‘Another Unreal Turn in the Parkinson’s Road’
At one time I was as’ Red’ as any Republican could be. While I still salute and believe in a “modified” version of Adam Smith’s theories on economics, known as “the Invisible hand”; for all of my previous life I would say that I had no real foundation to allow me an understandable basis of what the meaning of truly needing help due to lack of abilities meant.
This will be discussed in more detail with my disclosure over the next month. I salute the states of Texas, Louisiana, Oregon, Colorado, California, Washington and the one or two others I may be missing off the top of my head (for seeing beyond the stereotype twice) and recognizing that we have a real humane, healthy resource too relieve suffering and even enhance quality of life for millions. While the estimate of millions is just based off my current hypothesis (educated guess), I will tell you personally, after hitting a dead end and conventional medications providing no relief, it was referenced that maybe…I was a prime candidate for medicinal. After much nerve racking preparation, as I am a verified drug tester for my company, and taken over 100’s of on-site drug tests personally and even seven to ten in the last year, I was a follower of no tolerance (without prescription).
I cautiously walked into the medicinal world. After only four days of medicinal advisers, I found my “niche” and it certainly wasn’t a long glass tube. Still in pain, I got up and administered the medicinal that is traditionally used for ‘people at the end of their lives and cancer patients’. Two and a half hours later, I felt relief I had only ever dreamed of having. No red eyes, no funny hats…Just SHOCK I had been so far removed from a world that was so close.
Much broader details to come, I only applaud the states seeing beyond for humanely relieving suffering. I was never a drug user or abuser. I am here to say that medicinal gave me a new life of functionality.
Unfortunately, my access is restricted due to environmental disruptions in my previously successful Parkinson’s treatment and protocol. I look forward to the day I can get back to my routine.
Parkinson patients experience real pain.
