FLASHES OF LIGHT, NAUSEA, VOMITING, EXHAUSTION, SLEEP 13 HOURS WHEN I NAP FATIGUE. MAXALT AND TOPIRAMATE, OTHER MEDS. THE PERSON WHO HIT US HAS TAKEN AWAY MY LIFE I CAN LIFT NO MORE THAN 3 POUNDS, CAN’T DRIVE CAN’T GROCERY SHOP, CAN’T DO WHAT I LOVED TO DO IN THE PARKS PULLING EXOTIC WEEDS OUT, TRAIL REPAIR, ETC. HOW DO I GET CBD OIL IN SAN MATEO CA. THANKS JULIE

      Hi Julie, given your medical conditions, you should be able to get your medical marijuana license in California and buy cannabis CBD oil from a dispensary. That is preferable b/c it’s safe (you know how it was grown and processed) and uses the whole cannabis plant which has more healing properties. From what I’ve read California’s medical marijuana laws are pretty liberal and it’s easy to get approved. But if that’s not an option, then there’s hemp CBD oil, which you can purchase online. There are many companies that sell it but it’s hit or miss on whether the products are any good or not. I recently reviewed Liberty Lixir 1000 mg: https://fedupwithfatigue.com/liberty-lixir-review/

    To Kayla
    Thank you for those poses; they are greatly appreciated. However, it would have been more beneficial for me to follow the text along with pictures for each pose. A couple of poses only had words that I could not follow because of my first language is not English.
    I was frustrated because the poses did not make sense. Thank you for listening; I just needed to be heard.

    Best regards,
