We are coming towards the end of the first month of 2019 and it has been a pretty positive and calm start to this year. When I reflect back on how I felt, the headspace I was in and the destructive path I could feel myself heading down again - I am in such a better place and have such a clearer headspace.
So, as most of you are aware I suffer from anxiety and this has become something I am becoming more open about on my blog - to share my personal experience, raise my voice and hopefully raise some awareness of how mental health issues can take over and rule your life. Coming to terms with my own anxiety and finally feeling okay with the additional issues I face because of it hasn't been easy. You can feel alone and isolated and it's a pretty scary place to be. Speaking out and asking for help is the first step in your road to recovery. Not too long back I shared a post about the "decision" I made to put myself on medication, something I never wanted to do. Medication can be great for people who suffer from a range of different mental health issues but after being on medication for a little while, I came to the decision it was not right for me or my mental health. It didn't work for me and if anything I felt worse because of it. I was also referred for CBT therapy - again, this has been a way too long and negative experience for me in that I didn't feel supported by the CBT team and I just felt like they didn't understand where I was coming from. I think therapists are amazing people - it just sucks that I have had to deal with one who made me feel even worse about my anxiety and very much made me feel like it was my fault. Like I was to blame. So... where do I go now?

I was very much at a low point when I came across a company that specialises in the production of CBD oil treatments specially designed to help and aid people who suffer with anxiety and the symptoms people often forget are related to it. Anxiety is all encompassing and can have a drastic effect on every part of your life. A biggie for me was feeling on edge, overly tense muscles (particularly in my neck and shoulders) and insomnia. Before Christmas insomnia was taking over my life, I was averaging around two hours sleep a night, which made me feel drained, exhausted and made my anxiety worse because I felt like I never got a rest from my anxiety filled thoughts. So, I reached out to Salve Herbal, a  CBD company and they very kindly gifted me their 5% CBD oil to try for myself and see what I thought...

The biggest difference I noticed after using the CBD oil for the past few weeks is that my insomnia has virtually gone. I have slept all the way through the night, which for me is huge! This alone has had such a drastic improvement on my mental health - I feel more energised, calmer and ready for the day in the morning. Sleep is such a key factor in our health that we take for granted and to finally have a regular and healthy sleeping pattern again is the best feeling! My levels of anxiety throughout the day has decreased and overall I just feel mentally happier and healthier. I often compare having anxiety to walking around with a dull cloud over my head - constantly filling it with negative thoughts and constant worries. Right now, my mind feels so clear, calm and I feel like myself again, which I haven't been able to do in such a long time! The pain from muscle tension has reduced slightly as well, obviously I still feel it occasionally because I have very tense muscles but overall it is way more manageable. The only downside that I have noticed with using this product is the taste - that alone was almost enough to put me off continuing to use it! I can't put into words what it tastes like but its a very acrid taste that just is not pleasant at all but this is something the manufacturers are aware of and working to improve! Overall though it wouldn't stop me using the product as I have seen so many of the benefits and can feel myself getting happier and mentally stronger every day.

After hearing the positive buzz around CBD oil, I was eager to try it out for myself and it has changed my life. This month has been the best I have had with my mental health for a long time and I feel like I have my life back! I'm slowly taking back control and trying situations that previously my anxiety has held me back from. I feel calmer, lighter and there is more of a balance in my life and I can't even begin to explain how freeing that is!

  1. I've been wondering about using CBD oil for a while now (I actually looked after a cat who was losing her hair from stress over the summer, and her owner had me try CBD oil and it worked like magic) but this post has inspired me to actually take the plunge. I have a decent handle on my anxiety and OCD, but I still get pulled into racing negative thoughts and deal with unpleasant anxious sensations in my body and I would love to do something about that without taking harsher meds that I don't really need right now.

    From my research it's pretty common to drop CBD into iced coffee and smoothies, so that might be a way to take it without the nasty taste :)
