There is a great deal of controversy over the use of marijuana for treatment of any illness, much less the treatment of one that is largely seen as a mental illness. Many self-medicate — as I did — without a clear direction on recovery.
Following my doctor’s advice, I complemented my reframing therapy with marijuana to help me through the process.
In this book, I want share my experience with the use of marijuana to treat emotional, mental and physical symptoms of PTSD… the good and the bad. I also want to share my experience with reframing — using self-therapy to explore the emotions, mental behaviors and memories that caused me the most pain and reframe their importance in my life.
I have gained so much in this process. My life has perspective. My experiences have meaning. I am closer to my family than I have ever been. I am finally experiencing those precious moments of peace and happiness I had hoped for.
I find myself in the maintenance phase of my recovery. A life examined has given way to the comfort of acceptance and the healing power of forgiveness is the precious result of this process. By sharing my story, I hope others will find their own path to recovery.
