Was tired and slightly irritable all the way back home. After eating some food and a nap, I started feeling much better. In general, I'm still okay. I realized last night that for some reason I was feeling really happy---and this almost against my will, since I was kind of annoyed about something at the same time. This bizarrely happy feeling (maybe it's just what other people would call "normal"......it's been a long time since I was there) has hit me on a number of other occasions recently too. (Not today, but traveling is stressful for me. I'm doing fairly well, considering.) It's got to be either the Famvir or the large amount of ImmunoPro Rx that I've been taking that's doing this. Some would vote for the ImmunoPro (since supposedly it has a positive effect on dopamine), but I don't remember having an effect like this when I've taken similar quantities for extended periods of time in the past. If it turned out to be the Famvir though, that would be a big surprise. I was hoping for mental and/or physical improvement. The idea that I might get _emotional_ improvement never even entered my mind. But there's no reason why depression etc. couldn't be caused by viruses. The stuff I take for my mood problems---Lamictal, St. Johns Wort, DLPA, l-theanine---has been pretty successful, but conceivably it's just covering up an underlying problem that's partially caused by a virus. It will be interesting to see if this odd effect I've been having continues into the future.
