Jeff and I have been married for 21 years and we have 3 beautiful daughters. We found Kratom after Jeff had knee surgery and was prescribed hydrocodone for “pain management”. Jeff took the medication as directed and when it was time to stop he said he “felt like he was dying”. My brother introduced us to Kratom and Jeff used it successfully for the hydrocodone withdraw and lingering pain.
My Kratom story started after 20 years of experiencing joint pain, swelling and redness, I found Kratom to help with the pain and the depression that came with it. I used to take the max daily dose of Ibuprofen during flare ups that sometimes lasted weeks. I became nervous of the effects the ibuprofen was having on my body when I started to have stomach problems every time I took the ibuprofen, which resulted in an ulcer. As a result of being in pain, being a mom of three beautiful daughters, a wife and working full time I became very fatigued and would sleep any time I could fit it in. My doctor prescribed me Ibuprofen (16k deaths a year linked to Ibuprofen) for the pain and antidepressants (horrible side effects) for the depression. I have been taking Kratom for five years and I am able to function normally and I have the energy I need to be a mom, a wife and follow my passion to help people like us.
