You guys and all this talk of heat. We don’t even feel like it’s really warm yet. Seriously, it’s just a warm spring around here so far. Our foreign friends will be just fine. Besides, I’m sure they rented a car with air conditioning. Lol.
In fact, they’ll probably be so excited to be away from snow and ice that they’ll start considering a move.
Anyway, It looks as if I will be able to make the trip. We borrowed a small rv for the trip so I don’t have to sit in a car seat that long. But also, I have a product report to make and recommend to anyone dealing with pain.
Two days ago I went to see a surgeon and get a surgery date for my back. He says it’s a really easy surgery and that I’m a text book case. Should be an outpatient thing that takes about 6 hours with about 98% success rate. Scheduled for the end of June.
I have been dealing with extreme pain for 2 months. And that is another month away. Knowing that 50% of people who take narcotics for 3 months get addicted, I have been looking for a way around using them. But I have been taking a mixture of hydrocodone, tramadol, codeine, oxy, morphine, and some other stuff for 2 months.
After the appointment we happened to drive by a store called “CBD Store” and went in and got the strongest CBD oil they had. Not real cheap. But I took the recommended dose twice on Wednesday. And then took half again as much Thursday. Now it’s Friday midday.
I have not had any hydrocodone since before the CBD oil.
Now on day 3 I have only taken Ibuprofen with it.
I usually don’t believe in things with this good of a report, but I can’t argue with the facts and my own experience.
I did have a headache on Wednesday night and Thursday. It may have been getting used to the oil, or coming off the narcotics. There seem to be no other side effects at all. Except I don’t like the taste of the stuff. There is certainly no chance of getting high on this stuff. The kind I got does have the traces of THC, they say it makes it work better, but you’d probably have to drink 200 bottles of this stuff to feel any kind of high from it. It kind of reminds me of drinking coca tea in south America. Same leaves they make cocaine from, but it takes several truck loads of leaves to make a small amount of cocaine.
I am feeling more soreness in more places than I was with the narcotics. But it is minor stuff that was masked by the heavy drugs.
I have not been sleeping well for 2 months. And hydrocodone keeps me awake. This stuff let me sleep for about 16 hours Wednesday night. I guess I was making up for lost sleep. What a difference it makes getting good sleep.
Anyway, I can’t say enough about this oil stuff. So far it’s Amazing.! I don’t know if I’ll make it through the day with only ibuprofen, but I’m going to try. We’ll see how it goes.
