My husband and I were feeling much better, and I was able to carry on a conversation without crying
When I got my diagnosis of cancer, I thought my life was over. I didn’t know what was going to happen. All I knew was that I was scared and not ready to die. My thoughts were quickly turning to depression and anger. It was bad enough that I had a lot of pain related to the cancer, and no amount of medication was easing the pain. I was talking to my oncologist and he offered to give me a prescription for marijuana. He said it would help with the pain, the depression, and the nausea that went with the upcoming chemo. My appetite was already being affected, and the precious nutrients I had to help my body fight the cancer, were being depleted by my not eating. I was given a special diet and a plan for meditation, along with the prescription for marijuana. I got my medical marijuana card and I went to the legal medical marijuana dispensary. I talked to the woman at the front counter and she was a big help in getting my marijuana order filled. I took the marijuana products home and I looked over all the information she had given me. Within a week of using my marijuana products, I was already feeling better. My husband and I were feeling much better, and I was able to carry on a conversation without crying. I would have never thought marijuana would be able to help with my cancer. I am grateful to my oncologist for giving me the prescription for medical marijuana. I couldn’t have survived cancer without the help of medical marijuana.
