Overall health, well-being and quality of life before medical cannabis

I have degenerative disc disease I wouldn’t even take an aspirin until I had my first back surgery, but after that things changed.
I had a horrible appetite, troubles sleeping and addictive to pills (opioids ex/dilaudid).  It was hell and I was scared, messed up mentally and emotionally. The world was going on and I wasn’t apart of it.
