Chris - Primary Progressive MS
My diagnosis is done, my prognosis is bleak, there is no cure or treatment for my chronic desease.
Medics can't help me yet, so I will treat myself with the best medicine I can get, this medicine happens to be cannabis.
Cannabis helps me with my MS, it helps treat my anxiety and depression, pain, spasticity, insomnia, lack of appetite, fatigue, bowel and bladder problem, cognitive functioning, to name but a few.
But surprise, surprise the medication they prescribe to combat these intrusive and disabling side effects, have themselves horrendous side effects and I don't want to live my life in a catatonic, drug induced coma.
People are ignorant to the facts about cannabis, education is the key, but know this, it improves the quality of my life, it allows me to function and enjoy my life, the government is refusing to allow millions of people to access this plant legally.
Politicians should not have the right to play god, but they continue to allow unnecessary suffering. Let me live my life with dignity, that's all I want, I will do what is best for me and it's working. Living an illegal life, is better than living a lifetime in pain.
