Yes! Depending on if you live in a “medical marijuana state” meaning that marijuana for medical use is legal on a state level. (still illegal federally) I know some states, like Hawaii, make it moderately difficult to gain the prescription, by making you jump through a few hoops to prove just how necessary it is to your health.
But marijuana has actually benefited me immensely in regards to lupus and fibromyalgia. It relieves so much pain/ flare ups and helps a lot with restless nights.
What state do you live in?
I’d be happy to answer any more questions about it.
I’m currently tweaking my blog and adding a couple pages to it.
But Most importantly,
I’ve added a support section on my <3 tab that will include blogs of people who suffer from illnesses such as Lupus, Fibromyalgia, IBS, Gilbert’s Syndrome, & Celiac Disease.
(Please reply to this if you’d like to be included on that list. I’m making this in mind for people that need/want someone to relate/talk to. I just want people to know that they are NOT alone. I personally have come across some amazing people who have helped me change my perspective of living with these ailments. )
I know quite of a few tumblers that that are living with these invisible illnesses but I certainly dont want to put you on blast with out permission, so please let me know if you’re willing to accept messages/questions from other fellow suffer-ers. <3
Hope all of you are well and even better, in remission <3
Yeah actually, I feel a whole lot better. Usually I wake up and smoke a bowl, go to work for 8 hours then come home and smoke. Durring the hours when I’m at work I feel awful. Its a gnarly pain that is never soothed but with in 20 mins of smoking my “bowels”/stomach feels a lot more calm.
Marijuana is a natural anti-inflammatory and reduces the swelling/inflammation almost immediately. It relaxes the muscles in your body for sure, and causes me, at least, to not be as tense. I used to take painkillers everyday, to the point where they were no longer effective and I was taking extremely high does just to feel a little bit of relief but I’ve completely stopped needing them. I mean, the pain isnt 100% gone of course but its almost non-existant, I can function regularly and go about my day with out having to deal with an upset/sore stomach.
Also I found that a change in my diet (cutting out fried/greasy) did wonders for my IBS, as well as cutting out all forms of stress I had in my life. Obviously IBS is something I’ll have to live with the rest of my life but marijuana really has made a huge difference and I will always recommend it to people who have any chronic pain and even people with sleeping/eating disorders.
:] Yeah I do! I feel almost immediate relief for my stomach/muscle pain. Getting a prescription depends on the state you live in. Do you live in a medical marijuana state?And What symptoms do you feel with your IBS?
p.s. im sorry you have it, it sucks!!! :(
