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.

Additional info about this time in patient's life

I was trying to beat heroin, and my friend introduced cannabis to me and I was able to be clean right away with no withdrawals. And I began to be able to make more connections because I wasn't triggered easily.
