    The HP forums have been subjected to the more erratic of my posts long enough. Those crap prescriptions and the combinations thereof actually do much more harm than good. That junk even causes real-world implications. Aside from embarrassing myself online, they have also destroyed my short-term memory function on more than one occasion during real-world interactions.

    My beloved demented humor shall still remain, but the psychotic crap should soon (if not already) be gone. My apologies to all.

    And a side note. If you are still young enough to worry about potential future employers, insurance companies, loan companies, etc.; don't ever post anything medical about yourself or your kids online. That's the kind of world we live in now.

    I've never seen you post anything I considered psychotic or goofy or weird. Now, this is probably because I look at the rabid stupidity in the political forums from time to time, and after seeing complete waffles like Jack Moonshine in there, nothing could look crazy after that.

    I should say that, as I'm no medical professional, I wouldn't advise people to do what I've done. Anyway, I stopped taking all my psych meds a few years ago. There were several reasons I stopped, but the ones that bothered me the most were that I was becoming fat. I gained so much weight I couldn't stand to look at myself in the mirror, as I was about to get into the shower.

    .....and I became completely dependent on them to sleep. I couldn't sleep for days after I stopped taking them, but I finally got to rest again.

      I researched and wrote an article on brain foods and anti-brain foods. Interestingly, there's an active ingredient in the spice turmeric that even the National Institute of Health says is good for the brain.

      Needless to say and being a health article, it gets no traffic.

        I started incorporating turmeric into things a few years back. I started using it because it was touted as a super anti-oxidant. And then I saw something about it boosting the mood or fighting depression.

        I noticed at the grocery store it would be $4 or more for turmeric, but I could spend around $2 and get curry powder, turmeric being the number one ingredient.

        Being Indian, turmeric is in almost everything I cook and it's not because of its taste. It's added in small quantities, so I doubt taste is the reason for it being there.

          Don't washing machines sold in India have special settings for removing turmeric stains? I have several tee shirts that would benefit, lol. I am a careless cook...

            Yes but you have to circle the area of the stain to let it know which part you want yellowish colour removed from. Otherwise put in something yellow and it's out white. Yellow with black borders and the machine will get rid of the colour too.

              I reckon that post was disingenuous, lol. But the BBC never lies:

          I just want to stick up a little bit for the use of turmeric for the flavor. I have used it in cooking all of my life, long before I heard anything about it having medicinal qualities. It adds an earthy richness to rice dishes, soups, stews and many other things.

            I can hardly taste the stuff. I definitely have seen the change in color for using it though..I can relate to Will's yellow stain comment.

              If you put enough in you'll taste it. I had a cold, and a friend of mine mixed me up a medical concoction. I definitely tasted it, and not in a good way.

                Turmeric in milk with some ginger is supposed to be good for when you have a cold. I taste it in there and it's not bad. But in some other stuff, it can be bad in excess smile

    Zero energy today. Not even coffee is working. Maybe I'd work up some incentive to poke HP with a stick, but I'm fond of them at the moment. Be nice if a viable writing idea would come along. And who knows what memes are floating around my subconscious at the moment. Daily news is useless; it just induces depression day in and day out. Discipline is a pain in the neck; do chores for 10 minutes; collapse for 10 minutes; repeat.

      Well hope you feel better soon. For the last year I've been doing things which I suspect will be much more profitable in the years to come than they are now. Basically, I'm writing about baby boomers.

      Big Game of Thrones episode tonight. It's going to be one of the most watched things in the history of television. So I'm all up into that.

        I hope you are right, we are a shrinking demographic.

          This sounds really morbid and kind of creepy, but when famous people get sick, you get page views, and when they die, you may go semi-viral for a bit.

          ....so there is a strategy, but in truth I'm much more interested in my account being somewhat like an encyclopedia for my niche, and I'm attempting to do some bit of tribute to people who've meant something to me.
