I was suffering from severe anxieties and I was looking for an easy way out.
- I thought of finding the easiest way out, and all I could think of was suicide.
My parents had always told me that taking your own life didn’t solve the problem. It just left the family to figure it out and wonder why you didn’t ask for help. I thought of this and knew they were right, but I also knew I needed some help. My anxieties were driving me crazy. When my psychiatrist told me about getting a medical marijuana card, I was hesitant. I had always promised my parents I would never use drugs, but a medical doctor was prescribing it for me. He told me marijuana was only what people made. If you were using marijuana for medicinal purposes, it was medical marijuana and a way to help myself. If I was using marijuana just to get high, it was drugs in the worst form. I just wanted something that would help me to relax at night and get out of my own head. Once I started sleeping at night, I was sure I would be feeling much better. The doctor agreed with my self-diagnosis and told me to go online and go to my state’s website. I found information on how to apply for a medical marijuana ID card. Once I put in the application, he would put in his diagnosis, and after paying for the medical marijuana ID card, I would have it in a couple of weeks. He was right about the timing, and it was the smartest move I had ever made. I was finally able to sleep all night thanks to the medical marijuana, and it made a huge difference in my life.
