Lately, there has been a lot of stress in my life. I’m not sure what I am going to do to alleviate some of it, because I used to go to the gym, but there isn’t any time or extra funds for that anymore. Everything was fine until my husband walked out on me. Now I have two jobs, two kids to raise, and a home that I can’t afford. I’m not sure what to do so I cry all of the time, and I get angry quickly. I went to the doctor to see if there was anything I could do and he gave me antidepressants and anxiety relievers. I was telling him that I was worried about taking these meds, but he said I had to relax. I read about the different possible reactions and about the warnings that went with taking those pills and it scared me more than the stress I was under. While reading about the precautions, reactions and warnings of the antidepressant, I also saw an article about medical marijuana and how it was safer and it works better. We live in a state where medical marijuana is legal and I went to a smoke shop. I asked the man about how well it worked and what I should try. He gave me a small bag of what looked like gummy bears. He said to start with just a half of one since I had never used marijuana. If that didn’t work, I could always use the whole one. I was worried about getting and he assured me this wouldn’t happen. His assurance didn’t really help, so I decided to wait until the weekend and eat the gummy when no one else was home.
