Hi. My name is Tracy and I apologize in advance because I know my story is long, but I think it’s important I share it. I added a subject to each paragraph in case you want to skip my female problems or something else. If you would like to learn about CBD, what it is, what it’s used for, how to use it, or would like to follow or even join me on my journey as I step out of the norm and into what is hopefully a happy, fulfilling, and pain-free life, then please follow my blog @ simplymecbd.com/blog/. And to shop my products stop on by simplymecbd.com/shop/. But for now here’s a little bit about me, why I’ve decided to get into the CBD business, and how I met my partner. I’m not a writer so please bear with me.
Female problems: My problems began at a young age, from my very first period at 14 years old and on I had excruciating pain at least 1/2 of the month, every single month of my life. I’m now approaching menopause and pray daily, as I have for years, that it will show up and take all my female problems away. Weird right? Who in the world prays for menopause to begin? This girl! I have suffered enough. Many years ago I realized I would probably never have biological children but was so very fortunate, fulfilled and thrilled to have my adopted son, Lucas. The moment he arrived at birth and was put into my arms, I quit all fertility testing and was finally able to go on with my life as the mom I so desperately wanted to be. Quick history of my female problems. I had surgery on my cervix for cancerous cells at 18 years old, and a major surgery to remove as much endometriosis as they could at the young age of 26. It was wrapped around my bowel and extremely painful, my incision went right across my stomach from one hipbone to the other. I was told it would come back one day and boy has it ever. Now approaching 50 my gynecologist put me back on birth control pills a year ago to help ease my pain once again. He has referred me to a specialist that will use a robot to go in and remove whatever endometriosis, fibroids, cysts, polyps and anything else they can find that shouldn’t be there I suppose. I can not have a traditional hysterectomy due to the amount of scar tissue from my prior surgeries.
Back and neck problems: My other health issues also involve a ton of pain. But this time I’m a victim of chronic pain! If you’ve never had it, there is a difference. If you have it, I’m sorry. Every day, every minute, with some days better than others, it affects every single aspect of your life. I have not felt what it’s like to be pain-free for the past many years, that is until recently. You see, many years ago I had a couple bad car accidents and a really bad wreck on my quad (four wheeler) where I was very lucky to not break my neck. MRI’s showed I had pretty serious problems but surgery was too risky. Then when I lost my health insurance I figured I’d just medicate on bad days because the pain would come and go, and I could live with that. I thought that was a much better option than that frightening surgery. Fast forward 10 years and I found myself in so much pain at work all the time that I couldn’t take it anymore. That’s when my job of over at 10 years dealing poker at Planet Hollywood came to an abrupt stop. At that time I had to move out of my house and in with my parents. Please remember, I’m almost 50, this has been and still is very hard on us all but I am so very lucky to have them. My parents have always helped support me when needed, both emotionally and monetarily, as life hasn’t always been easy. Thank you mom and dad.
My journey: This part of my journey, back to health began one year ago. It was July of 2018 when I went to my primary care provider and when all the different testing and seeing specialists begun. I was put on more meds than I have ever seen anyone on. Pain meds, opioids of course, something for muscle spasms and a nerve pain med, antidepressants, anxiety meds, blood pressure meds, skin meds, birth control (for pain), I was having reactions to some meds also. I had hard warnings come in from the pharmacy. I had about 10 prescriptions total. I am still on more medications than I would like to be and going through more testing, as a matter of fact just this morning I had more blood drawn. My Rheumatologist is looking further into my autoimmune disorder and mid August I am scheduled to start another medication, one to suppress my immune system. This one is for lupus. You see, in the past few months I’ve been diagnosed with having an autoimmune disorder, it’s just a matter of which one, or how many I have, but signs are definitely leaning towards Lupus. I can tell you that I was so depressed, so depressed because everything I loved to do had come to an abrupt halt, my dreams didn’t seem very doable anymore since my health kept declining. It was bad, and I didn’t see a way of ever getting better. My depression and anxiety by this time were sky high, my pain just kept worsening, my prescription use multiplying, and the mg strengths rising. I was scared, depressed, and losing hope.
