So had my first night after taking 2 doses of CBD. Now, I'm not expecting it to work (if it works at all) after just one day....apparently it could take several days, or even a couple of weeks, to start working. However, I actually slept pretty well last night. Went to bed around 10 pm and went off to sleep almost straight away although, to be fair, I don't usually have too much trouble getting to sleep when I first get in bed anyway, and I was particularly knackered. Woke up around midnight needing the loo, then went back off to sleep pretty much immediately, which is highly unusual. And I stayed asleep until just before 4 am, which is my normal waking time, and that again is extremely unusual, normally I don't sleep ANY night for more than an hour or so at a time. Couldn't get back to sleep so got up, which again is usual for me. So I actually had about 5 or 6 hours good quality sleep last night, and feel much better for it already. No reduction in the back or hip pain, but I'd be surprised if there was after just one day of using the oil.
So a good start....if all the CBD does is help me to sleep then I shall be very happy with that - coping with pain is so much easier when I'm not dropping with exhaustion too.
Had some gut problems yesterday, which I suspect were to do with a not very nice shop bought pasty we had for lunch. We were out at the time and hungry, that'll teach me.
As I was up early, I got the washing (bed linen and towels) out of the machine (it gets done overnight on the cheap rate leccy) and put some in the tumble drier, the rest went on the washing line outside when it got light. Whether it actually dries remains to be seen.....it's sunny but very cold and very little breeze. Beautiful sunrise this morning, the sort of cold, frosty, crisp and sunny morning that makes you smile. I've also made bread dough, plus pastry for the mince pies that I'm finally getting around to making today. Am about to make the Christmas cake too....well, just a rich fruit cake really, husband doesn't like marzipan or icing so I don't use them. The cake will be fed with booze and stored away until Christmas though, or he'll eat it straight away.
