Had I known about medical marijuana, I don’t think I would have spent so much time dealing with the painful suffering I have endured.
The weird part about what I’m dealing with is that it’s not a broken part or something like that.
The condition that causes such pain is anxiety and depression. Other than the look on my face, there is no way to tell that I’m suffering. And for a very long time, I learned how to mask the look of pain, fear and trepidation on my face. Prior to being treated with medical cannabis, I went the antidepressant route. While there were some positives with the meds, they didn’t last and I had to switch medications quite a bit or the dosage was pushed up. And that resulted in dealing with side effects that ironically caused more anxiety and depression. Once I learned about medial marijuana benefits for my situation, I started a bit of a cannabis education. I went to cannabis dispensary events where I talked to both anxiety and depression sufferers and medical marijuana experts. I was convince enough to find out how to get a medical marijuana card. That was the beginning of the rest of my life. Since I started treatment with cannabis flower products, my anxiety and depression are much more manageable. And there have been entire days that I actually couldn’t wipe my smile of my face. That is a far cry from where I was and I have to attribute these great results to cannabis products. Not more antidepressants and all those side effects for me now that I have found a much more effective and natural treatment.
