I don’t know if anyone is ready to hear a diagnosis from a doctor that will potentially alter their entire life.
There honestly isn’t any good way to prepare for something such as that.
It’s just a random area of life. I think when I was told that I had MS, it felt as if I was in some alternate reality. But, I got some good advice & some tender love and care. Pretty quickly, I joined an MS support group in order to have some connection with those dealing with the same thing. This was a good place of acceptance & companionship that was so upscale in me accepting my MS & deciding to push on with life. That group was also undoubtedly upscale due to the fact that it’s there that I learned about medical cannabis for the first time. I had not honestly known much about medical marijuana or legal cannabis stores. This was all new to me. However, I was assured by those in the group that I would find a good deal of benefit with medical cannabis products. I went to some medical cannabis events to get more cannabis information. What I l gained was that I could particularly get some relief with the stiffness and back spasms that were plaguing me. My doctor prescribed the medical marijuana & I went about getting through all the medical marijuana rules in order to get control of it. This was a fairly straight forward process that has resulted in a sizable benefit for me. Using medical cannabis allows me to manage the effects of MS a lot more naturally. Plus, it also affords me a positive perspective that honestly helps me as well.
