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 our MS symptom management. However, those several element are sort of tied to 1 another. When I was first ran tests on with MS, I felt appreciate I’d just been told I was a entirely weird man now and the future was bleak. I’m lucky to have been given the name of our support group. Otherwise, I believe 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 l received in the group all about how life can still be vibrant and charming with MS. I also l received that medical cannabis can be entirely , entirely effective in helping manage our 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 our stiffness and spasm suppression. So much so that I’m able to actually 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 our MS that actually 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 particular limitations while expanding other horizons.
