    Do you mean turmeric as in the spice?

    Where'd you hear this from?

    Not criticising just like you I'm desperate and I can't see a spice doing any actual harm (might be wrong!).

    Would love to know if it does do anything like as I'm desperate too!

    Hope you're ok, thinking of you as always xxx

      Just looked it up online.

      Might be worth a go. What's to lose at this point eh?! (I mean that for both of us btw haha).

      I mean a lot of western or "proper" medicine has come from natural treatments really...

      Unless there's some bizarre interaction tumeric happens to have with our prescribed meds?

      I have no idea!

      Hopefully someone with some more experience/knowledge will be able to advise.

      I'm willing to try pretty much anything at this point!

    No I haven't heard anything about it helping people with depression. However, I know people who give it to their dogs who are suffering from joint problems. Apparently turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties, and I have only heard good things from my dog friends.

    My sister has been taking tumerac now for a few months. She says she has definitely noticed a difference. She suffers from depression and anxiety says she felt less anxious within a few weeks of taking tumerac. Worth trying is what I say . X

      I was that desperate I tried smoking weed the other night, it made me have a huge panic attack, scared me to death! I will literally try anything!

      Ordered those capsules on Amazon by the way xxx

      Omg that's such a coincidence!

      The other night I was just absolutely desperate, and I was seriously asking my friend about weed.

      I was told off and told I wasn't allowed which in hindsight was probably for the best!

      It's so hard when you take all the meds you are prescribed and they don't work, then drs etc judge you for looking elsewhere like weed or alcohol.

      It's like, I'm not an idiot, I get that neither weed nor alcohol is a healthy idea. But what's the alternative?

      Sit and wait for help that doesn't come?

      Sit and wait while the meds don't work?

      I think unless you've been there, in that desperate place where you're willing to try anything, you can't judge.

      I'd rather be drunk and alive than sober and suicidal.

      Maybe that's just me xxx

      Yes woulda been a bad idea, I was so scared and just wanted the feeling to stop.

      Yes I'm the same I get judged for drinking but it helps me most of the time, no it's not a solution or a long time solution but it's a quick fix at the time and I'd take that over feeling horrible!

      I constantly think about suicide, I can't help it! Xx

      Ooh god I will stay away from it!

      Poor you that sounds awful.

      I know, every time I have a drink I feel like I'm being judged, but guess what? It helps me sleep when I've been awake for days. It calms me down when I want to rip the mirrors and curtains down when in having a panic attack. It stops me getting in my car and just driving and never coming back.

      So yeah, I'm drinking too much, it isn't healthy, but it's a hell of a lot healthier than death.

      Hang in their my lovely friend.

      You know it's been nearly a year since we first started talking? And we are both still here!

      Proud of you.
