Wow – thanks for the great info, JP! I’ve been growing my own herbs for the first time this summer with great success. The spearmint and sage seem to be doing the best, so I’ve been making large amounts of tea out of them. Been drinking quite a bit of both for about 6 weeks now. On a whim, I decided to google positive and negative aspects of ingesting these herbs and found that Sage contains large levels of thujone and should not be ingested in large quantities – yikes! And now I’ve learned from you that spearmint in large quantities may be shrinking my boys and lowering my libido – double yikes!! Who knew? What a shame, as I really enjoyed both as an ‘all day’ beverage. Oh well. Say, do you have any info on French Tarragon as a tea preparation? I really like having fresh herbal beverage to take the place of all the soda I was drinking.
Stress, talking & understanding and paperwork make me more tired than anything else. I need simple clear systems and NO complexity like contracts (which scare me) for cell phone, insurence, flat rentals and so on. I haven't got a smart phone because no idea how to use one or which to get. Used PCs for years before injury but now totally left behind with them and all technology, music and everything. I feel so left out. Is there much tech out there for us with milder brain injury? If so how can we access it (if no money) and be taught to use it? People with more obvious mobility problems sometimes (certainly not always sadly) appear to get far more recognition and help than us, it feels very unfair.
