Anonymous confession | CBD application journal2022-03-07
Fatigue quickly, trouble sleeping, sluggish mental work and therefore worse performance at work. It all started nearly 10 years ago. I was looking for help. Initially, I used supplements recommended for depression. They did not help. After two years, I reported to a psychiatrist. I was diagnosed with masked depression.
Masked depression, i.e. depression in which there is no depression or sadness, but with all the other symptoms that make life difficult and reduce its quality. It particularly disturbed my work, slowing it down considerably.
I started taking medications...
The first one did not work, medication changes, psychiatrist change, medication changes again and so on. I went to stochastic resonance sessions, acupuncture, electroacupuncture. I used phototherapy, Ayurvedic herbs and those recommended by Traditional Chinese Medicine. The money for this purpose was running out and there was no improvement. With time, however, my psycho-physical condition improved so much that I decided to stop taking the drug. I already thought that I was out of the grip of depression.
Nothing could be further from the truth...
It was September. In the second half of October it started to rain, it got cloudy and my mood deteriorated sharply. Then it continued to gradually descend, even as spring came. So much so that I stopped sleeping at all. My GP prescribed me a sleep medication. A friend advised me to take large doses of vitamin B12. It did not help, so I started taking the antidepressant again. One year has passed, another year has passed. Unexpectedly, my well-being has deteriorated significantly. Academic medicine offered me only pharmacology, i.e. taking more and more medications. I realized this was a road to nowhere. So I decided to look for natural solutions again. I became interested in CBD oils...
First contact with CBD
I read on the Internet that CBD oils have a positive effect on the psyche. I saw in them an opportunity for myself. I chose the INNUBIO oil for two simple reasons - they have a wide range of hemp products, which proves their extensive experience and knowledge, and they are a direct manufacturer, having their own hemp cultivation.

I started supplementing with 3 drops of Original 500 mg (5%) CBD oil. After so many years and many attempts to cope with depression, and in particular the likely fatigue that comes with it, I was not sure if it would help me. However, there was no way out. I was determined to make new attempts, to look for solutions.
January 21, 2022
I increased the number of drops I take a day to 5.
January 28, 2022
I increased the number of drops I take a day to 7.
February 4, 2022
I increased the number of drops I take a day to 10. About an hour after applying them, I felt much better. Great, something works! I know that it takes more time for me to find out if the supplementation of this oil will give a lasting effect.
February 7, 2022
The day before yesterday I did not feel well, but today I feel good again. From tomorrow, I have decided to increase the number of drops I take a day to 15. Maybe this will make me feel even better and will improve sooner.

Today I took 20 drops of 5% oil. I feel quite agitated.
February 10, 2022
Yesterdays agitation was not exactly the sensation I expected, so today I reduced the dose to 15 drops.
February 11, 2022
I reduced the dose to 10 drops. There is no stimulation effect anymore. I am feeling good.
February 13, 2022
So far, I have taken all the drops at once. Although I had already learned that it was better to divide the daily dose into at least three, I wanted to avoid possible interaction with the antidepressant drug, which I still take in the morning. Today I gave myself a full dose of CBD oil in the morning by mistake. After about an hour, I felt very well. I do not remember the last time when I worked so well and when I was in such a good mood. There was optimism and great kindness towards people.

I had read before on the internet that the effects of CBD oil interacting with my antidepressant medication could be in reducing the effects of one or the other. Since I started to feel very nice, better than before taking the antidepressant, I decided to split the daily dose into two. I started taking the first 5 drops at 10 a.m., and the next 5 drops at 5 p.m.
February 15, 2022
The good mood continues. By splitting up the dose and taking the first in the morning and the second in the afternoon, I feel good all day.
