CBD for Fibromyalgia: Is it Effective, Safe, or Legal?

CBD for Fibromyalgia: Is it Effective, Safe, or Legal?


WordPress’s Happiness Engineers are not making me HAPPY!

I have been trying to get things straightened out for quite a while and it isn’t working. I am paying for 2 domains and not only were they both pointing to this blog I have been going back and forth with them about the fact that I paid for 2 domains and expect my blogs to point to them. I did finally get the other blog redirected to the right blog, but even after paying early for the domain it is still not pointing to “”. This is pure nonsense. Soon I will be telling them to take a flying leap and refund my money. I don’t have the time nor the inclination to deal with this at this point in my life. I also don’t have the money to be wasting on a Non-Domain blog that isn’t working.

Update – Dad’s stroke

My dad is a private person, but this is my space to share with my friends and family bits and pieces of my life in addition to other things.

Stroke on the right side affects the left side, his dominant side unfortunately. He wasn’t found in time to reverse it in any way. One of the things I worried about when I moved out, but it was time for me to take care of myself as he won’t be here forever. He is 86 now and besides the stroke was still going strong. Independent which still surprises everyone of his caregivers at the hospitals.

He moved from the regular hospital’s stroke center to an Acute Rehab facility. It is a 30 minute drive one way and which I make every day and stay at least til my sister arrives after work and sometimes longer. This is hard on me physically due to my own limitations.

The good thing is that my dad had everything drawn up legally to allow us to handle things including his power of attorney. My sister is the main name and I am secondary although we are handling things together.

As for his health, he is struggling but we are told this is normal for a stroke. He has good and bad days.


Off-line for awhile. Family emergency.

Spending days and nights at hospital. Not me this time. Catch you on the flipside.


In the hospital again. Demolished my end table.

Severe vertigo and landed on my table crushing it (cheap Walmart). Hurt my hip and arm. Passed out and woke up on the table. 2nd night in hospital and running tons of tests.

What is a “STOP” sign?

Well here in America it is a red octagonal sign that says stop on it and means stop, cease, desist. Well it is supposed to. Nowadays it means speed up and beat out the car in the right of way lane. Oh yeah and you are just checking to see if your brakes will work at the last minute. What the hell. I almost got t-boned as they call it around here as the car with the stop sign realized at the last minute he wasn’t going to make it out in front of me. I had the damn right of way. Freaking moron (being polite here).

Now the cops are too busy monitoring constructions sites that are everywhere or taking coffee breaks in groups in some parking lot or another. America is out of control.

I just had an accident less than 2 months ago and unfortunately that was my fault and I am not completely sure what happened. I can’t even find the spot. I really hate driving.
