I was in an accident about 10 years ago and everything in my life changed after that.
I had to go to rehab and learn how to walk again.
My wife was frustrated. She didn’t sign up for all of the trouble that came 6 months after our marriage. Eventually she moved out and left me on my own. At the time, I was really angry and upset. I ate a bunch of food and gained a hundred pounds. I didn’t do any of the rehab that I should have and my muscles began to atrophy. It wasn’t a meeting with a mental health care professional that things changed. The mental health care professional saw that I was in danger of suicide. The depression was really bad. I was having suicidal thoughts, but I didn’t share them with anyone. The therapist wanted me to try something very different. She recommended using medical marijuana products for a while. I knew that medical marijuana products could help with chronic pain, inflammation, seizures, and glaucoma, but I did not know that medical marijuana might be able to help me with depression. She recommended a low dose edible. She thought 10 or 20 mg might be able to help. She also recommended finding something that was a sativa strain. I couldn’t really find anything that was sativa strain specific, but I did find some edibles that were specifically made to be uplifting and energizing. Those edibles really did make me feel better. Medical marijuana works in a lot of weird and mysterious ways, but it does work.
