I remember as a young girl having an issue with my moods.
I would get this sensation that washed over me.
I knew immediately I was going to have a bad day, all day long. I didn’t realize this was an early sign of depression. It flared up in college but was manageable with talking about it to my friends, doing sports and being involved in school clubs. After I graduated, joined the workforce and was on my own, my depression came back with a vengeance. I was at first embarrassed about it. So I am sad all the time, who really cares? I then started to get nervous when my depression was affecting my relationships with my friends and family. I also started struggling at work. The best thing I ever did was get a medical cannabis card. I took the extra steps to get it and it was worth it. Now I rely on medical pot in order to treat my depression. I need to smoke everyday. My depression is just too bad at this point. However, it is nice having something that perks me up and keeps me positive. Smoking cannabis is easy too. I just vape with cannabis oil when I need some relief. With a click of a button, I get the taste of something delicious and I feel so much better. I don’t know where I would be if my state wasn’t a medical pot state. I am really fortunate that I am not required to pop pills like people were 20 years ago.
