Just one of the Many Many Stories out there. This is Why Kratom should stay Legal everywhere.

A Mother's Story

"My daughter has Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type 3. It's a genetic disease. She doesn't have enough collagen in her bones, in her joints.

"She's had it since she was born, but we didn't know. She'd be playing in a swing and her elbow would get dislocated constantly. We had to keep going to the emergency room. Finally, we learned to relocate it. But around fifteen or sixteen, she tried to work, and she kept getting fired because she had all these notes from doctors saying she couldn't do certain things.

"She loves to bake, but she kept being fired from King Soopers, Albertsons, Safeway. I figured she couldn't keep a job. So back in 2001, 2002, when she was older, I bought her a bakery so she could be her own boss, without knowing what the disease was. And it caused more damage, because she was lifting a lot of things. Bakery stuff is heavy. I had my youngest daughter helping, but she had the disease, too. We didn't know about that, either. They were both complaining about a lot of pain.

"Finally, we found a doctor who told us about the disease. At the time we learned of the illness, a specialist in Indiana informed that only three doctors knew about the illness. That was, according to him. He stated one was in England, the other in France, and he was in the U.S. He had the illness as well! He understood. There are more doctors now who are aware of the illness, but don’t know what to do.

"Afterward, my daughter asked, 'What should we do with the bakery?' I said, 'Shut it down.'

"That's when the doctors started putting her on pain medication. She'd been on Ibuprofen and whatever before then, but it was damaging her stomach. So she started pain management. Over the years, she'd take Vicodin, Oxycontin, Oxycodone, and she'd have to take sleeping pills, too, because the pain wouldn't let her sleep.

"Things kept getting worse and worse. She was like a zombie, always sleepy. She would lay down and fall asleep. Sometimes she'd try to eat and she'd go to sleep, too. She just wasn't my daughter anymore. I said to her, 'These doctors are going to kill you.'

"Then her main doctor retired and nobody wanted to touch her. The other doctors didn't want to prescribe pain medication anymore, and no matter how many Vicodins she was taking, they weren't helping. She was hurting so much.

"Then this kid we know told her about kratom. He used it for fun, but he said it was good for pain and told me where to get it on the Internet. She didn't want to use it at first, just like she didn't want to take pot. But finally, she decided to try it.

"She had to sample a few different kinds, because some of it would work for her and some of it wouldn't. Like, the white vein kratom didn't work for her at all, and the red vein didn't, either. But the green vein one did work. There are different strains of the green, and she takes one during the day and another one when she knows she's not going to be going anywhere. She takes spoonfuls with something citric: lime juice or orange juice or something like that. It was trial and error, but she figured out what worked for her.

"She's so much better now. Before, she was sleepy and lethargic — always tired, always hurting. Now, it's not like she doesn't have pain, but it's controllable. And her face: She looks alive. She's not sleeping all day. And she can really tell the difference. She'll say, 'You see those drug addicts on the street, where they're slumped over and stuff? That was me.' It was basically like she was a heroin addict. But she weaned herself off all the pills. She was sick for two weeks. But she's so much better.

"It's been about a year and a half since she started taking kratom, and I just feel like my daughter is alive again. It's not cheap, but thank goodness we can buy it by the kilo.

"These darned feds who are trying to stop kratom have no idea that they're playing with my daughter's life. She said to me, 'Mommy, if they ever make kratom illegal and I can't use it, I guess I'll kill myself.' That's what a lifesaver it's been for my family. She was angry, depressed, and now she's not. This stuff has saved my daughter's life."

A really good story ...thanks for sharing.

I too, like Kratom for pain relief because it does NOT cause impairment.

It is perfect for pain management for MY mother . I have a mother's story to share too.

My mother is 98 years old and lives in an assisted living facility.

Recently she decided to manage her own pain with her Tylenol #3 precription. She went into a drug induced delirium. She was as loopy as a roller coaster! 120mg of codeine per day in a 98 year old body will do that!

Once I figured out what it was and stopped it she returned to normal.

Doc and I agreed no more codiene precriptions, so now she is managing her pain with some precription Voltaren and kratom.

I do not have to worry about her taking too much. She is able to think cleary and is much more mobile. Kratom will NOT cause her to fall over or be unsteady on her feet.

I make capsules for her and she takes 4 so her dose is about 2 grams. At this point I do not even care if she takes more and keeps upping the dose. As long as she is comfortable!

Of course the constipation has to be managed, but we have a plan in place using natural herbs and fruit base laxative that works well.

So that's my mother's story!

That's Fantastic! 98 yrs old. We all wish we could Live that long. She must have some great genes & have lived a clean healthy Life. That just shows you that even in a 98 year old body Kratom can't do no Harm but with Codeine being a mild pain killer it had side effects.
