My first order of kratom came in the mail today. It was recommended to me by a stranger I had met in an online forum. I have had severe abdominal pain for almost two years now. After seeing several doctors, having numerous testing done, and fighting Vicodin addiction, I had nothing. No diagnosis, no cure, nothing. But how can you cure something if you don't know what it is? Needless to say, I was frustrated, angry, confused, and worst of all, depressed. Chronic pain has literally ruined my life.

I knew I had to stay away from the narcotic pain meds, but I didn't want to suffer. I started buying them off the street. I knew I actually needed them, but I was still fighting addiction. After months of Google research trying to find ways to buy the pain meds online, I came across a forum. I asked around to see if there were any herbal remedies to treat pain, other than MJ (I used to smoke when I was a teenager, but haven't smoked in years). Right away I got a response about Kratom. I was very skeptical, as I had never used and herbal remedy before.

I researched everywhere, and found everyone had the same information. It can be used as a stimulant in small doses and a pain reliever/opiate in higher doses. It felt like I had hit the lottery. I was so excited, but I had to find a reliable vendor. The same person who recommended the Kratom, also gave me a site to order it from.

I received my order today, after purchasing on Thursday. I was so excited that I couldn't wait to boil the tea, so I just ate about 5g of the powder (I ordered three different kinds, including leaves). After the first dose kicked in, I made some tea. The powder and the leaves smell great! It's too bad that the tea I had made tastes terrible!! Extremely bitter, even when mixed with Sweet 'N Low.

The outcome is wonderful. My pain is gone at the moment, and I feel great. It has an awesome opiate effect, which is what I was trying to achieve. I have always been a big fan of opiates. Not just for pain, but for recreational use. I'm more social, happy, relaxed, and eases my depression. This is truly a Godsend.
