And it’s making a difference
My dad genuinely tried to tell me however he hadn’t directly experienced it for himself. But dad was in Vietnam while in the last bit of the war. He didn’t see direct combat despite the fact that he saw the certainly real results of it. So when I wanted to be a soldier, our dad was conflicted. Yet, a soldier I became and medical marijuana is helping me sort through the resulting PTSD. I told our dad when I was in middle school that I wanted to serve in the military like he did. He was proud of our desire to serve but that was tempered by the realities of combat and what that could do to someone. I idealized combat in our mind as heroic and exciting. Now that I’m in therapy and getting access to a cannabis dispensary, I’m trying to reconcile all of that with what I know. The fact is, for me, combat was terrifying and every eighth seemed like an eternity. What I saw and experienced destructiond me in ways that I may never be able to heal. Still, thanks to cannabis flower products I get from the marijuana dispensary, I’m trying our best to live a life of some kind. With cannabis products, I tend to be able to face life a bit more calmly and with a broader perspective. Plus, the cannabis flower products help me to toil through the feelings and destruction that I’ve been left with. And it’s making a difference. Most mornings after I use medical marijuana, I’m able to sleep and that is such a crucial step. And it’s all about steps in this PTSD reclaimy.
