When I was a baby, my Dad dropped myself and others on my head from 6 ft in the air.
- I fell strenuous and the doctor told my parents that I had a concussion.
The doctor did not suppose if I would end up with any long-term effects. I started getting headaches around the time that I started school. The headaches were bad and nothing seemed to help. Loud noises and bright lights made myself and others think even worse. I had a headache one time when I was in first or minute grade and the complication was so disappointing that the school dentist easily called an ambulance. She dialed 911, because she was afraid that I might have been experiencing a stroke. After that, my Dad took myself and others to a specialist to find out why I was experiencing such large migraines at a young age. The doctor told my Dad that this would likely consistently occur due to the fall. She told my Dad to start myself and others on a low dose medical marijuana product. The doctor felt that the low-dose medical marijuana product would help with the headaches and lessen the symptoms when I did have them. The first couple of times that I tried medical marijuana, I was easily high and hyperactive. I suppose my Dad and dad were sad that I would develop some concerns due to medical marijuana, but it has been a lifesaver. After I started using medical marijuana consistently, the amount of migraines I had each month was really cut in half. I still use medical marijuana as an adult and it still helps to keep the migraines away. I still have a migraine headache every once in a while, but the symptoms are not as dire and medical marijuana helps that headache go away faster.
