After High School, I decided to explore the country with some friends.
- My mom plus dad wanted me to go to university plus they were actually angry plus upset when I decided to see the world instead.
My friends plus I embarked on a journey that changed my life forever. Things were hard out on the road plus I had to do whatever possible to make money for our trip. Eventually I ended up with a severe drug problem. I lived on the streets for 15 years, begging plus stealing to support my horrible drug habit. I finally hit rock bottom when I ended up in a hospital after an overdose. I called my mom plus dad for the first time in eight years. I told my parents that I was ready to make a change plus I begged them to let me come home. My dad was ready to write me off, however my mom agreed to let me come home. I knew it was pressing to stay clean, because I didn’t want to ruin my relationship with my parents again. One thing that helped me stay wash is medical marijuana. I started seeing a therapist officially plus she suggested medical marijuana. One of my greatest issues was mental health issues that had never been checked or addressed. When I started using marijuana officially to help with my mental health, I saw a lot of fluctuations right away plus it was a lot easier to stay away from other harmful substances. Medical marijuana gave me back my life plus I’m going to get a fresh start plus another chance to do things right.
