I think therapy is one of those things that everybody should do at least once in their life.
I have not met anyone in all my years that I thought was perfect with coping and dealing with mental health symptoms.
Everybody gets depression and anxiety from time to time, and it’s only a matter of how much adversity a person can take before they’re bound to crack. I actually had a close friend of mine who everyone thought was the perfect man on the outside. He grew up as a star athlete and excelled in school, earning himself several scholarships to the college of his choice. He also met his high school sweetheart at the age of 16 and they were married just three short years later. We all thought that Matthew was doing so well in his life, but deep down he was experiencing inner turmoil. Sadly, if Matthew had reached out for help, he might still be with us today. But unfortunately, he took his own life one afternoon with no forwarding to anyone else he knew. I go to a therapist to specifically avoid ending up like matthew. My therapist knows that I use cannabis as a means to cope with my mental health issues. We have talked about me trying other medications before, but since I had such a bad experience with antidepressants when I was younger I’ve been reluctant to use anything but marijuana to treat my mental health problems. I’m glad that my therapist is supportive of me using cannabis flower products in canada. As long as I don’t use too much THC throughout the day, I can function fairly well on my favorite marijuana products.
