For any person who has never had a kidney stone, let me tell you from experience that you do not want something like that.
At 1 point, I told my spouse I wanted to go back as well as go through all my childbirths again instead of having the pain from the kidney stone.
As I waited to be seen in the emergency room, I impatiently paced the waiting room. After what felt like forever, the healthcare worker brought me into the triage room, and she began asking me about the medications I use as well as if I used any illegal drugs? I told her I used medical marijuana. She stopped what she was writing as well as turned to look at me. She quietly applauded me as well as told me she was proud to hear that. She could not easily believe the amount of people my age who were using drugs under the guise of prescriptions, when I could be using natural drugs such as marijuana to help with various ailments. The healthcare worker said she wished more people had the guts to go as well as get a medical marijuana card as I had. At that point, I was in so much pain that I didn’t particularly care what the healthcare worker was saying, however it wasn’t until a week or 2 later, that I really set back as well as heard the words she was talking about. For a healthcare worker to tell me that using marijuana was healthier than taking certain prescriptions, took me aback. If I didn’t think about what she had said, I would not have been using medical marijuana… Hearing a healthcare worker tell me that, made it seem much better than what I truly thought it was. I was no longer using an illegal drug legally, but using a medication that was actually helping.
