Medical marijuana provides a different perspective on MS for me

I’m so thankful for the support group I found for those with MS. And I’m equally thankful for the medical marijuana treatments that help me deal with my MS symptom management. However, those two element are sort of tied to one another. When I was first diagnosed with MS, I felt like I’d just been told I was a very different person now and the future was bleak. I’m lucky to have been given the name of my support group. Otherwise, I think I would have worked myself into a depression that I may not have come out of. That’s how deeply I was changed by the diagnosis. However, I learned in the group all about how life can still be vibrant and wonderful with MS. I also learned that medical cannabis can be very, very effective in helping manage my MS symptoms. This was so emphatically encouraged within the support group that I got some medical marijuana information. This led to me then navigating the cannabis regulations so I could access the cannabis dispensary. I have found that cannabis products help tremendously with my stiffness and spasm suppression. So much so that I’m able to really lean into the exercise and stretching regimen that has been so helpful. I also am able to sleep so much better since starting the medical marijuana treatments. But it’s the perspective I have about my MS that really changed was I started with the cannabis flower products. Life is different, there’s no doubt. But I see now that I can also adjust and learn to understand and accept certain limitations while expanding other horizons.
