Quick update for my fellow chronic pain sufferers and those who have someone dear to you who needs relief. Searching the world wide web of confusion and potential answers can be frustrating and full of hope at once, right? I so very much want to be of help to some one.
So as I write this my feet are resting on my new Hummingbird. With nearly a week of using it two to three times each day, it is awesome to report that sleep is now a huge part of my nights! And I believe it is just the beginning of good things!
One more thing to share. I am back on a compounded prescription called LDN (low dose naltrexone). A friend recently brought it back to mind asking if I’d ever taken it. Wow, it rang a bell and my journal reminded me that two years ago my (then) Dr asked me to look at the above website on LDN and decide if I wanted to try it. I did and said Yes! He started me on a very low dose and within six months I was taking 4.5 mg. Soon I was no longer able to receive scripts from him. LDN was forgotten about as I moved on to try ‘new and better’ things. I’m now on a support page for LDN and have learned it can, in some cases, take longer than that to notice big changes or even get complete relief for some conditions. I strongly suggest anyone with an autoimmune issue to at least take a look at LDN. They use it at higher doses for MS very successfully. The list of uses is very impressive and it is NOT expensive. If you are on LDN, I’d love to hear from you.
Let’s keep on treadin’ on…healing can be right around the corner, down the road and most definitely when we see Jesus! Pray, and then pray more. I can’t do life…a day, a night, an hour or a moment…without it!

‘The Sovereign Lord is my strength;
he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to tread on the heights.’
