Hello EVERYONE!!!My name is Tonya Sanders and I am 37 and I have been sick on and off since middle school with different problems,but about 10 yrs ago I was diagnosed with advanced lupus, fibromyalgia, and a million other things..Let’s just say we’ve been through ALOT in these past 10 years. Here are just some of health things I went through. Stroke,heart and liver problems ,bacterial meningitis 2 times, coma,pain pumps,abscess,systemic fungal infections,sepsis,peg tubes,ports, PICC lines, blood transfusions, multiple surgeries,100s of infections in and out of hospital every month.Then one day I had an appointment with pain management and they told me they were going to cut my pain medication back because of opioid crisis going on!!!! I looked at them like they were crazy!! Im a Nurse and have never ever abused or taken more of anything than I should!!! So then I said I have been laying there dyeing on my couch for 10 years unable to take care of myself,my 2 girls and husband,and now this .Then I asked them what am I supposed to do .They stated there was nothing else they could do,but to lower all medication dosages to start the weening off process. I was so hurt,confused,pissed ,and now they’ve given up on me to .So when I got to the car I tore up all prescriptions.. What in the hell was I supposed to do I mean I was taking at least 20 pills just in the morning alone plus changing a Fentanyl patch every 3 days and dilaudid every 4 hrs around the clock, muscle relaxers,injections at home,IV antibiotics24/7 at home ,antipsychotics ,plus I took oral chemo for a year and IV chemo for 6 months. So the next day I started withdrawing BAD. Started off with nausea,then came horrific pain ,anxiety,vomiting,suicidal,skin crawling,unable to wear clothes,yawning,no sleep,flopping around like a fish out of water,climbing the walls basically..So I tried to tuff it out for 3 more days,my husband and I we couldn’t do it anymore.We had been researching medical marijuana prior to them wanting to decrease medication but I had never tried it because I was so scared. So I called a friend and had them bring over some medical cannabis by the time I walked back to my porch from trying it everything I had been experiencing for the past 10yrs and last 4 days was GONE!!!!!! I felt like I did 15 years ago with tears running down my face I said to them I feel like I could run!!! Ever since that day my whole life has changed I can eat on my own,nausea is gone, pain is almost gone, I can walk and not crawl,anxiety and depression gone I can sleep and the list goes on and on!! No hospital stays either!!!!Sure I have bad days but everyone does!!This has been my MIRACLE, my kids have there mom back ,my youngest has never got to know the old me and now she can!!!! I can be a wife to my AMAZING husband, and make amazing memories with my family and friends!!Plus I’m down to just 2 medicines for my lupus and that is it!!!! Also my rheumatologist just told me that my lupus is in REMISSION!!!!! I know for a fact that this plant saved my life and it is my mission now in life to help educate and spread awareness about this miracle plant!!!!!!Please let Medical Marijuana be a patients first choice instead of last💜Thank you for taking time to read ,and hopefully in telling my story it can SAVE others before it’s to late... This was before cannabis!!!
THIS IS AFTER!!!!!💜💚
