Hey RR, I love your avatar! I guess what we need to do is stop hating the cycle, and instead try to find a way to make the downward phases as short as possible? I've been feeling flat for nearly a week: feel myself coming back up now, but it's taking time. The trick is to catch yourself before you spiral downwards... Which is something I'm just learning. Also trying to look at the depression in a positive way... it only becomes depression if you try to repress it? Maybe

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."
