Mental Health Awareness
Today is 🌎 World Mental Health Day and I couldn’t go without posting about it because this is so Important to me. . My name is Jasyra and I struggle with mental illness. Anxiety and depression are apart of my life but I don’t let it stop me nor define who I am. . I have had really down moments this year where I just didn’t know what to do with myself. If I didn’t think about ending my life I would be lying. Mental demons are REAL. I was completely lost and felt alone even with family and friends by my side. I didn’t know where to run to but I decided I wanted to completely give up pharmaceuticals that made me feel worse. I then researched medical marijuana. I was so against marijuana especially as a nurse but honestly it’s just the stigma this world 🌎 puts on this natural plant that can actually heal so many people. . I started my treatment March of this year and never looked back. I only use the oil and capsules because this girl doesn’t know how to roll a joint nor do I have the desire to 😂 After 7 months of being a medical marijuana patient I can tell you my anxiety has decreased tremendously and I’m actually getting a full 8 hours of sleep. I don’t even use as much as I needed when I first started. Just a few capsules at night for sleep and I’m good to go. I’m so passionate now that this weekend I’ll be getting my cannabis nurse certification so I’ll be able to help those suffering get there cards and help with dosing which is what i struggled with when i first started. . Anyway; taking care of your mental health is extremely important. I’m not here to tell everyone to smoke weed i am just here to remind you to take care of yourself. I do a lot to take care of my mental health. If I don’t meditate, journal, listen to personal development and take care of my body with eating right and exercising I would be a complete mess. Take care of the only body you have and seek help if you are struggling and have negative thoughts that are hindering you from your happiness.
