Nobody wants to deal with an eating disorder.
- And really, I was able to ignore what was happening to me for a really long time.
Yet thanks to medical marijuana, I’m learning what it means to feel like food is not the enemy. For much of my life, prior to cannabis flower products, that’s exactly the way I viewed food. It was a temptation and a curse put on me to keep me from looking like everyone else. I so wanted to look like the people in the magazines but my body just wouldn’t comply. And it was all foods fault really. So I starved, binged, purged and then did it all over again for over a decade. But finally, that sort of behavior came back to bite me and my body was just so unhealthy and depleted. Finally, I got some help. The therapist I see is really wonderful and I’m learning a lot. There are a lot of deep seated reasons that I have body image issues and we’re working through that. But this therapist is also helping me to eat healthy and view food as both fuel and vitality. That’s where the cannabis products come in. When I got access to the legal weed shop, they were able to steer me to the sort of cannabis products that help the most with appetite. I had gotten to the point that I just couldn’t even get a healthy appetite. I was always so used to starving. I’m so pleased with the results of me getting help and very thankful that medical marijuana is part of it.
