Hi there my lovelies as you know I’ve got a significant number of complex health conditions. One such condition is a progressive lung disease named Bronchiectasis. I have been shielding to an extent (very much like the current Covid pandemic shielding arrangements) since 2013.
For people who are here for the first time.. I nearly died twice back in 2013, as a result of Double Pneumonia and Severe Sepsis which turned into Sepsis Shock. Twice…
As I had been admitted with Bacterial Pneumonia then later while recovering from the first bout I contracted another double viral pneumonia again in my lungs. This spread around my body and I received acute kidney injuries.
I had a number of complications which included Pulmonary Embolisms. Damaged heart and lungs with bilateral scarring. This left a cyst on my kidney again a result of the trauma.. along with Anxiety and PTSD from the experience.
Other complications included Critical Illness Polyneuropathy(CIP) and Costochrondritis which became chronic and its extremely painful to breathe yawn sneeze cough and burping even laughing.
I have been speaking to the Dr about these ongoing issues and she’s doing what she can by referring me to the endocrine specialist team as well as a neurologist and a lung specialist.
I told her about I’ve seen a Harley Street and I’ve got a cannabis prescription. She said That’s great! enthusiastically and she said she really appreciated me telling her. So I told her about the Project T21 study I’d also signed up for.
This is in order to help Drug Science who is working on Project T21 present a comprehensive database of scientific evidence proving the efficaciousness of Cannabis. Cannabis Based Medicines (CBMs)
Unfortunately I ended up having a Hypoglycemia attack while I was talking to her so much of what I wanted to say went out my head.
I couldn’t concentrate on what we was discussing. I had agreed to catch up with her in two weeks time. So I will talk to her about it again.
I’d also have a couple of weeks of Cannabis medicine inside me.
I can breathe in and out with no pain. I also feel like I can get a pretty decent breath in. Like I get a good lung full of air.
Very little hurts and it’s great..
I don’t feel angry violent paranoid or aggressive or any of those stereotypical negative behaviour people have labelled to cannabis to be.
I feel happy to be able to breathe without the constant stabbing tearing pain😁🥰💗✌️🌱
Update.. whilst writing this I ended up in hospital after having a lung infection an unstable RH attack which left me needing rehydrating and I had to stabilise my glucose levels with food. Plus oral and IV antibiotics and fluids along with antisickness to stop the vomiting.
Below are some interesting links with more information about alternative CBM’s .. Watch this space as I’ve got something coming up…! ❤️ if it works out well. I’ll be very excited to share more with you lovely people xxx ❤️ 💚 💜
