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.
Yesterday I read a post here that really reminded me of how some of us are socialized to put other people's feelings and needs above our own, to the point where we don't feel entitled to our own important feelings. Some of this is about being raised female, but I know that men who have been abused also lose that sense of being entitled to their own feelings, needs and boundaries.This morning...
I know there are people here who have it worse but this is me and my situation.... So when we found out about my daughter being abused by my ...father... we reported it in TN where we lived because it had happened there but we also reported it in two different counties in OH because abuse happened there as well. Well through the whole process we were told that he would be charged in all three...
