    Hmmm I've heard good things lately about selenium in the paleo blogosphere. Something worth investigating I think. I wonder if I could effectively consume Brazil nuts instead of getting a separate supplement, since they have such a high concentration compared to other food sources. How much do you take?

    I'm worried I may be having a response to Tryptophan like you did with SSRI's(working for a week or so, then kaput). I feel like that may be a good sign for the health of my brain/system, but if I truly am low in serotonin and I'm not making enough from food, that is concerning.

    I KNOW RIGHT?

    I've been having a rough time fitting in with the paleo community lately. Particularly Steve Cooksey, who has deleted my comments, repeatedly.

    Mostly it's drama, and I had to spend a LOT of time discovering my voice.

    One small round of selenium gave me a superhuman boost of awesome. Not sure what it was, but it felt good.

    Between the 2, I'm taking 270 ug. That's nearly 3 times the RDA and just enough to keep my body happy. I've thought about Brazil nuts, but never tried it.
    It's possible you may just have a deficiency in a chemical needed to make serotonin. You might look into that. I think that's what it was with me. I just didn't have enough of whatever vitamin/ mineral my body needed excess of, which is why the SSRIs only worked for a little while and the supplementation did it.

    There are so many things that contribute to serotonin production, I'm working my way down a pretend list =P Thinking back on my history with SSRI's, I think I have had a very similar response as you have had. I am sticking with the Tryptophan for now until I am absolutely sure it's not helping because it may be, maybe it's just hormones right now. St. John's Wort and SAM-e are next on the list, then probably selenium w/ vitamin E. Man what am I gonna do with all these supplements if they don't work?! I need to know more depressed people (kidding).

    I've heard good things about brazil nuts, but a good selenium supplement is only 8 dollars at gnc. I know relying on pills to cover nutrition is probably taboo here, but it seems to work very well.

    The drama will never go away, some people are too hard headed to comprehend that their macronutrient ratios might have to be different for different people.

    I can take an online troll joke, but I know when someone is REALLY trying to rustle my jimmies.

    Yep- I <3 Dexter Ok, I only saw through season two or three, but he's great. I didn't know Julia Stiles showed up. I usually like her. Hmm, if I ever go back to Netflix I might have to keep that in mind.
