Hey, guess what? I’m almost cured!
Okay, that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but I’m at the point in my mental health treatment where I only need to pop one type of pill – serotonin medication 1selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). These little guys boost my mood by increasing my serotonin levels, and it seems that’s a good thing. Sure, there are some side effects, but hey, who doesn’t love a good night of sweating and nausea?
My doctor seems to think I’m making progress, so we’ve reduced my other medications and put all our faith in these magic pills. I’m excited to see how this experiment plays out. If all goes well, I’ll be back to my old, cheerful self in no time – or at least until the next mental breakdown. Fingers crossed!
The funny thing is, serotonin is in the sunshine, and so is Vitamin D. One reason we chose Malta is that I’m a sun worshipper, and I spend loads of time in the garden outside. However, my body seems to be lacking both serotonin and Vitamin D, which is a bummer. So, I’m putting my trust in ‘Nicky’s Little Helper’ – which in my case is a combination of serotonin pills and a hair-nail compound with tons of Vitamin D, on top of my daily worship sessions.
Let’s see if this works!
