After I gave birth I developed postpartum depression.
I just started getting sad all the time.
I couldn’t snap out of it. Nothing gave me pleasure anymore. I didn’t want to workout, go for walks or read anymore. I had trouble bonding with my baby and sleeping at night. My husband wanted me to go on prescription pills to fix my depression. I wasn’t keen on that idea. I did some research and found that medical cannabis is great for depression. Since I wasn’t breastfeeding I felt safe to become a medical marijuana patient. I still didn’t want to smoke and have that smell on my clothing when I had a newborn though. So what I did was get a tincture for nights and an edible for daytime use. At night I put the oil under my tongue and it helps me sleep better. I feel calmer and more relaxed when I do nighttime feedings. During the daytime I pop a few CBD infused cannabis gummies. Again, it just keeps me feeling much looser and happier. I don’t get nearly as down and numb feeling anymore. I know I am not back to normal. I still am super sad and depressed about this major life change. I am getting better though. I am able to do more practical things too. I can feed my baby, do laundry and get groceries without being in a depressive funk. I am so glad that I found medical cannabis and it works for me. My life has improved tenfold since I became a patient.
