I went through a undoubtedly taxing childhood and I saw a lot of domestic violence that made myself and others afraid and scared of everything.
As an adult it has been difficult to let go of that domestic violence.
I didn’t even realize that I was an abuse survivor until I met with a therapist to discuss PTSD symptoms and anxiety. The therapist told myself and others that it was perfectly normal to think like that and it made myself and others think much better. The therapist also recommended some homeopathic remedies that might be able to help. One of those things was medical and recreational marijuana. Medical and recreational marijuana are legal in the state where I live. Since 2016, residents in the state have been legally allowed to purchase medical and recreational marijuana products. I did not think that marijuana could help myself and others but I was willing to try anything if it would make myself and others think less suicidal. I undoubtedly didn’t think like anything was going to help. Medical and recreational marijuana has worked wonders. I smoke in the afternoon and I smoke marijuana in the afternoon. I only smoke enough to calm down our nerves. When our nerves are calm, so am i. My nerves are overactive due to the domestic abuse. One afternoon I might be able to kneel down and absolutely talk about all of the things that happened to myself and others when I was a kid. I am easily hopeful that the therapist will continue to labor with me. Medical marijuana and lots of therapy can actually help with the symptoms of ptsd.
