A few years ago, I hurt my back quite badly.
It happened during a home remodeling project.
I installed drywall on the ceiling by myself. Although I chop the sheets in half, the size and weight was still too much for me. I am a five-foot tall woman in my mid fifties. I needed to use the top of my head and my left hand to hold the sheets in position while I operated the drill with my right! At the time, the process was awkward and painful. However, I didn’t fully realize the harm I was causing my body, but because I workout every afternoon and keep myself strong and fit, I tend to push myself too far. By that evening, I was in so much pain that I couldn’t get off the couch. I had torn my trapezius muscle. The upper left side of my back swelled and became discolored. I was unable to rest up for more than a few seconds for three weeks. I couldn’t drive or even clean my hair on my own. I needed to lie on ice and I needed some type of painkiller. There was no way I could make it to the healthcare worker’s office. I was also not eager to take on the risks of prescription painkillers, fortunately, recreational weed is legal in my state. I was able to shop for natural pain remedies on the cannabis dispensary’s website. I checked out descriptions, pictures, potency and effects, but placing an order online was straight-forward. I chose a combination of topicals and edibles with an equal THC to CBD ratio and opted for delivery service. The cannabis arrived in a discreet package that same afternoon. I have continued to order various types of cannabis products from the dispensary ever since.
