Keeping Warm & Happy in the Pacific Northwest

Those of us who live in the Pacific Northwest (PNW), live under a near constant cover of clouds and rain that last over 300 days a year (depending on where you are up here). If you are up here, chances are you don’t mind that. Chances are, you love those rainy days where you smell the wet fir trees while their branches shield you from the majority of the rainfall. Perhaps you might also be a Twilight fan, or definitely have heard of it. Most likely you quietly shame the “out of state” expats who have moved into your town, hiking up your housing prices and causing the majority of the accidents on the road!!—- Oh, excuse me. I got carried away there. Regardless if you love it here or are too pour to move, one thing 90% of us have in common are low vitamin D levels. In fact, it’s a well known thing around here (perhaps only to those from here *insert smug smirk and side eye).

Coffee Is SO Overrated – Top 4 Reasons Why

I was always that odd one who always declined coffee when offered. Though when I was trying to impress my boss at a new job, I would always accept it and put on my best poker face when drinking it— Now that I think about it, those asshats didn’t deserve such dedication from me. Never again will I pretend to like something to impress anyone–but I’ll save that for another post. Anyway, the point is, I hate coffee. Always have, always will. Why? No clue. Just not tasty on my tongue/tastebuds. What can I say. Therefore, naturally, I had to find an alternative to coffee so that I could survive that hour commute into Portland or that alternative that would help me survive the 2PM energy crash. Yes, that’s a thing.

A Routine You Oddly Look Forward To

Why do we get excited about simple things like these (give or take)? Well, I dug into the psyche to figure that one out. Aka, I sought out professionals and their answers to this curious thing.

Stacy’s Mom’s Tea

My kratom tea is a need in my life. Not a want. Not an option. Not an occasional recreational enjoyment. It is the one thing that helps relieve some of the chronic issues I have to live with.
And many are in my exact situation. Many of us feel the need to conceal this truth so we are not judge or misunderstood. Moms like me, business women, that soccer mom down the street–this is our morning cup of “coffee”. We hide our consumption as if our tea was laced with vodka.

The Hidden Kratom Consumers

“The image of wealthy moms slurping kratom tea in lieu of a cappuccino, or trendy Bay Area residents popping kratom pills socially just for its mild, mellow body high, cuts strangely against the dire tone of most government reports on kratom.” – Wired.

“A third of our clientele are looking for a caffeine-free alternative to get them through their day,” Day says. “I’m talking soccer moms.” Day is the owner of Clean Kratom Wellness Center Denver’s 1st and largest Kratom Dispensary.

Mid Day Dose When Living in Pain

There is no one on the face of this dying earth that knows how it feels to have a “bad day”, unless they too have tried to live a day while battling chronic pain. It’s hard, even as a working mom to not find myself slightly annoyed when hearing other mom’s say they have it so hard. No. I agree that it’s hard for you, but remember it could always be harder. It still feels good to vent, which is what we all do and what we ALL should welcome a listening ear to because we are human and we all have our days that feel shitty.

Moms with a Chronic Illness along with a Newborn (who is also colicky) – How to survive!

Introducing a Mini-Series here on Kratom Girl YouTube channel on tips and advice for getting through normal life situations but with a chronic illness. This video is about Moms w/ a Chronic Illness to Newborns (who are also colicky) —- Very little is found on YouTube in support of mothers who have a colicky baby but who also lives with a chronic illness/pain. I live with a chronic illness (fibro, neuropathy, and degenerative discs disease), so having a newborn baby while dealing with a lot of daily pain is HARD. I didn’t have much help at all, let alone advice that actually was for a mom like me.
