As posted elsewhere on this board, I have had really good results with Deplin. My sleep patterns/habits were horrible for a very long time. I was working on establishing a routine before I started Deplin. I do wake up more alert, but usually after a full night's rest. Vitamin D supplementation has done much for my sleep patterns.
I did notice a huge increase in mental activity on Deplin and for a while I was so excited that I really didn't mind the neurological cascades of ideas and memories because it was SOOO good to have words and thoughts back. I eventually realized that although my brain was working far better than it had in years, my body and overall fitness was a total wreck.
I was depressed and debilitated for so long that getting fit and developing healthy habits is going to take some hard work. I also need to resocialize as I have lived in seclusion for a long while now. These are things I have to do for myself. I had the same knowledge about routine and habits, etc before I started taking Deplin, but I could not find the motivation or focus to make any of it happen. Because I am thinking more clearly and my moods are more stable, I can work on these things. Sometimes it is discouraging because the task can seem insurmountable, but I can manage my thoughts better, including despair. Deplin hasn't given me good judgment, a fit body and/or graceful social skills, but at least it gave me reason to HOPE that these are attainable for me!
