Currently, I’m in two different sorts of therapy.
I’m seeing a physical therapist to recover from my physical trauma.
And I’m seeing a psychologist for help with recovering from the emotional and mental trauma. And I’m using the assistance of the staff from the local cannabis spot to help me get the most out of both therapies. I endured a random act of violence and survived. That’s the most important thing that I try to keep in front of me. I’m alive and have a life I want to lead. But I also have a recovery to focus on as well. I was broken both mentally and physically after the event and cannabis products are helping me find a new normal. I think that is one of the marijuana benefits that I wasn’t quite expecting. There is a hopefulness that comes through when I’m using either indica, sativa or hybrid strains. Yet, each one of these also works in specific ways for specific parts of my recovery. The indica strains are the most helpful when it comes to getting all I can from my physical therapy. The indica strains help so much with inflammation and range of motion. When it comes to my talk therapy, the sativa products work best for me. Sativa helps me feel safe in my own skin and be positive about going forward. And hybrid strains are something that I’m still learning about. But I’m just so grateful to live in a state where I can access a cannabis dispensary. Without access to my local cannabis spot, I’m not sure just where I’d be on my road to recovering from what happened to me.
