[This post is part of an ongoing blog series
to get to know each other better. Have you read and participated in the other “More About You Monday
For the past few years, we have been under pretty much constant stress: adoption, Tay Sachs diagnosis, moving, high risk pregnancy, bed rest, death, moving again, etc.
I didn’t realize how stressed I really was until after Carmen passed away. It took me 6 months to start feeling “normal” again.
Now, I find myself feeling stressed again.
I went to the dentist this morning and he suggested a night guard to stop me from grinding/clenching my teeth during my sleep. He then asked, “Are you under a lot of stress right now?”
Oh, ha, ha, yes. Even though we are excited to move, I still feel my stress level rising.
While Dave is the calm in our family, I am the worry-wart. I don’t like being a worrier because I KNOW that God is in control and He has a plan. And about 99% of the time, all my worries come to absolutely nothing!
I am always on the lookout for new ways to make managing the stresses of everyday life that little bit easier though.
One of my friends recently told me that using a mango kush cannabis strain has helped her to feel less stressed, so I might have to do some research of my own into the potential health-boosting benefits of marijuana at some point.
Do you have any experience using cannabis? Although there are not any marijuana dispensaries in our area, I know that there are quite a few popular websites where you can buy cheap weed online so if I do decide to give cannabis a try, I will definitely have to place an online order.
It is such a shame that we do not have any cannabis dispensaries in our local area. Honestly, anyone who lives close to a dispensary such as this bend store is incredibly lucky. Who knows, one day, we might get a dispensary in our area, but for now, cannabis users living here will have to stick to ordering cannabis products online.
At this point, I am willing to try anything. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would be suffering from stress, let alone struggling to find a way to cope as well. I’m surprised at just how much this has affected me. But I know I’m not the only one.
That same friend, who told me about the mango kush cannabis strain, has also suggested that I learn how to make hash at home as well, just in case the former isn’t as effective as I want it to be, as I know it won’t affect everyone in the same way. It’s definitely something worth considering at this point, as I just want my mental health to start improving again.
Natural remedies and alternative medicine are not for everyone but it cannot be denied that a large number of people do use them and so if you are contemplating attempting a new approach to managing your mental health, then doing your own research into these types of products is strongly recommended.
So today’s More About You Monday question is: How do you deal with stress?
