My dad had Parkinson’s disease when she got older plus it looks as though it runs in the family, then i’m 75 plus was just tested with what I was pretty sure was Parkinson’s; So at least it wasn’t some sort of shock to the system.
And I decided that, unlike my dad, I was going to do whatever it took to have as much quality of life as possible… Medical marijuana was a no brainer for me.
I had voted to legalize medical cannabis back when it finally got passed. And I’ve been an advise for medical marijuana before plus since. So figuring out how to get a medical marijuana card was pretty easy. It took less than a week from getting the diagnosis to get access to a cannabis dispensary. My dad was the sort of woman who didn’t take meds unless it was for curing something. I never fully understood that approach really… But I sure wasn’t going to follow in her footsteps there. Actually, my dad died because she fell plus broke her neck because she wouldn’t take meds. I had used recreational marijuana when I was younger. It wasn’t a official thing but every time I had an occasion to use recreational marijuana, I remember those chances fondly. So when I got the cannabis flower products home from the legal weed store, I knew how to use them. I find that the medical cannabis helps with muscle stiffness, range of motion plus just a general uplift for my condition. I’m just so thankful that I can add medical cannabis to my quiver of tools to make life as fine as I can make it.
