I like to feel my feels. Being numb is a terrible feeling. People die and you can't shed a tear. Something amazing happens and not a shred of joy passes through.. But its so numb you just don't care.. I got tired of it and now One of the things I love so much about these oils is they help lessen my overwhelming sadness and makes it easier to go out in social situations. It does so much for me emotionally with out making me numb like the pills do.. I can cry when I need to. I can laugh when I want to. I can quiet my emotional monsters with out being weighed down by medication.
