HI–This is for vero_86

I have to say…I too have struggled w/ depression (not requiring medication tho)just will every so often fall into a bad dark funk…depression…and get anxious more regularly…not panic attacks …but anxious over things thta I dont see btohering anyone else…I decided to go back on diet…yet again…becuase I remembered that at the time in my life when I was happiest adn most productive, I was doing two things…1)my PKU diet and on it really well and 2) going to a support group (for another issue that Im not sure I want to get into here, nothing personal…So I can relate…just stay on diet…it really helps…
