Big Pharma doesn’t give a damn about you. That’s right. Your doctor? Well they probably want to help if they aren’t blocked by the system; government, insurance, AMA. Those pills they gave you probably won’t work anyhow. So why are we killing ourselves for their profit?

I mentioned in my last post that I stopped taking neuro (neurological) medications about 6 years ago. Before that, I was on low doses for many years prior to 2005. When my 12 year old broke my pelvis, in 2005, my migraines became worse and I had to be bumped up to much higher doses of medications.

I have taken anti-anxiety medications (like Xanax and Valium), old school Tricyclic anti-depressants (like Pamelor and Elavil), beta-blockers (like Propanolol and Atenolol), calcium channel blockers (like Verapamil), depression medications (like Celexa and Zoloft), seizure medications (like Topomax and Tegretol), bipolar medications (like Seroquel and Depakote). I was also given nerve medications, like Gabapentin and Lyrica. In most cases, I tried several drugs, if not EVERY drug, in that category. I’m sure I’ve left out a few.

Some of the side effects I had were nausea, migraines, blackouts, insomnia, fatigue, the inability to stay awake during the day, slurred speech, mood swings/bouts of crying and extreme anger, bradycardia, tachycardia, poor coordination, clumsiness, dizziness, weight gain, loss of sexual desire, and more. I even had a seizure from Lyrica leaving my system. I took my son to dinner (at a restaurant) and, between finishing dinner and getting the check, I blacked out. They thought I was drunk so they called an ambulance. By the time the ambulance arrived, I was fine and coherent and confused, but getting used to random blackouts. Are you jealous yet? Do you want my life? I didn’t either.

I was raised by Jewish Hippies and my mother often wished I would use more cannabis. My brother, a farmer in Oregon, encouraged me to treat naturally. I was using some cannabis, but, after my back surgery in 2012, I went 100% natural. Today, I take the occasional pain killer, but I use cannabis all day.

It never leaves me *whacked out* and I haven’t blacked out a single time. I can function and take care of my responsibilities. I don’t have severe mood swings, slur my speech, or fall asleep in my plate of food. It’s time to quit lining the pockets of someone who doesn’t give a flip about you and start medicating naturally. You won’t be sorry either!

I hope you all will bear with me as I am setting up this site and then going out of town for a week! Full disclosure: I was going to wait until I got back, but circumstances left me with a desire to write! You see a friend of mine is in a situation and it is oh so familiar. It’s familiar because I was her 6 years ago.

I’ve had migraine headaches for as long as I can remember. When I was a child, I remember being nauseous ALL the time. Unless you have migraines, you don’t realize that a migraine is not JUST a headache. A migraine is a full body experience. Your digestive system is affected. Your head hurts. Sometimes, there is excruciating ear, eye, or jaw pain. You’re starving and nauseous at the same time, but that is only if you aren’t actively throwing up. You feel like you have the flu. Your entire body is sore and you may have vertigo or feel woozy. I never leave the house without sunglasses just in case the sun is out in the dead of winter. Also, you need ear muffs in case it is cold and the wind is blowing. *Brain fog* is perhaps the most frustrating symptom. It can reduce an intelligent person to a babbling idiot. I’ve had people ask my NAME when I had a migraine and I had trouble producing it. Then if it dares to be bad enough that the host of medications you have at home do not help, you then have to go to the ER. Once at the ER, you must deal with hours of waiting and the staff looks and the doctors disdain and most everyone assuming you are a drug addict. It’s not fun.

Once you’ve finally found a neurologist you like or (the holy grail) a doctor that actually gets migraines themselves, you then have to deal with trying dozens of medications for prophylactic treatment (stopping the migraine before it starts). Not a single one of these medications is actually created FOR migraines, because they aren’t important enough to concern the big bad drug companies with, so you take seizure meds and beta blockers and bipolar medications. None of them work or, IF they DO work, then they must be changed every 3-6 months. Then you have to get used to another medication all over again. Oh and, by the way, the side effect of each and every one of these medications are migraine headaches!

About six years ago, after blackouts, and crazy episodes, and seizures, and headaches that NEVER got better, I decided I was done being a guinea pig! I just started the RSO/Phoenix Tears/Cannabis Oil. I am so very thrilled with the results I am getting and I just started!!! I know this is something that a lot of people do not really know a great deal about so I am keeping a journal. I’ve asked several friends also using the RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) to keep a journal as well. I encourage you to ask any questions you might have and I will do my very best to answer them!
