That actually does sound true. I get paranoid and then I end up going on yahoo answers and asking and once I get about five or six answers from different people the symptoms just go away and I feel better. I can't go to a therapist, though, because it costs too much money.
I enjoy anime adaptations more, just because its less expensive that way (hehe) but I do read/have read a couple. I did binge-read The Walking Dead over the summer. But usually I'm a Batman/Harley Quinn, Sailor Moon, Yugioh girl. (The latter two are concluded series though, so nothing new with those.)
Depends. For day to day hygiene it's shower. If I want to relax, then a bath and lavender epsom salts! Did that just the other night after having a massive breakdown -- really helped with my migraine I'd gotten from crying, and helped settle me down so I could sleep.
I have never heard of this before. I am not sure that it is available here as a supplement. I agree with Azelma on her point, that not all herbals are as effective as Western ,medicine, but they may have fewer side effects overall. The problem with herbals though is that the doses aren't as regulated as with Western medicine. Of course, there can be many counterfeits thrown in with modern meds.
