There are so many choices. Seriously, who knew that pregnant women had to chose which prenatal vitamin they liked best? I was handed four boxes and told to try them out. And until I did, I was poking fun at the idea that I wouldn’t like a vitamin. Say what?
First, I checked out how much these
vitamins giant horse pills cost… Um, $30 a month for vitamins? And that’s with my insurance? Okay, okay – I get it. Baby stuff, like wedding stuff, has an premium. Cool. I’m getting in the groove.
I chose the vitamin with interesting packaging (Duet DHA Complete) and the MOST vitamins. I wanted more, more, MORE. I’ve taken two does – two days – and oh my gawd, I’m going to jump out of my skin. Damn B6 vitamins! I don’t need 50mg – no one does. I’m looking for vitamin combo with DHA (for the health benefit of eyes and brain development), but with a low B vitamin content. Maybe I just need to make my own by combining supplements?
I’m bipolar… I struggle with mania much more than depression (or at least that’s been true in the past). I don’t need anything helping me be “up.” I get there fine all by myself. Any suggestions?
