I will never again make light of insomnia.
When I was younger, insomnia seemed sort of like a comic type of condition.
But once I started experiencing life without sleep, I realized just what a horror show that can be. But, I’m lucky to have access to a legal weed store in order to treat my insomnia naturally. My sleeplessness started sort of gradually. And I have to say that my habits, schedules and career goals had a lot to do with it. Throughout my entire working life, I’ve always pushed it to the extreme when it comes to my output. There were plenty of weeks and months where I didn’t get the sort of sleep I needed. Instead, I tended to live on three and four hours of sleep. By the time I hit my forties, those habits came back to bite me. Three or four hours of sleep turned into just about no sleep. All I would do was lay in the bed with my head spinning and the inability to actually fall asleep. I was wrecked tired for sure but couldn’t sleep. Of course, I went to the doctor in order to find a cure. Medications were helpful but left me with a very foggy brain and an all day hangover. So I took a more holistic approach which included cannabis flower products. I changed my diet and put some boundaries on the number of hours I was willing to work. Along with my diet and cannabis flower products, I also added exercise, yoga and meditation. I’m really pleased to have my sleep back. But without the insomnia, I’m not sure I would have really addressed some very important components of my life.
