It’s been really difficult seeing one of my very best friends deal with the dementia from Alzheimer’s disease at such a relatively young age.
We are both in our early sixties but are facing such different challenges.
Getting older isn’t a whole lot of fun physically for me but I manage with better diet, more rest and consistent but gentler exercise. My friend has way more on her plate. But with the help of the medical marijuana dispensary, my friend is dealing with her condition more comfortably. And honestly, with something like Alzheimer’s, comfort is really just so important. My friend is still in the earlier stages of the disease and she has periods of complete and total clarity. Yet, those periods are also interrupted with disorientation and confusion. The cannabis gummies she uses daily really make a difference. She explained it as she is simply more calm and quicker to simply relax when the confusion and disorientation occur. The cannabis products allow my friend a sense of peace with her condition that she just didn’t have before. It’s such a sad and terrible thing for my friend to be going through. And yet, she does so just as she lived her life with as much positivity and perspective as possible. Thankfully, medical marijuana benefits her in staying positive, comfortable and much more calm. I know that this situation is very unlikely to get better. But I’m ever so thankful that my friend has access to the cannabis dispensary and the caring, kind people who work there.
