Post #158: 5-HTP

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Not liking leaving a sad post up as the last one.

So, I vented about feeling down. I opened up to friends and dig some soul cleansing. I also decided to give in to the pharmacy and I started taking stuff that seems to help. I had heard of taking 5-HTP for balancing out your serotonin levels after using Ecstasy, and I thought that perhaps that would help for when you’re simply depressed.

The effect: comments that would normally throw me into a mental tailspin now roll off me like water on a duck’s back. There’s less of an inner discomfort, and much less overthinking.

If I can gather some examples, I shall. Until then, I’ve got work to get back to.
I’ll be done my second contract in September. My new contract is all but signed, and I’ll have three months off to figure out what next to do with my life.

Goal 1. Finish getting my G driver’s licence
Goal 2. Revise my apartment to be more guest friendly
Goal 3. Jam with as many musicians as I can

I think three is enough. There’s thoughts of travel, and programming classes, but that would be overload.
