Yes, my name really is Dymphna.
I'm not a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, or therapist.
I can find you an answer and I won't blow smoke up your ass.
St. Dymphna is the Patron for brain maladies.
I'm the Enforcer.
In these epistles there are certain things difficult to understand, which the unlearned and the unstable distort,
just as they do the rest of the Scriptures also, to their own destruction.
(II Peter 3:16)

maine: SJW may look like a herb and hence "natural", but it's as serious and as strong as a real medication that comes in a pill. It's just that americans don't know much about it, nor about its side-effects. Stick to what your pdoc gives you, dude.
