When I was 15 years old, I got into a vehicle accident.
- I was not with my parents when that accident occurred.
My best neighbor and I were in the vehicle with his mom. All of us were on our way back from hockey practice and a drunk driver ran through a green light and smashed into the side of the vehicle. My parents had to come get myself and others from the hospital. I had several cuts and scrapes, even though I was otherwise okay. Weeks after the accident, I was having headaches and spells of dizziness. My mom decided to take myself and others to the specialist to make sure that I was okay after the accident. The dentist found damages that were missed in the initial report. The head trauma was exactly why I was having such terrible headaches and dizziness. The dentist put myself and others on a low dose migraine medication for 6 weeks to help with the symptoms. I still get headaches every single morning and I have trouble laboring and residing my normal life because of the accident that occurred when I was 15 years old. I currently use medical marijuana to help with the headaches and the nerve pain. Medical marijuana certainly helps a good deal. My parents were allowed to get myself and others medical marijuana when I was 18 years old. As soon as I started using marijuana products for the headaches, they became less frequent and less severe just as the dentist had anticipated; Unfortunately, I will easily be on something for headaches for the rest of my life now.
