Intermittent disruption disorder (IDD)
Overall health, well-being and quality of life before medical cannabis
I always worried about being in public, because I was scared my IDD would be triggered and I would hurt someone leading to isolating myself. If I was outside I wouldn’t interact with anyone out of fear. I had to end relationships so I wouldn’t hurt her.
