My Current Reality


I’m too stoned to write anything cohesive. I’m too anxious to think a blog post through. I’ve written two and set them aside because I can’t tell on my own if they make sense or are just ramblings of a woman learning the ropes of medical marijuana.

This week I’ve tested out different strains and come close to finding the right dose/strain for my body. But I’m not there yet. Really I’ve spent most of the week either sleeping or dealing with short-term memory loss from the pot. It’s been really frustrating.

I’m all over the place!

It was so hard to get the card to begin with and the process (and product) are not cheap by any means.  Today just sort of turned into a frazzled mess. I feel like crying but I can’t seem to. I’m sorry I don’t have much of use to share with you today, but this is what I’m dealing with. I can’t give up yet either. All my doctors (even my regular pharmacist) says this can take weeks to adjust to. I’ve got to hang on and give it a real try.

Thanks for sticking by me and following me on my various life journeys.  It’s really nice to have the company!

Feel free to shout out in the comments if you’ve ever had a medication for mental health that took getting used to but was worth the wait! I would love to hear stories like that right now! Thanks for reading, I hope to be more on the ball next week.

    I’ve known a couple of people using it for medicinal purposes – pain management mostly though. Also they smoked joints so I don’t know how different it would be for you. Like a lot of meds, when they get the combo right you’re laughing!

    I took some anti-depressants several years back (can’t remember which ones, but very mild) they made me feel numb for a few weeks but I soon got used to them and then would feel a bit light headed on days when I was late to take them! But I get vertigo anyway – that’s my Achilles heel/”danger Will Robinson” warning sign, lol.

    You’ll be sorted before you know it. As Kathie said – hang in there xx

      Thanks, Lainey!! I have heard that it affects you differently if you smoke it. I’m not interested in smoking it though because of the smell and the health issues however small. Thanks for always cheering me on!
