I have issues with anxiety. I get especially stressed when I drive in heavy traffic or inclement weather. I don’t like worrying about following directions or finding a parking place. I start to sweat, clench my teeth and feel a dull pain radiate down my spine. I am worried about getting lost and getting into an accident. I try to avoid driving to unfamiliar destinations and taking major highways. If there is any chance of heavy rains, snow flurries or icy pavement, I refuse to drive. I think my fears are caused by bad experiences. I’ve been involved in several accidents. I’ve lost control of my vehicle during a winter blizzard and slid off the road. It helps that I work from home. I rarely need to drive anywhere other than to visit friends or family. I can shop for everything from groceries and cleaning supplies to furniture online and have the items delivered right to my door. I am especially relieved that the closest cannabis dispensary also includes delivery service. I manage my anxiety by smoking flower and consuming edibles. In the evening, after work, lighting up a joint is great for mellowing out. If I feel a panic attack coming on, I take a seat on my patio, light up and work my way through it. My self-destructive thoughts often make it difficult to sleep. I like indicas in the form of beverages. I drink a cannabis-infused cola, tonic, lemonade or add a tincture to my tea before bed and sleep much better. Having my choice of cannabis delivered to my door alleviates a great deal of problems for me.
