Thank you so much for the update, Jayisk. I’ve learned so much from your experiences - and I certainly admire your improving “stamina” to carry you through the multitudes of challenges requiring adrenaline/survival mode.

I’ll be sure to read this again when I’m having a pity party for minor discomforts!

I know Nan70 appreciates your updates also.

What a survival story! As we keep pushing along. Often simply because we are needed by loved ones. That’s good reason.

I also have large sections of my life that are lost to my memory. The brain must be trying to help us avoid overload? I don’t know, but it’s fascinating!

>:D

How is your family coping these days?! I’m sure Nan70 could use an update on you.

I’m guessing PTSD is a new issue for you? I’m so glad you’re here to help others! >:D


Wife and my daughters are doing well. Thank God i am mentally and emotionally stable now. The PTSD was a living nightmare. Didnt know if was i was going to make it. was literally living hr to hr or minute to minute at times.
I have had it triggered before by traumatic stressful events but never had this issue of no control of emotions. I'm guessing because the majority of my life i was drunk/high. Or the 12 straight yrs they had me on 5 strong psysch meds that completely numbed my and changed who i was.

Now my issue is staying healthy. Keep running into minor setbacks that take me out for a wk or two.
And i just got over being stuck in bed for 6 wks.., couldnt do anything.., with my chronic bronchitis.

Now i am stressing because i need to get back to work. I stopped working full time 3+ yrs ago to take care of my mother full time when she was alive.

Strange thing i still dont have memories of her or think about her. Maybe in a dream but not often.
Now reflecting on it i realize taking care of her took a toll on me. I was chronically ill for 2 yrs before taking care of her.
So you get sick of doctors, hospitals and all that goes with it. Plus it wasnt like we were having fun. Yes we got to spend the time together.
But anyone that is chronically ill and their quality of life goes down right in front of you its tough to go through. When someone is that ill and are in pain they are not themselves. And i think as family members we go into survival mood to just deal with what they are going through at the movement. We dont realize at the time how much of an impact it has on us.
But i was glad i was there for her. She had no one else.

every morning i get up and take my kratom, make coffee and read ILK and some other things on the computer.
just havent been posting.
in the morning it takes me about 30 mins to clear my head. sometimes wake up with a lot of anxiety and racing thoughts. But kratom is a wonderful thing.
Hope all is well with you Laurie and Nan.
Take care!

Can't beat having a vendor who provides the personal touch on top of good Kratom at good prices from good sources.

This looks like a list of the originals! From before the kratom rumor tree sprouted and reproduced all over the place (cause it helps so many people with so many completely DIFFERENT challenges/issues/etc). Love y’all!

Anybody know how Trudyf is doing?!

Ditto Ditto to what Brandon Said! Insense & GoldLeafBotanicals are both Reliable Companies. I will be writing another Review on each of them soon with different Strains. ILK Is Just The Best!

I had to type in the website rather than the links in the post.

I’m thinking that was intentional...the site comes up just fine when I go in by using my keyboard. FYI

Ahhhh the memories, Nan70. I knew we would become the advocates that are always saying, “back when I discovered this new leaf....”.
I’m actually hoarding VINTAGE strains and vendor products that no longer exist (product is fine, business was not, apparently”. Sentimental value, LOL
