Good morning chickens. I wish I could put emphasis on "good"... but truthfully
I have been noticing my depression creeping up on me, and quickly.
I can barely get out of bed. Although I temporarily reduced a few of my mood
symptoms from going sugar-free, the reduction of carbs = a reduction
of serotonin = less happy brain chemicals.
Tulsi, also known as Holy Basil, is amazing for stress and anxiety
I'm coming to terms with the fact that anti-depressant medication may
be my only way to feel motivated to enjoy my life. 2011 is not supposed to
be the year in which I stay home with no joy or hope for anything in
my life/future... yet even with the hundreds of herbal supplements I have
acquired, my depression is getting worse and worse and worse.
I made a version of my Egg Scramble Wrap
with spinach, kale, red onion and cottage cheese
Grilled on the George Foreman
Kind of a FAIL... again! ha
Ah where were we? Yes, I am certain that most (if not all) of my core
symptoms are linked to low serotonin. Could this be the reason I eat
so many sweet potatoes? Probably. Sweet Potatoes boost serotonin
and i'm sure that's why I crave them so badly!
True, I hate having to take medicine, but I think I owe it to
myself to LIVE and WANT TO LIVE.. than to try and remedy
my diet and lifestyle with natural this/that without results.
All this was realized over Tea...
How's that for Tea Therapy!
