I had a traumatic childhood and now have severe mental challenges as a result. I suffer with PTSD, depression and anxiety. I have been on every conceivable pill out there. All have had very bad side affects, including two seizures and “brain zaps”, suicidal thoughts. I started with those medications when I was 9. Nothing worked. I started smoking Marijuana and since then have had no thoughts of suicide, better mood, college degree (BFA). I can’t find any where I’m at and am afraid of jail (Ptsd remember ) Since stopping I’ve been experiencing the same symptoms I had before. I have body memories from the trauma and weed is the only thing that takes it away. I’m actually moving to another State ASAP in hopes of getting a prescription legally and to get my life back. Thanks for reading.
