Hi, I’m Jaycee and this is my first post on this site. I looked at this site once before, but was turned off by by the convoluted registration process! LIghten up!
I am returning to diet/ supplement yet again , I keep ‘falling of the wagon’ nAnother side effect for your list is agoraphobia. I get to the point that I can’t leave the house, I cross the road rather than have to talk to someone. Also anxiety, which of course is related to depression, and panic attacks. Also phobias. I can’t always remember what i was doing 3 days ago let alone what I had for dinner! Diet & supplement helps these symptoms, so we can’t give up!
