Post-traumatic stress disorder is something that happens to a person after they have experienced or witnessed an event that leaves an impression that is lasting and will not leave. I had an awful childhood with a great amount of domestic violence and I witnessed a lot of awful things in the house. I was removed three times before my parents finally lost custody of me and my brother. I have PTSD and it has bothered me for a long time. I recently decided to start getting help for my mental troubles and that’s when I realized that I had ptsd. The mental health professional helped to make the diagnosis and she told me that she could send me to a place where I could be prescribed marijuana. Medical marijuana was legal at the time and I thought it sounded like a great idea. I found out that my insurance doesn’t cover any of the cost for medical marijuana, so I had to wait until it was tax time before I had enough money. No one should have to wait until tax time to have money for prescriptions. Medical marijuana absolutely helps with my PTSD symptoms, so I’m glad that it was legalized for recreational purposes a couple of years ago. As soon as it was legalized for recreational purposes, prices nearly dropped in half. Dispensaries started opening up like diners and car washes. There are at least twice as many dispensaries as there were in the past and that means that there are a lot more options when it comes to products, pricing, and selection.
