Each day I keep asking myself how much longer this nightmare will continue to prevail.
First I lost my job, then I spent weeks fruitlessly applying to unemployment as the statewide site kept crashing everyday.
All of us who lost their jobs converged onto the website at once. When I finally received unemployment, I discovered that the benefits would soon expire. The first stimulus check helped me avoid defaulting on my car for the time being, but I desperately need more help. I know there are countless people out there who are worse off than I am right now, which is a troubling thought in and of itself. Beyond the financial worries, many of us are desperately trying to avoid catching the virus, either because we’re high risk individuals or we live with high risk family members. When I see others refuse to wear masks, it enrages me to the point where I want to scream in their faces. The only thing keeping me from losing my mind altogether is cannabis. I use it in the late afternoon and early evening hours and it does a fantastic job or setting my mind straight. With so much uncertainty every day, marijuana helps me keep my brain from falling apart. I found a cannabis dispensary that sells trim and shake of flower buds for massively reduced prices. Even if I’m low on money, I can usually afford to buy enough cannabis shake to get me through the month. It might be a little dry, but sometimes I get trim and shake from otherwise potent batches of marijuana with a high THC content. I am incredibly grateful that several dispensaries offer deals like this.
