So life can come at you in all sorts of weird ways.
- For me, I have sort of just learned to roll with life.
It’s not been a picnic for me but that’s just my life. Still, it’s all about living the best life you’re able. Medical marijuana is helping me do that as I adjust to life with MS. First, I have to say that an MS diagnosis is not the end of the world. There are so many good treatments out there. And the support I get from family, friends and a network of people with MS has been instrumental. Actually, the MS support group I belong to was how I found out about medical cannabis. Almost everyone in the group uses some form of cannabis product. I smoked some weed in my day so I wasn’t unfamiliar with cannabis products. Still, I really didn’t realize just how effective medical marijuana can be for those with my condition. The cannabis flower product that I use is really great for limiting my joint and muscle stiffness. This allows me to do the exercises and stretching that is so beneficial to my condition. Heck, I’m even able to take a yoga class and I couldn’t do that even before I was diagnosed with MS. The medical marijuana also really helps me to relax and just go with this. I don’t have near the anxiety that I have experienced in the past. And that is a godsend because life with MS is difficult enough without adding a bunch of stress and anxiety. Plus, I just love all the people down at the medical marijuana shop. They’re almost like family now.
