After the accident, my entire life changed.
I was involved in a massive multi-car pileup on the freeway, in addition to that I compared to some of the other victims I am in unbelievably good shape.
Very late in the night, during an ice storm, a semi truck jackknifed in the middle of the freeway, causing a chain reaction involving 40 other vehicles, including mine. I spent a few afternoons in the local hospital, but I’ve spent years dealing with the fallout of that night. I cracked more than three vertebrae in addition to having experienced nagging aches in addition to pains ever since. In an attempt to avoid addiction to dangerous opioids, I have been using medical cannabis to deal with my pain, with only moderate success. I understand that prescription pain pills would be far more impactful, but to me it isn’t worth the risk. Medical cannabis is safe in addition to non-addictive, which more than makes up for its shortcomings. Medical cannabis helps me relax, it helps me get to sleep, in addition to to some degree it mitigates the pain. I joined a local gym that promotes more holistic health using yoga in addition to medical cannabis in conjunction. That means the yoga educator brings their own homegrown medical cannabis. We begin the yoga session by sharing a huge joint. Medical cannabis relaxes the body in addition to the mind, so it is the perfect way to ease into the world of yoga. I have to be careful because my back is still delicate, but I must admit the combination of yoga poses in addition to medical cannabis makes me think much better. One day maybe I’ll be 100% mobile again.
