As its name suggests, Thai kratom is a strain native to Thailand. This highly sought-after strain is also one of the most accessible, and is available in green, white, and red vein varieties. The effects will be dictated by the vein colour, but, as all three are available, it is really down to the user as to which one is most suitable. Thai kratom provides an initially stimulating feeling, even in small doses, and settles into a soothing and relaxing sensation that lasts quite some time.Hi all...
It's been a long while since I've posted. I came here today with a heavy heart after reading lovemyson1 post about her son passing...there but for the grace of God go I. Yes, it could be any of us. I hope all will wrap their loving arms around her in support.
Just wanted to post a brief update that we are still allowing our middle son to live with us lest he be homeless like he was for a number of years.
He is working a couple of days a week and insists on going to the smoke shop not only for his vaping but for Kratom. I know very little about this substance but am concerned!
Seems his leaning towards addictive substances is never far away.
He can't work very many hours for health reasons but he does work enough to afford this Kratom. Do any of y'all have experience with yours using this? Should I be worried?
It sounds like your son is seeking people he can relate with, that he doesn't have to hide anything from. Being an addict and not having a community of people who get it, well that can be a very lonely placeThank you Triedntrue...
Yes...long family history particularly with alcohol. And yes even more difficult to understand when dear husband and I abstain. I won't even use NyQuil unless I think I'm dying from the Flu! And when I had a uterus ablation procedure several years ago, they wanted to give me a bottle of pain pills but I explained that I have addiction problems and only needed a few. I take it very seriously. It is a condition and I must be responsible for it! I wish my middle son felt the same.
Copa...if you read this, I want you to know I totally hear you and am as perplexed by the homeless draw as you are! My son told me last week that he was thinking about visiting his old homeless community in California. Do what?
I said, "Your grandmother is vacationing in France right now...you do NOT go on vacation to a homeless community!"
The deprivation and self destruction all around...what in the world is he thinking???
I don't get it! We live in a beautiful inviting home outside the city limits with mom and dad and 2 dogs that adore him a job his dad has provided etc etc etc but it is not enough! Someone help me understand. It just makes no sense. And he has always lived in a very clean environment too!
Anyway...he is a mess! I'm so relieved my older son got it together and regularly attends AA. Daughter is still working on her Masters degree in...Family counseling and is also a licensed massage therapist.
If I could help to get this one son to see the light...my life really would be complete!
I am so sorry that your son passed away. I didn't realise this was an old post. You must miss him dreadfully. I hope you can find some peace somehow, until the day you can be together againali77…
Sadly we lost my beautiful son last Thanksgiving morning. He was with his homeless community in California. He was on Meth on the highway at 4:50 in the morning with no shoes on. He was hit by an illegal immigrant who of course did not possess a license to drive.
I am still grieving this tragedy. He had the biggest heart and wanted to evangelize the homeless. Sadly his addiction won out.
I know he loved me so much. I wish a mothers love could save a beloved addicted son. I miss him so very much.
My husband and I tried everything to help him but he made the final choice. As I have said before…free will sucks for God and sucks for us as parents too.
I think of my son all of the time. The pain of missing him will never go away till I see him again.
I love my sweet son forever and ever.
When I was using, I didn't even really understand what my pain was. I just felt awful and decided to run away from it using drugs. My choice was oxycodone. I think I was on it for around 2 years but I've been on many many drugs. More then I can even count. started at around 17-19 and was on them near constantly until I was 22. I started using because of my anxiety, I found it nearly impossible to go out in public or have any sort of meaningful conversation with anyone without feeling immense stress. So I turned to weed to try help. After I was on that for a year or so I decided to quit, I think that was the starting point for my addiction. Because I used weed to cope with my anxiety, I'd now forgotten how to cope without it. It was a spiral from there until I ended up on oxycodone, I was now using that to cope with the severe PTSD I'd given myself from awful experiences I had during the peak of my drug usage, mainly hallucinogens.How were you able to move past your pain?
Thank you for posting.
