Yes, I know that sounds like a silly title for a thread. But something strange has been happening: the healthier I get (and a lot of coconut oil is my newest improvement), the "meaner" I get. You know, mean for a girl. Like speaking up instead of shutting up.

I had this weird surge of energy on Thursday that felt like molten lava in my body rising up and filling my body with heat and energy. So I said some things publicly that were bothering me, about some injustices at work. I got in some trouble, but I'm not sorry I did it, really.

I wonder if anybody else has had this experience. My usual old depression and hopelessness is gone; it has been replaced by a kind of woman warrior righteous indignation and protectiveness toward powerless people.
