Hello . He has been using mj since he was about 20 , and he is now 45. He tells me that since he was a small child he was unable to relax or sleep well. He would lie in bed for hours before falling asleep, and he just assumed it was' normal'. Per his parents and sibs he was always very active. And hair trigger temper. He is, I strongly believe, undiagnosed ADHD. His mother is an RN and his father a PHD and both are vehemently opposed to psych meds. I am opposite of this and believe that meds are very necessary if a person has a chemical imbalance. Just as necessary as a cast is to a broken arm, or insulin is to diabetes. Interesting, everyone in his immediate family of origin is either alcohol or mj dependant. Seriously dependant.
When he quits, he becomes very angry, short fuse, racing thought. ... and he breaks things or is self abusive. He doesn't eat and is completely absent emotionally. He basically acts like a total ass until he either goes and buys more OR about a month passes. He then becomes quasi normal, but acts quite depressed (nothing seems to make him happy and he NEVER laughs. He is very resentful that' society' Makes him unable to smoke as he'd like. Sometimes when he quits mj he will get drunk all the time, when home. Honestly, as i write this I'm seeing what a horrible situation this is. I don't know how to resolve this mess because i Will have to uproot my kids and live who-knows-where, as i cannot afford to live here w/o his income but we are barely scraping by and could not afford separate apartments or whatever. If you have anything that could help I'd appreciate it. I'm drained from writing this. Yuck.
