Mind good, body bad

I have been on lithium for two weeks now and it appears to be doing its job. I feel so much better in myself and have got much more energy. I’ve had very few thoughts of harming myself and feel rather hopeful that this will continue. I’ve even been getting quite a bit of work done, which is good.

Unfortunately I have a bladder infection and so I’m feeling physically rather dodgy and keep spiking a mild but annoying fever and headache as well as the rather obvious side effects of having a bladder infection.

Its really annoying that even though I feel better in my mind my body isn’t keeping up. I just want to go at work hell for leather but I just can’t. Hopefully I’ll feel better soon.
