Advice & Tips: In Canada the Lithium trial stopped because they couldn't find a positive effecti. In Holland the purpose of the trial is also to see if the survival time is longer with Lithium. In Holland the trial continues. I think research is the only way to find a cure: so I am still in this trial. I can't tell if it does any good to my progress. I guess not: I am progressing faster than average.

Advice & Tips: I am confident I had lithium, and not placebo. My energy seemed to rise in time with dosage, and when the lithium study ended, my energy fell. However, I cannot affirm it was the lithium as other potent variables were at work at the same time (more food, less work, better adaptation. And I ended as I returned from an exhausting trip).
