Perhaps the best part of being in a hideous bike accident is the fact that I don’t remember it at all.
There are parts of that moring that I can recall.
But getting on the bike was not anywhere close to one of my memories. This is probably another blessing in disguise regarding what I’m dealing now. Another one of the blessings that I’m so thankful for is that I live somewhere that medical marijuana is legal. The fact that I was able to navigate the cannabis regulations in order to get access to a cannabis dispensary is essential in my recovery. I was hit hard from the side by a car while riding my bike. The hit did all sorts of damage to my legs, a shoulder and my back. Fortunately though, my helmet kept my noodle together. My body was broken and my recovery was stalled. I was also working on an addiction to the pain meds. That’s when I pulled the trigger on figuring out how to get a medical marijuana card. After learning of the medical marijuana benefits for managing pain, I was in. What I didn’t realize was how motivating the cannabis products would end up being for me. Once I started with the medical marijuana, it didn’t take me all that long to wean off the pain meds. And from there, I was pleased to find a positive outlook and a renewed sense of purpose for my physical therapy. Medical marijuana had just about everything to do with all of that. Plus, I’m not going to end up a junkie using medical marijuana as a pain management tool.
