    CBD And Me – Herbaleyes Flowers Review

    As you may have seen on Instagram I’ve been using a different type of CBD lately. I tried using the drops which I posted about here. Though they take the edge off, they’re not enough relief for my condition. I got into contact with Herbaleyes about what could possibly work for me. Stuart has been AMAZING in helping me and I’ve been lucky enough to try a few different things now. The main thing I’ve been using is Herbaleyes Flowers. Now, these won’t be for everyone but I wanted to stop some of the stigma around it. To anyone looking at these, you will see cannabis. It looks the same,…

    CBD And Me – Herts Hemp CBD Oil

    My Instagram feed has mentioned CBD quite a lot recently. I was using it in vape form before lock down happened and then due to that, I couldn’t get any juice from my normal supplier. I didn’t actually realise quite how much it was doing for me though. My pain flare ups have increased quite considerably since we went into lock down unfortunately. I was looking at some different options when the lovely people at Herts Hemp offered me a trial of their CBD oil. Disclaimer – Herts Hemp gifted me their products, all thoughts and feelings are my own and in no way influenced by the company. I’ve tried…

    How Joint Hypermobility Syndrome Affects Me

    I had a bad pain flare a couple of days ago and it made me realise that no many people around me really understand what’s going on. I get pains for a number of reasons; usually my back. So when I say “everything hurts” they don’t get why. My Mum doesn’t even know the in’s and out’s of my condition so I thought I’d write a post about how Joint Hypermobility Syndrome affects me and what it actually is. Hypermobility is quite common. 1 in 10 people have hypermobile joints or are “double jointed”. Just because you have hypermobile joints doesn’t mean you’ll develop Hypermobility Syndrome. This is much rarer…

    The New (Unwanted) Me

    If you follow me on Instagram or have seen my previous post, you will be aware that I spent a week in hospital at the end of January thanks to slipped discs in my spine. Well this is a bit of an update/getting things off my chest post relating to that. If you want to read the back story of what happened you can find itΒ HERE I’ve now been out of hospital for well over a month and I’m still struggling a lot. I left hospital still barely able to walk and the pain was quite literally uncontrollable.

    Life In Pain

    Imagine waking up every morning, unable to sit on the toilet or bend over the sink to splash water on your face until you’ve been up and walking about for at least half an hour. As some of you may know, if you follow my Instagram, I’ve spent the last week in hospital due to herniated discs in my spine. This is a more personal post than usual but I thought I’d share what’s been happening in the hope it will help people understand what it’s like to live with chronic pain and hopefully sharing the experience will help someone else feel less alone with what they’re going through.
