Hi Lu.
This appt is obviously worrying you and making you feel stressed.
If you don't feel well/up to it then perhaps just don't go and ring to say you are unwell as long as you are coping day to day.
You can have my cold as well if you like!
Seriously, as long as it doesn't trigger a pattern of not feeling able to go I'd just give it a miss tomorrow.
Take care.

Hi there Lu and no you're not being a pain!
OK, sounds like you need to grit your teeth and go to the appt then.
You have worked out the other stuff which worrying you so how about make a list then you don't have to keep worrying about remembering them and going round in circles?
Hopefully the doctor will be kind and sensitive. Do you see the same one each time? Could you (or through your CPN) ask why you have to have your levels checked so often? There must be a medical reason but I don't know anything about lithium - sorry.
Maybe see how it goes having your CPN with you instead of your mum. If you cope perhaps you can think of a nice reward for yourself?
I'm sure you will be fine.
Hope you can get some sleep.

I've just taken my meds so will fall asleep having a think about something nice you could do for yourself tomorrow.
Good luck at the appt.

As far as I know lithium levels have to be monitored very carefully, because the therapeutic dose is quite close to a poisonous dose. It's safe as long as it is checked regularly. How long have you been taking lithium? Maybe the checks have to be more frequent at the beginning. Sorry, I don't know much about it, but one doctor was thinking of putting me on it and he explained a bit about it. Ask the doctor or your cpn about as, I think, belle suggested.

Hope tomorrow goes well. Thinking of you!

Hugs xxx

Is there any way you could ring them up and just double check what they're testing you for? xxxx
