Cbd oil

I bought this because it came as a recommendation from someone who takes it. It is from the cannabis plant. It doesn't have the thc in it that's what makes you high. It was expensive a small bottle for $60. I had high hopes it would work. I'm so disappointed. I've been on a lot of different meds for my anxiety nothing is working. My anxiety is from the childhood trauma of losing my mother at age 9. I wasn't given the help I needed to deal with the loss and didn't have closure. I am thinking of asking my Dr about a medical marijuana card. My chest pounds all day. My anxiety was triggered by a move to another town where I dont know anyone it brought up the feelings of abandonment

Hi. My oldest daughter died almost four years ago; she left an eleven year old and a three year old behind. They miss her so much.

About medical weed- it really isn’t an anti anxiety help. If you’re just going to sit in your house fine, but probably not for much else( recreational user for 40 years).

I think CBT would probably help you better than anything else, and a benzodiazepine like Klonipin or Ativan temporarily .

I also have anxiety disorder and it is tough. CBT has helped me and klonipin is a lifesaver; unfortunately my psychdoc is making me eliminate it.

Just want to send you my sympathy for the loss of your daughter. How terribly sad for you and for her children. There’s another post here “how to deal with your pain” that mentioned 5% of people (1 in 8) lose a parent before age 15 and they either turn into criminals and/or rise way above the average and change the world. Some choose victimhood, others over compensate for the loss. Interesting. It’s being unmoored, drifting in a big sea, to not have a parent, in my experience. There’s a self-sufficiency that must be built up earlier than other kids. Sometimes I think about parents who’ve lost kids and kids who’ve lost parents somehow comforting eachother. It’s a sad little fantasy, you’ve lost a kid, I’ve lost a parent, maybe we can heal eachother. There is healing here, I hope, for all of us.

You never get over it.... you just learn to live with it. Thank you for your kind words.

My grandkids have a fine father and lots of people that love them- more than most.

I pray for them and will for you

So magnesium does help? I hear magnesium citrate is most readily absorbed.
