A new blog record?

This is a fairly new blog, so I’m a bit surprised that my stats are going up, up, up so quickly…

…funny thing though; not one comment. This must be some kind of record or something. (heh)

It is curious though, and I’m not quite sure why this is; is it the combination of a radical and somewhat, mm… taboo concept of treatment, and the embarrassment and stigma of depression? Is it that we just haven’t yet considered the ramifications of a complex bio-system regarding endorphin deficiency and opiate therapy, and need some time to mull it all over?

…do we just not know enough about this stuff and don’t feel qualified to comment? Shit, how do you think I feel?    ;D

At any rate, I’ll just keep on keeping on and try to be as objective and honest as possible.

Hopefully, reading through, some might achieve the relief I’ve achieved, or at least have gotten a “eureka” moment.

    Hi… sorry it has been so long but I am reading the blog. I don’t have much to contribute as I am not educated enough surrounding this topic of opiates, the endorphin system, and related treatments/disorders. I do have a few ideas but they are like , random and I”m not confident enough to really communicate them (much, hehe). Very interesting re: growing our own poppy plants, I might consider that.

    hey, Wooo, i wouldn’t worry too much about not knowing enough to comment yet. it’s all about ideas.

    we’re all, and i mean, all, learning about the opiate system.

    i’m just trying to make all this stuff practical for me more than anything. any little thing i can do to manipulate brain chemistry is all i’m looking for, and really what this blog is about.

    I think the most important thing to remember (as I know you are well aware of this already), is that the purpose of manipulating brain chemistry should always be to help one function and be ‘an active participant’ in society. It seems to me that you are doing everything possible to make your life meaningful and to NOT hide from the real world, but rather so that you are engaged with the real world. This marks the distinction between people who try to ‘chase the dragon’ and just live in a ‘nod’ to those who effectively hide.

    Keep posting about your experiences, ideas and experiments. If other people can’t appreciate alternative treatments, that’s just a shame. Although, it’s only ‘alternative’ b/c it’s not widely accepted. Instead, less effective treatments must be endured by countless people in the mean time, save for the few educated people who are lucky enough to help themselves/explore/experiment other possibilities.

    thanks for the up-talk Gladina. yeah, motive is everything. also, i don’t know how effective this home-spun therapy would really be if i didn’t weight train, log kms on walking trails and bike commute.

    everything helps…

    i’ll keep posting; i’m curious to see where my stats will be next year. people seem to be curious about this concept.

    best…
