Hello everyone! I’m a 65 yr. old widow and I live with my youngest daughter, son-in-law and my beautiful 3 grandsons. I have been on pain management since 2002 due to a car accident I had in 2001. Over the years I have developed osteoporosis, a very bad case of scoliosis accompanied by a large hump on my spine that is very painful, and my right hip is overloaded with osteoarthritis. I can’t describe the amount of chronic pain I experience 24 hrs a day. All the doctors I’ve had over the years have told me I would be on pain medication for the rest of my life! I believed them until I discovered Kratom! I’m still trying to figure out which strains to use for my issues and also to help me sleep. Due to my pain level, it’s very hard for me to sleep as well. So much I wish I wouldn’t have to take all these drugs anymore, but to be able to take a natural safe pain reliever, sleep aid and give me energy as well. Sometimes I wonder though if at my age would it help me enough so I don’t have to take these pills anymore. My daughter (desperado7) tells me that it’s hard for somebody to recommend different strains because what works for one may not work for me. She ordered some sample packs from in sense and they just arrived today. We’re very excited to start with white Hulu tomorrow! She didn’t order that one but it was thrown in as a little sample I guess. I guess I’m just here to have people to talk to about this & get advice or just be able to talk to people.
Thanks so much for any help or responses!

I fund Hulu, both red and green, to be excellent for mood.

P.S. Maybe ask your doctor about melatonin as a sleep aid.

hey grandma!

glad to have you here. truly. desperado seems like a lovely lady and daughter im sure you are proud. now down to the nitty gritty! in the begging stages, as a morning dose a white strain might work great. I love all hulus. whites usually doesn't help much for pain. but it might. if the white doesn't work enough I would move on to a green later in the day ( maybe 5-6 hrs later. im sure you will feel it wearing off ) and maybe a red before bedtime. most reds make me sleepy. but yes everyones different.

make sure you get enough water, electrolytes, vitamins and other fiber ect. its good to try all the 'colors' to see how your body responds to them. and every company/ strain is different. but have fun with it. I truly hope this works well for you. insense has a few herbals that help with pain and sleep. corydalis and skullcap are my favorites.

I have osteoarthritis. granted im in my late 40s but im a chef and work long days and weeks on my feet.there is no way I can do all that I do without kratom. it has been a life changer for me.

if a strain doesn't hit either of you well, you can even blend it in the future. like half white and green. I do that often. but yes finding out which company and the basic strains work for you is important. im glad you are both excited! have fun with it! im happy for you both.

Hey grandma!!

Our (L) family is growing !! Nice to meet you and cool knowing your daughter is spending some time here as well,

For me chronic pain is best dealt with by taking green strains .... occasionally red but they are a lot of missed than hits for me ... whites can be great to mix in for energy.. like mixing a potent red with a energetic white ... might be good for the day time.... but your daughter did good by getting a variety to try ... and see what sings the best to you :)

I’ve had chronic pain for most of my life , kratom has single handedly improvoed thebwuality of my life by 80% ...

Hope it does the same or better for you (L)

Take care and welcome again

Brandon
