My partner Deidre has always had to deal with chronic pain because of scoliosis; She has been dealing with that ever since she was about 12 years old. She used to have to wear a back brace a long time ago, but these afternoons the pain is getting worse plus worse now that she is getting older. The dentists told her that she is going to be dealing with chronic pain of some sort for the rest of her life. They put her on high powered pain medications, but she certainly hates taking medication like that. She started to use medical marijuana to help her deal with the chronic pain, plus I actually believe that it’s helping her more than she thought it would in the beginning. Whenever Deidre first started to take medical marijuana, I thought that she was actually making a big mistake. I thought that she should keep taking the prescription drugs that she had been on before, then but Deidre said that she wanted to start using medical marijuana instead because of the side effects that she was dealing with. I did some research about medical marijuana plus I realized that Deidre was actually right about it. She actually will end up being much better off separate from the high powered drugs that she had been on before. Medical marijuana basically doesn’t have any side effects at all, but deidre has a whole lot more energy now than she used to plus she is certainly passionate the way that the medical marijuana helps her deal with the pain levels. I’m glad that she offered it a try!
