  1. I'm in a pickle. My roommates son was playing in the bathroom one day and was messing with our supplements. He emptied out my Vitamin C capsules & replaced with 200mg 5-htp instead. I'm sensitive to serotonin & had a bad experience a number of years back which had serious consequences for me. I haven't taken meds since. For about a month I'd been getting really ill.

At first, I was petrified of not having my eating disorder as a crutch. The first few weeks I muscled through, and kept myself as distracted as possible when I f
  5. Today I attended a lecture for CEUs by Michael Lara, a psychiatrist in the Bay Area, entitled Food for Thought: How Nutrients Affect Mental Health and the Brain. While we would have all found issues with it, I found it very interesting, and as I have time I will try to post some things here.
