Hey everybody,

Over the last 7 years this forum has grown exponentially. With your help, We have created a community of Kratom enthusiasts to come together and discuss the industry. The traffic that this site has received has been exciting but also overwhelming. All the while the site grew a little out of date. Over the last few weeks we have updated the platform of the Forum as well as the face of the forum. CHECK OUT THAT NEW LOGO!!! sweet right?!


We could use your help though...
Read More...
You guessed it! This section is for general discussion that may or may not have anything to do with Kratom.

Ok, I clearly missed something important during my sabbatical from this forum. I see that Laurie is no longer a moderator. I haven’t seen her around either. Laurie are you ok? Plz lmk what major changes I missed.

Respectfully,
Dawn

Edit: It would be really nice if we could increase peoples karma, that hasn’t been working for a very long time. Thanx

Laurie is greatly missed :( she was the beautiful face of the forum while whomever runs things behind the scenes has dropped the ball and has little concern how important this forum has been to many.
Something wasn't Kosher when the forum went down for almost a week a few months ago with no warning of maintenance no reason why. When ILK came back up something like a hyperlink was not getting fixed for Otie's Botanicals the bad link is https://https//www.otiesbotanicals.com/ - the https//- needs removal and this should be the hyper link otiesbotanicals.com/ and the link is still not fixed.

I haven't been around for a month or two also. I am trying to get caught up.

Nan,
I hope you’re feeling better. I dropped off the forum because I was suffering from a deep dark depression. I also had physical issues. I had a liver biopsy which turned out OK, thankfully.

However, I’ve been in a lot of pain because I need to get my gallbladder removed. It will be on an outpatient basis.

As far as my mental issues I knew I needed help so I voluntarily admitted myself to a psych unit. My meds were changed and so far so good or at least better. Lots of different issues going on in my life that are quite stressful.

Best wishes to all,
Dawn

It’s true Dawn, Laurie is no longer moderating here :( we all need to make sure things are kept up to proper levels of conduct and integrity of the forum !!laurie is the best at what she does/ did for the community and amazing at helping so many of us ! She’s good , and NaN is correct ... I hope things get sorted out in a good way ... in the meantime , I’m trying to be a fraction of what Laurie was , there’s no replacing her , but if all join in we’ll keep things good and proper , for Laurie , and for all the folks on the forum ! (L) :x

I am so sorry about the pain you are in, I have heard its worse than kidney stones. But happy to hear the liver is fine. I didn't realize that removing the gallbladder is an outpatient surgery I am actually shocked.

Taking care of yourself mentally is huge its very easy to fall all the way down. I could have easily slipped in that direction but I owe gratitude for forum member Jayisk who openly shared his pain and struggles and I heeded his warnings. We both lost our Moms, mine more recently.

Thank you for sharing and going for the help you needed.

Oh Nan, i’m so sorry to hear that your mom passed away. I can only imagine how you feel. You have my condolences and I don’t know if you believe in prayer but I will pray for you. I have both my mom and dad and I would be completely lost without them.

However, My dad is very sick. He has COPD and his oxygen intake is only at 5 to 10% now despite being on oxygen almost 24 seven. I saw him briefly today and his voice was raspy. I had talk to him yesterday and his voice sounded better than it did today so he may be getting bronchitis which can end up killing him or the flu.

My mom is sick with migraines and a sore throat too so she may have the flu. They both get the flu Vaccine. I am not a fan of the flu vaccine and I do not get it.

I saw my dad about a week ago and when I hugged him goodbye and told him I loved him he was so skinny I could feel his shoulder blades. It’s hard to see him like that. I never had a very good relationship with my dad, however the last couple years there’s been a drastic improvement and were able to tell each other I love you.

You’ll be in my thoughts and Prayers. Take it one day at a time.

Wishing you the BEST,
Dawn

So good to hear from you NAN 70. What you share always inspires me. Im glad I found this thread. I havent been here as much either. My pain has been so bad i was bedridden on heavy narcotics and kratom. The drugs dont do enough. Bones are fused from osteo all dorm my spine, knees, feet neck. and heavy nerve damage. Had a bad accident and if it was not fof kratom on top
of patches and pills i would have gone out of my mind.

Im sorry that youve had to go through all this struggle you describe, all readytaken. I dont know you. I came after you left. Glad you are back.


So glad to hear something about Laurie. Ive asked a few times about her, no response. I wondered what was happening here. Thank goodness for a few trusty warriors that kept responding to me.

I wish therd was a voice recognition feature here. Very difficult to use my hands`is there.
