I hate you because you always seemed to take pleasure in hurting me and you just loved to make fun of the things that I cared about. I hate that you always said horrible things about everyone, but only when their backs were turned. you're so fake and you lied all the time, for no good reason, just because you could and because you knew that everyone was too scared of you to call you on it. I hate that you had such control over me, that she always gave into you, that we had to jump whenever you looked at us. I hate you for sending us to that fucking church just to get rid of us,to that stupid place where they were all so phony and made fun of our clothes. I hate that you used to send me to the store for your cigarettes, that I had to do your housework every day after school and on weekends. I hate you for making sure that I had no life until I moved away from you. I hate you for telling people that you raised us, hate you for making me feel so inferior. I hate you for taking away my brother, we never got him back. I hate the sound of your voice, and the way you smell and your accent. most of all, I hate you because you knew, didn't you? you knew and you didn't do anything. for that, more than anything,I hope you rot in hell.

I won't even be sad when you die but I suppose I'll have to pretend to be so I won't have to explain how I really feel and why.

Rhodiola Rosea is the latest natural remedy to join the arsenal of natural anxiety and stress (stress reliever) reducers.

Rhodiola Rosea, also known as Golden Root, is a native plant of arctic Siberia. For centuries it has been used by eastern European and Asian cultures for physical endurance, work productivity, longevity, resistance to high altitude sickness, and to treat fatigue, depression, anemia, impotence, gastrointestinal ailments, infections, and nervous system disorders.

The first recorded medicinal applications of rodia riza (renamed Rhodiola Rosea) was made by the Greek physician, Dioscorides, in 77 C.E. in 'De Materia Medica'. Rhodiola Rosea has been included in official Russian medicine since 1969.

Despite its long history, the Western world has only recently become aware of the health benefits of Rhodiola Rosea. It has come to the attention of many natural health practitioners because of studies which tested its affects on combating anxiety and stress.

Rhodiola Rosea is considered an adaptogen. This means it has an overall stabilizing effect on the body without disrupting other functions. Its ability to normalize hormones may be effective for treating depression and anxiety.

Studies of Rhodiola Rosea show that it stimulates neurotransmitters and enhances their effects on the brain. This includes the ability for the brain to process serotonin which helps the body to adapt to stress.

Since adaptogens improve the body's overall ability to handle stress, it has been studied to identify it's effects on biological, chemical and physical stress.

A study was performed to test the effects of Rhodiola Rosea when stress or stress reliever is caused by intense mental work (such as final exams). Such tests concluded that using Rhodiola Rosea improved the amount and quality of work, increasing mental clarity and reducing the effects of fatigue.

The effects of Rhodiola Rosea have also been tested on stress and anxiety from both physical and emotional sources. A report by the American Botanical Council states that "Most users find that it improves their mood, energy level, and mental clarity." They also report on a study that indicated Rhodiola Rosea could increase stress tolerance while at the same time protecting the brain and heart from the physical affects of stress.

This report included details of studies which highlight the overall health benefits of Rhodiola Rosea.

The generally recommended dose is 200-600mg/day. The active properties should be a minimum 0.8 percent salidroside and 3 percent rosavin.

It is important for consumers to know that Rhodiola may be sold using other species that do not share the properties of Rhodiola Rosea, stress reliever, or at ineffective strengths for treatment. Anyone with depression or anxiety should also check with a health professional when treating these symptoms.
