Healing Rheumatoid Arthritis With Cannabis

Healing Rheumatoid Arthritis With Cannabis

I really shouldn’t read articles about Rheumatoid Arthritis anymore and I absolutely should NOT read any comments that might be posted. Even when my RA was severe, I could only handle so much time on forums because it was too depressing. Rheumatoid Arthritis sucks. When it took over and became severe, which it remained for […]

Life As A Preexisting Condition

When Life Becomes A Preexisting Condition

In the new guy’s version of life in this country, preexisting conditions should be allowed only for those who can pay for them. And one foolish congressman even went so far as to suggest that the sickest among us should be paying more than people who have remained healthy as if chronic illness or cancer, for example, […]

Insurance Coverage For Medical Cannabis

I read an article in the National Memo describing how judges are beginning to issue orders regarding insurance coverage for prescription medical cannabis. It’s interesting that the rest of the world moves on while the Federal Government digs its head further into the sand on this issue. The rollout of cannabis legalization in states like Oregon […]

Healing With Cannabis Is Worth The Risk

Healing With Cannabis Is Worth The Risk

It felt as if my body wasn’t my own. I had retained so much fluid that it felt as if I was sloshing about in boiling hot water. My thirteen-year nightmare with rheumatoid arthritis was surreal. It exploded into my life preventing any further training in Kenpo. Although my husband and I had closed our […]

Healing Versus My Constitutional Rights

Evidently my Second Amendment right to purchase a gun has been sacrificed for my healing. In the eyes of the federal government, a cannabis user, patient or otherwise, is prohibited from purchasing a gun. Oh I can have a gun, I just can’t go and buy one. All I wanted to do was survive my illness. […]

A Little Honesty Would Have Been Nice

Apparently the federal government is not yet ready to remove cannabis from the Federal Drug Register. NORML is reporting that the Feds aren’t going to reschedule cannabis after all. Never mind that a profit motive put it there, because it was never about truth. I guess they’re going to allow universities to “study” it now. […]

My Cannabis is Medicine, Not An Income Source

So my package arrived via Fedex yesterday and instead of the driver simply handing it to me, he asked about buying some of my crop. I had no clue what he was talking about. Jerry and I were finishing up the dome greenhouse we put in and I thought maybe he had assumed something. But no. He […]

Chronic Illness is Unacceptable

The world has lost some cool people in the last few days. First it was David Bowie, then Alan Rickman, Mic Gillette from Tower of Power, and now Glen Frey. Shocking, all of them. But Glen Frey’s death hits close to home for me. I suffered from rheumatoid arthritis for around fifteen years, thirteen of […]

I Published My First Book

It’s up on Amazon in Kindle format..and I thank everyone in advance for checking it out! UPDATE: I had to reload the book in a different format so that the pictures would appear..it’s updating now on Amazon, so it should be fixed soon. I think this part is more stressful than actually writing the book.. […]

Hindering Patients: What’s With The OMMP?

Apparently there’s another nightmare brewing for OMMP patients. The Oregon Health Authority has been given additional oversight and now wants in our homes to look around. I’m not sure when our right to privacy flew out the window, but apparently that’s what they want to do. Do cannabis patients NOT have HIPAA rights? All the increased fees […]
