Dear Friends: I've been battling chronic upper and lower back pain, head/facial pain, and fibromylagia for 5 years and I've explored the whole gambit of treatment options from narcotics to physical therapy to meditation, and everything-in-between. Vicodin worked, but we all know that docs are reluctant to prescribe because of all the associated dangers. So I get it, that's a no-go. Given its a no-go & nothing else helped reduce my pain to a functionable level. I'm out of options & I'm flat-out deseperate & got a medical MJ card. I've heard a lot of good things when it comes to its uses for pain management. With an informed mind as to the pro's and con's I tried MJ today [specifics below]. I am so heartbroken to share that I found no reduction in pain at all. I felt not much of anything truth be told.
My brain knows it takes some experimenting to figure out what works best for each patient. Even still I find myself gripped by fear that not even MJ will work for me. I guess I am looking for some support & reassurance around this idea.
I'm also looking for some ideas [don't worry i'll discuss suggestions with doc, etc.] for what kind(s) of strains or whatever to try.
Based on the kind recommendation of the doc & dispensary staff, I tried 3 CBD Caps 25 mg spaced throughout the day along with 2 droppers full of high THC tincture. My pain was at a 7-8 before medications and it has remained stuck there.
Would be so so grateful for your help.
I have had many struggles going on in my head these days. The struggles from my past experience of having my mom's boyfriend take advantage of an 8 year olds naivety and then a 15 year that wanted to know if it felt the same going for her stepdad who fell for it. I think my stepdad was my fault. I wanted him to touch me. I wanted to know if it felt as good as it did was I was 8. Even if I know it...
PARENTS of survivor children need professional mental health care TOO because: 1.) You deserve a local, compassionate, objective listener who understands that disclosure is just the beginning of a very long journey for parents. You deserve to have a listener who is prepared to devote almost a whole hour every week just to hearing you out, and helping you to connect your thoughts, and helping you...
