My fibromyalgia had been getting to me a lot recently. The endless pain and fatigue was getting me down. I had no social life even with my family as I would just stare blankly at the TV all evening, having used all my brain power during the day at work.
I had had CBD Oil in the back of my mind for a few months and then my parents saw it on a TV programme about health and how it can help mental health, fatigue and chronic pain.
I researched a fair bit and didn’t want to pay a lot just in case it was a waste but Holland and Barratt had a sale on so I bought a bottle. I had my doubts especially as on many of the facebook groups I’m a part of, most say shop bought is too weak or doesn’t work.
I started it two weeks ago, first only taking two drops a day and I’m now on 5 a day. The first week I didn’t notice any difference but by the second week I have noticed a positive difference in my mental health. Even my family have noticed a difference in this.
It has also helped my fatigue immensely. I was struggling a lot with fatigue and it was to the point I could barely function at any point of the day. However in the evenings I can now socialise, be actively involved with quiz shows on TV and follow conversations. I know it doesn’t sound llike much, but it has made all the difference.
Don’t get me wrong, I am in no way cured, but I would say my symptoms are 20% better than before taking CBD Oil. I haven’t really noticed a reduction in pain, but mentally I feel a lot better and more positive.
I can take up to 10 drops a day so I’m ging to continue slowly increasing it to see if I get any other positive changes from it.
