Cannabis saves lives #CBD #CBG

Years ago I stopped taking prescription opioids because the negative effects of the medication outweighed it’s benefits. Yes it would help with pain but, I was a zombie all the time. Always tired, always unmotivated. I stopped and thought I’d give Medicinal Cannabis a try. THC causes me to have the most severe anxiety attacks for hours on end. I started getting a high CBD potency flower, and I began using a CBD tincture as well as using topicals. Almost 3 years later I only use a #CBGoil through Lazarus Naturals. Their products have been a literal life saver. My quality of life, and my over all health has improved so much with the help of good quality, genuine CBD and CBG oil. The only downside is that my ex husband who is an EMT for AMR in AZ, and his parents still call me a drug addict. They all treat me as if I’m an irresponsible druggie. It can be so infuriating because I know it’s not factual, and they just need stuff to make me look a certain way to people. For as Liberal as they are, when it comes to my health and wellbeing they’re pretty heartless. I’m thankful that I got a divorce. Since splitting up my health has gotten better by A LOT! #Opioids #Medication #qualityoflife #wholebodywellness

New diagnosis, Finally.

For years I was misdiagnosed with neuropathy in my left leg. On Monday I was finally diagnosed with #CRPS . Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. I already had a feeling that it was CRPS. My EMG results helped solidify the diagnosis, and that I didn’t have neuropathy. I left the office yesterday feeling empowered more than anything else. I finally can say for sure what I am dealing with and I can keep doing research to proactively keep my quality of life decent. I also have #UlcerativeColitis , and #IrritableBowelSyndromeIBS so I try to be as proactive in my care as much as I can. Proactive with my diet, my exercise, my mental health, and knowing my limits. Thankfully, I have already been doing things to help my journey with chronic pain and chronic illness. It sucks being sick and in pain 24/7. What I am most thankful for is that I have such a wonderful support system, and I am capable of advocating for myself. If I had accepted my misdiagnosis of Neuropathy years ago, I would’ve never gotten the proper testing to find my true diagnosis. I am thankful for being stubborn, and I don’t treat a Doctors word as if it is the law. I do my own research because knowledge is power, and if I don’t stand up for myself, no one else will. I am at peace, and I am happy that now I can move on from this properly, and continue my life without wondering, “what is going on with me?” #CRPSWarrior #InflammatoryBowelDiseaseIBD #thankful #peaceful #InvisibleIllness #ChronicPain #ChronicIllness #movingforward #CBGoil #cbdproducts
