Post of The Month (August)

Meggles is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"my recent post and a comment from another user has made me realise that self care is so important.

I wanted to start a thread in the Health and Wellbeing section of the boards about self care.

Self care is provided by you, for you

I know a lot of us are struggling at the moment with different aspects of our own lives, and sometimes we get so lost in these we forget to take time for ourselves. This tread is, a Reminder to you to take time out for yourself during the difficult times.

down in the comments I would really love for people to share ideas and tips about self- care. to remind ourselves and others in the community.

My way of self care when i recognise ( or someone recognises i have neglected myself) is:

Take a walk and admire whats around me ( take as long as needed)
treat myself to a bath with a bathbomb and bubbles ( bubbles are important)
make a hot drink and just sit down with a film.

Please feel free to share your ideas!

The Mix have a guide to self-care which you can find here."

      Not sure if this guy was banned for this post or another, but I'll just add this in case anyone reads it and believes it.

      The original post is nonsense. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter. Ecstasy is MDMA, not dopamine. MDMA works mainly through serotonin (another neurotransmitter). Cocaine works through the dopaminergic system, but dopamine itself cannot be taken recreationally (it is however used to treat Parkinson's disease).

        Isn't l-dopa (I cant remember the correct spelling) actually a dopamine activator rather than actually giving you dopamine? In that it either makes the body produce more, or acts like MDMA but just on the dopamine receptors.

          L-dopa is a precursor for dopamine, and is coverted to dopamine after it enters the brain. Apparently L-dopa may be psychoactive, but I've never heard of it used recreationally. The side effects (tremor/dyskinesias) in patients are quite bad at high doses.

            Just a few things I remembered from a chemistry lecture (hope I don't fuck it up, I'm writing it down from what I remembered) in layman terms.

            Dopmaine cannot be administered to treat Pakinson's Disease, because it cannot pass the blood-brain barrier, because it carries a positive charge on the amino group. L-Dopa, which has a carboxyl group too can pass the blood-brain barrier because it is uncharged in total (carboxylate carries a negative charge). The carboxyl group will be removed in the brain (decarboxylates, ergo goes off as CO2) and voila there you have your Dopamine.
