In the 90’s I was sentenced to 6 months in prison for involvement in the supply of cannabis. I came out of prison and sometime in next few years afterwards, totally stopped using cannabis, and became the annoying ex-smoker who tries to get others to stop.
Then, 4 years ago I suffered a brain injury, which resulted in a shunt being fitted, as well as many other issues to deal with such as difficulty balancing, memory problems, loss of appetite etc. I could go on, but I’d rather not. I tried my best to cope with these symptoms, and apart from offering to measure my balance, the NHS offered no help.
I don’t know exactly know when, but someone suggested I have another smoke of cannabis. It was my first in at least 10 years. I tried, and noticed it helped with balance, and many of my other symptoms.
So, I have been using as much as I can, as often as I can. This is sadly very expensive, and means I now have to be involved in a supply chain that I am in no way fit for anymore. This, alongside the constant pressure of potential arrest, which, due to previous convictions will very likely mean prison, is almost impossible to bear. However, I still use as much as I can. WHY???
I am off to the Doctors tomorrow with list of medicine I WILL be asking for, and will need GOOD explanation IF I don’t get it.
