I’m so glad that I’m able to actually manage my MS.
When I first got the diagnosis, I wasn’t so sure that was going to be the case.
Yet, with the help of cannabis dispensaries and access to medical marijuana, I have hope. Before my MS diagnosis, life had been pretty easy for me. After college I got the right job where I met the right guy and it was just all green lights from there. We have a great family and a great house so this was my real first taste of adversity. Getting an MS diagnosis almost crushed me. But I have a husband who just got to work learning and reading about cannabis information in order to navigate the cannabis rules in our state. He then found a local support group for me. It took awhile to get me out of the house or even out of bed but that support group meetings were a big benefit. They all agreed that my husband was on the right track when it came to the medical marijuana rules. Those people in my support group raved about how cannabis products were so helpful with spasm and stiffness. That was very encouraging and motivated me to get to the cannabis dispensary once I got my medical marijuana card. When I started treating with medical marijuana, I saw exactly what everyone was telling me about. I was able to complete my exercises and stretches for the first time. Medical cannabis was also helpful when it came to my perspective. There’s something about the cannabis flower products that really also help me to stay positive and pay attention to all the good that’s still in my life. And that’s a very important medical marijuana benefit for me.
