It’s particularly sort of bizarre to be taking care of my Dad the way she must have taken care of me when I first got to planet earth, then i couldn’t understand how to take care of myself so she did it for me, but due to dementia, my Dad is now in that same boat a lot of the time, then thanks to medical marijuana being available in our state, she is at least more comfortable when the confusion sets in, and she is now with us as she enters the final stages of her life… For sure, she’s had a superb run however it’s so taxing to witness the bad effects of dementia.
I don’t like it for her and the fear in her eyes was something that has been so difficult for me to deal with, after learning more about the medical marijuana benefits for someone in my mom’s situation, I decided that it might be worth a try, then with her doctor’s blessing, I started the process of working through the medical marijuana regulations so I could get some cannabis products. I knew that smoking cannabis flower products was out of the question. That’s just not something my Dad could do. She hated smoking her whole life so I’m so blissful that I was able to get medical cannabis edibles. They come in the form of cannabis gummies. About half of one of those cannabis gummies is about all she needs to help her feel safe and comfortable. Within 20 minutes, the fear is gone from her eyes as there seems to be some sort of subconscious acceptance or something. All I enjoy is that my Dad feels a bit more comfortable as she comes to the end of her life. I can’t tell you how grateful I am that my pal and I have access to a legal weed store for her comfort.
