See stress treatments, at ezy build, below, in section 42. A certain level of stress is unavoidable, in modern society, so it is a good idea to develop effective coping methods. Light to moderate daily exercise helps fight stress. For some people, it helps to visualise a quiet, relaxing scene (imagine, as vividly as you can, that you are on a tropical beach, reclining comfortably; you luxuriate, as the the sun warms you, and a gentle breeze caresses your skin lightly, inhaling the tangy, sea scented, salt laden spray from the sparkling, translucent, aqua waves, crashing on the white, coral beach sand, and feeling the hot sand slip through your fingers in one hand, sipping your favorite drink with the other; all the while, the seagulls call, swoop and cavort playfully overhead in a cloudless, azure sky: you feel just like one of them, free to soar and cartwheel, or just glide in the moist, heavy air, and that this moment will last forever ... ).

Take 4 Omega 3 fish oil supplements, daily: (certified free of mercury) it is best if consumed with an antioxidant, such as an orange, or grapefruit, or their FRESHLY SQUEEZED juice. If vitamin E is added, it should be certified as being 100% from natural sources, or it may be synthetic: avoid it. The supplement DHEA is thought to counter the stress hormone, Cortisol. Ginseng & Lady's Slipper are recommended herbal remedies: see section 55, at ezy build, below. Practise daily, one of the relaxation techniques on pages 2, 11, 2c, or 2i; whichever works best for you, but the mindfulness breathing for 15 - 20 mns is ideal, although the progressive muscle relaxation can be learned quickly, and takes only several minutes, if pressed for time.

Repeat: "I feel calm" and/or "I can handle this." Employ the EFT version for use in public, for which you can reasonably claim that you have a headache, as you massage/tap your temples, but it may be advisable to restrict yourself to subvocalising (saying it to yourself, in your mind, not aloud). Section 53, and pages 2, 2.q and 2.o refer. "Even though I sometimes suffer from stress, I deeply and completely accept myself". A variant of EMDR: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy, which has been used successfully for those people suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, insomnia, and anxiety, is shown in section 42, on page i, at I have found that the 2 - 3 minutes spent using the EMDR markedly reduces distractions to the relaxation process, and is well worthwhile. You can also multitask, using the gazing technique, as you walk/jog or exercise, by focusing on a distant object, or just focus awareness on how each step feels, noting any thoughts which flash across your mind, without pursuing any particular train of thought, just gently redirect your focus to the task at hand.
For you, or others: A massage (at least neck and shoulders) with jasmine, lavender, juniper, and/or bergamot, or German chamomile essential oils added to the massage oil, and to a warm bath, preferably beforehand, to help make any tension knots and muscles more pliant (they may only want, say, a juniper and/or bergamot and/or sandalwood mix: check first). I am aware of advice that strong heat, applied to essential oils can damage them, and so I would not use a diffuser. Also consider anise, basil, bay, eucalyptus, peppermint, rose, or thyme. Place some pieces of rock salt in a small vial, then add a few drops of the oil of your choice (the rock salt absorbs the oil and is less risky to carry around than a bottle of oil). Open the vial and breathe in the scent whenever you need a quick stress release.

Rolling 6 times in one month?
hat emotionless feeling is from all the stress ecstasy puts on your adrenals, and when your hormones are out of balance, mostly from low cortisol.
I would try finding hydrocortisone. And yes b12 and b complex can help, and same with vitamin C. Avoid simple carbs, because those further stress the adrenals. The American diet already puts loads of stress and burden on your adrenals, ecstasy just makes everything worse. A study was done and those under the influence of ecstasy had an increase of 800% cortisol increase...
That is an insane amount of cortisol that NEEDS to be release from the immense amount of stress put on your adrenals by ecstasy. Cortisol increases to buffer the damaging effects of stress. Your adrenals become fatigued because they can't keep up. Look up adrenal fatigue.
This really should help your problem. Good luck. There needs to be more awareness of how amphetamines and ecstasy can be extremely stressful on the body and adrenals.
Did you know april is autism awareness month ?
YES .. very aware of Autism Awareness Month.
YES ... I am the Long Term Single Parent (FINALLY an Empty-Nesting Single Retiree) who raised HER TWO Children with Disabilities (including a child with Asperger's Syndrome -- High Functioning Autism) ALONE -- only responsible parent, only income.
It was definitely hard -- much harder than anything I could ever imagine -- and my child was very intelligent, creative, and yes, it was SO DIFFICULT to try to explain to others (and deal with the problems of nasty people who just did not understand the symptoms) what Autism Spectrum is.
I DID SACRIFICE everything -- my needs, my desires, anything at all that I was interested in or wanted to do to RAISE my children. I stood up and fought to have my children included in after school and community activities. I took and stood there while ignorant adults SCREAMED various nasty things at me because they did NOT understand. I was the one who rushed through and skipped meals so that I would make sure I could finish my Grocery or other shopping BEFORE I would pick up the children after school/care. I was the ONE who advocated for their special needs at their schools and everywhere else. I was the one who did EVERYTHING -- from Medical Care -- Appointments, etc -- and even had work-arounds in place when something 'happened' to cause the children to have 'difficulties' during the day.
I now CHERISH my ALONENESS -- for I certainly deserve to enjoy that time right now ... it was high time to CARE for the one FORGOTTEN -- ME ----
And that means a bit of pampering, to relax, to de-stress, and to let go (meaning ... that at my age (and I was an older parent when I had them both) I needed to start thinking in terms of the fact that I won't always be there in their lives ... so they needed to learn independent living skills as well).
