Alzhiemers is a legitimately terrible disease.
It’s brutal for the person going through it as well as it’s tough for those caring for the loved 1 who has it.
There is just nothing that will totally change that, at least currently. However in my case, I’m not looking for a cure as much as I’m on the hunt for some comfort for my dad. That’s where medical marijuana has made such a massive change. Dad has been being robbed more as well as more of his lucidity with every week that goes by. Yet, there are times where he is there and right with me. I can look into his eyes as well as see the recognition and the calm. It’s much better than the fear I see in his eyes when he is dealing with so much confusion. That is heartbreaking to watch. About multiple weeks ago, I began getting some cannabis education by going to cannabis events at the legal weed shop just around the corner from us. I l received that medical cannabis can aid those dealing with dementia. Calming my dad as well as even allowing for more as well as longer episodes of extreme lucidity. I l received a lot from the cannabis information as well as I started to work through the medical marijuana regulations to get dad acces. It’s sort of strange that he is getting treated with medical cannabis. I’ve explained what it is to him. For the most part, he just thinks it’s another medicine. But 1 afternoon, he said he never thought he’d live to be a hippie. And he had that massive grin on his face that I’ve known all my life. Medical cannabis is helping my dad deal with this horrible disease. And I’m so grateful for the few extra moments that both of us had.
