I don’t appreciate the fact that I actually feel so much older than I am! But thanks to medical marijuana, I’m on my way back to doing what I actually want to do.
When you have a terrible back, there is no end to the frustration I feel, it’s just so tough not to be able to do something as simple as reach down plus get the laundry basket.
Also, the fact that I’m only in my mid forties didn’t help at all. At first, before I learned how to get a medical marijuana card, I went immediately to the doctor. My doctor then sent me to a back specialist who didn’t really seem to have a whole lot of answers. My friend and I tried the medication route but that ended up with me being foggy plus listless. That led me to be more sedentary which is not wonderful for a terrible back. From there, it was off to see the surgeon. At that point, I was willing to have anybody who could actually offer relief, even if it meant surgery. But thankfully, my sister recommended that I pump the brakes on surgery plus learn a little bit more when it came to medical marijuana benefits. The whole thought of surgery was a bit too extreme plus the data doesn’t support back surgery as a cure, so if I was only going to be getting relief plus management from surgery, why not look into using cannabis flower products. Getting through the marijuana regulations wasn’t that tough plus I accessed the legal weed store near me. Since then, I canceled the back surgery and am managing far better than I have in years thanks to the legal weed store.
