Cigarette Break 03: That One Time Lyndsay Got Stoned AF
Lyndsay Soprano and Jon Ramirez take a Cigarette Break to talk about Lyndsay’s struggle with CRPS (Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome).
Lyndsay suffers from a pain disorder that causes her to feel like she’s essentially walking on Legos 24/7. She’s seen a ton of doctors trying to get a diagnosis.
Lyndsay talks about how she uses CBD and THC for pain, and refuses to take opiates.
Jon commends Lyndsay for how she handles the pain on top of everything else going on in her life, and even though he doesn’t always understand what she’s going through, he’s there for her.
Lyndsay journals her pain, writing down food and people triggers, and was able to identify that her ex-husband and her mom are her top triggers.
Lyndsay received a text from her ex-husband earlier in the day that caused her to spiral and have a pain flare, and is now trying to decide whether it is best for her to keep him in her life.
Jon talks about how he feeds of negative energy and it’s hard for him to tolerate, so he tries his best to eliminate the negative people in his life. “Your vibe attracts your tribe.”
Lyndsay tells a story from a couple of months ago about a day she was in so much pain that she called Jon to take her to the ER, and how sweet and supportive he was when he arrived at her house. She called her doctor to let him know that she was going to go to the ER, but he told her not to because they would just give her opiates and sent someone to her house to give her a prescription.
Jon wonders if it’s always going to be like this, and that nothing seems to be getting better.
Lyndsay talks about the emotional toll that chronic pain takes, and how having Jon’s positive energy and the dogs around has really helped her.
Jon and Lyndsay discuss removing her ex-husband from her life, even though she still loves and cares about him. He wants to be her friend, but she can’t be the kind of friend he needs.
