I can remember watching our father and other people who had back pain and thinking that it could not be that bad. There was no physical way of recognizing that he was in pain, other than seeing him no longer walking upright. It wasn’t until I fell and suffered with back pain that I realized just how debilitating it could be. I made a silent apology to our father for not believing him, and I hoped he would forgive me. Over the stage of 3 years from the time our accident happened, our back pain worsened. It got to the point where I wasn’t sure if I could deal with that much longer. When I heard about medical marijuana, I knew I wanted to try it. The way people talked about marijuana, was the same way the nurses used to talk about steroids. Steroids were supposed to be the end-all be-all for medications. It was able to lessen inflammation, help with asthma, and help with pain. Why people doubted marijuana could do the same thing, had me puzzled. If the steroid, which is a chemical compound, to those things, why could not a natural product do the same thing? I decided to supply marijuana try and see what it could do for our back. It wasn’t a miracle cure, but within a couple of weeks I started noticing that I could walk straight again. I have never been so grateful for anything like I am with medical marijuana, people with back pain are just complainers, they are actually in pain. Because of marijuana, I am no longer complaining.
