It's not about getting high! and if that's what you're using your medication for...you're using it wrong.
If you're avoiding your life so you can stay at home and get high...you're using it wrong. If you are not more active in your life because of your choices...you're using it wrong. (just my opinion)
No matter what medication you're choosing to use...its use is supposed to help you be as active in your life as you can possibly be...right? Isn't that what you're taking it for? To help minimize your pain so you can be involved in your life? So is that what you're doing? Are you more active in your life because of your medication choices?
I've heard so many times...you just want to get high. NO! it's not that at all.
And I'm not here to push medicinal marijuana on anyone! But I am here to discuss what our options are and medicinal marijuana is a viable alternative. (whether you like it or not...and...) I do realize that this alternative is not for everyone...just like prescriptions aren't for everyone either. It's a personal choice.
You may call me a pot-head and that's your opinion. Do you call yourself a pill-popper every time you reach for your medication choice? I doubt it. Don't label mine and I won't label yours. Deal?
For the last two years I've been encouraging you to find what works best for you...to prepare for and learn to manage your pain so you can be as active in your life as you're able. THAT is my message.
Are we clear now?
