What sparked your interest in medical cannabis?
I suffer from a few conditions that have left me bedridden and housebound for the past 15-plus years. I have an acoustic neuroma, a benign brain tumor. In 1996, during a surgery to remove the tumor, I started to hemorrhage and they had to stop procedure. I slipped into a coma, and several days later when I came to, I was deaf in my left ear and had muscle weakness on the left side of my body. I required a walker and spoke like a stroke victim. I still have about 60 percent of the tumor remaining and a lot of nerve damage pain. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 15 months after brain surgery, and a migraine specialist diagnosed me with hemi cranium continua.
