It’s a lot easier trying to navigate life when you have treatment for your mental health issues.
- Prior to getting any kind of treatment, I didn’t really understand what was wrong with my brain.
It was hard trying to function through jobs that tested my patience and my perseverance through particularly stressful situations. I remember when I had my last job in the foodservice industry. Granted, this is the industry I started out in when I was 15 as a dishwasher and an industrial sized kitchen. It was a very stressful job even back then, but my mental health was not nearly as bad as it is now and it didn’t get that way for a few years. But I had a job in a restaurant in my early twenties and the owner and shelf was a real hot head. That’s back when I first started trying cannabis for the first time. I was really reluctant to use cannabis when I was a teenager because of all the scary stuff I heard from parents and teachers about what it would do to my brain. I remember there were times when I was worried that if I started using cannabis I would somehow fail out of school. But nowadays I rely on cannabis for my mental health. If I didn’t have cannabis in my life like I do right now, my mind and my behavior would be completely off track. I honestly rely on cannabis quite a bit to sustain my mental health. If I wasn’t using medical cannabis for depression, anxiety, and ptsd, I would have to be on some form of pharmaceutical medication. That’s why I choose medical cannabis myself.
