More B12 [Jan. 26th, 2010|02:13 am]

[Tags|, ]

Fun Fact: According to my psychiatrist, selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors utilize B12 in their process, so if you're low in B12 or having difficulty absorbing it, being on SSRIs can decrease it further, increasing your feelings of fatigue and depression.

BONUS Fun Fact: LiveJournal only lets you have 1,200 tags. Huh.

(Apparently, I tried to add my 1,201st on my last post and it failed silently until I went to "edit tags" in the post itself and it rejected "B12" as a new tag with that explanatory error. Fixed by removing a couple of old tags I'd only used once & didn't really need.)

Ok, that's kind of a cool factoid (about the SSRIs), except for the irony factor, which isn't quite so fun. But still, hey, it's an easy vitamin to replace in your system. We have the technology and live in the future.

As for the tags, that's both impressive and kind of dumb on their part. Have you mentioned it to them? I mean, if they expect us to have a lifetime of words here, they're gonna have a whole lifetime of tags, too. 1200, while seemingly high, is not gonna be enough.

And thank you for the Arisia hugs. It was good to see you. Let's play sometime in February.

Yeah, irony. I apparently needed more of that in my diet too.

I'd be delighted to hang out in Feb. sometime.

so - eat more cereal? get B12 shots? get cereal(or serial) shots? Very interesting about the SSRI's - I didn't know that!

Re: B-12

I'm doing both, actually. The Doc & the Psych Doc both want me on weekly B12 shots for 8 weeks, then the Doc will test my blood again.

And I'm eating more cereal.

I think cereal shots would be weird and painful no matter how you interpret the terms.
