I have a seizure disorder that is treated with 0.5mg, 4 X day, yet I'm having problems getting medical marijuana. I also have: Generalized Torsion Dystonia, Torticollis, Spasmodic Dysphonia
, Migraines, 5 herniated discs, with 3 (cervical) having been fused. Along with Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis, Degenerative Disc Disease in all discs, diagnosed in the early 1970's, severe chronic depression, 3 strokes, 1 heart attack, Periphial Neuropathy in all limbs, Polyneuropathy that has progressed to my abdomen. This keeps me from being able to lift my feet, so I have to slide each foot a few inches. After a small amount of walking, I can not walk at all. Thyroid
disorder, Severe chronic depression, I need right hip surgery and knee surgery, broken 19 bones due to falls. I was severely abused as a child, in every way possible. I blocked all but the emotional abuse, but the strokes brought back now unblocked memories and I obsess over them, due to brain damage. I've been in ICU twice, the second time on a ventilator and my family was told I might die. This is an undiagnosed condition along with my right side being paralyzed twice. There is even more. I have been disabled since 1994 and because of Vasovagal syncopy, I have to lay in bed until 5 or 6pm, in an attempt to avoid passing out. I tried marijuana and for the first time since my 20's, I experienced total pain relief with Marijuana. The obsessing stopped, along with no seizures, no migraines, etc. I only tried it as my neurologist told me many times over a 6 year period that if medical marijuana ever becomes legal in GA, he will prescribe it. Well, he didn't for reasons that hold water as well as a boat made of window screen. I would never have tried it if I had any doubt that he wouldn't prescribe it. Now, I know there is a safe medication that makes me feel almost normal. I need a caring doctor as this one tests for marijuana, etc. at each visit.
