    • Just thought I'd share how much Zinc has helped me in the last 6 weeks. My god it's like night and day! I don't want to get anyone's hopes up but it really helped me.  I've had panic attacks for so long now and the anxiety that comes with never knowing when one will occur or being anxious about the possibility of one occurring. I have done cognitive behaviour therapy. I am very, very good at acceptance. I know panic and anxiety inside and out. This knowledge has never completely cured me. Panic is always there ready to attack, it's been my mental athletics that has kept me functioning regardless. I "think" my way through the attacks. I "accept" my way through them.  I read somewhere about copper overload and how if your copper is too high, your Zinc will deplete. Zinc is needed for heaps of bodily processes, including helping B vitamins to work properly. I've always taken a multi complex B tablet. I didn't think it did much. Then I added Zinc and wow!!!! I think so much clearer now. I'm calm. Not because I worked mentally hard to stay calm but calm because I just am. Anytime I feel on edge, doubtful or anxious, I nibble a little Zinc and feel great soon after. I've been dealing with this long enough to know that this is not a placebo. It really helps.  I'm not sure if this will help everyone but I had to share. Google " copper overload" or "pyroluria" for more info.  At first Zinc made me a bit sick, so don't go taking too much. My tablets are 25mg and I only need a third of that every other day. Any more than that and I'd feel nauseated. After a month though, I find I can tolerate more.  I'm going to see a naturapath and doctor to find out exactly why Zinc is such a game changer for me. I'd be interested to know if Zinc helps anyone else. It's like a "brave" pill. Anytime I need courage, I take Zinc and the courage shows up..  I really hope this helps someone else as much as it has me. It's so good to feel level headed. I haven't missed a day at work for two months. That's amazing for me!  Like antidepressants, I think Zinc works because I already have a good mental capacity to relax my anxiety because of previous therapy I've had, so Zinc by itself probably won't "cure" you. You actually have to do some mental work too. And have an understanding of the disorder.  It can't hurt to try. 
    • Hey everyone! I recently had a test done to show how I metabolize different medications. One of the tests also showed how I metabolize “folate” or “Folic Acid.” Because there is a significant mutation in my gene, I can’t metabolize folic acid at all. My psychiatrist prescribed “Deplin” and I have taken 15mg for two days so far. I woke up this morning around 5:30am with my mind wandering all over the place, and feelings of severe anxiety. Now I’m exhausted and scared to go to sleep Im starting to really freak out thinking that the Deplin is causing a type of mania in me. Or worse :’/
    • I have two small red spots they look like like very short small red lines one the inside of my lip (bottom). Two weeks ago I had a small red crutches (very small) inside my lip in another spot (upper lip) and then it left. That one hurt slightly. Thirst two I have now don’t hurt whatsoever unles I push extremely hard on them with my tongue. My lips tingle (but I think it’s because I’m stressed I got the tinglingling tongue two weeks and then it stopped when I was relaxed). I’ve had canker sores before and they don’t look like that. Please help I’m very stressed and I have tests to take.  
    • yeah i wouldn't worry about it then. give it 3-6 months, if it's still there then i'd set up a doctor's appointment. you should spend adequate time letting the issue just run it's course though, if it's anxiety related. the issue may just resolve itself as soon as you forget about it. if it doesn't then yeah go to the doctor, get the tests done, listen to what they say, and go from there
    • I can do everything that I normally do. Like I don’t have a problem running or walking on my tiptoes or walking on my heels. It’s just that my left leg feels lazy.

      Hi Gilly.... I think I have discussed this with you before. So worried about this burning skin which I have had for a few years. With me it all over.... my arms, legs, face, some areas of my back.  Drives me crazy and again it freaks me out about diseases. Dear God how long can so many symptoms persist. Been over 40 yrs.  Can you help me!!!!

      Think im getting worse. I dissociated in front of my support worker for the first time today. So much that she had to turn off the main road to pull over safely to help me.
