Insomnia is an extremely common sleep disorder that affects thousands of people.
- Insomnia makes it hard for your body to fall asleep and stay asleep for more than a few hours at a time.
People who are insomniacs still wake up feeling the same level of tiredness that they did when they went to sleep. Many adults will experience insomnia for a couple of days. This can happen due to stress, worry, or physical activity. Only long-term or chronic insomniacs need intervention. I was not sleeping for days on end. I was waking up at 4:00 in the morning and I couldn’t go back to sleep. I was irritable, anxious, depressed, and really tired. I was making errors at work that were going to catch up with me. I spoke with the doctor and he told me to try some over the counter sleep time aids. I told the doctor that I tried absolutely everything that the store had. I was telling the truth, too. I really did try everything in the store from patches to creams and pills and drinks. The doctor sent me to a special medical marijuana clinic. The clinic was for people that suffered from sleeping disorders. The doctor inside of the clinic had the ability to present me with a medical marijuana card if he felt that marijuana might be able to help with the insomnia problems. The doctor absolutely felt that my insomnia could be helped with marijuana and prescribed the medication to me without any hesitation. I still use medical cannabis every night before bed for a full 8 hours of rest.
