    Please feel free to share, if you would like to! This is the therapy journal, in case you haven't noticed And suicide is not a subject I shy away from... Been too close, too many times. So believe me - I know your pain, and I'm so sorry that you've felt it.

    In other news, about to meet yoga guy for date two! Outfit (cos I'm sure you all care ):

    We're going to a Vegan restaurant. I'm scared!!!
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    • c60 - no sunburn?
      noopept - no brain fog whatsoever, lessened anxiety, clarity of the mind, tranquility and heightened awareness, focus and ability to learn.
      cerebrolysin - has to be injected, but I've noticed improved scores in Project Euler, though IDK if that's a coincidence.
      choline - for supps that target and deplete it, I've seen improved trigs
      modafinil(occasionally) - nicotine enhancer, crazy energy boost
      dextroamphetamine - gave me insane paranoia, but also very insightful visions
      aniracetam - just another racetam, less potent than noopept by far
      niacinamide - already said enough about this
      b1 - co2, I've noticed more comfort breathing and less brain fog
      caffeine - <3
      aspirin - nagging aches went away
      l-theanine - nothing, maybe helps get into a meditation state, but doubtful
      nicotine - intense relaxation, improvement in creativity, stress suppressant, smokers phlegm sucks though
      biotin - nothing
      coq10 - nothing
      pregnenolone - thicker hair, better mood
      copper peptides - shiny hair, softer skin, no sun damage, cleared up a strand of grey hair I had
      magnesium - improvement in joint pain
      vitamin e - improvement in skin, iron is way down, can fast with less adverse reaction

            • Beautiful sentiment, Derpalerp. Hear hear.
              Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

              • Sorry to hear that you went through that, nameless. I've never seriously attempted suicide before although I've thought about it. In fact, I've thought about the least painful and most effective way to do it--almost obsessively, at times--just in case I needed to, you know. Nice to know that it's always an option.

                YB--LOVE the outfit! And, yeah, you look good! Not sure what you're going to eat at the vegan restaurant though. Fruit salad?

                  Do you take one dose of those per week, by spreading them out each day? (I can't imagine anyone taking all of those in one day, or even 3!)

                  Any of those good for bloating/constipation? What was your main goal for taking niacinamide? (I understand it's great for acne) Would any of those increase collagen in the skin? I'm 22 but my face looks 'flat' like there is something missing like on acne scar victims. (though I hardly get acne anymore and my skin is extremely smooth to the touch, just not to the eye andI don't really have any scarring.)

                  • Aww, you guyses Thank you!

                    Well, what can I say? The yoga guy is super cool. I even told him about Ray Peat! And... he's hot...

                    The vegan place was closed (thank god), so we went to another restaurant that sold normal food... I got ice cream, hah! We sat in the restaurant til they kicked us out, then we had a flustered good bye at the tube station... we hugged and he kind of lingered but in the meantime I let go of my bike and it crashed to ground He kept his arm around me but neither of us made the move. I can't remember what happened after that - I think we arranged to meet on Tuesday.!

                    I presume if we'd been drinking in a bar I would have at least kissed him by now. But dating sober is strange. Sad to say, I've never done it before, and I don't actually think I've ever had sex with someone for the first time without at least having had a few drinks...

                    What about you guys?

                    Also, sups:

                    THanks for sharing those lists! I think I'm gonna try the nonpeps, peppermint oil capsules, and the rhionala. I will also eventually learn to spell their names...

                    Di, my Vit D is in soya oil I really shouldn't be taking them as I've got oestrogen dominance, but fuck it. The tiny amount is not going to kill me. I'd just take them if I was you!

                    • Your date sounds super cool and I can tell you had a good time.
                      I have a question though - how do you ride a bike in a mini-skirt?

                      My Vit D3 is in sunflower oil It's really small gelcap, however. 2000IU

                        I take the noopept, c60, b1, biotin, niacinamide, magnesium, nicotine, caffeine, and copper peptides daily. I weigh the oral doses by gram with a scale, and usually add them to my own gelatin caps.

                        I guess the nicotine and caffeine do. I don't have bloating or constipation, but magnesium should help with that, and so does the carrot salad. As well as some t3.

                        Reasons for taking niacinamide are summed up well here:

                        For collagen try a dermaroller. If you're looking for a face lift of sorts, I've heard testaments about pregnenolone doing that for many people.

                        • I don't drink, so all my dating (and sex) was/is done sober. now, DH and I have breakfast dates. Seriously. it's when the kid is in school and the business doesn't need us, so it's perfect.

                          Sounds like a good date, though.

                            I looked at a dermaroller (I think someone in a journal was also looking at one) but I don't think I could do that, in the risk of causing acne or something. I'll give the carrott salad a try, it's strange that something so simple may help bloating, but I hear about it quite a lot. (and my carrots are ready for harvest!)

                            I found this: http://raypeat.wikispaces.com/Carrot+salad

                            So it's true that if one consumes a lot of orange coloured food, their skin may turn a tint of orange if it's not converted into Vitamin A due to low thyroid? I'm consuming a lot of freshly squeezed OJ and my skin has a bit of a 'glow', which I always though was a good sign of health.

                            • Nstocks or anyone else with acne, i just came across someone advocating crushed up aspirin mixed with a tiny bit of water as the best acne treatment ever. Thought yall should give it a try.

                                Yeah, it's due to beta carotene being a thyroid inhibitor, so wash the carrots thoroughly, grate them, and make sure you get plenty of b12 to help convert it to vitamin a
