It was when I first started primary school that I think it became obvious that I wasn’t fitting in with everyone else. I spent a lot of time alone in the playground but looking back I don’t think I wanted to mix with the other kids, I was completely oblivious to everything.
It wasn’t long before there was concern at school because the other kids were starting to learn to read but I wasn’t, and my attempts at writing were rubbish. I also couldn’t carry out simple tasks or follow instructions. From my perspective, I just wasn’t interested. I lived in a dream world where I was detached from everything and everyone and didn’t really care what their expectations were. I hated school.
After three years at primary school I was taken out of school by my mum. She did it because the school kept saying I had problems and they wanted me to see a psychologist but my mum thought I just needed a break.
To begin with it was quite cool being taught at home and it must have had a positive effect on me because I actually learned to read. However, eventually it just got boring and so I said I wanted to go back to school but not to the same one.
I returned to a different school and things were ok for a while but once again it was suggested that I see a psychologist. This time my mum agreed. The psychologist’s report more or less said that I had a learning disorder connected with writing and that when it came to exam time I would struggle without a scribe to write the answers for me.
The psychologist did note that my reading was excellent. In fact, the tests carried out showed that my reading age was beyond what the test covered but the disparity between my reading skills and my writing skills indicated that there was something wrong.
Nothing much happened after that really, I just continued with school, muddling along as best I could and then I moved to secondary school. Things seemed to get slightly better to start with, probably because there was more freedom and variety, I felt more stimulated and specifically, I didn’t have to put up with the same teacher for a whole day.
I managed to conform well enough to fit in, of sorts. It was around third year in secondary school that I felt things were getting really bad though as I had just started my Standard Grade English course and it wasn’t going well at all. It was then that I first took EPA oil because my mum thought it might help. I never really gave it much thought and it wasn’t long before I just stopped taking it. I don’t know why really, I guess I just forgot.
After a while I noticed that things were getting worse. My concentration was real bad and I was struggling even more at school, particularly with language subjects. My moods were terrible and I felt angry and sad at the same time and didn’t know why. I just couldn’t be bothered with getting up in the morning and going to school for another day of hassle. I was always getting into trouble for being late and was absent a lot. I just wanted to leave.
Then one day a few months ago I was on the internet and randomly came across some information on pure EPA fish oil. It sounded a bit too good to be true but something attracted me to it and on the spur of the moment I ordered myself a bottle using my new bank card. I suppose I also thought it was cool that I could buy stuff off the internet with it. The EPA oil arrived the very next day and I started taking the capsules there and then.
The first thing I noticed was that I wanted to sleep a lot. This settled down quite quickly and I found I needed less sleep but I was enjoying a better quality of sleep. I know it sounds strange, but I was also sure that I could feel a physical difference in my brain but I don’t really know if that was my imagination or not. When I told mum she just laughed.
What I do know is that before too long I felt so much better in myself and so I panicked when the bottle of fish oil started to run out sooner than I expected and I had no money in my bank to buy more. I discovered that my big sister had been nicking my fish oil capsules so mum bought some more for us both. I really didn’t want to be without.
My moods were calmer and I found it easier to do what needed to be done and would even say I felt happy. The weirdest thing was I started to really enjoy school and got into trouble for laughing instead of being late but I could cope with that.
I know that it was the fish oil that helped me achieve high grades in my most recent exams, and funnily enough I got my best grades in… guess what? English…. oh yeah… and two other languages – French and German.
I connect the positive changes with the high strength fish oil. That fish oil has definitely changed my life. It helps me think more clearly, my concentration has improved dramatically and now I don’t feel as though I’m out of sync with the rest of the kids at school. I feel like a whole new person, still me of course, just a more efficient version of me.
I would recommend to everyone that they start taking fish oil and I believe it would be VERY interesting to see what would happen if everyone actually did. I even imagine that the world might be a better place. The difference it has made to my life in such a short time is amazing. I am just so glad that I came across the information on EPA fish oil and that I actually bought it. I think my life would be very different today if I hadn’t discovered what it could do for me.
Now at sixteen I’m excited about the future. I’m sitting five higher exams this year and I’m not worried at all and I intend to go on to university to study languages as I want to travel and see the world and experience other cultures. Life is good, real good and I really believe I have the fish oil to thank for that. Actually, come to think of it my sister’s doing pretty good too.
I don’t know if you have noticed this with my last order, but I am now at University. The high EPA content from this company’s fish oil drastically helped me with my studies in high school, I went from the bottom of the class in languages, to the top of the class, and becoming one of different teachers’ favourites. My English and writing skills improved drastically also. I have been told many things when I was much younger – that I would need a scribe in my exams (I did the exams alone and passed with flying colours), that I would struggle with high school work (I did fine), and that I had something wrong with me (yes, I probably did, lack of EPA and fish oil, that’s what).
I am now at the prestigious “red brick” university of Heriot Watt, studying International Business Management with German and Mandarin Chinese. And I truly believe that I have a lot of this to thank Mind1st Fish Oil for.
