      It took me a few weeks to really adjust but it was great to not feel so tired all the time, hope you see results soon :)

    Hi JTL. You have today posted about trying CBD oil for Parkinsons. Do you any idea how much should be taken? OH has Parkinsons which is getting progressively worse. He now can no longer walk any distance and has hallucinations from the medicine.

    For example: A posting I put up is "Skinny Fat T2 for 10 years and never knew it" Would a discussion about fasting go in this posting or should I make a new posting? Also is there a definition page for all the acronyms being used? Thanks for your time.

      Hello this is a dormant account your posting on so not used - please post on the main forum, let me know if you need any info with acronyms and I can let you know, happy to help and welcome :)

    Hi, new to this forum( All forums actually). I have questions about how to use this. I have several topics related to T2s that are of normal weight and have never been over weight (also known as skinny fat). Would a post be considered a topic or do you put several topics under one post.
