Who am I

Share
Tree of Life
Who am I and why do I exist?

I've spent days, and years wondering about this.
Ever since that cursed question entered my brain,
I have been lost.
I have been floating, skating through life,
always avoiding the answer,
always believing the illusion,
believing in my cog in the machine.

Where have I gone astray?

I am almost 41 years old, and I am now more uncertain about many things in my life, more then I have ever been.

Life is short, fleeting, illusive, mysterious, and I realize that one day, someday, my day will come.
Between now and then I want to live!

I will spend no more time on hatred, anger, or negativity,
no more wasted time!

My soul can no longer afford to pay those high bills.

I won't keep chasing my tail looking for happiness.

I don't have time.

I will be happy and have a good life filled with love.
This is the promise I make to myself,
this is my path,
from this day on.

It seems that the wrath of the gods got a punch on the nose
And it's startin' to flow, I think I might be sinkin'
Throw me a line, if I reach it in time
Meet you up there where the path runs straight and high

Simple Man
by Graham Nash


I am a simple man
so I sing a simple song
never been so much in love
and never hurt so bad at the same time.
I am a simple man
and I play a simple tune
I wish that I could see you once again
across the room like the first time.
I just want to hold you I don't want to hold you down
I hear what you're saying and you're spinning my head around
and I can't make it alone.
The ending of the tale
is the singing of the song
make me proud to be your man only you can make me strong
like the last time.
I just want to hold you I don't want to hold you down
I hear what you're saying and you're spinning my head around
and I can't make it alone.

This is a great recipe for a cannabis tincure. It works great with spasms / pain. For maximum effect, be sure and choose cannabis indica, and not sativa. Don't drive or operate anything dangerous while using this. Effects last for a few hours. Good luck.


Tincture/Cannamist Recipe:


VICS Cannamist/Tincture Recipe,
and Instructions on How to Convert THCA Into THC

A tincture is an alcohol-base solution of a non-volatile medicine (in this case cannabis). In this case alcohol is not only the solvent used to separate cannabinoids from the plant matter, it is what makes this type of application (particularly in fine-mist form) more bio-available and therefore effective.

In whole-plant cannabis, THC content is expressed as THCA (tetrahydrocannabolic acid) prior to decarboxilation into THC, which takes place when cannabis is heated during cooking, and smoked or vaporized ingestion. THCA is a mild analgesic and anti-inflammatory but does not have good affinity with our CB1 receptors, so in order to make a THC-rich tincture that has many of the same therapeutic effects as smoked ingestion (including rapid absorption, quick relief and ease of self-titration), we must convert the THCA in the plant matter into THC prior to extracting it through an alcohol soak.

Below are detailed instructions based on a unique VICS research project that will allow you to convert the THCA from your bud or high quality leaf material into more usable THC with very little loss through vaporization.

Dry heat conversion of THCA into THC:

Preheat oven to 325°f exactly (purchase an oven thermometer if you're not sure).

Take cannabis leaf or bud and spread in a thin, 1 inch layer on a clean cookie sheet.

Put in the oven for 5 minutes exactly, remove, and transfer to glass or ceramic container to cool.

Pack a mason jar loosely but completely with converted cannabis product; add a few sprigs of fresh organic mint.

Add alcohol (50% is preferred, but 40% vodka works just fine) until the jar is full.

Seal, shake and put in a dark, cool place for 2 weeks.

After 2 weeks, strain mixture through fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth. Add 2-4 tablespoons of organic honey (to taste, but without over-sweetening the mixture).

Pour into bottles fitted with fine mist spray tops.

Dosage:

Initial Dosage: Spray two times on the inside of the cheek, and wait 30 seconds before swallowing. Wait ten minutes and if desired effect has not been reached, repeat on the opposite cheek. Wait ten minutes, and repeat until desired effect is achieved. Dosage will vary between users, but should remain fairly constant once established.

Effect will last for between 1-2 hours. Repeat use as needed.

If you feel dizzy or disoriented, immediately discontinue use. Do not operate heavy machinery or drive during use of this product.

Year number five

X-Posted to ms_support


This is the fifth year since MS entered my life, my anniversary comes in July. Today was the day to visit my neurologist for the annual tune-up and oil change, so to speak. I arrived at my appointment just in time. After parking what seemed like a mile away, I had to jog in order to be on time. The visit was fast, I first met with the MS nurse, she gave me a questionnaire to fill out, then asked me about medications. She said "I see you aren't on any medications.", I reply " I am but, not any of the traditional medications. I am on LDN.". I told her a bit about it, and she smiled, then said "never heard of it" and slipped out of the room.

Next came my neuro, a slight, soft spoken man, who heads the neurology department for my end of the country. He was in a bit of a hurry, and came in all business. Upon the table I sat, in my roughly tied johnny shirt. I had to perform all the regular tricks, like hopping on one foot, touch my finger to my nose and then to his ever moving finger, he checked my eyes, and my favorite, the strength tests. At the end of the visit my neuro looked at me and said "B, you have changed my mind about LDN". I almost fell on the floor! This was the same doctor who told me I would have trouble walking in five years if I didn't get on the CRAB drugs. He went on to say "I have prescribed LDN to about a half a dozen patients, that have a case history that would fit with it. Your GP prescribed it to you, right? I will now give it to any patient who asks me for it. You are doing even better than last year. Keep doing what you are doing, and I'll see you next year". This made my day! I felt vindicated!

Taking LDN has been an uphill battle. Going against majority usually is. LDN has always felt like the right drug for me, and today I feel very happy this was my chosen medication. Later, I will celebrate with my wife and puppy. We will go for a stroll, trough the forest, near our home on this beautiful spring day. Everyday is a blessing and today I am filled with gratitude.

Today is the four year anniversary of my first MS attack, and I'm still standing. My health these days is quite good, no real issues except I need more sleep. I've been working very long hours and sometimes only have time for a few hours sleep. I am very happy to see this anniversary come and go. For some reason I lived with some fear that maybe another attack would come this July. Recently I turned around my way of thinking from one of doubt and fear to one of healing. I have been listening to a lot of Dr. Wayne Dyer lately, and one important thing stuck. One percent of doubt in your ability to heal, will negate 99 percent of belief that you can heal. I am healing! My body has an amazing ability to heal from anything! This is my belief, and is what has gotten me through to where I am today. I will keep believing and healing. I won't let doubt and fear poison me again. I'm not going down like that.

CANNABIS EXTRACT CUTS URGE ENURESIS IN MS PATIENTS

Medical Post
Source: http://www.hempevolution.org/study/cannabis_extract_ms.htm

Paris - Treatment with cannabinoids may help prevent urge incontinence in multiple sclerosis patients, investigators said at the joint meeting of the International Continence Society and the International UroGynecological Association.

Dr. Robert Freeman, a urologist at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth, England, reported results in 657 patients with stable multiple sclerosis who had been randomized to treatment with oral cannabis extract, delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol ( delta9-THC ) or placebo.

Patients completed urinary incontinence diaries and quality-of-life questionnaires, and some of them also underwent urodynamic studies and urinary pad tests.

The 15-week study found a 38% decrease in the frequency of urge incontinence episodes from baseline in the cannabis extract group, a 33% decrease in the delta9-THC group and an 18% decrease in the placebo group, Dr. Freeman reported.

While none of the treatments had an effect on quality-of-life or urodynamic outcomes, the cannabinoid groups had a mean decrease of 43.88 mL on the urinary pad test compared with a mean increase of 8.27 mL in the placebo group.

"Our findings are encouraging given the fact that urinary incontinence affects up to 80% of multiple sclerosis patients," said Dr. Freeman. More studies are needed to verify the results, he added.
