The days of feeling like I’m bulletproof are definitely over. And it took a near catastrophic injury for me to easily realize the obvious. I don’t really know, I’ve just consistently felt as though I wouldn’t come to any harm. Bad accidents and injuries happened to other people. Well, thanks to medical marijuana, I am actually learning how to manage the pain from what is my first brutal injury. I broke both legs and my back while in a terrible fall. It happened on a hike when I got entirely brave on an exposed rock face. I ended up falling approximately seventy feet. Thus, the extreme injuries. Medical cannabis didn’t come into play for a little amount of time. Initially, there were surgeries and such and I was kept rather doped up on high powered pain killers. Yet, the longer I took the opioids, the more dependent I actually became on them and the more it took to find any type of relief. This was a sizable red flag for me. I was not about to become addicted to opioids. After speaking with my healthcare worker, I decided to go to the legal weed store to try medical cannabis as an alternative pain director. Man, am I ever thankful that I made that choice. The actual recovery process hasn’t been straightforward and the physical therapy can easily result in all sorts of pain and stiffness. The cannabis products I got at the cannabis store honestly came through for me. It actually helps me to manage the pain in a way that leaves me in full control and not addicted to any sort of substance. In addition to that, the cannabis products basically supply me with a spiritual and emotional lift as well.
