I have always thought I was depressed but was just diagnosed as bipolar and given lithium. Lithium seems to make me tired and I was already fatigued from depression and hypothyroidism. Do you think lithium is right for me and can I be bipolar without knowing it? What is a mild manic flare like? Neither I nor my family/friends have ever thought of me as bipolar. I'm always just tired or extremely tired. Thank you in advance for your input!
