Wife's a med card holder.. took her doctor 3 years to sign off on it after trying every other form of medication to get her to be able to eat.
I suffer from anxiety as well, I know how hard it was to talk to her doctors - we even had one specialist tell us out right to just grow our own and if we got caught he'd write a note to the courts and it would be fine.. said he'd done it a few times before...(off the record of course) but wouldn't sign off on her paperwork. I think there's alot of doctors worried about it coming back to haunt them so they don't want to put their name down on it.
I see this is a pretty informed thread... just want to jack it for a second...
Just got her package today and found out the meds aren't covered under OHIP, and ODSP said they don't cover anything MJ related... We are on disability support, and I am her permanant caregiver. I can't go get a part time job on top of everything else in my day so is going to be very hard to afford to get her meds.... I mean we'll find the money, but we'll be giving up almost 1/3 of the total amount for her medication.. is there any programs or subsidies that we can apply for for cancer patient/survivors? PM's are cool too, I just need to know where to start looking.. thanks
