This is about alternatives…

I can’t tell you how freeing it is to be in control of my own pain management decisions. For the year that I’ve been a medical cannabis patient, I no longer had to visit a pain doctor every month, sitting like a child at the feet of a man who controlled access to my pain relief (while he spent my office time talking to other patients on the phone)…

I like to compare my nervous system on chronic pain as an emergency alert system that is broken; instead of only signaling in an emergency, the system continually broadcasts alerts in a never-ending loop (any Lost fans in the audience?). Unfortunately, no one really knows how to fix this system, and I’m of the opinion that once it’s broken, it can’t be fixed…

After over 25 years of chasing pain relief, I am here to tell you that relief is best thought of as momentary. Those brief seconds in time, when you are able to miraculously push the pain aside — in your mind. And cannabis allows for more of those brief seconds in time.

These brief seconds in time can give a pain patient the impetus to move when their brain is telling them it hurts too much to do so. And the additional pain caused by physical activity is more easily managed when you know that there is adequate medicine awaiting you, if and when you need it…
