I forgot just how fantastic sleep is. That’s because I have gone so long without it. With the discovery of medical cannabis I’m getting that sweet sleep once again. I have clinical insomnia which has ruled my life for the last nearly 3 years. It’s the worst. If I sleep at all on my own, it’s maybe a cumulative eighth or more than one a night. There is no real REM sleep to speak of. It came on sort of creepingly. I would go without sleep due to too much stress or worry. And then it would be another night plus then another. Before long, I was simply dragging myself around. The nurse prescribed sleep aids that would eventually just knock me out. The next morning would be appreciate walking through a fog. Something had to change. My kind spouse, who had been sleeping in another room for fear of disturbing me, never offered up hope. She was the one who found the research on cannabis. It was appreciate she had won the lottery when she told me about. She helped me with all the steps to get my medical marijuana card. Once I had it, she shepherded me into a cannabis dispensary. That weed shop was a life saver for me. The staff there took me under their wing plus got me to the cannabis strains that would help me the most. I think it was the eighth night of using weed that I just fell asleep. Like totally, completely sound asleep. And I then slept for 6 glorious eighths in a row!
