A Different Kind Of Pain Management

A Different Kind Of Pain Management
Beauty Brite Disclosure

When constant pain and aches are part of your every day you are always looking for a different kind of pain management. I’ve never liked being on medication constantly and that’s when I started looking for something new.

Car accident 2016

It’s been nearly four years now since my life was turned completely upside down. A seemingly normal day came to a crashing halt when my family and I were struck head-on by a drunk driver at 3 pm in the afternoon, forever changing my life. I still don’t remember very much, and I doubt that I ever will, in retrospect is probably the best. I remember leaving work that afternoon to take my kids to the local pumpkin festival. The next thing I remember waking up completely unable to move.

I was told there was a car accident, and that I have broken several bones. I didn’t care, all I cared about at that time was where were my children and were they ok. I remember I must have asked where they were over a hundred times. Looking back, I’m sure that also had something to do with the concussion I had. Turns out the concussion was my least serious injury. Of all four limbs, there was only one that wasn’t broken.

My left arm was so mangled that I now have a plate and 8 screws in it, My right wrist was broken and now has a pin. My right knee had a laceration down to the bone, ( had it been any worse they said I’d have lost the leg). My right heel was by far the worst of the broken bones I had. My heel was shattered, the doctor said that it looked like a bomb when off in my heel. He also said usually the force it takes to break a heel will break persons back. So I guess you could say I was lucky.

In the span of the first week after the accident I had 5 surgeries. Before it was said and done I ended up having a total of 7 surgeries in correspondence with the accident. I was left wheelchair-bound, I spent 8 months of recovery learning to walk again. I’ve lost 50% range of motion permanently. You can read my initial thoughts on the accident in this original blog, ” Starting Over: Life After Tragedy.”

Getting my life back.

Basic CBD

So pain is something that I now live with every day. Pain management isn’t always easy, shortly after my accident I weaned myself off of all narcotic pain medication because I didn’t like the way they made me feel. I know how easy it is to become addicted, and that’s something I didn’t want to put my children though. So I started researching alternative pain management options. That’s when I found out about Basic CBD.

First let me say that I am in no way a medical professional, and all the opinions in this are my own. I have found that using these CBD products has helped with my pain management tremendously. I urge you to do your research about the products before you use, and always check with your doctor because starting something new.

A Different Kind of Pain Management.

Basic CBD THC Free

With that being said, after extensive research, I decided to give CBD products a try. Basic CBD is grown in Colorado, and are always pesticide-free. These products are also vegan and non-toxic. There are two different kinds that I have tried. The Basic: Zero THC and Basic: Full Spectrum CBD Oil. Usually, I can take the Zero THC oil and it does the trick, but on high pain days, I will take the Full Spectrum. Using the dropper take 1ML under the tongue.

Since starting Basic CBD I’ve also noticed a decrease in my migraines. After being on many different kinds of medication for my migraines I could never find anything that helped, using these at the start of a headache and laying down has now decreased the amount of time that I am out of commission from the usually debilitating migraines.

I’m really glad that I’ve finally found something to help with my pain management. I can finally start looking forward to days with limited and no pain with no side effects. This has finally given me my life back. To get your own Basic CBD be sure to visit their website, Facebook, Or Instagram.

Doodle Pant Fashion
Sea Turtle Leggings

When buying clothing for the little ones I look for things such as durability and how much range of motion they are able to achieve. You know as well as I do if something isn’t comfy and is movement restricting they are going to hate it. With Doodle Pants Clothing I don’t have to worry about that. These clothes are tailored to move and stretch with your active little one. My two year old loves running and playing outside. She climbs and hops all over with ease in her Sea Turtle Cotton Leggings. Doodle Pants are the perfect toddler fashion built for fun!

Sea Turtle 3D Hoodie

To match her leggings she has the adorable Sea Turtle 3D Hoodie. This is the perfect sweatshirt for little kids. I love that it has a zippable ” Turtle shell” on the back which is great for sticking her binky or small treasures in so she doesn’t lose them. It would even fit a diaper and wipes if you didn’t feel like carrying a diaper bag! If your anything like me fewer items to carry are a godsend.

When these two pieces are put together they make the perfect outfit. I love the fact that so much of their stuff is gender-neutral. Now your little one can be anything that they want to be and look amazing doing it. Which is exactly what kids need, to be able to be free and express them-selfs whenever they want.

A Better Smile for a Better Future.

I’ll admit that up until recently I really hadn’t given much thought to my teeth or dental health. I’d brush them like I was supposed too but it wasn’t until my middle daughter had to have dental surgery at the age of 3 did I really start to reevaluate how I looked at my teeth and smile. I had always been so self-conscious about my smile because I used to get made fun of about my teeth. I want to be able to smile fully and not be afraid to show my smile now as I get older. That means taking extra care to keep my smile healthy.

Kansas Bonanno

My middle daughter was three when we first really noticed her issues with her teeth. Like my oldest daughter at the time, we brushed and flossed did everything we were supposed to but something just wasn’t right. She ended up having to have a tooth pulled and I swore that from that day we were going to invest in our dental health more and make sure that we were using great products to help keep our dental health up to top-notch.

Bamboo Toothbrush

The company I’d like to introduce is called TreeBird. TreeBird is a great company that works to make sustainable dental products.

Great Fashion Gifts For The Holiday Season

Great Fashion Gifts For The Holiday Season
Beauty Brite Disclosure

My goodness, how are we so close to the Christmas season already! I feel like I just blinked and it was summer. With the time for giving so close, I’ve found a couple of great shops to share. These are great fashion gifts for the holiday season, and I hope you love them too. So let’s get started!

Holiday Bishop Dress

Oh Baby!

This is one of my favorite shops for children’s clothing. Feltman Brothers have by far some of the most adorable clothing I’ve seen tailored to that old fashioned style. This company created in 1916, serves and strives to bring that vintage feel to the modern-day. I for one couldn’t love their clothing more! Everything I have from the company is perfect with the highest quality material.

Feltman Brothers

When I put my daughter Iris into that adorable Short Sleeve Holiday Bishop Dress my first thought was oh my word she looks just like a doll! To give the dress that added flare you have beautiful embroidery around the collar and around the bottom of the dress. This stunning dress is so beautiful yet so simple. It really is made to accent the innocence of the child, not being over the top with frills. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good fancy dress on a baby but the old fashioned look of this dress makes me think of a much simpler time of life.

Perfect for play.

If your little one is like mine, she’s all over the place. This dress allows for a full range of motion. I have found that a lot of dresses and clothes you find that are on the dressier side tend to be really tight and doesn’t stretch. This isn’t the case with any of the Feltman Brother products I have. They truly tailor to the needs of children.

Knit Hat

I decided to pair her beautiful dress with a Holiday Knit Hat which matches the lovely coloring in the dress. This adorable hat is so soft perfect to frame your child’s beautiful face. It gives them the extra protection against the cold and keep their little ears warm.
