Default Depression and coconut oil...huh!!!

Funny how I was reminded through a home remedies app to buy some coconut oil today. I found out coconut oil is good for depression. I'll k.i.t. on how that goes!

ive never heard of that before. i gotten coconut oil twice now. and both times i never felt a change of mood...... though now that i think about it, it smells amazing, so much of a happy smell i guess? so that could be what they mean.

Is that why pina coladas are so theraputic?

Seriously, though, there's something about just the smell of coconut that raises my spirits. I live in a constant struggle with depression (Bipolar II), and it's amazing how the smallest things that most people wouldn't even notice can make a difference for better or worse.

I love to garden, and I don't like to wear gloves. Interestingly, my psychiatrist said that there have been studies done on antidepressants in soils. Apparently a lot of depressed people like digging in dirt and getting all muddy!

This is VERY interesting as I'm going to volunteer at a public allotment tomorrow. I've been, I dunno, craving (not exactly the right word, but something like that) a bit of gardening/allotmenting for a long time now BUT it's not something I've done before (apart from a little bit of messing about in the garden at home) so how can I be craving it? It's all very strange, but I'm really looking forward to tomorrow.
It's my mum's birthday tomorrow as well, so maybe visiting the allotment in the morning will make going to her grave more bearable...
