I was taking too much chromium - Side effects of taking too much include insomnia and loss of appetite. Definitely experienced that. There is already 400mcg in my multi vitamin - may take 1 other pill when I'm feeling anxious for no more than 600 mcg per day.
So far the sp tincture is definitely working. I don't have sore breasts or cramps I normally get before my period - I should get it any day now. I had a bit of a flare up but took more of the tincture and it calmed it down considerably. We'll see what happens when my period finally gets here. But I feel good. Not depressed. My skin is looking pretty good too, save for the spots that are still healing. My skin was starting to get oily and I upped my dosage (as Hilary suggested I could do depending on my symptoms) and it took care of it immediately. I am cautiously optimistic that I found something that works.
I'm still going to do low dose accutane to get rid of the trapped sebum plugs that are all over my face. That will start mid-december. Unless something unusual happens, I probably won't update until then.
