Re: Frustrated over finances

I too can't afford all that nor is it available in my country. It's almost a relief. not to have the financial stress and that of all the tests etc. I'd rather spend my little money on basic vitamins, eat well and get a gym membership.

Re: Serotonin, Depression and SSRI Antidepressants

Final update: Managed to find a balance by having a tiny amount of prozac a day, a few mg measured out. Going to continue this and am feeling much better. Little side effects and less withdrawal problems (palpitations etc all gone)
