@rwinney, those are helpful. I would be very hesitant about extra strength dosages. I don’t think the pain from SFN requires those levels. The times seem pretty accurate. Oral mucosal is my preferred distribution method. Find joy today. Chris

@albiet, Good evening. Thanks for your response. I wanted to show how you can totally "manage" the SFN pain during the day with a natural medicine without side effects, that simply relieves symptom pain.

We know that at this point there is no cure for SFN, so we are not trying to treat anything…. just mask the pain so that we have the best quality of life possible.

When I read your current list of medications, it is overwhelming. And even with medical cannabis, you may still need to address the anxiety and depression that most of us try to conquer. I take Cymbalta in the morning to help my anxiety enhanced recent memory issues. It has made a huge difference in how I approach my day……sort of "Que sera, sera." Sleep peacefully, Chris

1 day ago · using CBD oil to help withdraw from Serapax (Benzo) in Depression & Anxiety

@lisalucier, and others with questions about CBD. Here are the never, never, rules for CBD. And I am only speaking of medical cannabis with THC. 1. Don't use any medical cannabis on an empty tummy. 2. Don't mix medical cannabis with alcohol including right before and right after. There are no real side effects of CBD. The best results and pain relief are when THC is used in concert with CBD. Right now there is almost a panacea of CBD products on the market that are supposed to fix everything.

To your other issue…regulation. I am an advocate of total legalization because it ensures that the products you purchase from a licensed dispensary have been through a standardized regulation process. I was in California during the introduction of recreational products. It was a mixed-up world for months. The implementation of regulations required many products to be returned more than once for better labeling or consistent amounts of ingredients.

4 days ago · Have you had plastic surgery to help improve vision? in Eye Conditions

@hopeful33250, It is wonderful of you to add this discussion for Connect members. I have had this surgery for both the upper eyelid and the extra tissue right below the eye. I am thrilled with the results. I was placed under anesthesia because of some other surgery I was having at the same time. I went home after a few hours and fell in love with frozen peas to go with the antibiotics.

My life partner had a more definitive need. He had limited vision. You can see the difference in these pictures. In the before picture on the left you can see how the upper eyelid sort of doubles down over the eye and creates a narrow opening. The tissue under the eye is pretty bulbous and baggy. After the surgery, his eyelids are definitive and look the same on top and bottom and on both the right and left sides.

What was immediately noticeable was his need for stronger sunglasses since more light was getting in. His best outcome was simply that he could see more. He too fell in love with frozen peas to prevent swelling. Three days after the surgery we attended an art show opening……there was no bruising. The stigma attached to plastic surgery is real. The other question he got was "Oh, have you had some work done on your eyes?" He even had to get a new Passport photo……and shhhhhh…..he looked at least five years younger. I am happy to shed some light for anyone who wants more details.

Be safe and protected tonight and free of suffering tomorrow. Chris
