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.

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.
