"Wombat also touched on some interpersonal/relationship type of benefits. All I can say is 'amen' to that. I have been better able to articulate my emotions and communicate with my husband in moments of difficulty. That was one of the first things i noticed differently, that I definitely consider a benefit that I wasn't expecting. It surprised me really."
This is definitely true with me. I became more empathetic and able to communicate feelings with my significant other like I never was able to do. Having all that bromide pushed out is probably doing wonders, and well worth all the detox pain.
