For the past five years, I have been dealing with hand tremors.
My hands shake uncontrollably at different times throughout the day.
Sometimes the shaking is caused by stress and other times the shaking occurs for no reason at all. It can be very embarrassing at work. Sometimes I can’t even hold my coffee cup still without shaking and spilling. I was in a meeting at work one day and the boss noticed the shaking. He had a discussion with me about alcoholism. I politely and sternly informed my boss that I was suffering from tremors and he backed off. After that, I knew it was important to bring up the tremors with my doctor. My doctor suggested medical marijuana as a way to help with the nervous system problems. The doctor told me that there was good information proving marijuana to be a helpful treatment for Tremors and seizures. I took the advice of the doctor and went through with the process to sign up for a medical marijuana card. I certainly didn’t tell any of my family and friends about the diagnosis and I definitely didn’t tell them about medical marijuana. I kept that secret to myself until the day when my girlfriend discovered a package in the bedroom. I had to come clean after that, because she thought I had a drug addiction. We went to the doctor together and my primary care physician explained all of the basics about medical marijuana and how it could help me live a better life free of tremors and shaking.
