    Hi Donna and all, Great posts! I went on to watch a few of the Justin Bieber episodes…loved them all.
    I’ve been using daily opioids for over 15 years for spine injury related intractable pain/ failed surgeries issues and am now trying Kratom to lessen the opioids in my system and/or be off them forever (if my pain can make the transition??). Kratom works better than the meds!! and also gives me energy which I so need because I also have Systemic Lupus fatigue!! Time will tell where it gets me. It takes a lot of research to learn how to use it but I so believe in this natural herb!!
    I hope that you are doing well.
