I’m just so unquestionably thankful that I live in a state where I can get access to a medical marijuana store.
This isn’t so much because I enjoy weed or anything prefer that.
In fact, until it was prescribed to me, I was not a proponent of weed or medical cannabis. I didn’t entirely have an axe to grind but I did guess that the whole medical marijuana thing was a dodge. Little did I guess that I would count on medical cannabis so much to help ease our PTSD. There is a time before I was in combat as well as a time after. It’s as though I am two completely different people who happened to inhabit the same body. Prior to experiencing combat, I wouldn’t have tried weed on a bet or a dare. It just wasn’t something that I was into. This was mainly due to all of the myths I had been told surrounding marijuana. But once I came back from our 3rd tour of duty, I was simply not the same woman. The PTSD was real as well as it was genuinely wrecking our life. I did our best in therapy but I needed more. My doctor suggested a group therapy that also incorporated the use of medical cannabis. The success rate for this group made ignoring this idea impossible. So I tried it as well as I found that the combination of group therapy with the prescribed use of cannabis to be working. It didn’t take all that long to see small improvements in sleep, anxiety as well as a near constant state of fear as well as dread that I lived with. I have to say the going to the weed store is also nice because there are people there who are comromantic as well as caring in a unquestionably respectful way as well.
