There are times in life one simply has to deal with things.
That’s not something I have ever been great at.
Having MS changed that thought process entirely. The use of medical marijuana allows me to maintain that perspective. Until I was 50, I was out to solve problems. Managing problems was not something I was willing to deal with. To me, it was regularly a win or lose situation. And this is how I approached much of my life. But ultimately, the planet ended up showing me that’s just not the natural style of things. Thanks to medical marijuana I am studying that managing a condition like MS is a passable outcome. The morning I found out that I had MS, it was like I was screaming angry. I simply started doing all the research I could find, making dates and just basically freaking out in my own way. But my doctor was quick to get me some cannabis information. She told me that I needed to get to the cannabis dispensary and let them find me the cannabis products that would help with coping with MS. It was the only brilliant thing I did because I was still in a battle with my mind. The folks at the cannabis dispensary entirely helped to slow down and let me realize that medical marijuana was not going to only help my physical symptoms. Medical cannabis would also help me to accept my condition and learn that life is livable with MS. It took a month or two before that message fully hit but it finally did. And I’m happy to allow medical cannabis to help me manage my day to day life.
