Sometimes I have a lot of trouble sleeping at night.
I lay there awake for hours and hours and all I can do is stare at the ceiling and wait for morning to come.
I know it drives my wife crazy, because I toss and turn a lot and it keeps her awake. I wished that I could find some type of relief. Someone at work recommended medical marijuana, but I wasn’t sure that I was ready to go down that route. Insomnia was causing a lot of problems during the day. I was having trouble getting my work completed on time and my boss was getting frustrated. I didn’t want to lose my job, so I decided to talk to the doctor. I was surprised when the doctor actually recommended medical marijuana as well. I certainly didn’t expect that from the doctor. He told me that there were a lot of studies that proved great results in insomnia patients when they were treated with marijuana regularly. He sent me to a place that had specialists that were able to write a prescription for medical marijuana. If I was living in a state with recreational marijuana laws, I wouldn’t have even had to go through all of this trouble. I would have been able to go right down to the dispensary and pick something up just like I would do at the pharmacy if the doctor prescribed something different. Instead, I had to wait 10 days before I could actually see the doctor and then after that I had to wait an additional 7 to 10 business days before the paperwork arrived in the mail. The process is long and not helpful when it comes to the patient and the patience needs.
