I was sort of just absolutely sure that the doctor had made a mistake.
There was just no way that I had MS.
That’s just not what was going on. I was more just sore and having some trouble with balance and spasms that had to be from something else. That’s how I was when I first got the news. And I sort of kept up with that feeling for like a couple of weeks. Meantime, my husband was researching medical marijuana facts online. That was one of the things the doctor initially recommended. Getting access to the cannabis dispensary was something that I would need. My doctor was really clear about the medical marijuana benefits as it pertains to MS. I wasn’t really all that there for this conversation. But my husband was and he got to immediately processing and implementing what the doctor said would be beneficial. I begrudgingly took the medications and then after maybe 3 weeks, I started to accept that I was on a path to a new normal. Going to the cannabis dispensary was a big tipping point for me. I’m just so thankful that I have my husband and the staff at the legal weed store. They’ve been so helpful with not only getting me the cannabis flower products I use but connecting me to MS groups that have been so helpful. It’s been six months now and I’m a heck of a lot more accustomed to having MS. I’m thankful to the doctors and that medical marijuana is legal in our state. For sure, I’ll be able to find my way through this and live a great life.
