I simply had to get off the pills.
While I hated dealing with the chronic back pain I have been experiencing for multiple years, the pills weren’t good for me either.
I knew that if I didn’t find another path toward managing our pain, I would end up a junkie with a terrible back. That’s oversimplifying it a bit however it’s the fair truth. I now have access to medical marijuana plus am increasing our approach completely. My back concerns are from an injury I suffered when I was younger. And being a young knucklehead, I didn’t officially heal or treat our 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 easily long before I was off to the doctor. I was sent for PT plus prescribed the pain pills. The PT helped some however it was so hard on me. The spasms in our back after a PT session were so terrible that I was brought to tears a few times. It was easily awful. As a result, I leaned more on the pills plus 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 our situation in a holistic way. I’ve changed almost every less than desirable behavior in our life. The change plus the medical cannabis have helped me think better than I have in years.
