Happy color

Happy color is an app I found on my phone.  It is coloring by number and I find that is so calming.  I can color all day when I’m feeling stress or anxious.  This is one of the pictures I completed yesterday, it was my favorite.


CBD update

As you all know I have been taking CBD oil capsules for my anxiety.  I just wanted to update everyone on how it is working.  

It is still helping with my anxiety.  I currently take one 50 mg capsule a day, and sometimes if a stressful day, I will take another before I go to bed.

I am in the process of researching more about this oil because I get a big response from people when I tell them I take it.  Often people only think marijuana and can’t believe I would try it.  Well,  CBD doesn’t make you high or stoned at all.  In fact, in my research, I have found that CBD actually counteracts the high feeling that THC gives.  

CBD hemp oil is made from high-CBD, low-THC hemp, unlike medical marijuana products, which are usually made from plants with high concentrations of psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Because hemp contains only trace amounts of THC, these hemp oil products are non-psychoactive.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of over 85 cannabinoids presently identified in the cannabis plant and is the second most abundant cannabinoid in marijuana after THC. In hemp, however, THC is only present in trace amounts, while CBD dominates theplant’s makeup. CBD interacts with our naturally occurring systems, but is non-psychotropic, it doesn’t cause a high. This makes it a safer, less controversial alternative, while still offering significant health benefits.


I encourage everyone with anxiety to try CBD oil.  You can get capsules, gummies, oil for vaping, or oils for external use.  Let me know how it works for you!



CBD for anxiety

Highland Pharms

A couple of weeks I ordered CBD Oil capsules for my anxiety.  CBD oil is NOT the part of marijuana that gets you high.  If you get a product that contains no THC, then it is legal in the US and will not cause you to get high or pop a drug test.  This is the good stuff in marijuana that has all the great health benefits.  I have them listed at the bottom.

I got the 50 mg capsules from Highland pharms.  I am extremely impressed with this product!  I started out taking two pills a day for the fist 3 days.  One pill in the morning and one at night, this is recommended to get the oil in your system.  On the fourth day, just take one pill in the morning.  A few digestive effects will be noticed right away.  You may be gassy or have diarrhea at first.  This will go away as the CBD gets into your system.

What I have noticed since starting CBD oil.  I am more focused.  I am able to concentrate better, therefore I am more productive.  I am more relaxed.  I hosted a christmas party at my house with 23 guests and not once got anxious about anything.  I had a close call when my potatoes were showing no signs of being done on time, but it all worked out.  I am not as tense.  I drove for about 3 hours to come back to our RV.   Normally, I get very tense in the back of my neck and shoulders.  I didn’t get that this time at all.

I have already ordered two more bottles of CBD oil to take .  I am looking for another source that will hopefully be cheaper.  I will keep everyone updated!




Bay leaves for anxiety

I read that burning bay leaves will greatly reduce anxiety.  This morning I tried it.  I’m not sure of the results or not, but my house officially smells like we’ve been smoking dope.  LOL   I used a small aluminum baking pan to do this.  Try it and tell me what results you have.  It’s a cheap fix if it helps.  I wonder if I could add peppermint or lavendar to help with the smell??

These are the bay leaves I bought.  They are cheap.  Located in the Mexican section of the grocery store.





My mind is my biggest enemy


We all know I am a worrier.  I can’t help it, and my mind just seems to hold on to things and won’t let them go.  Am I really worry about something that I need to be worried about or have I just made it up in my head? These thoughts eventually become so big that I feel like I am tripping over them all the time.  I hate being like this.  My counselor once told me that when I was growing up I had to be very tuned into people around me so to make sure I didn’t upset the apple cart I learned to adapt to other people to keep peace.  So, I try to do better about this.  I try to do daily meditations, prayer, and repeat affirmations.  Most of the time this helps.  Sometimes it doesn’t.  There are things that come up and I am quickly able to let them go, but sometimes things come up and when it involves people I truly care about, I worry.  Have I done all I could to help the issue?  Have I done something to offend?  Should I call the person and try to resolve it?  Will that make it worse?  It usually does.

Today was one of those days when nothing helped.  I called my sister and voiced some concerns that I have and she very calmly encouraged me to not think about them, don’t worry about this or that, and after our conversation I did feel better.  I am always thankful for my sister and her professionalism when it comes to resolving things.  I find that we are all insecure at times, but truly we are only responsible for ourselves.  I can only fix myself.  I can’t be responsible for how everyone feels and I can’t fix everyone’s problems.
