There is not a single thing funny or ironic about living with chronic pain.
- I can attest to that given I have lived with it for nearly 10 years.
But now that I have found such relief with medical marijuana, I have to acknowledge the irony there. I’m using the chronic for chronic pain. This was pointed out to me by my college age son and we both had a great laugh. Let me tell you, there is far more laughter in my life now that I have access to a weed dispensary. Prior to using cannabis, I rarely even smiled. But it’s not so easy to smile when you are living with pain that is just so totally debilitating. There were periods of time where I could do nothing but try to lay still. And when that didn’t work, I took meds that basically just knocked me out. This is no way to live a life, I can assure you. So when my son sent my some information on medical marijuana, I was open to looking into the possibility. I had never used pot before and sort of had a preconceived negative feeling to marijuana in general. However, the more I read and learned, the more I realized that what I knew about cannabis was wrong. Once I got my prescription for medical marijuana, I called the weed store for pot delivery because I was embarrassed to go in. Now that I have gotten my life back to a large degree thanks to cannabis, I am proud to spread the word on medical marijuana. But I still like the convenience of the cannabis delivery.
