suicidal thoughts, etc. Of course he asked me if I had a plan to which I replied ‘no’ as I do not. Doesn’t want me in the hospital....yet.

He wants me to consider lithium as a longer term solution to all of this madness in addition to therapy. In the meantime, he gave me a few weeks worth of benzos.

A bit scared of the lithium but at this point I guess it does not matter as the alternative is worse.

Has anyone had any experience with this drug? helpful or not? Thanks.
I think it would be ok to talk to your doctor about your fears. I think a lot of people who take lithium take it on a long term basis and like it.
