Four Years after CCSVI Treatment

It was four years ago today that I was treated for CCSVI in Katowice, Poland. My left-side weakness continues to get worse (except for those muscles I'm nursing back to some strength through physiotherapy). However, my autonomic functions, my balance and my fatigue continue to stay improved to this day - YAHOO!

Now if I can continue to get my insomnia and hip pain under control, I expect to really start living it up (well, sort of). I'm hoping that the marijuana I ordered today (with high CBD content) will help.

On the weed

I got a marijuana prescription today,  and duly sent off my registration package to CanniMed. In a week or so I should be able to order some from them. They are one of the only two legal sellers that have the variety of strains that are most likely to do what I need to alleviate pain, help me sleep and perhaps even improve my energy levels.  The prescribing doc told me I would probably benefit from two strains,  one high in CBD, one high in THC. I'll let you know how things turn out.
