Now, as most of you that I talk to regularly here know I tore my left rotator roughly 10 months ago, and it has not healed. I have been to two orthopedic specialists, a chiropractor, two physiosists, been through physical therapay, recieved inbjections, been on medication that made me puke ect. About a month ago my insurance denied me from further coverage. I still go to the natural healer/message therapist and use arnica flower gel on my shoulder. Still, there are days where I am in CONSTANT fucking pain, where my left shoulder feels like it's being yanked out of the socket. There is internal bleeding and swelling througout that makes me wince and tear up. Seeing that the school year started last week, I had a ROUGH time teaching because of the grinding pain.
Saturday my father and I went out and came across a billboard for medical marijuana. He suggested I try it to ease my pain. I took the number down, and called the doctor today. I explained to the doctor how much hell I've been through with the corrupt pharma doctors, and that I refuse to be on addictive pain pills. He said I fit the bill, would need to come in and pay $150 for a physician to run tests to see that I'm not BSing. He sounded sincere and understood that I would rather do something natural anbd non-addictive than something like synthetic opiod pain killers. I REALLY need to make it through these next few months before I move overseas where I can get real treatment to repair the shoulder. Right now the pain I go through won't permit that.
Do any of you have an advice for me as to whether or not I should try medical pot? I used to smoke it when I was a teen, but that was a LONG time ago. I don't want to be regarded as a druggie, and I don't know how my body will react to it. All I know is that I have been in pain for the last 10 months that I wouldn't wish on my worst of enemies,

As you are a teacher, I'm sure you're well aware to be careful of what you read on wiki

Smoking it makes me want to not do anything. Start slow, and work into it. There is some really strong stuff available now.
Personally I don't really care for it, or any other drug. Kind of makes the mind cloudy. I'd rather be fully aware and in control of myself, but then again I'm not exactly living in any form of pain.
