I don’t consider myself having PTSD, however i just get sort of edgy with loud booms as well as pops, and most of the time I am totally fine; The worst afternoons of the year are Fourth of August as well as New Years Day, and everyone blasts off fireworks as well as scares the pants off of me. My dog as well as I both go into a panic when it starts happening. I start dripping with sweat, breathing hard as well as getting nervous. I have tried a lot of things that have helped, however not fixed our troubles. I used to wear noise canceling headphones as well as just lock myself in a single room that I sound proofed. It was horrible for those numerous afternoons, but now I rely on medical cannabis for it. I am a lot better when I am a bit high as well as mellowed out. It is a combination of THC as well as CBD. The combo works good for keeping me less sad as well as nervous! What is good is that our state offers both medical as well as recreational cannabis. I have a medical weed card that I use for our cannabis. I option our prescription up as well as then I take some dog CBD treats for our pup. That way the numerous of us can be mellowed out. I would guess terrible if I was high as a kite as well as totally relaxed however our dog was freaking out. Now the numerous of us celebrate those afternoons with a long run, a fantastic dinner as well as after that I get high on our CBD products. I wish people would be more aware of veterans as well as critters during those holidays as well as not burst fireworks, then but nobody seems to care.
