I’m feeling brand new

Since early June my friend and partner @NurseBev has been on a consistent program we are calling Weed for Wellness. Besides regular lifts for her Glaucoma, she has been taking CBD and other supplements as part of her regimen. For over 25 years as a working single mom, @NurseBev suffered from severe sleep apnea in which suffers wake many times during the night. This condition resulting in deficits in both deep restorative sleep (stage 4) and REM sleep (ascendiong stage 1). It is my strong belief that over time her sleep apnea was the trigger for many of @NurseBev’s other conditions. We added a Breathe Right strip @ bedtime and the results have been nother short of amaxing. See for yourself in the two pics below. Once the sleep issue was resoloved the CBD, supplements and lifestyle change did the rest.

I’m back and I want everyone to know that I feel brand new and I want everyone to feel this good!

I wish you could have seen me six months ago or even two months ago and then now.  The difference is amazing  For years I have suffered from a number of chronic conditions including:

  • glaucoma
  • cataracts
  • fibromyalgia
  • sciatica
  • sleep apnea
  • narcolepsy
  • depression

In addition I have had several life threatening issues including:

  • two heart attacks within 3 months of each other
  • 3 spine surgeries
  • a brain aneurysm (surgically repaired)

I couldn’t walk a half block without a hydrocodone (10/325) flexural 10mg and 400-600 mg of ibuprofen. I could barely function. I have 1 grandchild and whenever we went out to play all I could do was sit and watch her instead of being able to play with her.

I haven’t had any opiate pain meds or any meds since Dec ’15,  I was penalized by a new pain management doctor for smoking weed and since I’m not one to go quietly into the night you might say, I chose to resign as his patient. After that all I had was my smoke. it helped with everything but I felt as if I was losing my life force.

Starting six weeks ago everything changed, I started:

  • Taking CBDs,along with better quality smoke
  • Shiff’s 4in1 Krill/Fish Oil
  • Centrum 50+ Vision
  • Exercising 5 min 3x week on a glider
  • Walking my dog Daizee up and down the stairs 4X per day
  • Began eating more fresh fruits and vegetables

Oh yes I now use breathe right strips (I had the sleep apnea repair surgery, after being informed that I had one of the worst case from a 40 yr. practicing anesthesiologist,) They removed everything except my lymph nodes. and the snoring had gotten really bad again.

But now I feel brand new!

Now don’t get me wrong, I still have all my conditions but now I’m better equipped to deal with them and not only have I noticed the differences but so have my family and friends. Even the people I sometimes play bingo with have noticed. Now I’m constantly smiling, laughing and happy. I can walk around Wally world and push the cart as opposed to leaning on it,

Now there’s a pep in my step that I haven’t had in years, my glaucoma is still stable the pressure is still the same as 10 years ago, except now I can read the ticker tape at the bottom of the TV channel without my 3oox reading glasses.

My hair is getting thicker again (really thin since my brain aneurysm in ’06,). Nails are growing and I. feel better internally too.

It’s like everything is getting better and better. I sleep better and mostly all night. It’s like my sleep apnea is resolving itself.

Even my dog Daizee is looking better and more energetic.

I will continue to post my progress.
