I get really into projects and tend to overdo it.
- Recently I was doing drywall in my bathroom all by myself.
I am a very small woman. I had to cut the pieces of drywall in half and operate a cordless drill. I ended up using my head to hold the drywall to make hte job easier. I felt myself getting tired and feeling sore. I ignored it and preserved it. Sadly that evening I was greeted with tons of back and neck pain. I have tried to take it easy, stretch and ice my body. Nothing has really helped. I am stiff and can barely move around. I can’t work out, sleep comfortably or turn my head. I tried the doctor and chiropractor. They weren’t helpful. As a last ditch attempt I went to the cannabis dispensary for me. The budtender recommended taking CBD oil for chronic pain. He said I could put it in my morning cup of tea if I wanted to. He also had topicals that were great for pain. They are like a more powerful icy hot. You put the cream directly on the affected areas. It provides a cooling effect and smells nice. I ended up buying CBD oil and the topical. I now use the oil in the morning and apply the cream multiple times a day. I feel way more loose and the pain is so much lower. I am hopeful that my body will eventually calm down. With the cannabis products helping my inflammation, I have hope of being normal again.
