The Comfort of Weighted Blankets

The comfort of a weighted blanket is a 21st Century Design but a 19th Century feeling! The heavy homemade quilts on a bed in a room with crisp, cold air, heated by a fireplace or wood heater is definitely from an era gone before. These quilts are what the weighted blankets bring to mind.

Feeling the Comfort of Weighted Blankets

The comfort of a weighted blanket is a 21st Century Design but a 19th Century feeling! The heavy homemade quilts on a bed in a room with crisp, cold air, heated by a fireplace or wood heater is definitely from an era gone before. These quilts are what the weighted blankets bring to mind.

A well built weighted blanket is fashioned in a modern factory with state of the art equipment to bring together the pockets of Premium Glass Beads in fine, durable stitching.

What is not built in the factory but comes with the Blankets is the Feeling of Being Hugged! I can see why a baby sleeps better when it is bundled! The feeling of being wrapped warm and safe is a true need in all of us I think.

These blankets are good for Anxiety, RLS, AUTISM, Insomnia, Bipolar,  and other things I don’t have personal experience with so I can’t speak to much more.

10% of body weight
10% OF BODY WEIGHT FOR SAFETY

10%  to 15% OF BODY WEIGHT FOR SAFETY

Some weighted blankets are fifteen pounds, twenty pounds, and some are twenty-five pounds for you to purchase according to your weight and bed size. Do be careful to not buy too large for a child so as to overpower them! I have one for children here for seven pounds.

It is best for the blanket to be no more than 10% to 15% of a person’s body-weight for safety. Body-weight for the person using the weighted blanket is more important than the bed size which is normal with a blanket.

If you or the person you are purchasing the blanket for is a child or a sick weak patient, then you need to think twice about the size or the purchase for these weighted blankets are heavy.

GETTING A GOOD FITTING BLANKET

What makes the blanket pockets fold carefully around you and give you a soothing hug as you calm and go to sleep also makes them heavy. Moving a lot in your sleep will require a wider blanket than a quieter person needs, while most people settle down under the blanket and lie still.

The weighted blankets are of all different prices and sizes as you will find when you click on one and go to KOHL’S. Each one has quite a lot to say about it’s good points to help you buy it. 

Read each one you choose before you buy, but most have a 365 Day Refund Policy. Please Shop Wise and Enjoy Your Blanket!😃

Opioid Withdrawals Over? Sixth Day

Today is the sixth day of full withdrawals and I am wondering, are opioid withdrawals over? Yesterday was a better day than the day before.

Are Opioids Withdrawals Over? Sixth Day

Today is the Sixth Day of Full Withdrawals and I am wondering are opioid withdrawals over? Yesterday was a better day than the day before, and I felt like writing and thinking. The amazing thing is sleeping all night for the first time in many years, in fact, I don’t remember when?

I did not waken in terrible pain, and thank God that has not happened since I started taking the CBD oil! So, I am going to stay thrilled with CBD! There are no cravings for the opioid Oxycodone, and the physical symptoms of my body throwing off the drug are mild and controllable.

I have helped my body and CBD oil control the symptoms with what works for me under stressful conditions. I considered the flu-like symptoms though they were moderate like they were the real flu and took over the counter flu, fever, and diarrhea medications. The ones that I usually took with my prescribed medications.

Opioid given by prescription for 28 years.

Craving the Opioid or the Narcotic 

Lest you think I don’t know what craving is or am lying to you about not craving the opioid or narcotic, I was on them both for twenty-eight years and depended on them like life’s breath! I became so completely done with what I needed so seriously depending on a physician’s decision to say “yes” or “no” with his pen that I had enough!

February 25, 2018, was the last day I took Diazepam (Valium), forever, God willing! I don’t ever want to go back on them, they are so seductive and quickly addictive. That has been five months! I’m here to tell you those first two months were long months.

Mentally, I still have thought flashes when I think “Now, would be a good time for a Diazepam!” But I quickly shove it aside with a “You are doing just fine, hang in there!” and I do okay!

With my pain and anxiety like it is or less, I am so completely thankful for what CBD has done for me already, and what it is doing!

Smoking is addicting!

Addicted and Craving Nicotone

I want to write and I can’t because I have to get up and go to the computer to put my e-cigarette batteries on to charge. That is what a craving does! It interferes in all aspects of your life! I know because I have been smoking cigarettes since the age of thirteen. Since I didn’t quit until the age of sixty-three, that is a lot of years of smoking!

In the past, I have done all kinds of horrible things with my cigarettes! I have accidentally burnt my children with them! Do you know what that will do to a child and mother? Always, I made sure I had cigarette money, before medicine! Thank God, I never had to choose where my children’s food was concerned!

Vaporing has nicotine and it is addictive.
Vaporing Has Nicotine!

Smoking – Vaporing e-Cigarettes?

So now for four years, I have been smoking e-cigs (and my Granddaughter says vaporing), and it is not as satisfying as the real thing, but they have enough nicotine. I do not burn anything and there are no ashes or second-hand smoke. All to the good!

Once my best friend’s daughter had to go to a rehab facility for helping her come off of some drugs and they made cigarettes one of her drugs. She was able in a month’s stay to take care of all of her drugs except the cigarettes.

Paula was told cigarettes were on the same addictive level as heroin and as hard to kick! I believe every bit of that! I have walked miles to have a cigarette, and in my fifty-one years of smoking, did many things I am not too proud to tell.

Anxiety In A Jar
Opioid Addiction Anxiety or SAD

For years I could have been having Opioid Addiction Anxiety or Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD), and, I don’t know how much of which! Searching for opioid withdrawal symptoms I found some symptoms for long-term opioid use. The first one on the list was severe anxiety, and the second was diarrhea!

Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) Diagnosed Age 4

When I began medication at the age of thirty-nine, my anxiety was severe. Social Anxiety Disorder from the age of four was diagnosed. I have clear of recollections of “Show & Tell” in Nursery School, wherein I could not participate, and stand in front of all of those other children and show my toy. I had my first anxiety attack and was physically sick, so my teacher took me outside.

If your child gives you reason to think they are coping with some form of anxiety problem, by all means, help them. Start with your pediatrician, or if you don’t use one, your family doctor. Anxiety can begin in the cradle for the child can be born with Social Anxiety Disorder.

Children Also Have Anxiety.

Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD)

Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) is a form of Autism in most cases and the child is born with SAD as they are born Autistic. So much work is being done today with Autistic patients including SAD patients, physicians are learning new characteristics every day.

I and my three sisters have Social Anxiety Disorder, and now, my granddaughter was born autistic. Three of us had childhoods where we plainly showed forth signs of SAD for diagnosis. Of course, we were not diagnosed in the 1950’s and 1960’s.

Showing seeking love, unable to accept love easily.
Seeking Love, Unable To Accept Love Easily

Severe Social Anxiety Disorder

I can only clearly write of my own experience so that is what I shall do. There is a clear striving for love with a lack of ability to accept affection and believe they are loved! You will see a seeking of acceptance and approval without the ability to accept praise or be the center of attention graciously. They are embarrassed.

For a SAD baby a little noise can become too much input to handle. They can’t process it and will shut down and sleep through it, then finding that impossible, will cry and cry their way through it. Stop the input. Start it back, one thing at a time.

Instrumental music with few instruments is a good choice for nap time. Mother, Father, or another person well-known to the child, softly touching their back is a good thing. Try building clean, soft patterns to which the child will become accustomed.

Opioid emotional withdrawals can take many forms.

Afternoon Seventh Day Full Withdrawals

This post has a lot of stuff in it! I started it on the morning of the Sixth Day of Full Withdrawals from Oxycodone. I am finishing it in the afternoon of the Seventh Day of Full Withdrawals and my internet has been down for two days.

Having had no one to talk to about withdrawals, medications, and duration of symptoms, I feel very alone. I am not alone although I am wishing for people informed about withdrawals to talk to now. If my internet comes back up I can contact my internet doctor. It’s time to talk to people about how the CBD oil is helping me and how it helped them.

CBD Pain Rub with Emu Oil is good to help me with my pain.

Lyrica and CBD Oil

Mestinon is my medication for Myasthenia Gravis, and I take Lyrica for the severe Fibromyalgia nerve pain and neuropathy. Now Lyrica and CBD oil are my basic medications for pain, because the only time I was out of them, I suffered terribly.

CBD oil has done so many good things for me, out of all of them keeping the intense pain out of my first thoughts of the morning is why CBD is the most treasured! Second, is that I can see clearly instead of double-vision which made it difficult to read and write.

June is Myasthenia Gravis Awareness Month and I have this disease.
Myasthenia Gravis

Myasthenia Gravis and Opioid Withdrawals

There is a muscle connecting your eyes that allows them to synchronize and focus for you. With Myasthenia Gravis this muscle loosens and you lose focus and see double.

Some may have put the clearing of vision first, but they are not aware of the degree of pain I dealt with on a daily basis. If I overslept a six-hour medication time I woke in bone-searing pain that had me in tears. CBD oil drops are making life without pain and opioids possible!
