Why can't we all just get along.............I guess we have to make a decision on which way to go. My rx dr told me that you can not just put serotonin back into your brain you have to use the anti depressants which allows the flow of serotonin to go from nerve to nerve...basically. My naturopathy dr tells me that by using vitamins & amino acids you can slowly but SURELY put the serotonin back into your brain. She also mentioned that there is more serotonin in your intestines than your brain for whatever that's worth. I've been anxiety free for about 6 weeks now and so far off of the high blood pressure meds. I still feel a little tired every now and again along with slight headaches here and there. I'm working on getting my levels back to where they were which I've been doing strictly with vitamins. I tried the lexapro for 4 weeks and after 2 weeks it worked great but I just stopped taking it after reading so many posts on how people have went from 5 to 10 to 20 to40 mgs then tried another drug and so on and so on. It just seems like theres no end to the meds once you start your pretty much stuck. I know it's only been 6 weeks but it has made a bid difference for me and as I said I'm anxiety free. I've also made some lifestyle changes which I believe was the no.1 reason I got over this stuff because it is a psycological issue more than anything else. I have an interesting journal entry from a few weeks back for those interested. I just wanted to say that I am all natural and believe that rx meds can do nothing more for anxiety than put a quick patch on it. But I think you will wear that patch for the rest of your life as you will see in some of these posts. I care for everyone out there who battles this stress, anxiety, depression stuff and I'm saying this to help not to hinder or change ones mind but only to help. This is just my story and so far a story of success that I wanted to share with all of you. Some of these posts are very depressing and I wanted to add a positive one to the mix. Good luck to you all from the bottom of my heart!!!!!

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
