I feel the depression from having an eating disorder can be nearly as awful as the physical harm it will cause to your body.
Until I found medical marijuana, I lived in shame and a cycle of abuse that was killing me. Much of my situation has to do with a body image problem I’ve had since I was a kid. There were plenty of mean girls when I was younger because I was a chubby kid. That quickly escalated into me seeing food as something unnecessary. Now that I am using medical cannabis products as part of my treatment, I particularly feel like I can embrace food again without going out of control. As odd as it sounds, cannabis expertise has helped me begin to conquer a deeply held misbelief. My therapist got me some cannabis information to see if I would be willing to try medical marijuana as part of my treatment. Once I got some cannabis education by going to cannabis events and visiting medical marijuana dispensaries, I was on board. Using medical marijuana gives myself and others an appetite that feels normal. And I feed that appetite with good, healthful meals. This particularly feels sort of natural to me. Since I have been using medical cannabis products, I haven’t succumbed to the binging and purging when I was a kid. Medical cannabis allows me to genuinely understand my complications with food are based on something that just isn’t real. And I get fantastic care, support plus compassion from those I deal with at the medical marijuana dispensary. My prospects for living a better life are good plus I am thankful.
