Thank you for taking the time to reply. Your description of weaning off depression meds is wonderful. I have done the same thing but find I still suffer from it more than I would like. I do notice the empty, hopeless, exhausted, sad (and so on and so on) feelings seem to increase when I eat foods that are empty of nutrients. After a few days of those kinds of foods, it may take a week or more for me to "balance" again. I frankly just thought it was me being silly and finding a "reason" for these awful feelings when there truly is no connection between nutrition and "mental health". Now to find a Physician that is willing to work with me. My current Dr. has refused to acknowledge any connection between diet and mental health. She wants me to go back on an anti-depressant. Nope. I have developed a liver issue although the Dr. says the med wasn't a factor. My experience tells me different. Again…valuable information. Thank you.
