I went through a really tough childhood and I saw a lot of domestic violence that made me 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 me that it was perfectly normal to feel like that and it made me feel much better. The therapist also suggested 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 know that marijuana could help me but I was willing to try anything if it would make me feel less suicidal. I honestly didn’t feel like anything was going to help. Medical and recreational marijuana has worked wonders. I smoke in the morning and I smoke marijuana in the afternoon. I only smoke enough to calm down my nerves. When my nerves are calm, so am i. My nerves are overactive due to the domestic abuse. One day I might be able to sit down and actually talk about all of the things that happened to me when I was a kid. I am certainly hopeful that the therapist will continue to work with me. Medical marijuana and lots of therapy can definitely help with the symptoms of ptsd.
