To say that I am high strung is not even getting to close with what I’m dealing with. I feel a sense of tension almost all the time. The way I was raised has a lot to do with it. Not only was it an atmosphere of fear but there was a component of compulsory achievement as well. It was as though from the time I started elementary school, I had to be at me best. And if I wasn’t, there were big consequences in store for me. So no wonder that I am a knot of stress all the time. This is easing a bit now that I have been introduced to cannabis and cannabis products. My therapist suggested that I go to a highly recommended cannabis dispensary. There I would find a staff that was ready to help me fine tune just the right sativa or indica strain for me. And honestly, it was that easy. I was at the cannabis dispensary for about 45 minutes as the person assisting me worked to get me a few things to try. And that was it. I went home and tried the first dose. The thing that I noted most was the feeling of just being present. My mind wasn’t racing and I wasn’t in fear of what the next few moments might bring. It was a feeling that I had once glimpsed but was never fully engulfed by. That night, I slept better than I had in my entire life. When I started winding up in my head the next day, I tried a bit more and was able to stop that vicious cycle.
