This is indeed a Red Letter Day! After eight years of care from the Oncology Clinic, today I say goodbye to the Doctor who saved my life. His depth of knowledge , and humility to consult with two equally qualified colleagues, one from Duke, and one from West Virginia produced a cure for my cancer! For anyone suffering from cancer, the deepest and darkest fears we ever dread is the pronouncement that we have that terrible disease that robs us of our lives.
To me, my diagnosis came within three months of having a heart attack and a stroke. I did in fact, feel like it the last straw. My life was full and interesting. My husband and I were traveling during mini-vacations and life was grand. Suddenly, at age sixty four, here I was with not one, not two, but three of the worst diseases attacking me in short order.

It is hard to put a point on it but things are certainly changing on a daily basis since I began Dronabinol. Lately I have noticed more than ever, that Continue reading
Played mini-golf with our dear neighbors. It has been five years since I have had enough strength and felt pain free for over six months. The quality of my life has dramatically improved. No longer locked inside four walls..unable to move..bedridden..and dependent on my husband for basic needs. A total flip to being pain free with my use of Dronabinal..
I have found a way to enjoy and take back my life after suffering from cancer for eight years. Now cancer free, I am also pain free and nausea free using Medicinal THC. While there is little published factual information on the use of medical THC to ease the suicidal pain associated with cancer, I am using this blog to diary my own personal experience with Medical THC to bring some positive exposure to this very real change to my quality of life by deciding to use a little researched and much maligned alternative to opiates.
I have used opiates and they made me more ill. After a year of using Dronabinol, I have regained a quality of life I didn’t think possible before I began taking Dronabinol. What I once thought would screw up my brain and turn me into a zombie, has given me back a joy of living I had not felt since my cancer diagnosis.
Sometimes my prejudices have lead to poor choices and in this circumstance I was so boxed into my ever increasing misery of unrelenting pain, I simply reached out to my Oncologist’s suggestion, mainly to get relief from nausea. It was surprising to find that one month into taking my daily dose, I found myself nausea free and pain free. Who knows if anybody else would get the same relief. I never used recreational THC. Maybe it works differently with me.
With my Nursing background and knowing how hard it is to cope with the pain that cancer and its treatment inflicts on the survivor, I decided to take my revelation public and use this Blog to share my experience.
For over a century there has been a belief that Medicine is a cure and not a cause. Strange to think that the medicine that diseases such as heart disease is treated with digitalis that is deadly if not strictly formulated into a chemical compound that can make us healthy, however in its pure form, as the’the deadly nightshade’ it is lethal.
I believe the principles apply for medicinal Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) the medicinal component of Cannabis, now I have spent the past 13 months taking a daily dose of 7.5 of Dronabinol.This is the medical THC generic version. In relation to pain relief it is a game changer, allowing me mobility I had not experienced for six years. in best practice for long term outcomes, this alternative could be used instead of opiates for patients like I, for chronic cancer pain.
Personally I have taken both routes.For me it has been important to understand through my experience, that Dronabinol is not a synthetic drug. Certain parts of the plant are processed to produce a result. The big difference between Dronabonil is that IN my experience, Dronabinol maps my pain and formulates synergistic relief. Maybe because many opiates are synthetic, the body inadequately maps pain relief differently with less effective outcomes.
As the weeks go by, I am becoming increasing engaged in my environment, as opposed to when I was adminstered opiates when I just came under the influence of a chemical that changed the nature of my pain, without complete relief, and also affected my organic being, making me sick and superimposing a feeling of ill-health and dis-engagement or apathy. The opiate effect is the normal expectation, whereas the scepticism of encouraging widespread Dronabinol research and outcomes is inhibiting the expansion of use of this healthy alternative.
Only when more people start thinking about the distinct line between the recreational THC and Medicinal THC, will there be the necessary progress toward the use of opiate alternatives such as Dronabinol web link. Enjoy your day!
The hardest and most time-consuming part of setting up my Blog has been learning a whole new way of working.
After three straight months of 6 – 12 hours of sitting with my lapop, I have finally got the hang of it. THC taken as Dronabinol, used as drug to treat nausea, totally stopping my back pain and neuropathies creates pain relief and percetual changes.
THC totally stopped my pain, about an hour after I took it this morning, as it has for the past year. I immediately started working on my Blog, not thinking about the pain. It is amazing what has happened over the past threee hours. I have begun to realize and comprehend the WP Tutorials! I am beginning to have the ability to use windows more effectively. THC impairs my focus so badly that it can take ten minutes to write a sentence but somehow I have gotten here.
It takes pure grit to keep your mind together on this stuff and try to keep your thoughts from stopping you do what you have to. I am learning through Social Media how to develop my blog to share with so many of you my message out to everybody in pain. You can be cured of cancer, but if your not free from pain you are not cured. THC has cured my pain and now I feel healthy and free of any illness and eager to keep you informed how Dronabinol is changing my life and my future on a daily basis. Have an awesome kind of day.
