Tammy: Fibromyalgia


For over 12 years, I tried different pain medications with no relief. When I tried cannabis, it was honestly like my life changed from night to day.

My name is Tammy and I am 57-years old. I want to tell my story about coming back from hell to living again.

I came from being a successful respiratory therapist to being completely disabled, almost overnight. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and then had back surgery for two ruptured discs. I suffered tremendously with pain.

The doctors put me on many different medications to treat my pain and depression over a 12-year period. I became a recluse and lived in chronic, constant pain due to the fibromyalgia.

Then, I moved to Oregon. I got my medical cannabis card and made a trade for myself – the morphine pump they had placed in me eight years prior was removed and I took myself off most medications. I had a long road because my physical health was in poor shape and I weighed almost 200 pounds.

I began smoking medical cannabis full-time for pain control. It was honestly as though my life changed from night to day. I started feeling better immediately – both mentally and physically. I then begin an exercise regimen and started enjoying life. My weight has maintained around 115 pounds for five years now.

I still have medical issues, but I get around really well and I’m not living in chronic pain anymore. I wanted to share my story so others could see how cannabis could change their life.
