Lithium Withdrawal

Has anyone taken lithium and successfully come off of it? I plan to taper from 900mg but would like advice on how much and how often. I'm not sure that I can get any doctors' approval, so I may plan to do this alone with only 300mg tablets. I have read on comingoff.com to try 10% a month. Would I do a 90mg decrease every month or 90mg decrease for one month then 81mg decrease?

The life I would have liked to of had with you.  But I am broken and trying to fix myself on my own, it is hard and I have to fix myself on my own...  I don't even know if you were ever a possibility in reality.  But I had to try and tell you something.. 

 

Perhaps I need(ed) someone a little emotionally stronger than me to help me put myself back together into a better man.  But  I  don't know what I am really doing any more...

 

I just felt I had to tell you something.

 Another day , another hour, all my brain does is torment and ponder.

I walk around with nice clothes on, my hair comed, my mustache trimmed and my face shaved,  yet inside I am a screaming mess,  waiting for something to happen in my environment, someone to cause a fight some where about anything, so I can just finally explode and let all the rage loose, let all my anixety,fear,frustration,worry, hopes and dreams just let loose .. and when the dust settles the blood dries up and everyone gets hauled off... someone stops and asks me , who are you and what happened.
