Day 22 of 100 Day Raw Food Challenge- Anti Depressants

Today I discuss my ultimate goal of getting off of antidepressants. Man, this raw food thing is bringing out some heavy topics, isn't it??

And I didn't bother to put on makeup or cover up the zits! We're like family now, right?

Oh yeah, we got nuts coming out of the wood work in my family too, girlfriend. Is that why I like you so much? Are you my younger sister that was kidnapped at birth? Way to not eat the Reese's Peanut better cups..that was always my favorite. There is a raw version that my friend Jenny Nelson does...I'll have to get you the hook up on that delicious raw dessert treat.

Girl! We don't need drugs because we have you to watch! You crack me up! Love it.

I suffered horrible post partum after my 3rd son and it was exactly what you were talking about. I didn't give a sh*t about anything. It was brutal. My drug of choice was Wellbutrin. Worked like a charm. I've been off for 8 or 9 years now but I know exactly what you are talking about.

Keep on eating your veggies and pretty soon you'll forget you ever needed those drugs!

Thanks for the laugh. Too fun

You are so not alone on that trip! Do what you know is safe for you. I think brain health should be nurtured big time. SAD is another impact that many don't realize can be treated. I myself am a huge fan of a good ND and some quality 5-HTP if needed, yet that answer would never ever be right for just anyone. Good for you for knowing what you want and for going for it!! And congrats on the two pounds!! :o)

I loved the music playing at the end of your video, Bunny! Woo Hoo on releasing another two pounds!

Congrats, again, on being so clever to do the drive-thru for picking up your meds!! Way to go, Bunny!!!

I think you are doing so awesome, Bunny! I'm super happy that you created this video about depression and medication, too! You WILL get there, to the point where you are vibrant and glowing (even more than you already are, darling!), and you'll be giving up the meds that you are currently needing to keep your moods elevated.

What's so great about all of this, though, is that you are documenting it all!!!! There are so many people on antidepressants and they think there is no way out of it--they feel like their bodies are broken and they can never live a "normal" life without the meds. YOU, dear Bunny, are showing them the way!!!!!

I love, love, LOVE you (yep, even without makeup)! Thanks so much for sharing your journey with all of us. You RAWk!!!

Wendi
XOXOXO

I love this video! Thank you for being so honest! I've been there and tried that. The fresh raw start helped tremendously. You can talk to me about the transition anytime :) PS I have a super nutty family too. oh my. oh my. I once thought I could write a book about it and go on Oprah, but now I realize that some of my family members really should be on Jerry Springer...

I feel so blessed I ran across you on you tube and hooked up here. You are a blessing!

Hi there - I've been catching up on your blog, and just have to say that I'm on about day 35 of going totally raw myself, and the change in my mental state has been AMAZING. I was having chronic anxiety and regular panic attacks before going raw, and was seriously considering getting medication, and now I have not had ANY anxiety or a single panic attack in 4 weeks. It wouldn't even occur to me to try medication now. And if something happens that I find a bit depressing, I'm over it before I know what's happened. I'm sure you'll experience amazing things, too...

You Go Girl!! I have to know what that song clip is at the end of this video--it's sooooo relaxing.
