Well, the weather in Edinburgh has been ridiculously cold this week

and I have been using the coolest promotional windscreen ice-scraper I have ever encountered...

My dad's got thing's like that lying around his house too.

Did you know that "Low serotonin levels no more cause depression than low aspirin levels cause headache".

Little story about it in New Scientist.

But when you run it the other way, these SSRI drugs *do* relieve depression and anxiety problems in many cases, albeit with side effects of varying severity. (I'm not really up on the hoo-hah surrounding seroxat specifically I must admit).

True enough. I don't even know if Seroxat is an SSRI, I just assumed so. Didn't do me any harm back in the day!

I think Seroxat is a SSRI drug. Anyway, it rocks. How did Western Society ever cope without it?
