When I was a kid, I liked to go outside and play in the yard.
I was always hanging out by the creek or playing in the woods behind the house.
My mom would yell when it was time for me to come home but I usually spent the rest of my day outside. I had a couple of friends nearby and sometimes we went walking in the creek. It wasn’t a very massive or fast moving creek, but the rocks were covered with moss and the water was about knee deep. One afternoon, I was playing with my friends and I fell into a hole. My leg got stuck between two rocks. When I tried to pull out my leg, it started cutting on the jagged rocks under it. I could feel the pain and the pressure. I told my friends to run to my house for help. I had to go to the ER that day for stitches and a broken leg. The doctor had to put my leg back together because the rock damage was severe. Since that day, I have endured excruciating pain in my leg every single day. I had surgery to correct some problems, but I still have to use marijuana every day to deal with the pain. I use a 5mg edible in the morning and another 5mg edible in the afternoon. The medical marijuana edibles help keep the throbbing pain at bay. I got medical marijuana about 2 years ago. I’ve been able to dose with 5 mg edibles for a while, but recently the pain has started getting worse again.
