majikfaerie, can you find tryptophan? You can use that in lieu of 5-htp.
Well, today has been quite the day. I am going off of everything (that I've been on since monday) and trying them one at a time. TMC suggests beginning it all at once and then if you have problems to quit and restart with each supp individually. That is where I am. I've been back on my adrenal supp for a week or so and added the thyroid supp (I took both these when pregnant) Monday. It has l-tyrosine in it. I felt very good Mon, altho slightly wired. Tuesday, I added l-tryptophan, GABA, inositol, chromium, and GSE. All this in addition to my usual vitamin/mineral, cal, iron, mag, and vit c and b's, and fish oil, oh my.
So, yesterday I still felt a bit wired. I had anxious dreams and restless sleep last night. Today, some anxiety (taking no extra supps, just my general) and tense in the pit of my stomach, jittery, and very, very tired.
So now to figure out what's going on. I've read TMC twice now and I fail all four quizzes. I also think my hormones are raging, which is why I've decided (and finally am desperate enough) to eat my placenta as well.
I am still hopeful that if I lower the dose and start each amino individually that I'll be able to figure out what all this is about. Anyone else have any experiences like this? Ross says it's rare...
let me know what you think
On Monday, aside from being slightly wired, I felt the best I have in so long. The difference between today and Monday are astounding.
