My dad has entirely excruciating anxietyâ€¦ He is someone that just bottles up everything and doesn’t talk about it.
- He seems thrilled but then he just loses it.
He gets so depressed and super anxious, then it got to the point where going to labor was hard on our dad. He could barely make himself get out of bed, on the drive to labor he would need to pull over multiple times to calm his heart rateâ€¦ Since our father is a farmer that operates heavy machinery and works everyday, all year long, I knew something needed to change! At first our dad was taking prescription pills that the doctor provided him! Getting the pills was horrible! The doctor wouldn’t give him a prescription without checking him for prostate cancer which was invasive and horrible for our father, then filling that prescription downtown was consistently a concern because of calling it in and remembering to pick it up. I knew the pills didn’t entirely help much either. I then found that people with anxiety use medical cannabis. I got our dad an appointment with a weird doctor that deals with medical weed. The guy just asked our dad a few questions and wrote him a prescriptionâ€¦ My father doesn’t have to come back yearly or do anything other than renew the prescription. My dad can even have his medical weed delivered to the home when he wants it. Things are simpler and the medical cannabis seems to be helping our dad more than the pills ever did. He undoubtedly prefers the decreased amount of labor to get his medical treatment.
