Be careful with sustained use of St. John's Wort, something about bright
sunlight affect but can't remember the details now. There are other avenues
to explore. 12 hits, seems tiny? Be careful about assuming that the ecstasy
is the cause of your current depression. I've known people take much more
than that and nothing happened but individuals vary. Still, don't assume,
have a look around for other possible factors. Particularly as the cell
death from ecstasy is immediate but your change of mood took time. An
additive factor somewhere, extra stress etc???

And Liar 42 is right about GBH, that should be taken much more seriously ...
