Ever since my diagnosis with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome in 2009, I’ve had doctors and other people with chronic pain suggest that I try medical marijauna/THC. But, because of my conditioning in AA and fear of relapse, I’ve been afraid to try, even though I’ve been really miserable and in so much chronic pain that I am constantly dissociative.
I finally got my medical marijuana card last week from one of my doctors, and decided to try microdosing with THC yesterday. I went to the local pot shop, and got some gluten free/vegan candy. It was 10 mg THC, which I broke into quarters. I then went ahead and ate one quarter of it.
At first, when I noticed some effects of it, I got really anxious. But then, low and behold, as the chronic pain went down, I felt myself relaxing and dissociating way less. Within a couple of hours, my treatment-resistant depression started to lift for the first time in almost 5 years. I felt happier and more relaxed than I have been too since I got diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2009.
Today my PTSD is still better, and I’m feeling better and more confident overall. And, I can actually feel my body way better today as well. I can’t believe what a difference one microdose of THC made for me. I’m trying to figure out now how often I should do this. I’m thinking, maybe once or twice a week. I know others who microdose who do it every day, but I still don’t want to do that because it can be habit forming.
So overall, this was a very good experience. I’m glad that I tried it!
