that is an incredible journey, welcome to Percysgrowroom. Glad to hear things are working out
Glad you're here with us Padre! This plant never ceases to amaze me. Like dogs, humans are lucky to have made friends with ganja lol
I feel ya brother. Had a bad accident that damaged my spine and hips. Had surgery 12 years and was on heavy amounts of opiates for 8 years. They just weren't destroying me physically but mentally as well. This is going to make my 5th year of being opiate free. Due to the damage my spine received, it's caused a lot of nerve damage throughout my entire body. The last 6 years my peripheral neuropathy in my feet, legs, arms and hands has gotten terrible. I have a new pinched nerve that causes a bad charlehorse in my gut, literally puts you on the floor.
And it's a great thing mother nature and her wonder mj plant has given me. I'm extremely grateful I can medically and legally medicate myself now. Instead of all that garbage big pharma pushes. Best wishes in your grows and healing. Though biggest word of advice I can give anyone suffering from physical and/or mental disabilities. Is you constantly have to work your mind and your soul. It is a never ending journey.

Thats awesome man. Well done mate, i'm glad Cannabis is able to help you! It really is an amazing plant. Sounds like you have been through a lot man. Stay strong brother
I understand how you feel... My story is a little different, been battling depression for over 15 years, but I related to your experience with the conventional big pharma crap. First I tried to drink my problems away for years, which of course made everything worse. Then I was guided to an even darker path and was given nearly every anticonvulsant, antidepressant, tranquilizer, etc available - over 10 types of drugs and several combinations and dosages among them, for sure over 30. In some cases, I felt better for a couple months, then everything collapsed again. After many years of frustration, increasing depression waves and suicidal thoughts, I realized that I needed to take the matter into my own hands and looked for alternatives, thus meeting the sacred weed, plus diet change and exercise. I know my problems are still out there, but at least now I have the quality of life I need to face them and live a good life with my family.
Here it's still illegal to grow and buy, but we can't wait for such stupid laws to change, life won't wait. I'm glad you too found an alternative that improved your life, mate!
Thanks for sharing all this with us everyone. Its good to read your stories, and see what you have battled through. A thread like this can show other there is a bright dawn after every dark day
Neuropathy is just a bonus they don't tell us about at first. Brother I am grateful that you have been opiate free for 5 years and with God's help this all natural herb will help me get their and many of our fellow sufferers as well until the day comes where people who suffer with pain, neuropathy and will not have to add opiates to that list as well. Blessing's bud . Peace, Good and good toking
Thank you. I know from personal experience and that struggle of addiction. It is hard enough to to be honest enough with yourself that you are an addict it is admirable to be strong enough to share the journey. An all natural herb for the benefit of us all is not even truly legal in any state with legalized marijuana because of Pharma and Big Government. We need to share our stories and fight. "LIVE FREE OR DIE". Even my fellow Christians know "What is from the government is for the government what is from God is for God's glory "Christ Jesus.
Been slammed at work and hadn’t had a chance to check the board lately, first thing I click into was your thread. Man you absolutely made my day. Your struggle sounded tough but your message of finding a way out is inspirational. It gave me hope. It had to be tough to start this thread but you’ve touched lots by taking that step. Thanks for sharing mate.
By the grace of god the opiates never got their hooks into me but I’ve been battling pain for more years than I remember. The results of a life lived at many physical limits. My daughter recently relocated to an area where Cannabis is legal and I was able to go and actually learn that this plant can do everything the pharmacist was trying to do, if I use it right. I’m off the pills now for a year and a half with better and more consistent relief than before. I’m so glad you found Percy’s and that I am also glad to be a part of this community as well. We all have a reason for being here ?
Random acts of kindness make the world a better place
Brother thank God you avoided it. Destroy your kidneys, liver, had a heart attack and became addicted. But, your right so much power in a natural herb and Big Government and Pharma want to keep us bank rolling their lives by keeping us from it. Glad it helped. I hope more of us share to help each other and those in the future.
Yes Thank you for sharing, Ive lost a few good friends to pain pill addiction, Luckily I only broke and started taking pills with in the last 2 years Chronic Pain, Anxiety and Insomnia most likely the results of being an (ex) alcoholic and ex military, but Missouri went legal medical Marijuana and I was able to get rid of them and I honestly feel so much better and cope with being in public places somewhat better (still looking for a good anti anxiety strain)
Sativa to change the things I can, Indica to accept the things I can’t.
