It took me quite some time to realize that being diagnosed with MS was not some sort of death sentence or life destroying event.
But it felt that way when I first heard the news.
And it took some time for me to realize that while life as I knew it before has changed, it is easily far from over. There are just so many treatments that are effective when it comes to managing plus residing with MS. And a single of the massive surprises for me is that medical cannabis is among the most effective. The last thing I expected I’d be doing in my forties would be heading into a legal weed store to get cannabis products. Sure, I smoked my tolerable share of marijuana when I was in my early 20’s. But that was most definitely a different time plus site that I ended up moving on from as I got into my adult life. So deciding to go to the cannabis dispensary was a real trip. For starters, I had no clue in the least that legal weed shops were such a retail shopping experience in a way. While I was there for medical cannabis, there were others who were there for other things. But a single thing we all had in common was that we were being helped by expert staff. These amazing, compassionate people were so essential in helping myself and others with medical marijuana. Not only were they professionals in knowing all about the cannabis products that were best for our conditions, they helped myself and others learn to use them as well. With medical marijuana, I have yet another tool at my disposal for helping me with my new condition.
