When I was 15 years old, I got into a car accident.
- I was not with my parents when that accident occurred.
My best friend and I were in the car with his mom. We were on our way back from hockey practice and a drunk driver ran through a red light and smashed into the side of the vehicle. My parents had to come get me from the hospital. I had several cuts and scrapes, but I was otherwise okay. Weeks after the accident, I was having headaches and spells of dizziness. My mom decided to take me to the specialist to make sure that I was okay after the accident. The doctor found damages that were missed in the initial report. The head trauma was exactly why I was having such terrible headaches and dizziness. The doctor put me on a low dose migraine medication for 6 months to help with the symptoms. I still get headaches every single day and I have trouble working and living 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 absolutely helps a great deal. My parents were allowed to get me 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 doctor had anticipated. Unfortunately, I will probably be on something for headaches for the rest of my life now.
