We’re a husband and wife team, named Joe & Merry. We built our website, www.cbdhelpsyouandme.com because we want to share with the world what CBD is and how it can help you in so many ways. It can help you with pain, all kind of health and medical conditions, as well as just a great addition to your overall health and well being. We’ll share news and testimonials via articles and videos.
My name is Merry. What first got us interested in this journey, was the fact that I was born with an unbelievable amount of birth defects, a lot of which weren’t even discovered until later on in life. Through the years, I’ve had 23 operations, lung cancer, I have a debilitating chronic pain that I’ve had more than 1/2 of my life, and now I find out that I have degenerative disc disease along with a tethered spinal cord. You can’t really make this stuff up.
Needless to say, I was seeing a pain management specialist and he was giving me everything under the sun. I was literally prescribed Motrin, Tizanidine, Hydrocodone, Percocet, and Morphine, and others all at the SAME TIME! The problem with that was that I could not function! I mean I just felt spacey taking just a couple, I couldn’t imagine taking all of them (unless I had that chronic pain…then I’d do anything to make it stop). So, at the time, being a mom of three younger adopted children, I knew things couldn’t keep going the way they were going. I felt like I was looking down the end of a gun. One barrel stood for constant pain and the other for “Spacey Merry”. In other words, I’d either be in pain or out of it due to the medications that they had prescribed to me. Either way, that meant I’d miss out on my kids’ life. And there was NO WAY I was going to do that! Seriously, I’d worked so hard to get them in the first place (but that’s another story).
With all of that on my mind and all of the pain in my body, I set out to find a natural way to deal with my pain. A few things seemed promising, but didn’t really work. What proved to help, time and time again was CBD. What’s funny is I was so reluctant to try it at first because I didn’t want that “high feeling”. Seriously, that’s no different than the drugs. Plus, the smell of THC used to make me nauseous. As it turned out, I had nothing to worry about. THC and CBD are not the same thing; they’re two different parts of the plant and CBD helps my pain more than anything else, without me getting that “spacey or high feeling”.
Now I can type! 🙂 But, more importantly, I can play with my kids and spend the day with my family without constantly complaining about being in pain! My husband, Joe, was so amazed at what CBD did for me that he said we needed to share this with others. We’ll share news, clinical trials, testing results, and testimonials via articles, documents, and videos.
