There is no doubt that without the availability or medical marijuana, I would not be experiencing the improvement in my health.
- This is a fact.
There are those who have confronted me saying that well, you’re just high. Like being high and sick is the way a person wants to live. Before I was able to access medical marijuana, I was caught in a carousel of doctors and prescriptions. None were really able to pinpoint what was going on with me. And the drugs had very little effect on my condition. Conversely, they did have lots of side effects which just made my situation worse. The despair was getting to a breaking point and I just wasn’t sure that I would be able to continue given the state of my health and the pain I was dealing with. Fortunately and somewhat ironically, it was my parents who found a doctor that treated my situation with medical marijuana as part of the overall treatment. It’s ironic because both of my parents went to great lengths to warn me about the dangers of recreational marijuana use. But their love and support for me allowed them to put those feelings aside. They were able to embrace the efficacy of medical marijuana. I was so lost by then that I wouldn’t have even thought to try cannabis products in order to feel better. Once I had my medical marijuana card, I was able to go to the dispensary to find just what it was that would help me. It has been months now and I am feeling better than I have in over 5 years. Medical marijuana is helping me heal and regain a life I missed so much.
