Lyrica, Baclofen, Midodrine InI was in a severe car accident and broke my neck. My neck was broken at the 5th and 6th vertebrae, and my spinal cord was crushed and stretched. I became paralyzed from my chest downward with some use of my arms, enough to push a wheelchair but no finger function.
With spinal cord injuries come a whole host of challenges. The inability to control the bowels and bladder requires the use of rectal suppositories and catheters. The lack of physical movement can cause skin sores, skin rashes, muscle spasticity, swelling of the legs, locking joints, crooked limbs.
Often with a spinal cord injury comes with intense neuropathic pain, very low blood pressure, urinary tract infections, lung congestion, constipation and bleeding of the rectum.
I was living with many of these in the first couple years following my injury. It takes a while to adjust to life in a wheelchair to say the least.
I was on a lot of medications. Lyrica for nerve pain, Baclofen for muscle spasms, Ditropan another muscle relaxer to keep my bladder from shrinking, Midodrine for low blood pressure, aspirin to thin my blood. During and after my time in the hospital I was in almost constant pain, and suffered from depression, mood swings, chronic low blood pressure, fatigue and muscle spasms that would almost throw me out of my wheelchair.
I ate whatever I chose, breads, pizzas, cheeses, meats and coffee. I was raised with a distrust of pharmaceutical drugs, so from the beginning I tried to eliminate as many as possible down to just the essentials. I weaned off the lyrica.
I decided Id deal with the pain, and also began using cannabis to dull the pain. I started feeling sick every time I took the Ditropan, so my Doctor prescribed a milder drug for my bladder. I stopped taking the aspirin.
The cannabis kept my spasms in check, and relaxed my muscles. I had always been aware of my health, so I started eating more vegetables, and drinking vegetable juices.
My nose would plug up at night, and I was dependent on nasal sprays. So while smoking the cannabis helped me cope with the pain, and relaxed my muscles, it caused lung issues and sinus congestion.
I started using cannabis tinctures instead, but it still contributed to my sinus congestion. I had a desire to be healthier. I knew there was a better way.Jan 18, · While our president, Tim Berry, is fast working away on his new book, “The Plan-As-You-Go Business Plan” I wanted to remind people about Tim’s last book: Hurdle: The Book on Business PlanningTim says he wrote this book to “help encourage people to empower themselves and to learn the process of business planning to better /5(4).
