When I was much younger, I played a lot of sports.
In college, the coach wanted me to inject steroids into my knees so I could run faster and play harder.
I didn’t know that there was anything wrong with that until 10 years later when my knees could no longer support my body. I had to get both of them replaced. Since then I have been in a lot of pain. Getting both of my knees replaced means that I can walk again, but I still have a great deal of pain. After the surgery, the doctor told me that I could qualify for medical marijuana. Medical marijuana was still new to the area but the doctor had a friend that would be able to write me a prescription. The doctor urged me to meet with his friend. I read a lot of information about medical marijuana and I really didn’t know if it was the right decision for me. I waited a couple of months until I finally made my decision. I was in pain and I didn’t think that anything could make it worse. I also didn’t think that anything would be able to make the pain better. The doctor said that my pain levels would decrease if I use medical marijuana and he was correct. I have much more flexibility and less swelling in my knee. I have less pain in my back and I generally feel less anxiety, worry, and fear. I sleep better at night as well and that is something that I did not expect. I haven’t slept well in years.
