While I don’t have the traditional full-body seizures that most people associate with epilepsy, I still have that diagnosis on my medical chart.
I have mild seizures that still need to be treated with daily medication. If I didn’t take my epilepsy medication, I would struggle even more than I already do at getting through my work day without too many obstacles with my health. How can you possibly expect to be an efficient worker if you have issues mentally that are exacerbated by even more health problems? It’s like a medical quagmire, but at least the medications help to some degree and allow me to work at a capacity that is much closer to “normal” from my old days than any other days for me. Recently I got the blessings from my traditional family practitioner regarding medical marijuana. I told him that I was interested in seeing a medical cannabis physician to discuss ways that I could utilize marijuana to improve my medical problems. I was eager to hear what medical marijuana would say to me. Sadly, he didn’t give me nearly as much information as I had been hoping for, but he did tell me to try using marijuana edibles first before moving into the world of smoking flower buds. He said that I might have an issue with anxiety while smoking flower buds and that I could more readily dose out cannabis edibles effectively. Despite his recommendations, I went ahead and bought both cannabis edibles and marijuana flower products to smoke. I found both kinds of cannabis products to be effective at two totally different things. At least I have access to them both.
