I Notice There Is A Difference Between The Postings With People Afflicted With CLL Vs. AML.

Many of the post with CLL it seems like the patients have good and bad days, but they are still able to function and, in some cases, return to work. I have AML and I am constantly looking for some ways to be painless and do stuff like stretching exercises. Between different mixes of Diloded, Methadone, CBD and small doses of THC I am able to find some relief, but I am either stoned (not complaining too much about that) or tired. Does anyone else feel the same way?
