I have been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder (just so you know where i’m coming from) and I would like to share some of the experiences I had while taking whey powder as a supplement.
Backstory: I used to hate going outside, mainly because I thought people were looking at me and judging me. The other reason was because I thought I could feel peoples energy fields and every time somebody would walk past I thought I could feel that energy and I didn’t like that.
Some of my other problems were: anxiety, mood swings and insomnia.
Taking whey powder came about, I think, because I was just into taking different supplements that might help me to function more easily.
The brand I first bought (and have mostly stuck with) is maxi muscle and the next day after taking a dose I noticed that I felt less paranoid about whether people were judging me or looking at me and significantly less anxious.
I used whey for a long time with good results.
Since then I have been sectioned and been put on meds so I’m not saying that whey is an amazing cure but I thought and still think that it helped quite a lot.
If you do try whey powder for yourself, make sure it’s a good brand! because I bought some very, relatively inexpensive “amino acids” from a high street store to tide me over and they were really awful and just put me in a rotten mood.
Does anyone else have any good/bad/indifferent experiences with whey powder?
PS I’m off meds for now
