"Medicinal", what do you think?
I know that everyone on here is suffering from one sort of pain or the other. And I'm tired of tip-toeing around this subject, let's get down to the nitty-gritty. Medicinal marijuana...would you use it?
I personally am a big advocate for legalizing marijuana for pain sufferers, the true pain sufferers, not the "Oh, I stubbed my big toe" drug seekers. I may be over stepping my bounds on this site, don't know, not sure if my pain cares. I have been trying to help those by suggesting other meds, but those meds don't work for long when you're body has gotten immune to them. I'm at that point now and in a butt load of pain because I wanted to see how much pain has been relieved by the marijuana and haven't touched it in a week. I'm still taking my normal pain meds, but they aren't touching my pain! One more week of not touching it and I don't think I can follow through with the experiment....right now it's either cry or be depressed.
How many of us are currently going to Pain Management doctors? How many of us are actually 75 percent pain free because of our doctors who specialize in pain management? From what I've read in here, I can honestly say that maybe 10 people. How many are tired of the all the pills we have to take because of the pain and if we decided to not take those pills we'd be in complete agony? Quite a few.
One thing that does take more than 75 percent of my pain away is marijuana. Is it gonna kill me? NO. Will the morphine I take eventually kill me? YES. Can I overdose on marijuana? NO. Can I overdose on anyone of my pain meds? YES.
Is it a sin to ingest marijuana? NO, God gave it to us to use in many different ways. I have hemp lotion that used on my third degree burn that I got while being on my pain meds. It's only been two-three weeks since the burn happened and it's gone...completely. Hemp..cannibus...marijuana...pot, what ever you want to call it, it's the same thing used for different things.
My mom is big time against marijuana, but thinks it's great that I can get pain relief from it. Sure is better than more morphine, which my docs want me to take more of....sure, keep lining their pockets from the RX kickbacks.
I personally hate this feeling of helplessness that I have against my own pain. I can't even imagine what my husband is going through with it. All he can do is sit and watch me right now. He is the one who helped me out in the first place by saying..."try this", while handing me something to smoke. What a difference in pain levels it made. I went from a 10 plus to a 3. Just by a few tokes on something that this country thinks as bad. Marijuana isn't bad....you can't overdose on it. You dont get addicted to it, like the pain meds we are on. I could die if I stopped the morphine and lyrica. And if I didn't die, I'd sure wish I had, which would make me suicidal and I don't believe in suicide.
So....who's for it, who's against it? Ask me anything about it, I'm sure I could tell you the answer.
