I simply had to get off the pills.
While I hated dealing with the chronic back pain I have been experiencing for numerous years, the pills weren’t good for me either.
I knew that if I didn’t find another path toward managing my pain, I would end up a junkie with a disappointing back. That’s oversimplifying it a bit however it’s the tolerable truth. I now have access to medical marijuana and am decreasing my approach completely. My back problems are from an injury I suffered when I was younger. And being a young knucklehead, I didn’t properly heal or treat my injury. So of course, it came back to bite me all these years later. At first, I tried to manage the pain with OTC meds. That didn’t last undoubtedly long before I was off to the dentist. I was sent for PT and prescribed the pain pills. The PT helped some however it was so difficult on me. The spasms in my back after a PT session were so disappointing that I was brought to tears a few times. It was easily awful. As a result, I leaned more on the pills and less on the physical therapy. Now, I’m off the pills thanks to medical marijuana. And I’m not stopping there. The cannabis flower products I’m using have motivated me to easily treat my situation in a holistic way. I’ve changed almost every less than desirable behavior in my life. The change and the medical cannabis have helped me know better than I have in years.
