I remember at the the age of 17, I had my first panic attack. I had no idea what was happening...
And honestly I don't remember it happening again until I was about 1 yr and a half sober (some years later).
And I mean, it happened every single day.
I couldn't drive peacefully to work without feeling overwhelmed. I hated being in large crowds, which stopped me from doing a lot of things I loved. Meetings, family get-togethers, any places or people that were new to me, was a no.
I literally stayed cooped up in my house because I was afraid of having an episode.
So like most of us do, I contacted a doctor. I was very honest from the get go. I'm in recovery, so please don't give me anything crazy. I went through about 3 different pharmaceutical medications. For the first week or so I was fine, until.... the attacks came back.
So I went back to the doctor and they ended up increasing my dose which ended up with me being very depressed. I stayed locked up in my room at this point.
My joy was just, gone.
So my doctor changed it again, and again, same thing, worked for a little then I was back at square one. Same cycle ... again .. no relief ...again.
I then made a decision to not back track. I knew she'd increase my dose and honestly, I didn't want that. I was at a point in my life that I no longer wanted to be on medication. Period.
I started doing some research, and found Mountain Pure CBD. My life has completely transformed.
I have my confidence back. I no longer hide out because I'm scared to have an attack.
I remember the first time I knew it was working; I was attending my son's Honors Day program at school. A friend of mine asked me to save us some seats, and I was like oh goodness, I'm going to have to stand in this line with all these people I don't know, and sit in this big ole gym, by myself, with all these strangers.
But I got out my car, stood in that line, and saved those seats. CONFIDENTLY. It was AMAZING!!
Not to mention I actually hold conversations with strangers now.
I don't walk looking at the ground anymore.
I attend meetings again!!
CBD oil has seriously saved my life.
I spread the word every chance I get because this little gem shouldn't be a secret!!! Love each and every one of you who has helped me and answered any and every question I've ever had!
