Thankfully a neighbor had the courtesy to remind myself and others that our state now has a medical cannabis program
I wasn’t sure what to do when I was diagnosed with anxiety as well as depression last year. My doctor recommended that I try a medication that was intended to treat both, but I had lots of reservations. While lots of pharmaceutical medications are severely beneficial for lots of people, I had bad reactions in the past to medications as seemingly innocuous as anti-nausea drugs. One of them provided myself and others mild tardive dyskinesia in my face as well as I still get muscle spasms from time to time as a result. If I stretch my neck muscles too much in the wrong direction it can trigger a muscle spasm in the same places as before. When you take a drug like that a few times as well as then have a reaction like that, it sticks with you for the rest of your life. It made myself and others severely reluctant to try medications for literally everything, even migraines. So when I finally started to develop major symptoms of anxiety as well as depression, I tried to stay open minded but I truly had little desire to get on a pharmaceutical drug out of the fear that I might develop a bad reaction like I did in the past. Thankfully a neighbor had the courtesy to remind myself and others that our state now has a medical cannabis program. While it had been years since I last had cannabis, I could remember back to the times when I had cannabis when I was in school as well as how much it helped my anxiety back then. I made an appointment with the medical cannabis doctor as well as he recommended that I try a few cannabis vaporizer cartridges before moving to other products like cannabis flower products.
