My depression, that was caused by chronic pain, was worsening and ruining our marriage.
Ever since the doctor diagnosed me with fibromyalgia, I have been having a difficult time. I was told it affected the large muscles of the body, but there is no reason and no cure. Unfortunately, I was one of the lucky ones to have the symptoms and the diagnosis, and was looking for something to ease the pain. A friend told me I should try medical marijuana. She had been using medical marijuana for almost two years. The only complaint she had was the cost of medical marijuana, but everything else was rave reviews. Her pain had subsided, and she was living a normal life again. I knew I would be happy with a reasonable facsimile of what my life used to be. I called the doctor my friend used to get her medical marijuana ID card, and made an appointment. I had to pay up front, but that was okay. If I had half the success my friend had, it would be worth any amount of money I had to pay. I had been sullen for months, and my husband and I were having marriage problems. My depression, that was caused by chronic pain, was worsening and ruining our marriage. Once I went to the doctor, it was a matter of two short weeks before I got my card. Less than a month later, I wasn’t pain free, but I was getting relief from the pain. My mental attitude changed with the use of medical marijuana, which I was sure was because of lack of pain. I wasn’t sure if my marriage would be the same again, but I will do whatever I can to turn things around.
