Substance abuse: Medicinal vs. Recreational
I do know that eating raw cannabis causes some strong laxative action from what experts have said and I don't think it's recommended, although not 100% sure about the latter but pretty sure.Didj...I am working towards becoming natural. I am far behind you that's for sure. I wish someday I could be completely free and close friends and family and my doctor know this. My body is seriously damaged though at this point, it's too late maybe. I wish my nervous system would heal and I didn't need anything. When I go off pot then I end up needing xanax. I end up with such bad anxiety and panic attacks. Earlier this year in May I had an operation and was having real bad attacks. The meds were making me so sick...the xanax and darvacet, so I refused to take them and it got extremely bad. Which seemed to in turn by not taking them cause furthere damage to my nervous system. But taking them is like disintegrating to my system. I'm damned if I do and damned if I don't. It's not a good thing. I can't journal anymore cause of my hands being so bad, the nerves. It's super hard for me to close buttons on my daughters clothes...sometimes actually impossible. Xanax makes me turn yellow now...like drinking. Those tranq will literally kill me because my brain thinks it's alcohol...I start to get dope sick for it and I experience the same kind of withdrawl as alcohol. And Didj...once you become physically addicted to alcohol as bad as I did yes it is a disease...or morphs into one. I've had over 200 seizures from alcohol withdrawl. I stopped drinking once for 2 yrs...drank one night...and had seizures for the next 4 nights, as usual. Like I didn't skip a beat, kwim? Pot is the best medicine I've found so far. Do you really think you could help someone like me with your raw diet instruction? Think there's a better chance of recovery in a physical sense of healing? I am dead serious about what your opinion is. Because now like I can't stand chronic pain and it makes me irritable...which irritability is even worse than the pain. Sorry this is getting so long so btw. And I am still around the AA fellowship but rarely attend a mtg. anymore...just thought I'd add clarify that. They are still family to me. Because I could say a lot of stuff about AA and what I don't like about it...but that's another topic, lol.
