    Hugs, Pebbles. That sounds like such a scary place to be, when you KNOW what you want to do to feel better, and yet your mind and body keep tripping you up. I wish I had some kind of answer. Thinking of you.

    Based on a conversation in another journal, I have decided to increase the amount of certain amino acids that I am taking.

    I am increasing l tyrosine to 3000mg and 5htp to 300mg. These aminos control serotonin levels.

    Good luck P. I hope the increased aminos help.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    I thin the aminos will help. I notice a difference when I forget to take mine.

    So, my Doctor is concerned that my cholesterol has gone up from 172 to 216. She wants me to go on a low fat, low cholesterol diet...for now. God the ignorance is stunning. I imagine that statins will be recommended next year. I will not be taking them.

    I would guess that my cholesterol numbers are higher due to the binging issue.

    I also have a low grade UTI. I am going for the antibiotics because I have been a little ill all summer. I contracted something that has had my glands swollen and my ears full of fluid since late June. Hopefully, the abs will kill it. I think the uti is a result of that as well. (TMI alert) Not looking forward to the yeast infection to come.

    If you can get a hold of pau d'arco tea, stock up for while you're taking the antibiotics. Drinking 4 cups of that per day (what was recommended on the box, I think), after allowing each bag to steep covered for about 10 minutes, REALLY helped when I was struggling with yeast infections. Personally, I'd recommend some grapefruit seed extract or oil of oregano (can get it in capsules) for a few weeks to help wipe out whatever has been lingering, along with some kind of probiotic. Do you have any kind of probiotic intake right now, in supplements or food?

    I have a probiotic that I take periodically. I heard that taking probiotic during an antibiotic course is pointless because the good guys get wiped out too. Any thoughts on that? Thanks for the tea recommendation.

    Honestly, I'm not sure about abx/probiotics. My holistic docs have always said take your probiotic in the evening and abx in the morning. I don't know if it helps at all. I suppose it depends on the strength of the abx. It's all very confusing

    Logic would say they'd all get wiped out at once... but I don't know for sure. I hope you're feeling better soon.
