Depression & Marijuana
At a young age i was diagnosed with Severe Depressive Disorder, Borderline Bipolar, and Severe Anxiety.
At a young age, about 10years old i found myself very sad, angry, and i would have constant thoughts about death. I never knew why i was like this, and even when i tried to escape these thoughts i was never able too.
Also, everytime i would be around a group of mre than 4 or 5 people i would be come very nervous, fidgety, i would loose my breath, break out in a sweat, and feel like i was about to pass out.
I was like this everyday. Every single day.
Oneday, a few years later i was finally taken to a doctor for these reasons i told my mom about.
I was prescribed a few medications, wich i never felt as if they worked.
Some of them made me feel nothing, some of them made me gain weight, some of them made me loose weight, some of them would make me fall asleep 15minutes after i took them.
I was on and off meds for years.
Then i found marijuana.
Ever since i have found marijuana i havnt had anyof these problems.
It(marijuana) has truthfully helped me, and i will be eternily gratefull for it.
I am a happy healthy person now.
I can get up in the morning and know that i do not have to feel like i used to.
I can go into a public place with 20,000 people in it, and feel fine.
All because of Cannabis.
I can smoke a bowl or two, and be okay for that whole day, and most of the time the next day.
As long as cannabis is in my system...i am okay.
marijuana, Cannabis, Weed, Pot, Reefer, Herb, Ganja..ETC
This plant truley is a great gift.
I have read they are now doing studies on Cannibis treating depression. I am glad you fond a non pharmicitcal way to treat you illness. Thos drug give nasty effects.
Im glad to hear that.
Agreed. I've been on Zoloft and Xanax for depression and anxiety. I had depression, but never a suicidal thought until I started the Zoloft. The Zoloft had some other shitty side effects too.

Here is a list of some medications I've taken over the years,
The list goes on, the above listed are ones off the top of my head.
I've actually had to take Stimulants to counteract some of the medications I was taking, medications that do make you gain weight whether you like it or not, such as Depakote, Prozac, Paxil and Wellbutrin.
I've taking Ritalin and Amphetamine for weight loss. I didn't care for them, Amphetamine and Ritalin are to much like speed.
Although some of the medications I listed did help me through my life, Non has done what marijuana does for me now, marijuana does the trick and no major side effects except the occasional Brain Fart or Munchies.
I was taking a handful of medications at a time, some for Depression, Anxiety, and Constipation. (some medications do constipate you)
Now I'm only taking one Seroquel at night for Insomnia and marijuana for Depression/Anxiety! Now that's a hole lot better than all of the pills I've listed,
Think About it For A Minute!
If you had to, what would you rather take a Pill Box full of pills each day and have to remember witch ones you need to take at certain parts of the day/night, or one pill and some marijuana?
So Hell Yah! marijuana Should Be Legal, not only for Medicinal use but for anybody who wants it, marijuana Never Killed Anyone, Now Look At Alcohol!
Yeah i used to suffer from depression/anxiety attacks frequently/anger/insomnia/chronic migrains/ and a list of other ailments that weed has damn near cured for me. And having plants is stress relief on its own, who doesnt find it peaceful to come home after a long day, and just sit with your plants examining their every detail and talking to them as if they were your own flesh and blood ^_^ I use them as a shrink to tell all my problems too. And they actually listen. I swear one nodded one time when i asked it if i should smoke a bowl. They give GOOD advice =]
paxil and effexxor are no longer in my life cuz of this herb
paxil even got me suicidal after a few years of actually not being so... fuck that shit
and effexxor just never did anything
... i still have problems, but i can't remember the last time it was something a nice bowl couldn't fix...
i gotta get to a mm state!
agreed the only depression is not haveing any to smoke
If only the fucking government could realize how this herb can help people.
