  Information on Fibromyalgia  

Fibromyalgia - Definition Definition. Fibromyalgia is a complex, chronic, and debilitating condition characterized by widespread musculoskeletal stiffness and pain, in conjunction with specific tender points, generalized fatigue, and sleep disturbance. People with this syndrome may also experience gastrointestinal disorders, headaches, trouble concentrating, or psychological symptoms, such as anxiety or depression.   Definition Fibromyalgia is a common syndrome in which people experience long-term, body-wide pain and tender points in joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues. Fibromyalgia has also been linked to fatigue, sleep problems, headaches, depression, anxiety, and other symptoms. Alternative Names Fibromyositis; Fibrositis more on Fibromyalgia | Fibromyalgia is a syndrome – that is, it is a group of signs and symptoms which when experienced in combination suggest that the patient is suffering from a specific medical condition. As with many syndromes, the symptoms of fibromyalgia come and go and vary between patients. Causes, incidence, and risk factors The cause of this disorder is unknown. Although none have been well proven, possible causes or triggers of fibromyalgia include: Physical or emotional trauma An abnormal pain response. Areas in the brain that are responsible for pain may react differently in fibromyalgia patients. Sleep disturbances, which are common in fibromyalgia patients. An infectious microbe, such as a virus. At this point, no such virus or microbe has been identified. Men and women of all ages get fibromyalgia, but the disorder is most common among women aged 20 to 50. The following conditions may be seen with fibromyalgia or mimic its symptoms: Chronic neck or back pain Chronic fatigue syndrome Depression Hypothyroidism Lyme disease Sleep disorders

Fibromyalgia - Symptoms Symptoms The primary symptom of fibromyalgia is pain. The exact locations of the pain are called tender points. Tender points are found in the soft tissue on the back of the neck, shoulders, sternum, lower back, hips, shins, elbows, and knees. The pain then spreads out from these areas. The pain is described as deep-aching, radiating, gnawing, shooting or burning, and ranges from mild to severe. The joints are not affected, although the pain may feel like it is coming from the joints. People with fibromyalgia tend to wake up with body aches and stiffness. For some patients, pain improves during the day and increases again during the evening, though many patients have day-long, non-stop pain. Pain can increase with activity, cold or damp weather, anxiety, and stress. Fatigue and problems with sleep are seen in almost all patients with fibromyalgia. Many complain that they can't get to sleep or stay asleep, and they feel tired when they wake up. Other symptoms may include: Irritable bowel syndrome with gas, and alternating diarrhea and constipation Memory difficulties and problems thinking clearly Numbness and tingling in hands and feet Palpitations Reduced exercise tolerance Sad or depressed mood Tension or migraine headaches

Fibromyalgia - Symptoms Signs and tests Diagnosis of fibromyalgia requires a history of a least 3 months of widespread pain, and pain and tenderness in at least 11 of 18 tender-point sites. These tender-point sites include fibrous tissue or muscles of the: Arms (elbows) Buttocks Chest Knees Lower back Neck Rib cage Shoulders Thighs Sometimes, laboratory and x-ray tests are done to help confirm the diagnosis by ruling out other conditions that may have similar symptoms.

Fibromyalgia - Symptoms Treatment Treatment should focus on not only relieving symptoms, but also on helping patients learn how to cope with their symptoms. Treatments usually involve trial and error: Patients may start with physical therapy, exercise, and methods for reducing stress. If these methods fail to improve symptoms, an antidepressant or muscle relaxant may be added to the treatment. Patient education programs called cognitive-behavioral therapy, which help with coping skills, are an important part of the treatment plan. Many fibromyalgia sufferers have found support groups helpful. Eating a well-balanced diet and avoiding caffeine may help with problems sleeping, and may help reduce the severity of the symptoms. Lifestyle measures to improve the quality of sleep can be effective for fibromyalgia. See: Sleeping difficulty Reducing stress and improving coping skills may also help reduce painful symptoms. Improved fitness through exercise is recommended. The best way to begin a fitness program is to start with short sessions of just a few minutes of gentle, low-impact exercises such as walking and swimming. Increase the length of each session slowly, as tolerated. Starting out slowly and gently can help ease you into an effective program you can stick with. Starting slowly helps stretch and mobilize tight, sore muscles, which may be relieved by gentle stretching and light massage, as well as acupressure, acupuncture, and relaxation techniques. Cognitive therapy usually lasts for 6 to 20 1-hour sessions. During this therapy, people with fibromyalgia learn to: Deal with negative thoughts Keep a diary of their pain and symptoms Recognize what makes their symptoms worse Seek out enjoyable activities Set limits The goal of using medication is to improve sleep and pain tolerance. Patients should receive drug treatments along with exercise, patient education, and behavioral therapies. Duloxetine (Cymbalta), pregabalin (Lyrica), and milnacipran (Savella) are medications that are approved specifically for treating fibromyalgia. However, many other drugs are also used to treat the condition, including: Anti-seizure drugs Other antidepressants Muscle relaxants Pain relievers Sleeping aids Severe cases of fibromyalgia may require a referral to a pain clinic.

Fibromyalgia - Causes, incidence, and risk factors Causes, incidence, and risk factors.   Some life factors can bring on symptoms or make existing ones worse, for instance:

  • Changes in the weather Stress levels Physical activity

Although fibromyalgia has only been classified as a syndrome within the last few decades, there are historical indications that a fibromyalgia-like condition was described by Hippocrates, thus making it one of the oldest medical mysteries. It is estimated that approximately three to six million Americans have fibromyalgia. The majority of the people with fibromyalgia are women, but the condition can occur in men and children as well. Most cases occur between the ages of 20 to 40, although fibromyalgia can develop at any age.

Fibromyalgia - Symptoms Symptoms.   The main symptoms of Fibromyalgia: Symptoms of fibromyalgia may vary in severity from person to person, ranging from mild to very debilitating. In addition, the symptoms vary from day-to-day or from month-to-month. Although symptoms may be extremely uncomfortable and often cause psychological stress, they rarely cause permanent physical damage. The symptoms most commonly associated with fibromyalgia include: Pain — Pain is the most prominent symptom, occurring for at least three months and taking many different forms. It has been described by patients as aching, burning, throbbing, shooting, tingling, or stabbing. Pain is felt on both sides of the body, both below and above the waistline. It is generally located in the neck, shoulders, back, and hips, although many people experience migratory pain (pain that moves from one part of the body to another). Pain is often worse in the morning and may be most prevalent in muscle groups that are used frequently. Factors such as weather changes, stress, exercise, or menstrual cycles may cause the pain to increase. Fatigue — Although some people may experience only mild fatigue, in others it is so debilitating that they are unable to work. This fatigue is not improved by sleep, which itself is not normal or restful. Sleep Disorder — Sleep studies have shown that people with fibromyalgia who suffer from fatigue generally have increased brain arousal at the time when the deepest sleep cycle (stage IV, delta) should be occurring. This prevents the body from getting the normally restorative benefits of sleep and may be the cause of fatigue associated with fibromyalgia. Difficulty Thinking ("Fibrofog") — Many fibromyalgia patients report an inability to concentrate, as well as memory impairment. Concurrent Symptoms and Conditions — Certain symptoms and medical conditions are more prevalent in fibromyalgia patients, such as: Digestive problems that may cause cramping, heartburn, or alternating constipation and diarrhea ("spastic colon" and irritable bowel syndrome) Chronic headaches and jaw pain Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) Psychiatric conditions, such as depression, anxiety, and nervousness Vision problems, such as dry eyes or difficulty focusing on nearby objects Balance problems, such as dizziness or impaired coordination Pelvic/urinary discomfort, which may be experienced as pelvic pain, frequent urination , painful menstrual periods, or painful sexual intercourse Restless leg syndrome Skin problems, such as itchy, dry, or blotchy skin Heightened Sensitivities — People with fibromyalgia often report an increased sensitivity to: Odors Noise Bright lights Medications Certain foods

  • Pain, and Extreme sensitivity to pain, so that just the slightest touch is experienced as being painful Stiffness Muscle spasms Extreme fatigue Poor quality sleep Brain fog (cognitive problems) Headaches nausea Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) Inability to regulate body temperature Restless legs syndrome Tinnitus Anxiety Depression

Causes The exact cause of fibromyalgia is unknown, and there has been significant controversy in the medical community about its origin. Currently, there are several theories regarding possible causes of fibromyalgia, including the following: Sleep Disorders — Sleep researchers have noted that fibromyalgia patients consistently show a disturbance during the stage IV (delta) cycle of sleep, which is considered the deepest and most restorative phase of sleep. Lack of restful sleep may be the cause of the overwhelming fatigue experienced by many fibromyalgia patients. Infectious Trigger — Some researchers believe that there may be a viral or infectious agent that triggers the onset of fibromyalgia. Preceding Incidence of Trauma — A high percentage of patients have reported traumatic emotional or physical events, such as an automobile accident or divorce, shortly before the onset of fibromyalgia symptoms. Although it is not believed that the events themselves cause fibromyalgia, they may serve as triggers in people who are genetically or otherwise susceptible to developing this syndrome. Biochemical Abnormalities in the Nervous System — Studies have shown that people with fibromyalgia often have highly elevated levels of Substance P, a pain neurotransmitter, in their spinal fluid. Levels of other neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and norepinephrine, or hormones, such as cortisol and growth hormone, may play a role in fibromyalgia patients. Researchers continue to explore these and other explanations for the possible causes of fibromyalgia. Currently there is no cure, but symptoms can be diminished by a combination of pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic treatments. Overlapping syndromes Physicians have noted that many people with fibromyalgia are also likely to have other syndromes, such as: Chronic fatigue syndrome Multiple chemical sensitivity syndrome Myofascial pain syndrome Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) Tension headaches or migraines Skin complaints Restless leg syndrome Irritable bowel syndrome Dysmenorrhea There has been some speculation that fibromyalgia may not be a separate condition, but instead represents a constellations of symptoms that overlaps with other illnesses, all of which may have the same cause or causes, which are still unknown.

Fibromyalgia - Symptoms Diagnosis | Fibromyalgia can be difficult to diagnose, as many of the symptoms are similar to other disorders. Your doctor will do a complete physical exam, discuss your symptoms, and then check for tender (trigger) points, areas of pain throughout your body, to confirm the diagnosis. Symptoms of chronic and widespread pain must be present for over three months before a doctor can make a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Testing for Tender (Trigger) Points — According to criteria established by the American College of Rheumatology, there are 18 specific tender (or pressure) points around the body that are potentially painful when palpated in people with fibromyalgia. Most healthy people have only three tender points. These points are located around the neck, shoulder, chest, hip, knee, and elbow regions. A diagnosis of fibromyalgia is usually made if 11 of these 18 points result in pain when palpated. Blood Tests — Although blood tests cannot identify fibromyalgia, your doctor may order these tests to rule out other illnesses that exhibit similar symptoms, such as lupus, Lyme disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and other musculoskeletal disorders.

Fibromyalgia - Symptoms Stages of Fibromyalgia How you’ll feel, getting diagnosed, treatments, medication and self-care suggestions. Your body aches and you feel exhausted, yet you’re unable to sleep. “Basically, you blew a fuse,” says internist Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D., medical director of the Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Centers and author of From Fatigued to Fantastic (Avery Trade). “Fibromyalgia represents an energy crisis,” says Teitelbaum, who suffers from the condition. “You’re spending more energy than you can make.” Emotionally, you may be feeling confused, afraid and angry when neither you nor your doctor knows what’s happening to your body. In fact, your physician may even tell you there’s no medical problem and refer you to a psychotherapist. Making matters more confusing, fibromyalgia sufferers may also be diagnosed with other conditions, including irritable bowel syndrome , a gastrointestinal disorder characterized by either constipation or diarrhea; headaches; and/or temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ), which is inflammation of the jaw joint.

Fibromyalgia - Symptoms Risk and Prevention Risk A risk factor is something that increases your likelihood of getting a disease or condition. It is possible to develop fibromyalgia with or without the risk factors listed below. However, the more risk factors you have, the greater your likelihood of developing fibromyalgia. If you have a number of risk factors, ask your doctor what you can do to reduce your risk. There are still many questions regarding the exact cause(s) of fibromyalgia, so risk factors are still being identified. Currently, risk factors include: Gender Although fibromyalgia may develop in men or women, statistics show that women are seven times more likely to develop fibromyalgia than men. Age People between the ages of 20-60 are at the highest risk of developing the onset of fibromyalgia, although it may occur at any age. Genetic Factors There is some indication that genetic factors may be involved in the development of fibromyalgia. Studies have shown that people with family members who have fibromyalgia are at a higher risk of developing it themselves. Specific Lifestyle Factors People who have recently experienced a traumatic physical or emotional event (such as divorce, car accident, etc) may be at a higher risk of developing fibromyalgia. Psychiatric Illness While the majority of individuals with fibromyalgia report a history of psychiatric symptoms, many patients do not, and there is no clear evidence that psychiatric illness causes fibromyalgia.

Information about What are the Benefits of Medical Marijuana for Fibromyalgia? Medical Marijuana Fibromyalgia Treatments > Cannabis Symptom Relief > Fibromyalgia and Medical Marijuana, Published by Jan | Fibromyalgia, a chronic pain syndrome, is hard to treat and impossible to cure. With pain so debilitating, patients may wonder about trying medical marijuana to ease their discomfort. The American Chronic Pain Society says in ACPA Medications & Chronic Pain, Supplement 2007: "Some states allow the legal use of marijuana for health purposes including pain, while the federal government continues to threaten physicians with prosecution for prescribing it." Scientific studies have shown that THC may help to decrease chronic pain in patients with Fibromyalgia. In addition, most Fibromyalgia patients who have tried medicinal marijuana for symptoms including: pain, depression, and insomnia report that medical marijuana is effective and has few side effects.   Six million Americans suffer from this chronic condition. There is no known cure and no known cause. However there are many factors involved. It may be triggered by an emotional or traumatic event. The condition is a neuro-chemical process. There is no inflammation associated. Diagnosis criteria: diffuse pain in 3 or more quadrants of body, and tender points in body (18 total tender points – patient must have 11 present). Researchers think it may be related to a disordered sleep pattern and poor exercise.   Visit - http://medicalmarijuana.com/medical-marijuana-treatments/Fibromyalgia

Information about What are the Benefits of Medical Marijuana for Fibromyalgia? Why Medical Marijuana Can Help to Treat Fibromyalgia | Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain syndrome which is characterized by diffuse muscle and joint pain. Fibromyalgia may also be referred to as Fibromyositis or Fibrositis. In addition to the chronic pain common to most or all Fibromyalgia patients, Fibromyalgia symptoms may include insomnia, depression, skin conditions, hypoglycemia, a loss of mental acuity, fatigue, gentiurinary complications, and more. Many of these symptoms can be reduced or alleviated by using medical marijuana . Medical marijuana for Fibromyalgia patients works well due to the natural pain relieving properties of THC and other cannabinoids found in cannabis. A 2006 study found that THC, a primary substance found in medical marijuana, reduced both chronic pain and experimentally induced pain by at least 50 percent in all patients who completed the THC therapy trial. In addition, clinical trials found that Nabilone, a synthetic medical marijuana pill, reduced pain and anxiety significantly in Fibromyalgia patients.   While Nabilone is an option for people with Fibromyalgia who live in states where medical marijuana is not yet legal, patients in states with legal medical marijuana may well find medicinal marijuana to be more cost-effective than Nabilone, as well as more effective in relieving Fibromyalgia symptoms. Medical marijuana is also all-natural and usually distributed by locally owned small businesses, rather than pharmaceutical corporations. ...

Information about What are the Benefits of Medical Marijuana for Fibromyalgia? Cannabis for Fibro? | Study into the effectiveness of medical marijuana on treating fibromyalgia has been limited, but there are some that suggest that cannabis works to help relieve the chronic pain associated with the condition, as well as make patients feel psychologically better. Dr. Stuart Silverman, a clinical professor of medicine and rheumatology at the Cedars-Sinai University of California in Los Angles agrees with the effectiveness of marijuana to treat fibro. He says that the unconventional drug has been used "historically and anecdotally" as a painkiller.   The studies that have been done on the effectiveness of cannabis for fibro show that the drug releases cannabinoids. These cannabinoids seem to trigger the release of more endorphins, a natural pain reliever produced by the body. Marijuana appears to treat multiple symptoms in some fibromyalgia patients including anxiety, restless legs syndrome and difficulty sleeping.   Visit - http://www.fibromyalgia-symptoms.org/fibro-and-medical-marijuana.html

Fibromyalgia Support Group >> A community of patients, family members and friends dedicated to dealing with Fibromyalgia, together. | Medical Marijuana (page 55) - POSTED BY sasnspice, 08/10/2012 06:55 AM - Personally I have actually told my husband that the time may come when we are going to be moving to a state that allows medical marijuana. I grew up in a home with parents who were hippies, and I can say they always did it. I never thought of using it, the curiosity just was not there. Now with the pain I just want to feel better, but I also want to do it legally so I do not have to worry about drug testing for jobs or getting stopped by the cops when I have some on me. ... The thing is, I'm not interested in the high, only the pain relief, sleep aid, appetite increase, reduction in nausea, and several other potential benefits I've been apprised to. Partially this is because I tend to feel depressed, not euphoric, on medications that commonly have euphoria as a side effect, but it's moreso because I am a novice elementary school teacher and I don't think it's appropriate to be in charge of the safety of children while not in a lucid state of mind. ...   Dear amethyst, there are strains of marijuana that has higher content of cannabinoids, CBN(cannabinoid) increases some of the effects of THC and decreases other effects of THC. High levels of THC and low levels of CBD contribute to a strong, clear headed, more energetic high. Cannabis that has a high level of both THC and CBD will produce a strong head-stone that feels almost dreamlike. Cannabis that has low levels of THC and high levels of CBD produces more of a stoned feeling. The mind feels dull and the body feels tired.

Information about Fibromyalgia and Medical Marijuana Fibromyalgia and Medical Marijuana | Women and Fibromyalgia > I’m not very humble when I say that I believe my book will one day be a steppingstone toward a greater understanding about why certain types of people are more prone to fibromyalgia. Furthermore, I haven’t read any books which outline all of the various theories regarding the cause of this condition such as mine has. Hearing the voices of others who suffer daily can help the reader know that s/he is not alone in the day- to- day struggles. I give details of various treatment modalities and I believe the book to be a valuable source of information about not only cause but what can be helpful in living with the daily challenges of this dis-ease. Yet, surprisingly, in spite of this comprehensive review and analysis I had never explored whether or not marijuana (Cannibas Sativa) as prescribed by a physician could be useful for pain control.   In fact, even now I have mixed feelings about the issues surrounding fibromyalgia and marijuana use even though I believe that cannibas is very helpful for several other medical conditions, in particular following chemotherapy. In the February,2008 issue of Journal of Pain it was reported that 40 patients were part of a study at the University of Manitoba in which a control and an experimental group were given either a placebo or Nabilone, (brand name Cesamet) a pain drug based on marijuana’s active ingredient. The results indicated that after one month there was significantly less pain and a better quality of life for those who took Nabilone.   Visit - http://womenandfibromyalgia.com/2009/08/08/fibromyalgia-and-medical-marijuana/

Fibromyalgia - Article (NEWS) xxx Cannabis Users In Public Protest Posted by CN Staff on May 06, 2002 at 16:28:32 PT Commentary Source: Hull Daily Mail UK | Hundreds of pot-smoking protesters took to the streets of Hull yesterday to campaign for the legalisation of cannabis. Police officers kept a close eye on proceeding, using cameras to film users but making no arrests at the time. The marchers were calling for the legalisation of the drug, both for medicinal and recreational purposes. The protest passed off peacefully and only one person was arrested, for a public order offence after allegedly making an obscene gesture at a police officer. Organiser Carl Wagner, who stood as a member of the Legalise Cannabis Alliance in the last General Election and who is planning to open a cannabis cafe in Hull, said he was disappointed not to see more people on the march. Marion Bean, 45, joined the march in a wheelchair, pushed by husband-to-be Roger Martin. She ate 'hash cake' for the first time last Sunday, and found it relieved her pain. She suffers with what is believed to be fibromyalgia, which attacks the central nervous system. She said: "I have three kinds of medicines prescribed by the doctors and none of them help for more than 20 minutes. "Cannabis, however, gives me a full night's sleep."   Visit - http://cannabisnews.com/news/12/thread12759.shtml

Cannabinoids exert their analgesic properties through their interaction with the cannabinoid receptors of the body’s endocannabinoid system. ***If you need quality Cannabis Oil, Marijuana & Canasol send your Enquiry to: (cannabis.oil992@gmail.com)*** "

She has been eating all kinds of anti-depressive medicins and she's feeling like crap everytime, and now she's trying to relief the pain with alcohol.. My mom is raised and has allways been living in sweden, and been that kind of person that litsens and believes everything that media says, one thing is that marijuana is dangerous. Im not that stupid. I know that marijuana would help her, it would remove almost all of her pain, dizzines and sleeping problems and all of the other bad effects fibro has. My mom refuses to use cannabis for medical use, because it's illegal in sweden and she thinks it's dangerous. I have shown her all kinds of documentaries and all kinds of websites that qoutes that marijuana is good for your body. I hate to see my mom in pain and not be able to work everyday, its terrible. I dont know what to do anymore, i just want my mom to realize that testing one time for a medical cause is not a bad thing, even if its illegal or not. I dont really know what kind of answer im looking for, maybe something that can help me persuade my mom or make the politicans and doctors in sweden be smarter so they can name it medical marijuana instead of "dangerous drug"

Please help.

Try making tea from it, that's the simple method. You can also make tictures, and canna-butter - which you can then use in baking. Also, mix into cream - like noxzema - let sit for a spell (the longer, the better) and try applying it topically where it hurts.

"My website is all over the internet and even often on the very first pages. Believe me or not, so many just ignore the information I and others put out. Cognitive dissonance that is what it is called. Or maybe the internet is not at all that much used to find useful information, on several subjects, as we are supposed to believe. It looks as if people rather remain stupid and prefer to be butchered and/or slowly poisoned with pharmaceutical drugs than sort some good things out for themselves. Anyway, I know how to help you when you suffer from fibromyalgia! Of course there will be a difference in how long the treatment will take depending on whether you got the disease two years or ten years ago for that matter.

But if you live nearby, I can help you in big steps and in a very safe way. Beware, there are so many treatment officers around, from all layers, who just pretend they can help you and they will feel no shame about that. Anybody who thinks he/she has a feeble mind, or is psychiatric, better not use marihuana without proper guidance. However I think, marihuana is beautiful and very inspiring stuff and it has fantastic healing qualities. Every intelligent person knows that. :)It has been widely used for ages.

I cant take it anymore, unsympathetic doctors..one after another..yes I believe you are in pain...no, I wont treat you with narcotics even if thats the only thing that helps. I give up, I am going to try medical marijuana the "legal" way..which is still questionable in california. While being legal under state law, its is illegal under federal law, so our dispensaries out here keep getting raided...enough is enough people!!!! What is it going to take for them to realize that the only difference between a pot dealer and a bartender, is one has a license and is taxed by the government, but isnt it ironic that they legalized the more dangerous one? Didnt prohibition teach us anything???? When we the last time you heard on the news about cops raiding an illegal gin facotry or a still? THEY DONT! Because alcohol is legal and no one has any reason to manufature it. If marijuana was legal, no one would need to grow it...WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!!! Thanks for letting me rant...I'm in a lot of pain with my fibromyalgia right now.

It does suck that since the VA medical system has turned there back on me, but what does not suck is that on the day that they politely and correctly turned me away was the day that a friend came up to me and was like 'Dude read this' She gave me a pamplet on fibromyalgia, and for almost verbatium even down to the medicines I was prescribe previously was on the papers. I have also Smoked Marijuana for quite some time. after the injury do remeber say that it makes me feel better but I chalked that up to just being a stoner. It was when I stopped Smoking for a while and then started up that I noticed that it did truely help.

First I need to get myself profesional diagnosed with fibromyaligia, then I was wondering how do I obtain medical marijuana.

"After suffering from the various symptoms for almost a decade, my Dr. finally diagnosed my Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue. The pain got so bad, I couldn't leave bed, and lost my well-paying job, lost my home, and my disabled husband and I had to move clear across the country to live with our son. Before I left North Carolina, a friend recommended that I try marijuana to alleviate some of the symptoms. So for about two months before I left, I just smoked a small amount each night around bedtime. It made a huge difference in how I slept and how I felt the next day. I need to abstain in order to find another job out here, but frankly I tried for about two weeks, and got in such bad shape that my son insisted that I start using a small amount again at bedtime. I am a creative person, and am trying to figure out some way to make a living without having to submit to what I consider a ridiculous drug test. I would never go to work stoned and I feel what I do on my own time for my health is my business. When are these corporate people who I happen to know DO smoke at times, going to figure out that cannabis is much better than the after-affects of sleeping pills, pain pills, etc.?"
