  1. Thanks for the responses I just noticed there's a Salt Therapy centre and they advertise therapy for mood disorders. I'm pretty skeptical but I wondered if there was maybe some untapped magic here. I think I'll pass. It looks like something I'd like to lick...
  2. Himalayan Salt Lamps - Has anyone used one of these as a complimentary thing? Or Salt Therapy?
  3. I eat a lot of good fat while on this diet (avocado, animal fat etc). I also have coffee with unsweetened coconut milk instead of regular dairy - I never ave sugar anyways. It helps me feel way better. I started out going well with W30 eating but lapsed at a dinner out and have had to start again. It's worth doing though.
  4. I feel like the Whole 30 is good for me in regulating my moods. I was just wondering if anyone else felt as positive as I do about it. I sometimes wonder if everything with me is psychosomatic Still, anything is worth a shot for feeling better, I reckon
  5. Ahh good point - I left that part out. The Whole 30 is a program of one month long clean-eating: http://whole30.com/whole30-program-rules/
  6. Nope. American - from Texas. She writes online regularly as The Bloggess. Here's a clip of her talking last week.
  7. It's like a memoir.. kinda.. more like a collection of disjointed thoughts Her first book, Let's Pretend This Never Happened, is more memoir-y. Both are hilarious, and disturbing all at once. I'm impressed by her bravery to be honest.
  8. In Jan - April I ate Whole 30 style to help my thyroid get under control. The bastard restrictive diet helped. But not only did it help with that, it helped with my sleep, my skin, my cyclothymia moods - particularly the deep pre-menstrual depression. Has anyone else had any success with using diet to help treat their MI? I am still taking meds - but I find the Whole 30 very helpful. I'm now trying it again because April - Oct has been a bit of a binge-fest of wine and cheese, pizza and chocolate. oops.
  9. I also love how helpful her understanding of her own MI is - because it means we can relate to her. She also references The Spoon Theory, which I love and always reminds me of Wooster.
  10. Totally enjoying Jenny Lawson's kick-arse second book, "Furiously Happy". It details her MI and her coping strategies, amidst some very funny stuff. Anybody else a fan of The Bloggess? I enjoyed her first book, "Let's Pretend This Never Happened" - although it did freak me out at times. She's honest about her MI, and has a wicked sense of humour, and a bunch of cats! Recommend.
  11. Arghhh hot weather has killed my motivation. I went to Body Balance tonight. It was good. But that's all I've done
