Re: St John's Wort Vs. Prozac.

Now i take prozac for anxiety and i'm not all that happy being on it due to the side effects that affect me. That's not to say they affect everyone that takes it. And yes, i understand Prozac can help a lot of people. So with that debate aside, i am considering St John's Wort. I think some people o...

Re: living on a tight budget

We're on the very same tight budget £40 - £50 per week and it is tough but do-able and I've been doing it most of my adult life so it's something I'm kind of used to and you really do become super creative! When we cook we tend to cook bulk meals we can freeze such as Lentil Soup, Middle Eastern Chi...

Re: Please help me Pagan Parents!!!

Along with putting your complaint in writing I'd contact the Pagan Federation and ask advice from them as they will know more about the legal side of things and may be able to help you approach this problem from the right direction. To be honest I feel religion of all kinds should be kept out of sch...

Re: Growth of raised beds

We're about to put in raised beds if we can find the materials cheaply enough to do it in Cornwall :?

It's just easier for both of us to manage, OH has a very bad back and I simply am not able bodied enough to bend down to do gardening at a low level.

Not exciting but we were parked up at Long Rock watching the waves (that we could see in the dark and rain :lol: ) chilling out so it's all good!

Re: What does your home smell of?

If I've been away for a few days and come home, my house smells of the sea side, kind of the smell you get when you go on holiday to the coast and first go into your apartment... if you see what I mean!

Most of the time it smells of cooking, and right now porridge and tea :)

Re: Over use of Anti depressants?
