I'm still having trouble sleeping with paranoia at night and lithium is causing thyroid problems

http://youtu.be/4tsQaZaWooA This link scares the ■■■■ out of me, whether real or not. Even though I’m sleeping in a room with other people, I keep seeing this creature watching me. Closing my eyes just makes things worse, music isn’t helping, just staying up and sitting up is…

Also my thyroid levels came back abnormal, and could be the cause of all my difficult symptoms. Have any off you experienced this on lithium? It’s been helping soooooo much with my suicidal thoughts. I don’t want to go off it.

There’s a terrific new article on lithium in this week’s Current Psychiatry. If you want some self-empowerment to help you make an educated decision about further tx with lithium, I think you’ll get plenty by wading through this article a little at a time.
