Two Birth Flowers and Birth stones this month.
Well what can I say, that’s another month away with very little change from the last 3, lets hope that the month of July starts to bring some return to normal life.
As you may know there has been a lot said about CBD Oil helping with the symptoms of ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia. I’m writing here about my personal experience and not on behalf of DGMEFM Network.
I’ve been thinking for a long time about taking CBD in some form. The decision regarding what brand to go for and what product has been a minefield. To be honest I was not keen on taking drops from a bottle or using a vaping oil and ePEN as I have never been a smoker.
I was told about coffee infused with CBD and decided to give it a try. I have nearly finished the first bag and must admit I do enjoy my first mug in the morning. Now I’ve never been a coffee snob but I do like the Colombian blend. I noticed early on even after the first mug that you chilled out a bit more and relaxed, which in turn does ease things but the pain doesn’t miraculously disappear for me but everyone is different. I have my coffee at breakfast and if need be I’ll take one in the afternoon depending on how I’m feeling. I have now also tried the drops after experiencing the coffee. I take 2 drops under the tongue just before bed and I must admit I’m getting a far better and deeper sleep. If anyone is interested send me a wee message through the Facebook Messenger or Group page and I can give you code which will give you 25% discount to the brand I use.
I am really happy with how it helps me on a daily basis, but results can be different for each person. My doctor recommended early on in my diagnosis to have a look into the benefits of CBD. If unsure always seek medical advice. I’ve been on the coffee almost 3 weeks now and will keep you posted on how it goes over the next few months.

Now usually we would have some memes, jokes or other stuff posted by members just to raise a wee smile. Only had the one this month. For the July blog can you please send something in that will raise a smile. How about something you have done during lockdown, a new hobby or craft project you have just finished. We would love to see what you have been doing. With the help and enthusiasm of two fellow members I have rediscovered the joy of art and craft. For the first time since leaving school I’ve got my art mojo back. I’m having a ball making cards for all occassions. So for next month lets all post photos of what we have been doing. If you have a skill or interest that you would like to share within the group please get in touch. We are always on the look out for new things. Don’t worry we wont kidnap you for the committee. We would love to see a new pair of hands helping in any way they can.
Well that’s it again for another month. Take it easy and stay safe. XXX
