Who are you?

It’s ok to be you. It’s ok to be different, and feel differently. There is no “normal”. The more we try to fight our own nature to fit in, or to conform to someone else’s idea of how/who we should be, the more damaged we become.

Today, I saw this posted on a friend’s timeline on Facebook:

I was told today that I can only know myself through someone else, I guess I’ll never know who the F$#?k I am.

My CBD Experience. (So Far)

Lately I have been going on a lot about CBD products, and their benefits. I have tried quite a few, and have found what I think is going to be my go-to brand. I will share that with you in a moment.

More and more people are turning away from pharmaceuticals in favor of more natural methods to treat their chronic illness symptoms. One of the most popular at the moment is CBD.

Marijuana, Hemp & CBD.

For thousands of years, humans and animals alike have been using plants to help them heal. We still do. That is why we have Lavender baby bath, Chamomile Tea, Aloe in our lotions, and health food stores.

Believe it or not, we have also been using marijuana, hemp, and it’s derivatives in the US, up until about 70 yrs ago, with no issues whatsoever. Doctors were prescribing it for hundreds of years.

When you just…can’t.

I’ve been waiting for Spring. I live in New England. Right now, we are having “Second Autumn”. It’s like real Autumn, only it comes after Spring. It’s cold damp, and rainy. It is a pain inducing nightmare.

I have calls to make, emails to write, I have to go out later, and I just want to curl up in a ball, on the couch, with my dog, and a blanket.

I can’t keep my brain focused, even with my meds properly ingested this morning, and I just don’t care.

Any “normal” person would be complaining of a 8 on their pain scale, and would probably want to die. I am not normal. If the pain scale went from 1-20, instead of 1-10, I’d probably be at a 13.

I’m only sitting here writing this, to keep going. To make it through the day. To resist the urge to lie down. I really do have to go out later, it is not optional.

The one bright spot, is that something I ordered came today. I can’t tell you what it is just yet, but keep watching for updates. This is something I hope to be able to share with you all in the next few days.

Till then, carry on my warrior friends, better days are coming. ❤ J


It’s a chilly March morning in Connecticut. I woke up feeling tired, and lazy. My head still hurts, and I am a little dizzy from this inner ear thing that I have been dealing with for over a month. I decided to turn on the T.V., which I usually never do first thing.  I clicked onto Netflix, and I see the word “Heal”. I want to heal. I click it, and begin watching.

I want all of you to watch it.

One statement that really got to me is this (paraphrased):

“We have more faith in cancer’s ability to kill us, than we do in our own ability to heal ourselves.”

The human body is a miraculous thing.



Kratom: Wonder Leaf, or Deadly Crutch? A Review of “A Leaf of Faith”.

In “A Leaf of Faith”, Chris, who struggles with chronic pain, and addiction on a daily basis, delves into the Kratom debate.  His interviews with doctors, scientists, and politicians, on both sides of the debate, are thought provoking,

I have a terrible head cold, so last night, I was scrolling through Netflix, and found a documentary with an interesting name: “A Leaf of Faith”. I had no idea what it was about, it is a new release, and I saw the word “Kratom” in the description. Discussions about the use of Kratom have been popping up all over, and when something like this comes along, I have to know more.  Continue reading “Kratom: Wonder Leaf, or Deadly Crutch?
