Crohn's Disease by Anonymous
I am 29 and have suffered from ovarian cysts most of my adult life.
In 2001 I was also diagnosed with Crohn's disease, and the ONLY thing that has helped me without making me itchy or sick or break out in hives is marijuana. I am allergic to dozens of medications, including both pain medications and antibiotics, so I am limited to what I can take for relief.
I work hard and struggle to take care of my two young children - I am a single mother, and from time to time I require some relief from the pain and suffering I have dealt with for what seems to be an entire lifetime.
