I have had clinical depression and insomnia since the seventh grade. Since my earlier thirties, I have symptoms of bi-polar disorder and personality disorder. Without access to marijuana, I would not be able to manage my anxiety. I have tried various medication, but the only ones that have worked for me are addictive. I don't want to be an addict but I do need to manage my disorders so that I can hold down my job, have a relationship with my family, and be a productive member of the community. I do take medication as well, along with going to yoga, running, and attending therapy.
