I am a 40 something healthcare executive and I suffer from bi-polar disorder. Throughout my teens I struggled with depression and suicidal ideation until a counselor suggested I try something with fewer side effects than the meds I had been taking. I started using pot in my early 20's and although I still suffer bouts of depression and the usual effects of being bi polar, pot use litterally has saved my life. I no longer have the overwhelming urge to commit suicide, and have had a much happier life since.
