I have Ankylosis Spondylitis for a quarter of a century now
With all the pain and aggravated systemic disfunctions that come with AS along the way. I am now 77 years old and a Baptist believing Christian for 32 years. The doctors are at a loss to provide me any more with any kind of pain-alleviating medecines. I have rejected taking Medical Cannabis for as long as I could. But now I am at a point where I would not be able to function at all without some medecine that would help me a bit. After reading dozens of articles on the Medical use of Cannabis, I have come to realize that, yes, my body belongs to God, but yes also, He expects me to use it in such a way as to be useful for His glory. And staying in bed as a vegetable in deep, deep pain is not conducive to that. So, today is the day that I am starting to take Medical Cannabis and I feel at peace with that decision. It is no worse than the Morphine patch which by the way is of no help at all. Or the large amount of five different prescribed medicines which are not helping anymore and also cause me heartburn, nausea, loss of balance, confused mind, loss of memory, etc., etc. The Lord has put this herb on His planet for a purpose: used sensibly, not for a High, but to be able to function as a human being. So there, I took some three hours ago, and it did help. Amen! Praise God for His bounty!
