The cannabis helps me forget about the phantom leg pain
When I was sixteen years old, my dad bought me a dirt bike. My mom was furious about the gift, but my parents were divorced and my mom couldn’t say anything. I rode the dirt bike all over the mountain and the dirt roads by my dad’s house. I had a lot of fun in the woods, until one day when I wasn’t really paying attention. I always ride the same path from the house to the woods. I have driven the path so many times that I can practically do it with my eyes closed. On this particular day, I wasn’t paying attention and I didn’t realize that a tree fell on the path until I was coming around the corner. I swerved to avoid the tree and I tumbled down the ravine. The bike landed on top of my left leg. I laid in the ravine for an hour before I woke up. When I woke up, the bike was on my leg and my leg was badly bleeding. I couldn’t concentrate on much, but I managed to find my cell phone and I dialed 911 and my mom. The ambulance and forest ranger arrived with a helicopter and took me to the local hospital. I had my leg amputated that day. I still feel pains in the area where I have no leg. The only thing that helps is medical marijuana. My doctor got me approved for medical marijuana as soon as it was legalized in the state. The cannabis helps me forget about the phantom leg pain. I know the pain is in my head, but sometimes it is consuming. Medical marijuana is the only thing that helps.
