When I found out I had cancer, it devastated me.
I couldn’t remember a time when I was more scared than I was then.
The doctor told me that my prognosis was good, but I had to have surgery, chemo and radiation. He told me what to expect with each one, and one thing he reiterated several times was that I would have nausea. I remember how nauseous I was during my pregnancies. I couldn’t believe nausea could get any worse, but I was wrong in my belief. When I started the chemo, I was nauseous all the time, My muscles and joints ached from throwing up, and I was losing weight quickly. My doctor told me I needed more nutrition, but I couldn’t keep anything in my stomach. He told me he was going to give me a prescription for medical marijuana. He told me a lot of his patients were using medical marijuana to ease the effects of the chemo, and nearly every one of them thought it was a miracle drug. Two weeks later, I had my medical marijuana card, and I was heading to the marijuana dispensary. The budtender helped me to choose products that would help me the most. She said that many of their customers were cancer patients and she knew what worked best. She gave me samples of different gummies so I could find something I could tolerate, and that helped the most. She also gave me a vape pen and a cartridge. I could discreetly fit it into my pocket and I used it whenever I felt the nausea building.
