Here is Kristine Winter Newman’s Story ~
‘Well here we go. This is my story.
I’m not ashamed of who I am or where I came from anymore. I survived. I should not b here right now but I am and dammit I’m proud. There is a reason for everything n the reason I went through what I did was to b able to help others n that’s what I’m doing. I’m sorry for those I love n care for that i have hurt before but i am not the same person any longer and i would love another chance.’
‘June 22 made 4 years pharmaceutical free and Sept 4 will make 14 years off the drug of my choice.’
‘Aug 4 I found my mother dead from an accidental OD. A month later I got some help and got off crack cocaine. I met my second husband which I had our daughter on our 1 year clean date sept 4. Altho he turned to alcohol n became very abusive to me eventually. Everything was good until a year later when the diagnoses started.’ ‘Endometriosis, fibro, MS, sleep apnea, idiopathic hypersomnia to name a few. I was put on prescription after prescription. Many controlled substance. Nuvigil, adderall, xanax, trazadone. As much 180 mg of methadone and 30 of morphine. I was a zombie. I mostly slept. My symptoms were not controlled. My mind was a constant blur and I would need this to counteract that and so forth w the meds. My ol man was abusing me mentally and physically. I have severe PTSD from it. He choked me to the point I had to b resuscitated by the paramedics. I still went back. Left again with nothing. I lost everything. My family. My kids. My house, money, car.’
‘I started being a private dancer to make ends meet. I ended up being raped by 3 men one night. Shortly after I ended up pregnant w my second daughter. I know in my heart she was my second husbands(the same one that fathered my first daughter). But that’s another story. When I gave birth I had no stability n made the mistake of letting my aunt adopt her. They have great jobs and could provide her a wonderful life but that family has bad blood and r not good people. And she of course ended up keeping her from me.’
‘One day I lost my insurance and had to start getting things off the streets which we all know how expensive and dangerous that is. June 22 I was locked up after my supposed bff revoked my bond for a charge i TOOK FOR HER! She was already on felony probation n didnt want her to go to prison for the stolen property we were caught w.’
‘County jail dont do anything for u. I was so sick. Then when I got out I was a different person. Started looking into all natural alternatives and fell in love w our tea. It was like the light at the end of the tunnel and only the beginning of learning about all the many alternatives to basically every med I was on and i became human again. From there i started working on my spirituality and it’s like I became the person I was meant to b. I’m still praying I’ll have my daughters back in life soon but things just keep getting better for me. No more shoplifting or telling lies to get what I need. I function. I dont sleep all day. I dont make stupid decisions because my head is so clouded by big pharma. Cant count the others I’ve introduced to my lifestyle and couldnt b happier. I’m currently working on becoming a certified herbalist and would love to b a peer support specialist n help others get through what I did.’
‘Especially abused women. I love u guys. Thank u for letting me share.’ ~ Kristine Winter Newman
One thought on “We Are The Faces Of Kratom. We Are The Faces Of America, With Kristine Winter Newman.”
If you ever do become a certified herbalist, I’ll make sure to point people your way. We need all the experts in the kratom community we can get, since the FDA loves to throw around claims with little chance of them being refuted by people who know their language. Kami is one such,DR jonathan Cachat is another, but there are likely others. I’m just a regular guy who used kratom to get off of tramadol, and I had to seek help from experts before I was confident enough to take it. Opioid free nearly a year, just passed the 6 month deadline. I would have been free longer if Ihadn’t relapsed, look for my story hear if interested. Kami is right, you have amazing strength of will and character. Now we know kratom can help in cocaine withdrawal.
