Pain and Anxiety of Polycystic Kidney Disease by Anonymous
I am 28 years old and suffer from polycystic kidney disease. I am married with two children who both have been confirmed as having the dreadful disease as well. I smoke cannabis to help cope with the pain as well as the mental anguish of dealing with this disease and all that it encompasses. while not using cannabis doctors had me on Depakote, Risperdal, Adderall, and a steady supply of Lortab. I became a zombie and a pain pill junkie. I have since stopped using those meds and resumed my use of cannabis. I am aware that cannabis is not a cure, but then most medicines are not made to cure as well, only to treat symptoms. This is exactly what cannabis does, only safer with fewer side affects. I serve the LORD God and Jesus Christ and I do battle with the morality of using this plant, but I keep reminding myself that God Himself did indeed create this plant. When it is all said and done, it is just a plant, made by God, that has helped many and killed none.
