Hi Peter!

Thank you, you beat me to it! I believe that serotonin levels in your body are just as critical in trying to maintain our health. Maintaining our gut will in turn link up to a healthier brain!

Nancy, thank you for un update on Rusty, I will continue to keep him in my prayers. I hope you enjoyed your time with your family & I hope we get to catch up someday soon.

Hi Tea

Brilliant post sister. "Thank you." I would like to add that serotonin is another hormone that works alongside dopamine in the brain. And interestingly, they are both made in the gut. Go figure!

That said, I like to charaterze that they work together like this. Dopamine fuels feelings of joy and happiness. But serotonin fuels feelings of initiative or "being engaged." So interestingly enough, a person can actually be happy but still "immobile" or keep themselves alone with a serotonin deficiency. Or a person can be active and busy, yet "depressed" with a dopamine efficiency.

I think it is therefor very helpful to understand this relationship between these two hormones so we can better navigate through the emotional side of recovery. They certainly must each be in balance and working together for us to be emotionally healthy and well rounded!

"Strength and love"

Hey Tea!
Hope you doing good. Thanks for the information, I have to see my doctor in a few weeks and will talk to her about this.

I have got so far and seem to be at a standstill. But you know how that makes us feel.

Have you heard from Robin lately? The last time I talked to her she sounded good thankful she is getting better.

I am beginning to think change is good for us but in my case I have to think about Rusty. He has eye test tomorrow and hopefully surgery next week.

Talk later.
Love you your sister in Christ.
