Good evening, Rachel, @rwinney. Thank you so much for being a bright and shining light in my day. You are so good at writing with descriptive words that say you care. The challenges you are facing appear to be hitting from every front, relentless pain, overwhelmingly drab financial issues, continuing and multiple medical conditions. And yet, what comes across is someone with a great smile and a twinkle in her eye. I want to contribute to your efforts to keep your life moving forward in a healthy and happy manner.
What I didn't realize in time was that every fall from a horse, each and every rear-end collision, every flight of steps or mountain I fell down, could not be eradicated by all of those let's fix it surgeries by well-meaning and skilled surgeons. They all came with a price…….not in dollars but in the onslaught of lifestyle restrictions.
When two of my friends asked me what I was doing for the pain in the middle of the night, with a full moon and howling coyotes out my window….I responded that I just sat on the edge of the bed and cried. They are both nurses and told me to follow them. That was five years ago and my introduction to medical cannabis.
What are you most concerned about this evening? How can I help you find the best options for you? I would like to start by unequivocally stating that I am not going through my life high. The druggy feeling from Percocet or Dilaudid is much more than you ever need to feel from any of the three best medical cannabis products, tinctures, topicals and with caution, vaping oils.
Perhaps it might be possible for you to tell me about your pain over a 24 hr period. Have you categorized it in any way? Do you have numbness, tingles or needle-like pricks anywhere in your body? Do you have electrical zaps in your body at 5:30 a.m.? Do you ever have a feeling that there is a fire right beneath your skin over your abdomen? How else would you describe the location, type, and level of your pain?
Have a peaceful sleep tonight. Chris
