I wanted one place where I could drop anything related - organize my thoughts and ask questions.
I found this site about a year ago but at that time I did not understand the idea behind this protocol. At one point I though I have found solution and I am healthy and then boom - my solution doesnt work anymore and I am depressed again, so depressed I have not felt for 3 years and this scared shit out of me.

Male, born in 1981, ~75kg
Usual symptoms - worst case: Depression, anhedonia, low energy all the time. Took 2-3 naps per day. No supplements work, some nootropics work sometimes (like modafinil, prl-853, phenylpiracetam) but the "hangover" usually follows next day worsening situation. Nicotine makes me sleepy. Max quality working hours per day - 2-3.
Frequent urination, mild gut issues, brain fog after food containing gluten, milk protein and probably seeds like sunflower seeds and cacao.

But in last 3 years I was feeling somehow ok - was able to work 4-5 hours per day, no motivation for extra learning or something useful.

In last 3 years I was taking every possible supplement I found useful. I have taken in various combinations almost everything that is in bornfree protocol.

In the end of 2022 I took stack containing a lot of antioxidants, nootropics and usual stuff like minerals and vitamins and I got in to manic working state. I was working/learning at least 8-10 hours per day + rest of the day playing with my child and being responsible parent in every other ways. And I loved it (if not counting some psychotic episodes).

After 2 months being in this state I took a rest from everything (Christmas), but after that I could not get in to same state with reduced stack of supplements. And then I think I got covid or something like that. But when everyone around me was having some kind of symptoms - I had nothing, just sore throat and maybe a little elevated body temp (also oura warned me about that) for week or so - max 37.5C. From the nootropics I got anxiety so I stopped them. Other supplements did not work at all - so I stopped taking them. I got more and more depressed. I was in such state for almost for half a year.

In the beging of summer I started to get my normal lower level of energy and was able to work 4-5h per day, but still no motivation for anything else. Blamed THC, blamed overused supplements etc.

So here I am, studying this protocol as it makes sense for me.

HTMA ordered. Learning about useful blood tests here in Latvia. Recently my throat infection went a little bit worse - now it feels healed, but I am feeling worse in terms of energy again.

Have not done serology tests. I don't have doctor yet who could help me, but searching for one.

At this point I have 2 suspects:
1) My home (flat in old brick/wooden house) has mold. Because of leak from my flat. Now I can see it on walls. Need to move out from there. I have options to live somewhere else time to time tho.
2) I have at least 1 or 2 dead teeth (removed root canals)
