Kratom is a South East Asian plant related to coffee that has been used for centuries as a natural remedy. For years, the FDA and DEA have been attacking the availability of this plant that thousands swear by. There are those who would paint the plant kratom as if it were some dangerous, new, legal high. In actuality, many of the people who are using it are doing so because they are tired of the lack of clarity associated with opiate and opioid use.

The reasons for using kratom vary. Some studies suggest it may be useful as an adjunctive therapy for depression, anxiety, PTSD, fibromyalgia, Lyme disease as well as for weaning off opiates or opioids used for chronic pain. I am familiar with many members of the kratom community. Many of them I consider good friends. What follows are unedited testimonials from just a couple people whose lives have been improved greatly after they discovered this plant. Their stories are unique, but the situation of having found a new lease on life after choosing natural, healthy alternatives to pharmaceuticals is by no means rare.

Dijon Evans' story reveals how new guidelines related to pain management may result in certain people in extraordinary pain falling through the cracks. Dijon was actually thankful for that. If not for new guidelines, she wouldn't have been forced to seek an alternative and having found a safer, natural choice, her concern is that it remains available to her and others in the same position.

<strong><h4>Dijon Evans</strong></h4>

You have taken away my pain meds. Put me through withdrawals, without a thought of what that may be like.

I am not a slacker. I am very educated and if I had things my way, I wouldn't be taking anything. I used to be extremely active, I had plans and goals for my life.

But when I turned 16, my first real job was a lifeguard. I got my foot caught on the outside of the pool, as I went in to get a little boy. I dislocated my ankle. I had a cast put on too tight and it cut off the circulation and killed the nerves.

My leg was allowed to remain on too long, and the nerve damage spread, it's now full body, including trigeminal and ocular nerves- as well as now being documented in my brain.

It's shutting down my organs one by one and it will eventually kill me. It has caused me to have gangrene, pulmonary embolisms (2), 9 bouts of osteomyelitis. I have such brittle bones because of the nerve damage that I have 9 broken/compression fractured vertebrae, an artificial hip and my other hip and knee need to be replaced.

That's not even mentioning the amputations…

It's called CRPS 2 w additional complications, that's what the cast caused.

There's not one aspect or person ( family/ friend/ co-worker/ or even doctors) that hasn't been negatively affected by the pain that I deal with every second, of every minute, every hour of every day - week- month and year since I was 16.

I am now 54 years old.

However, you actually did me a favor by helping me find other methods of pain relief through your false opioid prescription action.

Until now…

Yes, this nerve damage is going to kill me, and I've been on death's door far too many times to count!

Because of your "new guidelines," I don't fall into your terminal cancer pigeonhole. So

even if I wanted to be back on the opioid, I wouldn't be able to.

Because my doctor and medical coverage just dropped all of the pain management patients, I found something " other than opioids."

Kratom lets me have a clear head. Helps with the pain, (far more than the "opioids"!).

I am able to get myself out of bed [the past 10 years I've been primarily stuck there]. NOW I can get into my wheelchair and into the front room.

I have been sincerely smiling. Laughing. Trying to find a way to do a hobby or something.

At least I have a desire to try, instead of arguing with the doctors about quality of life/ vs no quality of life.

I take a total of 1 1/2 tsp a day, of kratom. Not all at once.

No, it doesn't get rid of all of the pain, but I am able to tolerate what I have. I tolerate it far more than I ever could have on the pills!

Now, because big pharmaceutical companies are backing the ban- you are going to try and take away what life I have been able to get and appreciate since April.

I'm just wondering how long it's going to be before you are willing to be paid to look the other way while " us troublemakers that are responsible for the opioid crisis anyway" are just done away with altogether!

There's not one valid certification of death that kratom (alone) is responsible for.

We've already seen suicide rates rise since people have had their medications stopped.

Each day more and more people are finding themselves in that place of not having any medications.

Cold turkey. No warning, just stopped.

I had lost all hope.

I had a plan, and I was putting everything in place.

That's when I heard about Kratom.

I learned, I researched, I had incredible help from JJ, Kym Brown and Jessica McNiickle as well as a very supportive group of people, I listened and became overwhelmed with fear.

When I realized what I was afraid of, I cried. I cried that deep gut-wrenching cry; because I was starting to feel "HOPE."

I didn't recognize it at first because I'd lost all sense of hope.

I started kratom, very doubtful of what I'd been hearing, but I didn't want to die. So what would it hurt to try.

I found I HOPE.

I found laughter.

I discovered this mystical "quality of life" and now you want to take it away.

So a billion dollar industry can put more billions in all of your pockets…

At the cost of how many lives????

Really?

Is it worth It?

I know that you don't have to worry about not being able to function.

To sleep.

To eat.

To just live, find some semblance of a life.

To laugh.

Smile. And To Find HOPE.

To once again see beauty, feel joy and experience the intense differences between colors.

Why don't you do an experiment: for one month… Just one.

Put yourselves in a wheelchair, tie your legs together so you can't use them.

Get up, get dressed, fix your food, go to work ( no servers, no drivers, nobody doing anything for you….) It's only 30 -31 days.

In fact: get by on 876 a month… take buses, go from pharmacy to pharmacy, and doctors office - pay copays, rent. You know that kind of thing.

Do it while you're in so much pain, you have to remember to breathe

.. all the while remaining by yourself because you are just as tired of talking about the pain and "what now" things, as everyone else is, hearing about it.

Only 30 days. ..

It's Not a lifetime, like, we are subjected to.

The following testimonial was submitted by Nina Ajdin. Nina learned the hard way how FDA approved treatments can wreak havoc on your life. Topical Steroid Withdrawal is a painful and debilitating condition. Because of prescribed medication for her skin condition, she has spent years trying to recover. Kratom may be under fire currently from the FDA, but thousands of the people who are using it do so because they don't want to have to resort to medications that have upended their life.

<strong><h4>From Nina Ajdin:</strong></h4>

Imagine for a moment being someone who's skin feels like it's on fire twenty-four hours a day. Your entire body feels as if acid has been poured over it. It looks like you've survived third-degree burns. Your skin is raw and leaks a fluid that smells much like decomposing flesh. Your room is covered in your own skin that's fallen off of you as if someone took a cheese grater to it.

You can't leave your home due to the pain, embarrassment, shame, and fear of infection (which by the way, happens often.) It’s terrifying to look in the mirror because you don’t recognize your own reflection.

You sit in the bathtub for up to ten hours a day to try to cool your skin down. Even then, the agony is indescribable. The pain is so horrible all you can do is scream and cry. Life is unbearable. There's nothing helpful doctors and medical professionals can do to relieve

your suffering. In fact, these symptoms are caused by the medicines they prescribed and that are so readily available over-the-counter.

This has been my reality for over 3.5 years. My name is Nina Ajdin. I'm 27, and I live in Illinois. As young as I am, I have

literally been near death countless times. I'd been in and out of hospitals with life-threatening infections and seizures and was admitted as an inpatient to a psychiatric hospital for suicidal ideations three times. I suffer from a condition called Red Skin Syndrome/Topical Steroid Withdrawal. This is an iatrogenic condition caused by the use of topical steroid creams, such as hydrocortisone. I'm currently in recovery and doing better, but there is still a long road ahead of me. I still suffer both physically and emotionally. The anxiety and depression can be crippling. The thought of another flare is never far from my thoughts.

My memories for the last few years have been primarily things I'd rather forget such as the pain, the isolation, the despair. The

thought of going to a doctor knowing the result of living this way is caused by their medicines is frightening. It's frustrating knowing

there is nothing that modern medicine can do to help. To help deal with the pain, anxiety, and depression I turned to alternative therapies.

Out of the many alternatives I tried that didn't work there were some that did.

One of these is Kratom (Mitragyna Speciosa). Kratom is an herbal supplement that I'd found through research after I was diagnosed with TSW. It comes in different forms, but it is mainly sold as a powdered leaf that is made into a tea. It helped support a sense of calm and promoted a sense of well being. It's been a great tool in my fight against

TSW.

After a long uphill road, today, I have a chance at life. I'm going back to college to earn my bachelor's degree, and I have come leaps and bounds from where this condition had me.Thanks to a strong desire to get better, support from my parents, and botanical supplements like Kratom, skullcap, mulungu, etc, life seems more positive now. I believe overall, Kratom is a remarkably safe plant. Please don't harm the Kratom consumers in this country by taking it away.

It is as nature intended, a plant, available for our use to improve our quality of life. Everyone should be given the chance that I was given, to choose nature over synthetics.

I am greatful to you for putting this out there.

I've watched, cried and sat helplessly as Dijon cried in her sleep - when she can sleep. I've sat by her bedside with our daughter, Amanda countless times not knowing if this was going to be the time that she wouldn't pull through. Waiting to see her eyes open, and knowing the sound of her heartbeat and any changes in it.

I've helped debrie her wounds, clean her when she couldn't. Our daughter and I cried, watched and waited.

Yes, its affected everyone, and Dijon still suffers emotionally from the abandonment, blame, criticism and those that have walked out of her life because they couldnt deal with it.

But with all the pain and stress, worry and not fully understanding. Because afterall, " there's no such thing, that doctors can't cure…. even if they causrd it"

For Dijon and the countless others, its tenfold; they feel it, live it, are criticized and rejected, called lazy and drug addicts… but they carry the pain of those around them as well. More concerned about making others comfortable then themselves. They've taken on their physical, emotional pain, and ours.

I didn't know from one day to the next, I watch her breathing. She has seizures so bad she stops breathing.

I've seen the pain, stress, worry, fear and frustration on our daughter and 3 grandkids faces. I've watched the horrible affects on their relationships.

Yet Dijon laughs, jokes, makes others laugh, all of the time. I dont know how!

In the short time that she's been consuming the herb kratom: Ive seen a drastic change. People say, " don't say cure" I wouldn't, because it hasn't. But she has an over all sense of " okayness"

Shw can tolerate more, and handles it differetly. Her flare ups seem harder to watch, as theres no warning. No " predictable time limit"

She says she has more of a sense of peace, can enjoy time more vs. trying to say all she wants others to know/ understand/ remember , and ends up stressing, and making people think of things they dont want to think about.

If others think that this gets " you high," they're SERIOUSLY mistaken!

I drink it daily, and it helps me handle both work stress, and her health much differently.

BUT THERE IS NO HIGH. NO EUPHORIA. NO DANGER!

Please, don't take away the little bit of peace or comfort that so many are able to find!

Please!

Thanks to the DEA and the opioid hysteria, my physician was forced to take me off the methadone I'd been using for 15 years without problems for peripheral neuropathy – a painful nerve disorder. If not for kratom I'd be begging my family to put me out of my misery – it's saving me from the agony of trying to walk on crippled feet.

No physician is willing to risk their license to practice by prescribing opioids. This leaves their chronic pain patients facing either a lifetime of suffering or the option of trying to buy illegal drugs on the street or the darknet. For many of us, kratom has provided hope for a normal, clear-headed life with manageable pain levels. If that is taken away, too, what is our option? How is making kratom illegal going to save the lives of opioid addicts? Is making kratom illegal going to keep Chinese-manufactured fentanyl from killing us?

Please put the lives of American chronic pain patients ahead of Big Pharma's profits and let us have our kratom!

Jean Anderson No. 13178 1512256446

As another dealing daily with RSD/CRPS type 2 my blood will eventually end up on their hands if they succeed. I tried once to kill myself before I found kratom, and today due to restrictions I wouldn’t even be able to get enough Meds to make my “good days” bearable.

My doctor actually does pay attention to my kratom usage, and she has been turning others with no hope on to kratom after seeing what it has done for me. I will never have a normal life thanks to RSD, but I don’t wake up wishing for death every single morning with kratom.

Danielle Betz No. 13185 1512261425

I think this article is just barely the tip of the iceberg of the cost of a Kratom ban. I think this DEA/FDA situation where they wrongly accuse Kratom of causing deaths alone is disgusting and that the blood of thousands and thousands will be on their hands, and that they don't seem bothered by that fact, in the least.

Aundria Premo No. 13191 1512269680

I don't wanna die. I'm 42, mom to four sons, wife to an Army combat vet. And I will die if they ban kratom. Please keep sharing our stories!

Rob Windsor No. 13195 1512274934

Kratom was the only natural alternative that is non-opioid and truly effective in relieving the acute withdrawal symptoms is had when stopping opiates. I have been opiate free for over a year because of this plant from the coffee family. To say it has caused death is a lie. The FDA is deceptively stating deaths are "kratom-related" without mentioning all of the other substances found in the bloodstream. To take this away will only spike the current epidemic and would be the worst decision at a time like this. I will not go back to the hell of opiate dependence, ever! There is more than enough evidence supporting kratom as being safe and effective. Thousands upon thousands have similar testimonies and you would in effect be making people with chronic pain have to go back on opiates to function.

Thank you for putting this out there. Every one needs to know what this life changing plant can do.

I am a 34 year old mom, diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I was in a very horrible state one year ago. Fibromyalgia was ruining my life. I could no longer go on walks or do the shopping. The brain fog was so bad that I stopped driving and couldn't concentrate to write my books. Taking care of my house was a struggle, as was preparing meals. I was fighting to just take care of my young kids everyday. I had a very poor quality of life.

Pharmacutucal medications are not an option for me for many reasons, one of them being the health of my liver. A doctor advised me not to be on medications, even ibprophen anymore. In the last year with kratom, my liver enzymes went back to normal instead of continuing to rise!

I first heard about kratom on the fibromyalgia forums. I didn't think that an herb could help my problems, yet chronic pain patients kept talking about kratom. So I did more research into it. During a week of really horrible pain, I finally just ordered some kratom from one of the reputable venders recommended on a kratom forum. I started on kratom in Feb 2017 and it saved my life, turned me around.

Kratom is a Godsend for me, it tackles almost all of my problems. It promotes good sleep, pain relief, energy, mental health and good brain health. Normally on a day like today, when I'm in a full pain flare, I would be in bed. Instead I took a small dose of kratom throughout the day and have been up by and walking. Breakfast, laundry, super was made, painting got done! I was able to do the everyday normal things. I'm able to concentrate well so I can drive again, especially in rush hour traffic

For me, at a smaller dose, it has minimal side effects. In the ten months that I've taken it, I have never felt any sort of high from it, it just simply does not have that effect. I just feel normal again, which is saying a lot when you have fibromyalgia. I have never experienced any side effects that would make me seek medical attention and nothing that would lead me to think it's dangerous. There is scientific evidence that it does not cause respiratory depression.

As for its supposed addictiveness, I personally do not find it very addicting, others say it's equivalent to coffee or caffeine. I don't feel any physical or mental 'need' for it. If I don't need a dose or two, I don't even take it.

Here is a link to the 8-factor Analysis done on kratom by Dr Henningfield, one of the world’s leading experts on addiction, and the behavioral, cognitive, and central nervous system (CNS) effects of drugs.

It breaaks my heart that our government cares so little about us that they are aggressively trying to ban a plant that has helped so many people get their lives back. Not all kratom users are addicts or addicts in recovery. The majority of us use kratom to help us live productive, healthy and fulfilling lives free from pain, depression, fatigue and many other things that put our lives on hold.

I am a former preschool teacher with chronic pain, fatigue, depression & anxiety disorder. Kratom helped me get back the life I thought was lost to me forever. If the FDA & DEA schedule kratom as a Drug and ban it, they will essentially be crippling me and stealing any hopes for my future. A ban would be cruel, inhumane, immoral and evil. We are supposed to trust our government to look out for our well being, but a ban on kratom would tell all Americans that our leaders want us to be sick, broken and unable to function in our society. I’ve lost faith in our government and I can only hope they’ll pause for a minute and realize that they are dooming millions of Americans to a fate of neverending pain & helplessnessz

Cathy No. 13384 1512492740

My name is Cathy I just turned 60, I’m a disabled mom, and a wife. My diagnosis is fibromyalgia, ankylosis spondylitis, degenerative disc disease, arthritis, neuropathy, ect. I was researching Kratom for about two years, after looking for an healthy alternative to prescription pain pills. Ten months ago after I fired my pain management doctor I stopped my pain pills and started Kratom. I was afraid, wasn’t sure what to expect being a mom of teenagers I needed to be functional I prepared myself for the worse, I thought I would go through all kinds of withdrawals from the legal medication that I was prescribed for years. Nothing!!! I was totally amazed, I was able to function with pain level 4 instead of 10 and with a clear head. This leaf gave me my life back, I’m a better mom and wife. I still have all of my health issues but with the help of this plant I’m for once looking forward to my future, I’m not worrying about destroying my liver my frame of mind or having to be dependent on pain pills. #iamkratom #kratomsaveslives #keepkratomlegal

Emily No. 13396 1512510390

I was prescribed opiates years ago when I was diagnosed with PCOS. It was extremely painful, as I had grape-like clusters of cysts that would rupture on a regular basis. It was crippling. At first the meds helped (or so I thought) but then they stopped, so my meds were increased and usage got out of control. I was put on suboxone for withdrawal when I finally decided enough was enough. I was on suboxone for two years; but even so, I still had the "craving." Since that time (and unrelated to my former addiction) I've been put on a numerous variety of psychotropics and antidepressants and antianxiety meds for my bipolar type 2, diagosed with PTSD, GAD, carpal tunnel, chronic fatigue, arthritis in majority of my joints, a damaged rotator cuff, I have titanium in my left knee, my meniscus disks in my right knee are going, and the list goes on. I refuse to go to opiates again and I won't take more handfuls of medication that won't help with my psychological chronic illnesses. I've found a natural remedy, in kratom, to almost all of my problems. My pain is under control - I'm no longer crippled when the weather changes. I can pick up my children without my shoulder putting me into near tears. My chronic fatigue is managed and I can wake up in the morning and be awake and smile and laugh with my children. I was able to work a manual labour job. My anxiety is no longer running my life; I'm able to make phone calls and accomplish things. I'm enrolling in school soon. All because of kratom. I'm alive, NOT high. If kratom is banned, it could be detrimental to thousands of us, and our families. Banning it would not be doing any of us any favours, and this would not be looking out for the American people or anywhere near our best interests. #IAmKratom #Kratom #KratomSavesLives #WeAreKratom #KeepKratomLegal

Adan Galaz No. 13441 1512600570

Hi my name is Adan, I'm a 27 year old intructional specialist from Tucson Arizona and here's my story.

As a teenager I always suffered from depression and anxiety, at that time I didn't know what that was or how to cope with it. Instead of dealing with constant panic attacks and depression by the age of 18 I went to a psychiatrist who diagnosed me with Generalized anxiety disorder, depression and derealization/despersonalization disorder. I got prescribed medication many different combinations suck as lorazepam, Clonazepam alzaprolam, buspar, Seroquel, and many other SSRI's. I became addicted to the medications specially the benzodiazepines. I was never able to function due to my illness and my medications. At the time I was studying psychology and microbiology at the University of Arizona but because of the meds and my illness I couldn't keep going, I couldn't remember anything in my medications and I failed and had to drop out. My dream was to help people with similar disorders as mine and also people with disabilities. When I stopped going to school I also turned to opiates for relief, and also became heavily addicted to opaites. It tore my family apart. Got kicked out and ended up living at friends homes here and there one which also was a heavy user who two years ago overdosed and passed away. I had lost a career, my family, a long term relationship, my job as interpreter, and friends even all of my belongings. All in the name of trying to feel better, trying to stop my panic attacks my anxiety mydepression and my constant pain I was always in for no reason at all. I knew I had a problem but I couldn't stop because I knew the pain was worse and the anxiety was worse than how I was losing everything. When my friend passed away I decided I had to try something and remembered someone mentioned kratom. I decided to order some from online and started taking it. My life changed starting this I was able to stop cometely from stopping all benzodiazepines I was taking all opiates and just have kratom. The withdrawals still there but my anxiety had disappeared. My pain had subsided by %70 and I could see clear and think clearly and everyday that went by after stopping I was better and better clearer and clearer. Since taking kratom I stopped all medications both illegal and prescribed, I didn't have to go back to my psychiatrist, I got a job as a middle school special education teacher assisstant and withing 4 months of getting hired I got promoted to a high school special education teacher assistant. I started working in the field I loved and helping students with disabilities. They loved my work that within a year from there I got promoted to an instructional specialist also in special education being a job developer for students with disabilities who are about to graduate. My dream came true thanks to kratom I also got engaged to a beautiful and supportive girl, and got my family back! All because a simple tea that. No medication helped me at all. And now I am pain free and free from major anxiety or panic attacks. It's still there but I can control it. And I have full control of my life. I am what should been because of kratom. I am what I never was and always wanted to be. And I will continue to grow! Thanks to God and kratom all the support from loved ones! And my long wish is to keep helping those that need me the most, those wonderful students that need so much support, my family and fiancee and even though I make so little money I don't ask for that, I don't do it for the pay or money cause anyone who knows how much this job makes knows it's close to nothing. But the satisfaction I get is enough! Kratom allows me to be who I am. Who I couldn't be before. We kratom advocates aren't asking for very much at all but freedom health happiness and a simple safe tea leaf.

Thank you

Bianca No. 13444 1512614359

My name's Bianca, I'm 28 years old, and I've been dealing with chronic pain since the age of 13. It's all due to female stuff, endometriosis, fibroids, PID, and cysts that got progressively worse as time passed. Both of my parentsare addicts, so i was reluctant to try anything for the pain, but I was eventually put on narcotics. I was taken on and off the same few pain medications for around 7 years before they stopped helping all together and were becoming nearly impossible to get. It's a long story, but I was going to a pain clinic that was charging me more money than I had, and I was required to get non FDA approved spinal steroidal injections every few months that weren’t helping to begin with. Those were costing me $1000 each time on their own. None of it was helping, so I was practically in constant pain, unable to work, and having to give up every penny I had to the clinic. I was miserable. This is when I finally gave kratom a real chance, and I haven’t looked back since. Kratom helped me get off of the pills that were ruining me, and it helps me manage the daily pain I endure.
