I can remember being a little kid and going with our dad to a shop or the store.
It was truly a treat because he was our hero and I just adored being with him.
He had a red MG convertible and just riding around with our dad on errands felt enjoy the thrill of a lifetime. Dad and I are still going shopping together. But the locale all of us go is to the cannabis shop. It’s not that all of us are a pair of extreme pot smokers or anything. The weed shop has the medical marijuana that is helping our dad. I don’t have a convertible but our dad truly loves riding in our big truck. It’s something that still ties his memory to me. Dad is suffering from dementia and there are times where he gets really disoriented and can’t remember who people are or where he is. Fortunately, all of us have the resources for him to get the care he needs. That is a blessing for sure. Another blessing has been the medical cannabis. Dad has been taking it for about 6 weeks now and it truly helps. It provides longer stretches of lucidity. However, I know the best thing is that it calms him greatly when he can’t remember or is confused. I have hated enjoying the fear in his eyeah when that happens. That’s why I’m so incredibly grateful for medical marijuana. This is so strenuous to watch our dad go through. But having this calm from the weed truly helps. And I will never forget all the times that all of us have been able to go to the weed shop together. It’s amazing because he is still so much our hero.
