I have greatly reduced stress stiffness and pain in my shoulders and the back of my neck, now only twinges and aches in my lower back rather than pain, my diagnosed 'stiff shoulder' feels so relieved from the pain its wonderful. The shoulder is still 'stiff' and I can't move my arm higher than my shoulder, but the pain isn't there. I no longer get the nightmare 'toothache in my hip' and at the moment just still experience restless leg and minor cramps.
This whole reduction in pain has helped me have more time in my life. Not having to spend hours just 'coping' with the pain and also being able to sleep a whole night for the first time in years, has given me brain space. My 'brain fog', another dreadful symptom of M.E, has also reduced and I feel I have a much clearer mind.
It's strange though ... I have no extra energy at all, but I believe I am being led on a journey where ...
i) I experience pain relief and so have new 'time' in my life
ii) I am relieved of brain fog and so have 'time' to think about what I want to do with my new time.
iii) I believe I will gain more energy and so be able to physically do a little more with my new time.
iv) I will be able to walk a little better and have the energy to do totally new things with my newly found time.
v) I'm going to get a life again!
I feel positive and hesitantly and cautiously optimistic that I have a future ahead of me.
My mental health has improved dramatically, but I believe this was mainly due to the amazing therapy I've almost completed, which I will blog about soon. The CBD oil journey though, added to my therapy at the right time, has without doubt had a bigger impact than it would have done otherwise. The two, timely being put together (not at all planned), will no doubt give me such a great head start on part 3 of my life (part 1 being childhood, part 2 being family life/marriage/children), the time for me to go off and do what I want to, no holds barred, 'matured, free and single'.
Has CBD been a factor in your life changing? I would like to hear about it if you are willing to share in the comments.
