Hi, everybody. Just thought I'd introduce myself. I'll try to not make this too long. My name is Dan and I've been reading up on kratom for a while now. I've been looking into trying it out for a number of issues, mainly back pain from a 2 decade old spinal injury, anxiety and major depressive disorder, and lack of energy. I have tried numerous meds and natural alternatives ever since I was diagnosed with mental health issues about 10 years ago. Prescription meds only help a little and I haven't had any luck with alternatives (CBD, herbs, nootropics, etc).

Anyway, I'm glad I found this forum and hope to learn as much as I can about kratom and hopefully get started using it to help alleviate some of these issues I've been suffering with.

Welcome to the best kratom forum ever, imperiumwolf (Dan)!

So glad you found this forum for guidance and moral support.

Use the SEARCH option (above) to look at previous discussions that are still perfectly relevant while you wait for our personal interaction with you.

Hope you feel better soon!

I suggest you get a sample pack to start experimenting with our guidance as you test them on your metabolism to see what works for you.

It’s not a quick fix for our symptoms, but it can alleviate many of our symptoms to more manageable (not necessarily get rid of them completely) so we can participate more in the world.

Looking forward to assisting on your journey.
Laurie

Thank you, Laurie. I definitely know that kratom won't be a cure all, but I do hope that it can be a jump start to getting my body and mind healthy. I turn 40 this year and I made a promise to myself that I would be healthier in my 40's than I was in my 30's.

Self care is such a cool gift to those who love us!

Self care - two of the most difficult words to prioritize, yet everything runs downhill from there...

Glad to be of assistance for you (so I don’t have to work on myself! Haha)

hi dan! glad to have you here. you can relax now. it will all be great. im not saying the leaf is a one stop shop and the same for everyone, it does require trial and error. have you ordered any yet? there are a lot of great approved vendors but in sense/ gold leaf is a good go to. you can get a sample pack of 3 ounces very reasonable plus a discount for the forum (I think its ILKforme15%) I know its listed in another strand.

its always good to try the 3 main colors to see what works for you. I take white or green during the day but red at night only, but everyones different. you need any other direction let us know. these are the fist steps to better self care- you are so right laurie!

Thank you, michele. I have not ordered any yet, but I am actually on in sense's website right now, trying to decide which samples to add to the pack. Haha. Also trying to decide if I want to use an echeck or credit card by phone (a huge part of my anxiety is using the phone).

do a sample pack with echeck. done and easy! and less than 25 with tax and shipping! I don't have phone anxiety but usually I am not very social; and don't want to wake hubby! have not tried any leaf from in sense was not happy with. just tried a sample of super green optima and it worked very well. have not tried many reds at all I don't take many red Sumatra worked for me, as far as whites they have some of the best. I really don't think you can go wrong with any selection you make. you can always private message insense ( rob ) if no phone is the best for you, of course he is much more knowledgeable about his products

I hear you about the phone! I’ve lost important friends over my inability to make a phone call. Though I now think they would have been a bit kinder about it if they were THAT important and healthy relationships for me.

If it helps, Rob is very normal. Great guy - not intimidating. IF you can make the phone call, he can be of important help getting your first order right FOR YOU. His input is very helpful about HIS product lines, and the personal handling is refreshing compared to robotic order filling at some of the big companies. I recommend you push past the fear THIS ONCE. If you can.

No judgement! I inherited phone phear. My Mom has it, too! That’s why I MOVED IN WITH HER. It was the only way to know what the “h” is going on with her. I have not moved out. It’s been well worth it! But now we BOTH have to listen to her dang phone ringing incessantly every morning because she still insists on HAVING a land line. Scammers start work at 0900 Pacific time sharp!

sounds like a great mix you cant go wrong! their green mang da is one of my favorites, and I have tried many. you will get it by the end of the week I can almost guarantee it!

next is to contemplate how you will take it. citrus juices I hear are very masking of the taste. I use a hearty apple juice usually.

I hear you on the phone calls laurie. my mom insists on keeping a land line too. shes got a cell but keeps it turned off 95% of the time. god forbid shes gotta charge it every 3 days hehe I bust her stones too...but we all are set in our ways I KNOW ill be difficult in 30 yrs or so if im still around!
