anything that improve my panic when i loose my way or direction

This is something that happens to me. When I started to get lost when driving (dont drive anymore) it was unnerving. I definitely felt VERY anxious. It started off subtle and lasted maybe 10 seconds. Now I am a full time passenger and am lost a good part of the time. Always asking where are we at?
My mom taught me some bio feedback techniques that help when i get feeling anxious.
I try to look for clues that might spark a memory that can help know where i am at.

I also utilize a high concentration CBD to THC product . For me a 12.5 part CBD to 1 part THC seems to help best. I have been utilizing this for ~2 years along with a couple other products for more advanced pain.
Thi also helps me with mood – staying more level – helps with the mood swings. And a big thing for me – it helps me with sleep.
Of course – w have to be very careful so we don’t interact with one of the many meds we could be on – so when you meet with a medical marijuana doctor – make sure they are not a card mill – meaning they dont really do much except say – yup you qualify. I researched and found an osteopath that was also a MMJ doctor. He spent over 2 hours with me before coming up with a proposed treatment plan. We tweaked it as time went on to find the best products for me.

Hello @estpark2

I am so sorry that you are experiencing this kind of panic. That has to be very stressful to lose your way and direction. Please see Larry's (@larryh23) post about that above.

How long ago were you diagnosed with LBD? Are there any other questions you would like to ask?
