Paula Gallagi-Langlois’ Story
I have had Multiple Sclerosis for close to 30 years. Prior to medical marijuana, I could not find anything at all to alleviate my pain. Some of my symptoms are tremors, spasticity, bladder issues, can’t walk, (I am in a wheelchair) and I am losing my voice to dysphasia. My doctors wanted to put me on a morphine drip, or surgically implant a baclofen pump. I refused because each pain killer they poured into me just made me loopy and I couldn’t function. I am a teacher and I needed to maintain some kind of daily brain normalcy.
From the first time I sat down with Dave (Pharmacist) and we discussed the differences and the types of strains, and how to use a vape, my life was changed. I now use flowers, vapes, and sublinguals. This was all new to me, however, I can roll my own now, and I do inhale! It doesn’t take away my pain, but it takes that edge off that I need with still allowing me my faculties. I also use the infused powder and make my own brownies and cookies!
Without medical marijuana, I would be doped up on pain killers and would be sleeping all day. All the staff at the Healing Corner is always so loving and caring and they make sure all of my questions are answered. Thank you for giving me some of my life back.
