Hi David, I hope you can call the Canadian lines and find someone to talk to and a good place that has space open. Sometimes going into the emergency room directly works best. This way you can immediately see a doctor and get an immediate referral to another inpatient hospital or admitted to that hospital.
My son, 30, takes Lithium and so did my grandfather. It helped my grandfather for many years, and is helping my son. He has his blood drawn monthly to monitor the level and has to keep his water intake constant to keep the lithium level constant. He takes Ability and Lithium and he does well as long as he gets regular sleep and stays away from alcohol.
I hope you can go to the hospital today. I will be sending you well wishes from Colorado!
