Sorry you got banned, but you have to be 18 to play at GC! I tried to post a response, but you got banned and the post got zapped! Here is what I wrote- Hi hon, shall we try and fix Mom's craziness? Your Mom is obviously unbalanced, although as I mother myself, I can see that you are not an easy child to deal with either! May I suggest that you get Mom a big bottle of Omega 3 (fish oil or flax seed oil). Now Omega 3 is very low in most folks diets and this can make them crazy! Here's an article and the study it is based on to fill you in- Why Omega-3s Affect Your Mood (news â€“ 2011) http://voices.yahoo.com/why-omega-3s-affect-mood-8180941.html?cat=5 Nutritional omega-3 deficiency abolishes endocannabinoid-mediated neuronal functions. (abst â€“ 2011) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21278728 Now Mom isn't going to go along with "Hey Mom, I think you are nuts, take these pills for two months and let's see if you get saner!", so you need another reason for her to take them! Fortunately Omega 3 is good stuff that helps a LOT of physical conditions! Since 1 out of every 8 women get breast cancer, and a low level of Omega 3 is a risk factor for breast cancer, all you have to do is show her the articles! Most women are scared witless of breast cancer (look at Angelina Jolie's story!), so it shouldn't be too hard to convince her. These should be enough to do it! Breast Cancer Risk Lowered by Fish Oil, Study Says http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/OnCall/breast-cancer-fish-oil-omega-fatty-acids-reduce/story?id=11112520#.Uaa6HpxhX5M Omega-3's Reduce Your Risk of Breast Cancer http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/07/27/omega3s-reduce-your-risk-of-breast-cancer.aspx Omega-3 fats demonstrate ability to slow or stop breast cancer proliferation http://www.naturalnews.com/040351_breast_cancer_omega_3_healthy_fats.html#ixzz2UjuVE7Bu Diet Rich in Omega-3â€²s Found to Inhibit Breast Cancer Tumor Growth by 30% http://naturalsociety.com/diet-rich-omega-3s-inhibit-breast-cancer-tumor-growth-30-percent/#ixzz2UjujIDo7 Omega 3 isn't a quick fix- it takes at least a month to work, sometime two months! But is does lift a person's mood and straightens out their head! From what you've said about your Mom, she NEEDS Omega 3 ASAP! How Long Before Fish Oil Works on Depression to Lift Your Mood? http://ezinearticles.com/?How-Long-Before-Fish-Oil-Works-on-Depression-to-Lift-Your-Mood?&id=4229948 Deficiency of Dietary Omega-3 May Explain Depressive Behaviors (news - 2011) http://www.thefreelibrary.com/Deficiency+of+Dietary+Omega-3+May+Explain+Depressive+Behaviors.-a0248155576 I would suggest that you take some, too! But not for any of the above reasons! (you aren't crazy, you are just being a teen!) Going back to that first study, "Nutritional omega-3 deficiency abolishes endocannabinoid-mediated neuronal functions", it tells how you need Omega 3 to make working CB1 receptors. CB1 receptors in your brain are what get activated to get you high on pot! If your Mom's CB receptors are messed up, yours are likely messed up, too! So you are NOT getting your maximum high out of your pot! The broken receptors are the cause your Mom's erratic behavior (hers have been messed up way longer than yours, so she's worse off), also cut down on your high! After about a month of using Omega 3, your highs will start getting stronger and more "interesting"! Check out the bottom of my sig, hon, and send me an email. I'll send you back a PDF that will turn you into a real "Ganja Guru", if you are willing to educate yourself - and learning about your favorite subject is always fun! See you in a couple of years when you are 18! Granny ps- My Mom was bipolar, so I have a pretty good idea what you are going through!
