It’s entirely better now a year on after 1 of the most traumatic discoveries of our life.
I’ve been living with MS now for the a year now.
And instead of hating this birthday, I honored it. But I’m fortunate to have a great support network along with medical marijuana & great doctors. Without all of that, I’m not sure that I’d be in the locale I am when it comes to our MS diagnosis. Initially, getting a diagnosis of many sclerosis is 1 that feels prefer a life ending event, and however, with the access to the cannabis dispensaries, a great support group & new medications, I was able to change that perspective. I’m no longer dealing with a life ending situation as much as I’m dealing with a life altering situation. This in no way minimizes the fact that I have MS. But what it does change is how I go about dealing with it. Initially, I just took the medications & did our best when it came to trying to do the exercises & getting to our support group. But I entirely was more Angry then I was committed to dealing with a life that had been forever altered. And really, that’s perfectly normal & often to be expected. Once I started treating with medical cannabis, I noticed a reduction in symptoms & a greater range of motion. But with those swings came more medical marijuana benefits. I realized that it was up to me what sort of life I was going to live. Either I was going to be completely limited by our MS or I was going to deal with it & get the best I could out of our life. Without access to a legal weed store, I would not be where I am this week.
