Experience

I was on this for 11 years. the final two years were not good. I genuinely could not predict my mood on a daily basis – i was crying one minute, raging the next, then laughing. My periods were laughable – spotting half the month. In the end i had to come off due to circulation issues in my lower legs. I came off in March 2019 and i can safely say, it has been the best thing I’ve done this year.
