Okay, lots of pain, right? And the only thing that I've been able to adequately medicate myself with is marijuana. It was decriminalized recently in my state, MN, and it's on review for becoming medicinal - but if Pawlenty has anything to say about it, that won't happen.
What I'm wondering is there ANY kind of an alternative pain killer out there for me that I can use & not become horribly addicted to or have bad side effects from besides pot? Anything that's herbal that's stronger than Valerian (my cramps are comparable to someone punching me in the stomach over & over again until my whole side is raw to the touch - literally. Valerian doesn't do much to touch that)? Because now that my endo, anxiety, and back problems are in full swing - I'm just smoking too much to afford it anymore. It really makes me mad, too, because if I didn't live in pain, I could have pot mostly for fun like I used to and it'd be a want of mine rather than a necessity. I'm going through about an 8th every two days lately. Not fun.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the medical bill passes sooner rather than later, but I thought I'd take a shot in the dark by posting here in the meantime. I know my options are limited, but if anyone would know a good alternative for me, you guys would. I just want something that relaxes me & gets rid of the pain - I'm not after some huge psychedelic experience, fyi.
Even if you don't have a suggestion, support is always good/wanted. As are ways to make my pot stretch more - I've tried almost everything short of doing a thc oil extraction, which may just be what I have in store for my next bag.
If you made it this far, thanks for reading.
