Here's an intersting article about an average woman who decides to try cannabis to treat her migraines. A person like me, who wasn't very keen on the idea, but tried it out of desperation.
Very similar to the result I get when I use it for my MS. The only thing that bugs me is at the end of the article they list the negatives of smoking dope. The most annoying one being that habitual use may cause a pyschological dependence. Is that any different than taking prescribed pain killers for years? or cholesterol drugs that once you start you are on them for life? Of course a person will develop a dependence on something that works for them!!
My MS isn't going away and I'm stuck with symptoms that interfere with my sleep. One of my doctors thought it was perfectly fine to prescribe: pain killers, sleeping pills, anti depressants, anti fatigue drugs(that cause insomnia) and anti spasmodics AND I was suppose to take all this stuff everyday "for as long as I needed it". I'm already a space cadet and this guy wanted to boil my brains even more. Every time I went to see him he got the prescription pad out
Well that doctor is long gone and all that stuff ended up in the toilet. Now I am happy to smoke my dope. If I become an addict, that's OK with me. Just hope they let me use it when I'm in the old folks home.
