St. John's Wort

6 weeks ago, I decided to start using up the bottle of St. John's Wort my grandfather had bought a while back. After a month, I found I was sleeping extremely well, waking up at 5-5:30 in the morning, eager to go to work. I was often the first person in the office. My appetite had nearly disappeared, and I was losing weight like crazy.

Then I ran out of pills. I wasn't sure if it was the St. John's Wort that was causing those effects, so I tried doing without it. After 2 weeks, I'm tired, irritable, and my weight seems to be creeping back up.

So this morning I bought a couple more bottles (two bottles of 60 caplets for $4.50 at Albertsons). It takes a while for St. John's Wort to build up in the system, so it'll probably be at least a couple weeks before I start to see the results.
