Thanks Michele373

I am getting lots of great ideas and advice thanks to you and all who have written to me.
I was just thinking today that I can finally take care of how I'm feeling each day. Thank you for the suggestion on getting other colors. I will do that and then let the fun and feeling better begin :)

Thank you for your advice and I will look into InSense - Goldleaf white Hulu. Sounds good.
Yah...I think the white maeng da is a bit strong for now at least. Have some green maylay coming today.
:):)

seashell,

some great suggestions! since you already have a white and may not use that as much by itself, I would get other colors. maybe 2 different reds and maybe another green or gold? just my opinion. typically red maeng da or red horns are good with pain and give a touch of energy. but start small.

then again all reds made me sleepy in the beginning so proceed with caution.

im glad you grew the courage to try something totally different. now I feel like my own health practitioner. I wake up saying I need some gold indo today...if you make it fun it will be fun. but it really does help and im glad it worked for you right away!

seashel,

As insense3 said the green could be a good pick.

For me greens help the most with my BPD. The also usually give me great clarity for my normally foggy old brain.:lol:
Reds help me sleep and wind down for the day. But there are some who Reds wake right up. :-?One of our sweethearts here, Laurie, is one of them. >:D:x

The Green Malay may be a very good pick for you. Especially if the White MD still makes you jittery at 1g.

Whenever I try a new vendor or strain I start at 1g or less in case that particular batch or strain is more potent. It can happen with a new batch of the same strain from the same vendor. :ohmy:

Everybody here has seen me post countless times that the Green Riau from Insense is my favorite green. (They are probably ready to beat me from saying it so much.) :lol:Insense is my first Kratom love so I am partial to that vendor. :cheer:

But there are a lot of excellent vendors I have also tried that are on the approved vendor list and some that are not.
Never tried The Kratom Connection though.

Each person's reaction to the same strain of kratom can be totally different. It's a ton of trial and error. I think it was my second or third sample pack purchase before I came across the Green Riau from insense. :-bdBut even then you have to fine tune your dose for the best result. :-?

It's after my work time (4pm est) and my wife just called wondering why I didn't text to let her know I was on my way so I need to head home. :-h
:cheer:
My Grandkids say I’m a cuckoo head. ;)

I got the MD from "The Kratom Connection" website. If you read what I wrote earlier today I took 2gr of the White MD this morning for the first time and I've been a bit jittery for a couple of hours. I do have anxiety attacks so I want to be cautious. I will try 1 next time.
I am interested in finding a strain that will help with anxiety, have some euphoric affects but not put me to sleep. I'm hoping the the Super Green Maylay will help with that. Do you know any?

Thank you for your kind words about caring for my daughter. She is a real angel and just smiley all of the time.
Have a good afternoon :)


Some of my favorites are green Malays,green Hulu’s , and green maeng da , I’d suggest laying off white strains at the moment .. The exception would be InSense/ Goldleaf white Hulu .... acts more like a green with my chemistry... give energy , focus , pain relief and groundedness while lowering my anxiety.... real special white !

Please let us know how the super green Malay works out for you (L)take care

Welcome to the forum, Seashel! Hopefully you have other colored varieties on hand to try. It’s all subjective, but a green would be my next try, if I were you. With reds, the results are vast and long term experience will be your guide along with people in this forum and the vendors listed. Best wishes and I look forward to hearing how your journey is going,

Welcome seashel :-h
It's great to have you here as part of the family.

That is fantastic news that the White MD worked for you! =D>
This plant is truly a gift from God.:-bd
If it is ok, can you say who you got it from?

Some whites make me feel like I am going to jump out of my skin or have a heart attack. Even at just a 1g dose. :woohoo:
But I have a couple of whites that I can tolerate at a lower dose of 0.7g to 1g. My normal dose is 1.2 to 1.5g for headaches and body pains.

You are an amazing person to be able to care of an adult special needs child. I know a few in my church that also have special needs children. I have, on occasion, helped out with them but it is not something I can do regularly. I hate to be selfish but I get way to depressed and sad when I see what they and their parents constantly struggle with.
It takes a very special person to be able to do it.

Don >:D
