    Agreed! lol


    I love the blacklight pink! Awesome! You should totally do it again!

    For the sake of "cleansing", i'd like to go super short again. But when it's that short, I have to shower every morning to tame it... I don't wanna make that kind of commitment. lol

    Aaw! The kitten's cute too. Yeah, that is a better pink for you. I like the dark with the bright pink, though. More contrast is more depth. But that might just be me.

    We'll see where the wallet takes me. Could be that I just freshen up with this crappy pink next month. I don't know if I'll touch up the roots yet. It's going to be a pain regardless. I've never touched up roots before and Boyfriend is not very dexterous. Grrr need more hair-experienced friends.

    That makes me want to watch Dexter again. Got tired of Julia Stiles' character and didn't start the next season with her, but I miss his character. Drssgchic, have you watched it? I feel like you might like him. He is disturbingly relate-able, for a serial killer.

    Passing thought: +1 for less anxiety? Passing conversations with co-workers are actually pleasant. Sure, it's just about the weather, but I don't feel like I have to force it and I really am looking forward to good weather this weekend.

    Excellent news on the anxiety.
    If this pink washes out too soon, try SPLAT! color next. I believe it lasts longer than Manic Panic. As to the roots, I've never done it with bleach. I tend to favor the "rub it on my hands and rub it into my scalp and roots" as opposed to the careful bit by section technique.
    I love Dexter, but I've only seen the first few episodes. He says and does half the shit I only wish I could say and do.
    (Out of curiosity, have you tried GABA yet for the anxiety? It helped me for a while, esp combined with tryptophan.)

    I have been dealing with depression a long time. Found that testosterone and prozac have helped. The testosterone helped so much that I'm reducing the prozac.

    The Paleo diet, I'm sure, has given the whole thing a big boost. I suspect especially the cutting out of grains, bread and dairy has been of most help.

    Hoping in the end to get off as many meds as possible. It's one of the goals.

    I've tried GABA Calm (except mint flavored) and it only works for episodes, not general anxiety, and leaves me rather "blah" afterwards. Which is preferable to self-destructive behavior, but it's kind of like how I would feel after a self-destructive episode anyway, so I guess that connection makes it not so preferable to me.

    Well the good thing about touching up the roots with bleach is that roots tend to lighten more (because the hair is "fresh") and overlapping with existing color and bleached areas will only serve to help blend the color, so I can get messy. I just have to work fast so my scalp doesn't burst into flames. Fortunately, with going no-poo, my scalp is much better protected by natural oils. When I bleached a couple of weeks ago, it was itchy, but not nearly as awful as I remember it being in the past.

    I wish you the best of luck! I went off Lexapro (similar to Prozac, which I've been on before too) after going primal. It wasn't easy, but 5-HTP helped a bit. Now Tryptophan is what's working for me. It's great that you were able to find a hormonal link in your depression. I'm sure continued healthy eating will help stabilize things for you.

    Welcome to namelsswonder's place, FHandC. Make yourself at home. She's running low on snacks in here, but I've told her to get some more.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    Ok. I'll give you a brief run down of my trials:
    lexapro and a few others I can't remember- euphoric for a day, normal for a week, depressed again by week 2.
    Welbutrin- euphoric for a day, worked well for a couple months, then made me more suicidal than I was without the drugs. Went cold turkey on that one.
    Citalopram- didn't do a damn thing
    GABA- helped a little with the suicidal, but didn't do a thing for the depression tiself
    5-HTP- same as the GABA
    5-HTP and GABA- I slept like a rock and that was it
    St. Johns Wort- Bubkis
    selenium supps in addition to my multi- went a REALLY long way to helping it
    Vit D supps + selenium- helped even more
    Finally getting the right levothyroxine dose +vit D + selenium +vit E+ eating Primal with special attention to wheat and sugar- nailed it.
