Did you know that in this country over 20% of women in their 40s and 50s are on some sort of #anti-depressant? I was, but not anymore. I cured my #depression by changing my #diet. http://ThinStrongHealthy.com for more information.

Today has been a wonderful day.well its a wonderful life recently. For starters i chucked the sertraline i was on in the bin, as well as my panic/anxiety tablets. I havent needed them in months. I use to fear/hate sleeping for years because id wake up breathing disturbingly fast and had experienced terrifying panic attacks. i also feared almost everyone around me and now its all changed. im more confident, feel so grateful, and im happy just being me. :') best year of my life so far
