Well I'm finally out of my depression mode and my cold has finally gone away. I'm highly motivated to get better. My BS have been all over the place due to my cold. Hopefully the infection is all gone and I can have a normal appetite and more energy. :)

Re: depression… Do you take fish oil? It's very good for depression … Fights artery inflammation … And helps reverse insulin resistance. I take 3000 iu two or three times a day. One of the five most important nutritional supplements that a person with diabetes can take. Jim
PS … SAMe is very good for depression, too.

What is SAMe? What would you say are the other 4 important supplements?

1. A good quality multiple. 2. Omega-3 (6-9 gr daily). 3. Vitamin D (5,000 iu daily) — 7,000 for Afro-Americans and those over 70. 4. Magnesium (to bowel tolerance).
5. CoQ10 (no more than 300 mg; mornings because it can be energizing).

S-adenosylmethionine — good for osteoarthritis and depression. Tons about it online.

I took SAM-e for a little while for mood swings. Happy pills!

A bit expensive, but they do work. And none of the side effects of antidepressant drugs. Jim H

I had tried SAMe for a while and found it to not be worth it. I was depressed and nothing seemed to work.

I don't understand depression at all. I suffered for years with dark depression it was low grade for years and it seems to be gone now. I never got treatment. I hope ypurs goes away. Colds have to be the most annoying illness. Glad to hear that yours is gone.
