Had you told me that I would be smoking weed in our 50’s, I would have laughed in your face.
While I had experimented with marijuana in our early 20’s, that’s as far as it went.
I just wasn’t into it. That genuinely has something to do with the fact that I was always half drunk any time I smoked pot. But then both of us ran into a real concern when I hit our early 50’s. I started experiencing chronic pain. And it was not the result of an injury or any sort of physical trauma. It just sort of appeared. The doctors had me on pain killers plus some strong anti inflammatory meds. It helped a bit despite the fact that I honestly was not getting better plus the dosage of the meds began to climb. This was clearly not sustainable from our rest point. So, I decided to seek out a more natural treatment regimen. This resulted in our getting a medical marijuana card. I also found a physical therapy program that focused less on medication plus more on movement. It was hard at first because not only was I dealing with pain, our muscles had atrophied due to inactivity. But the medical cannabis particularly was the game changer. Weed helps me be positive plus see our situation as more temporary. Using medical cannabis also gives me more flexibility plus less pain to deal with after our stretching plus exercise sessions. The improvement I’m experiencing with medical weed is beyond exciting. I’m so thankful I live in an section where I can get access to a cannabis dispensary.
