The cellular action of meds that increase the level of serotonin help those with deficiencies return to a higher level of function. You can believe whatever you wish.

I agree with the theory that people just trade one addiction for another so how can I get addicted to exercise?

I agree with the theory that people just trade one addiction for another so how can I get addicted to exercise?

I have this 20 day rule after sex , if you have no preg. Symptoms or feel wierd you are ok. Is this a accurate theory ?

One day theory: I have a one day theory after sex that "tops" yours. Anytime one has a sexual encounter without contraception then STD's and pregnancy are natural consequences of that action. Many of these consequences have no symptoms whatsoever, but pack a long lasting "punch". At 18, it is time to be mature about your sexual activity to avoid "unwanted" consequences. ...Read more

You will eat less, be less hungry, and metabolize more calories this way. ...Read more
