Try to take it one day at a time. Not all days are going to be good, but you should expect most of them to be. It sounds like you are very gradually getting better. Enjoy the good days and take the bad ones as they come. We all want to have more good days than bad. So you aren't alone there. Today could be better for me too, but I am trying to go with the flow of things. It isn't always easy, bue we try. I hope that your day gets better. Do you think that the lithium helped you?
We all get that feeling of not going to be able to beat depression. Know that we have been there and we uncerstand how you feel. It is hard, fighting day to day, what seems like forever. But it will get better, if it doesn't, think about a med adjustment or change. You, like most of us, have probably been on many types of meds. It gets frustrating trying time after time, but there is a combination out there for you and you will find it. I take abilify with my anti depressant. Have you ever tried that. It is basically a mood stabilizer but used for many things. It seems to compliment that ad and make it work better. It helps me with obsessive thinking too.
I truly hope that you feel better soon. Keep us posted.
