Vicki: Depression & Anxiety

RxLeaf

I’ve been off the pharmaceuticals for 10 years now, and I can’t describe the difference.

My name is Vicki and I’ve tried so many meds for anxiety and depression: Seroquel (1200mg/day), Trazodone, Lorcet, Clonazepam, and a few more I can’t remember.
I was a walking zombie, scared of everything. I started to have really bad panic attacks – couldn’t even drive. I was so depressed that I tried to commit suicide…more than once. And each time I did that, they just put me on more meds.

I got tired of it all.

I smoked cannabis after a surgery and found out it made me feel better so I told my Psychiatrist that I found that weed helps me. He said, “If you’re using marijuana then I can’t prescribe you anything.” I said okay and walked out of his office.

I quit all of my meds right then and there. Probably not the best idea, but I was sick and tired of not living life, not being able to enjoy my kids; not wanting my kids to remember me like this – always wanting to die.

So, I just started smoking. I feel so much better. My life is worth living now. I’m bipolar and weed slows my mind down enough that I can think real thoughts and plan the future.

I know it’s not for everyone, but it IS for me. It is my medication. I can love my four grand babies now. I have been off all pharmaceuticals for ten years and I can’t even describe the difference. I hope my story helps someone…

I am 53-years old and I smoke everyday. Life is good.
