> "Normal", who me?? ;) Ok, thanks, I won't worry about it then.
Normal is relative, and I ain't got no normal relatives. ;-)
No, no worries.

> > Undermethylation goes along with oxidative stress, in my opinion, so I would support choline supps, but, I would recommend that soya lecithin is the source, rather than choline per se. Every time a supp is tried, it should be seen as an experiment to determine how *you* respond to the substance. I've seen far too many paradoxical responses (the opposite of what is expected) to say that there is a blanket answer, a simple rule to follow. That's where I have problems with Pfeiffer, Walsh, et al.
> Aside from that choline/inositol (250mg of each) combo I've been taking, I've also taken lecithin quite often. Not sure if it's helped or hurt. I really need to separate these things in my experimentation, I know, but have just been desperate to get functional. So far, despite the confusion, it's been working. I've been taking a tax preparer's class since Sept 7 and have made it through and with a good grade too. That is a real accomplishment for me.
Way to go!

Methinks there is no such thing as coincidence. You be given a chance to take things in stride, eh?

My pleasure. Truly.
> Btw, what do you think of the "don't take Vit C within 2 hours of B12" business?
I can't for the life of me imagine a reason why. Do you eat meat and veggies together? Vitamin C and B-12 together, ya know?
B-12 is stored, anyway. They're going to be together if you *ever* ingest vitamin C.
Just my opinionated reply.
