The Glamorous Writing Life: Drugs, Unhealth, and Not Drugs

There’s something I’ve beep shying away from posting publicly about. I dunno, but I kinda feel like if I mention it in public, it gives it more credence or tangibility or something, plus I’m hyperaware that I might be overreacting or experiencing a hypochondriac medical-intern effect. But then, what’s a blog for if not for over-sharing every now and again?

Basically, I’ve felt for a while now that I’ve been losing my words. Beyond a motivation or story flow issue, I feel like I’m perpetually groping to communicate anything. Frustrating beyond belief, yes. And also utterly terrifying.

Neurotransmitters?
I've been having similar strangeness with difficulty finding words. A bother when I pride myself on having an excellent vocabulary, although I'm not a professional writer. After reading The Mood Cure, my mother has been recommending dietary changes to increase neurotransmitters. You could also talk with her directly: http://www.healerpriest.net/home/physical-issues/i-dont-feel-good/

Re: Neurotransmitters?
While I'm a believer in the "eat healthy and exercise" philosophy for wellness, I'm generally pretty skeptical of miracle diet cures. Plus, I'm a vegetarian and have been since I was 13. It's an ethical decision, one I'm not going to change, which limits the applicability and practicality of most special diets.

I'm veggie too!
I haven't read it, but I'm also assuming that the diet isn't about meat vs. vegetarian, since what it's attempting to fix is spread through the population at large rather than limited to just us. Not to mention, we can get plenty of amino acids from other places.
