My dad suffers from anxiety.
- He is the type of person who is not sure when he is stressed though.
When his anxiety got really bad, he was having trouble driving to work. Then my family got involved. My mother immediately took him to the doctor. The whole experience was horrible. He had to wait over an hour to see a doctor that refused to give him pills without a prostate exam. Then the pills had some pretty negative side effects. My dad wasn’t really good about getting his pills either. He would frequently forget to refill the prescription, pick it up or call it in. More often than not my father was off his medication. Every year when the prescription was up, he would dread going to the doctor. It wasn’t working at all for him. So I started doing some research. I found that medical cannabis was a better solution for him. That doctor’s visit took maybe five minutes and required only talking. Then my father got a medical cannabis card in the mail after paying a small fee. He has a prescription for a certain amount of cannabis oil each month. He can grab it from the cannabis dispensary anytime he wants or have it delivered on a monthly basis home. He can vape the cannabis oil when he is at work since he works outside. My dad is always on his cannabis now and has shown great improvement. Refilling his prescription isn’t a huge hassle either. My father doesn’t dread that visit.
