My life was very difficult, I have had depression for a long long time. I started drinking around 14 and I drank like all four Motley Crew members, but all into one body.

Additional info about this time in patient's life

I didn't have any fears about trying Cannabis, where I live cannabis has always been widely available and accepted. As for advice, stick with it, don't change it, it works. If you start on a medical cannabis regime, stick with it, it can take awhile the for the effects but it works.
