Before I discovered medical cannabis, I consistently felt love I was walking with a dark cloud over my head, then smiling at people was the last thing I wanted to do, and more times than not, I stayed in the house, so I did not need to talk to anyone, then my depression had gotten so terrible that I was taking all the mirrors out of my house, so I did not need to look at myself, and i could see the physical changes that were happening because of depression, however when I last went to my psychologist, he wanted to up the amount of depression medication I was taking, but I refused.
I told him I had been reading in a medical magazine about the use of medical cannabis, and how it could help with depression. I understood it could also cause depression to worsen, however no more so than adding current depression medication or upping the dosage of the medication I was taking, and there was less opportunity of my committing suicide with the marijuana than there was decreasing medications! He had read the same article I had about medical marijuana, and said it wouldn’t hurt to try it, however unblessedly, he could not supply me the certification I needed to get a medical marijuana ID card. He sent me to a colleague of his who lived in another city, and told me he could help me. It only took 3 weeks before I had a medical marijuana ID card in hand, and only a couple more weeks until I was feeling the effects of the medical marijuana, and after weaning me off the antidepressants, and putting me on a regimen of medical cannabis, my life has been easier than it has been for the last 15 years.
