Brenda, my palliative care dr told me the main reason drs can't really address the med mj issue w/patients is because they are licensed both federally and by state. Using med mj is still illegal on the federal level, and they could get in trouble. However, he said if I want to use it, go ahead. Whatever works. I had to find an outside retired nurse practitioner who consults on mmj to help me with dosing, strains, sativa vs. Indica, etc.
I use a 20:1 cbd tincture because I have 20+ brain tumors. It keeps seizures at bay. Edibles help with nausea and deep nerve pain, which opioids don't touch for me.
My word for the year is PEACE.
This could be my last year because I had so much progression in 2017. But I'm at peace with it no matter what. I bought my urn, my niche at the mausoleum, and my "Transition Binder" is up to date with all my accts, my advanced directive, and info re my memorial service, etc.
A huge weight lifted.
All that's left to do is start to give some more of my stuff away to charities. My DH is a pack rat, so he won't do it after I'm gone. I got rid of a lot of clothes last year. This year it will be all my paperbacks and books.
