My wife Angie has been dealing with chronic pain for years.
She has joint issues and a lot of severe back pain.
This has been going on with her ever since she was a teenager. She had to wear a back brace back when she was growing up, and over the years the pain has been getting worse and worse for her. I really feel sorry for her a lot of the time, and I like to try and help her figure out ways to deal with it. The doctor told her that she’s going to have chronic pain of some sort for the rest of her life. That is very discouraging for someone to hear, but we decided to be proactive whenever he told her that. We started looking into different kinds of alternative medications. That’s when we found that medical marijuana is very good for chronic pain management. Angie started to use medical marijuana to help her with all of the pain that she was dealing with on a daily basis. I think that it is really helping. I actually feel like the medical marijuana is helping Angie more than she thought that it ever would. When she first started using medical marijuana, I wondered if it was the right decision for her. But now, Angie says that she likes medical marijuana a whole lot more than the prescription drugs that she had been on before. I can’t blame her for that! Those prescription pain meds were terrible for her. I’m really glad that she tried medical marijuana.
