St John's Wort Feedback and Side Effects

I took st. john's wort @ 900mg daily for 2 month duration, but discontinued, as it didn't calm me mentally (although it did calm my body somewhat). I discontinued as it caused me soft stools daily and didn't help me mentally.

Connie...I have the exact same feelings that you do, but they occur in relation to university not the store. Have you found a way around these feelings?

Start a Blog

Many people who are depressed simply lack the ability to channel their energies or express themselves. Sometimes just by writing things down it is easy to feel better about things that happen to you.

If you think expressing yourself or writing your thoughts down might help you then you may want to start a blog. Wordpress is 100% free and easy to use.

Here is my friend Heather's Health Bee, which is about recovering from depression and other related illnesses.
