I am a 41-year-old woman living in Santa Barbara, California. Medical cannabis has helped me deal with depression and anxiety from undiagnosed ADHD since I was 16 years old. It helped me focus and cope with the intense emotions of a teenager.
Fibromyalgia is a disorder that causes muscle pain and fatigue. People with fibromyalgia have “tender points” on the body. Tender points are specific places on the neck, shoulders, back, hips, arms, and legs. These points hurt when pressure is put on them. No one knows what causes fibromyalgia. Anyone can get it, but it is most common in middle-aged women.
