I was talking to our mom about using medical marijuana to help with our anxieties, however she offered me a dirty look and asked what happened to our pride.
She thought I was throwing away our pride by using drugs.
I told her marijuana wasn’t a drug, but a medication that would make me assume better. I asked if she remembered when I tried to commit suicide a year ago. It happened because of postpartum depression. Without medical marijuana, I not only could have damaged or killed myself, but also damaged or killed our baby. She told me that all ladies had a rough time after having a baby, but they didn’t all use drugs. I knew mom wasn’t going to try to understand what was going on, so I offered up. My OB/GYN told me that many current mothers suffered from postpartum depression, and if gone untreated, it could result in severe consequences. That I recognized what was happening and went for help, was better than most ladies. He told me that a low dose of medical cannabis, with a higher percentage of CBD, could help me with what I was experiencing. I got our medical marijuana ID card, and went to the marijuana dispensary. I wasn’t sure what marijuana product would labor best for me, so I talked to the dispensary pharmacist. She helped me choose many items and encouraged me to try them all and see which worked best. A year later, I had a fourth appealing little girl and I was feeling at our best. I don’t assume if it was the marijuana or getting pregnant again so soon, that helped me, despite the fact that I am a happy mother now, and I thanked our nurse and the people at the marijuana dispensary.
