I Don't Take Any Meds, But...

I don't take any meds, but the weed helps to keep my mind from going in twenty different directions.  It is great stuff.

You got that right...made no sense. Then he posts a website for marijuana treatment. Kinda funny!

I'm sorry Ganeshan, but were you stoned while typing that? I can't understand you.

Well I used MJ for 13 years and although I credit it for saving my life, I also realized recently that I've never been able to get past my mood swings. I've grown very tired of them. Not trying to be a bummer but the herb has only been a short term solution for me. <br />
<br />
I also went for years hoping that I would make breakthroughs and considering meds to be just a way to block off my mind from true recovery. I finally gave up since I had not found that true recovery, only constant ups and downs. <br />
<br />
I have many very strong opinions about the pharma industry. I don't trust them at all but I gotta admit that once I tried meds I started to feel more clearheaded than I ever have (as an adult). I had feared that meds would make me a zombie (and they did when I took Depakote) and not allow me to be creative, emotional, etc. But the meds I'm on now (lamictal, wellbutrin, trazadone) seem to be working well. <br />
<br />
I'm more creative and writing the best songs of my life. They're tighter too and more well thought out. I'm not saying meds are for everyone. I also know all drugs affect people differently so MJ may be the answer for some. It just isn't a solution for me. I'll miss it but I've had to move on.

I have used Cannabis (Herb or Ganga I prefer to call it) to soften my mood swings, as an anti-psychotic and pain killer for 20 yrs now and I have really learned a lot thru going tru my illness without meds<br />
I get the creative insights and strength that weathering such intense moods swings allows for<br />
I use Cannabis tincture mostly, and it stops a bad too-painful episode in its tracks and allows me to be a (semi)functional mother and lover, even when I'm squashed flat by my illness or feeling desparate and distraught<br />
I have more info and recipes on my website<br />

Cannabis for BP rocks!!! (for me anyway)

Thanks Dhawk...you are definitely right on there. I've cut back quite a bit...usually only smoke late in the evenings. I used to smoke 24/7 but, like you said, tolerance builds and you just don't enjoy it anymore. It's like something you have to do to keep sane instead of something that just helps relax you.

Just dont start using it too much!! try to go as long as you can before smoking each time because once your tolerance goes up your gonna have to quit to get it back down again.ive been smoking marijuana for about 7 years im about to be 18 in a few days...at first it was just once in awhile just to get high but the past 2 years ive been smoking like every single day because i loved it so much but then my depression and bi polar and anger problems all kicked in sometime last year which is when i couldnt stop because of my problems, but after smoking solid for at least about a year straight maybe less depending on you, your tolerance will be at its end. just be carefull thats all i gotta say

Well I've been off pharmaceutical meds for a year and a half now and my life has never been better. It's not that I don't get depressed anymore but I am able to face it and make changes, get myself active, when I feel it getting deeper. I think a lot of mood stabilizers keep in you in such a state of mind that you have no control over anything. You're "zombiefied" or anesthetized rather than in a state of mind where you can work through emotional issues....really FEEL all those things that you need to feel, good and bad. I cry more now, laugh more, get angrier, but I get happier too. All my moods are more pronounced but that's the way life is right? It's an emotional rollercoaster but I won't let pharma companies force me to ride on the kiddie coasters.

i agree, i think alcohol is much more dangerous. i dont mind my son usuing marajuanna i just beg him not to drink alcohol. since my son has been smoking pot i have not had any problems with him, he has bi-polar and i went threw some hell but since he is doing this i have not had one problem , i wish they would legalize it at least for medical reasons

which is in and of itself quite dangerous but at least they won't be doing more than 20 mph! lol

Yeah, alcohol is much more dangerous than pot. About the only danger with pot is people driving while really high and not paying attention.

i am in the same line of thinking as puck ... it is ridiculous ...

I really can't understand why alcohol is legal and weed isn't It's so ludicrous, it's surreal. Generally people don't beat their wives, kill people on hi-ways, start fights in bars, etc etc...after they've smoked a bowl.

Hey Siddler, cool icon.

I haven't heard of those but I'll check it out. Thanks!

Hey you rockin' stoner,<br />
<br />
I knew this was you! It eases my mind, too. I'm bummed my stash is gone. History will view the illegilization of marij as another prohibition. <br />
