I was in graduate school when I was involved in a bad car accident. I suffered a traumatic brain injury, which led to an extended stay in the hospital. After I was released, the symptoms lingered. I had a hard time keeping track of time, forgetfulness, anxiety and migraines. I had frequent nightmares, and also issues with balance. Not long after that, I was diagnosed with epilepsy, resulting from the trauma, and several types of seizures followed. Medication was not effective, and due to the nature of the epilepsy, surgery was not viable. I was prescribed various painkillers, anti-seizure pills along with antidepressants. The many side effects led to issues with my intestines. This went on for multiple years, and I became convinced that the medications were causing more harm than good. I had developed severe anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and Type II diabetes. I finally decided to try medicinal cannabis, as a last attempt at a solution, and it was a huge change for me. While all the regular options had failed to supply relief, I enjoyed immediate improvement. After a couple of weeks of smoking medical marijuana, the migraines and seizures nearly completely disappeared. I was able to quit taking antidepressants and my diabetes medication, and this led to an improvement in my memory. I then began taking cannabis orally, and it has delivered a medical miracle. Following so many disappointments, it feels awesome to return to the person I once was. CBD and THC have helped me with all the different types of seizures, when nothing else was effective. I am so thrilled to have found the healing powers of medical cannabis, and I plan to share my story with others.
