    Hello from Sacto

    Long time lurker and figured it was time to start trying to contribute back...I posted another forum on this site a very similar post, so for those that read that, I apologize in advance.

    Anybody out there using mmj for helping cope with PTSD?

    There are a lot of vets suffering unnecessarily and I noticed that this topic has not been started. I wanted to bring it up because I am a vet suffering and have only found one medicine that allows me to function when my PTSD starts to get out of control...

    Unfortunately for me, PTSD is not something a normal doctor will put in my medical files even though I have many of the major symptoms. The only thing the normal doctor will do is try to get me to have psych sessions and prescribe to me what I think are medicinally lobotomizing drugs that I cannot stand to even think about trying.

    Needless to say, I found a medicine that works for me. No more nightmares, no more waking up in fits of rage, no more lack of energy during the day because I get a good night's rest, and the moodiness is under control. All of that from a couple tokes before bed time. I just wish I could find a Sac area Doctor that is compassionate enough to help me get my medicine legally without needing info I cannot get from Kaiser.

    Sorry for rambling.

    Thumbs up Re: Hello from Sacto

    Good Evening,

    I am glad to hear you have discovered the 1 of many benefits of mmj.

    I can vouch for benefit from mmj for PTSD as my wife suffers from this and I am witness to the advantages of mmj treatment over many of the god awful presrcp meds different docs have put her on

    If you hav not found a Dr thru a link on this site try California NORML | Dedicated to reforming California's marijuana laws!

    Good Luck and Thank you for your sacrafice to our once great and will be again U.S. of A.

    Check this thread http://www.420magazine.com/forums/me...pensaries.html

    There's about 20 some dispensary/collectives listed. Many of these will be affiliated with specialist doctors that should be able to help you.

    Re: Hello from Sacto

    It's been a long journey since 2009 when I first introduced myself. Now I am back and thought I might re-introduce myself.

    I now am in Olympia, Wa and loving the change of scenery.

    I went to the VA here and got some great help. I am involved in weekly groups and have a PTSD Psychiatrist I work with one on one.

    I decided to grow my own because the good strains I need for PTSD symptoms are not always around. I also want to be able to give away what I don't need to other Vets.

    I have lurked long enough. I started a grow journal and hope to contribute what I can to the community.
