My dad has been living with me for the past 5 years. When my mom died, he fell apart and stopped taking care of himself. My sister and I had to intervene when we found him in the house with no heat in the middle of the winter. My dad moved in with me, because my sister lives on the west coast. My dad didn’t want to move all the way across the country so the only option was living with me. When my dad first moved into my place, he had really bad insomnia. He couldn’t sleep at all and I thought it was just due to the change in scenery. There were a lot of different changes and I knew it was hard for my dad. I suggested medical marijuana to my dad, but he refused. He was certain that melatonin would work the same. My dad had trouble sleeping and the insomnia problems lasted for 6 months. They magically seemed to disappear for years, but recently it seems like he is starting to experience insomnia again. I talked to the doctor when I went with my dad a couple of weeks ago. I mentioned medical marijuana and the doctor said it sounded like a great idea. My dad mumbled something under his breath and the doctor reminded my dad that it is 2023. Medical marijuana is legal in almost every state of the country. It absolutely works miracles and can help in a variety of ways for mental and physical problems. After talking with the doctor, my dad was finally ready to give it a try.
