The More Things Change...

I had reason to visit the doctor last week. This is not something I do often, or willingly, but there was a mental issue I wanted to discuss. I had watched a documentary on Adderall, the drug commonly prescribed in the USA for children with ADHD. The doc posited that it was being overprescribed to anyone that pretty much wanted … Read More

Phospha-what-now?

Phosphatidyl Serine. Nope, I don’t know how to pronounce it either, but I wanted to tell you about this somewhat miraculous supplement. My battle with depression is well documented and I have often posted or written about supplements that I have found helpful. The three that I always take to help keep my brain ticking over nicely being 5-htp, theanine … Read More

Feeling S.A.D.?

Now the clocks have gone back, tens of thousands of people in the UK will start the downhill trek toward Seasonal Affective Disorder, or S.A.D. – as apt an acronym as I have ever heard. I hate to use the word “suffer” – it makes me feel like a victim – but I do experience S.A.D. Over the years, it … Read More

I didn’t realise it was going to be when January 1st hit and, to be honest, I had no reason to think that this year would be any different to previous years, filled with lots of hard work reaching … Read More

Perfection Is An Illusion

“The grass is always greener on the other side”, “Keeping up with the Jones’” – just a couple of sayings that have been part of British lexicon for decades. Not sure when they came into being but I can imagine, when TV first came out, the desire to not be the last on the block with rabbit ears helped boost … Read More

Neural Pathways To Happiness

For most of my life, I have suffered with depressive illnesses of varying degrees resulting in anything from light grumpiness to suicidal tendencies. Whilst the former is quite tolerable, the latter is clearly not. I have documented over the years my battles, going into detail in my book.

Stop For Progress

We are all too busy. Whether it is running around doing housework, shopping, picking the kids up or working in an office 45 hours a week; launching a new business or trying to compete within a large playing field, our precious time gets more and more limited.

Having a somewhat uncooperative brain, I have spent many years investigating various supplements that may help to alter my mood or aleviate various symptoms of my mental illness. Like many that suffer with depression, a large contributory factor to it is stress and anxiety. In recent years – and with the help of Vikki – I have discovered the three … Read More
