I’ve constantly sort of fantasized about what life must be like when your brain works normally. Of course, I’m over simplifying all of this by saying that. Yet, there is some truth to spending our life wondering what it must be like to just live life and be able to smile. However, with treatment including medical cannabis, I’m starting to see just exactly how this is possible. For all of my adult life and much of our formative years, I’ve dealt with some degree of a combination of depression and anxiety. I do not know if the anxiety causes the depression or if the depression causes the anxiety. Perhaps, it’s just all wrapped up into one. Yet, until I discovered medical marijuana benefits for our condition, I just was trying to get through each day. Thinking about the future freaked me out and the idea of continuing to live the way I was simply tore me down. Having been out of therapy, I was curious when our new therapist proposed that I try medical cannabis. She helped me through the medical marijuana regulations and I was able to purchase cannabis products from the cannabis dispensary. I was stunned by how different I felt right away. It felt like I was suddenly living this idea of what feeling normal must be like. I tried different cannabis products but settled on the vape products because it was a bit easier to measure my dosage. I’m so pleased with the results now that I’m treating it with medical cannabis.
