I use a 2.5 mg mint....around 2 pm...when my right eye starts hurting really alot...I have visual blurr, pressure, lost acuity, toxins. Eye doctors do nothing. So that lessons all that.
Its around 6 pm that my symptoms keep intensifying...they come on late afternoon and get more and more intense. So around 6: I have 2 puffs.
this: almost stops Sickness Behavior. It handles- most aspects of sickness behavior- and I simply feel ALMOST OK. But yes, I'm not pushing Intellectual Activities at that Time of Day. I relax, watch some news, then later maybe watch a show on TV.
I clean something, rather often around 11 pm: or else I just go to bed.
By sickness behavior- I mean the entire suite of how we feel that prevents us from functioning.
Nauseated, mildly, hard to eat food. No enjoyment of a meal. It even: tastes BAD. 2 puffs, nausea shifts, and I can eat, I'm hun gry and this tastes good.
Unable to leave my apartment/cave converts to: well maybe I can go do that with you...for a little while. I could go out a bit with my daughter, to a restaurant, and enjoy myself.
Anxiety: lowered generally
sleep: THC helps me go to sleep, and I'll stay asleep longer. Its still unrefreshing it seems. But I" m not tormented at 3 am any longer.
oddly: after years of thinking that THC made my blood sugar more erratic, in fact I've discovered it stabilizes it and it functions better.....
THC lowers my blood pressure, which is high-ish. Altho I can have hypo symptoms as well, somehow.
Now, I was in a real bad state- on a trip for three months visitng my daughter and I was in a real continuous PEM state that I somehow flunked managing. And my daughter (adult) is begging me to: have a hit mom.
But I just won't, unless its real bad or after six pm.
So she got me some drops and I tried those in the daytime. And what I found was: can you believe a puff of THC will end my sore throat? While drops did nothing, and I felt I was getting Strep at 2 pm every day, and by 5 pm I was: nearly Suicidal. I'll just say it. Around 5pm most days, I'd retreat to my room for a tachycardia event, lie there and consider just: Ending it All.
THC stops those thoughts entirely.
It frustrates me nobody will study this.
