When you watch a person simply give in and stop trying, it sticks with you.
I had to witness this when my father succumbed to years of self abuse.
When he was in his early 60s, he was in poor health due to a lifetime of alcohol abuse smoking and obesity. When the arthritis pain started, it was like the camel couldn’t hold that one more straw. I just wish that medical marijuana benefits had been available for him back then. I think cannabis products would have helped my dad manage the arthritis pain but he didn’t get the opportunity. My dad just sort of gave up and didn’t live very long past that. Now that I’m solidly in my 50s and experiencing my first bouts of arthritis, I’m not giving up. What I did was figure out how to get myself a medical marijuana card and I’m going to deal with it using medical cannabis. My dad’s lifestyle ruined is health and that also stuck with me. I’ve taken pretty good care of myself so I’m in a much better position to deal with all this arthritis pain. I don’t like taking medications because I’m prone to really hard side effects. Plus I just like the idea of using something natural to manage my arthritis and inflammation pain. Once I got my medical marijuana card, I was able to access the local cannabis dispensary. I’m so glad I’m able to you get access to the cannabis flower products that are making such a giant difference in my condition. The pain is now manageable thanks to cannabis flower products. And not only am I not giving up, I’m leaning toward hope and a brighter future.
