Welcome back to Free My Cure. My name is Nicola and I am a Terminal Stage 4 cancer patient. I turned to cannabis 4 years ago and I haven’t looked back since. I have improved my quality of life by 10 percent and I don’t plan on stopping here. Join me on the journey to find a cure for my cancer using cannabis!
Mental Health is a hard subject for some people to understand but affects all of us on a daily basis. With everything that has been going on in the media with the sexual assault today with our politicians and our celebrities, this is a subject I believe we all need to talk about. Today every 98 seconds an American is sexually assaulted, 1 in 6 women have or is going to be a victim of sexual assault, and 1 in 33 men have or are going to be sexually assaulted. These numbers are horrific and don’t include physical abuse, mental abuse, or suicide because of the abuse, so how do we protect ourselves and our loved ones?
As a child victim, I have seen the system first hand, and I understand why victims take their lives. Victims long-term mental health is seriously affected by the abuse and the abuser and with everything in the news can trigger victims. I was sexually abused as a child and I feel I’m a pretty strong women, but I have noticed triggers I thought I was over and that has been really hard for me. Seeing a current picture of the man that hurt me was harder than I thought. This caused triggers for me, I was angry, depressed, scared, and pissed off all at the same time. I was having a really hard time accepting I was ok, he can’t hurt me anymore. Then I remembered that my parents have passed away and they know the truth now.
If your a victim like me, please remember you can get away or you already have, focus on all the good things in life, and mostly remember that person is going to have to face it one day.
I no longer use pharmaceuticals for depression, I found it wasn’t as effective in opening up my brain to fully understand my depression. I use cannabis now, it helps me slow down and think without all of the side effects of pharmaceuticals. Pharmaceuticals have caused my depression to spiral out of control, even to the point of considering suicide, with cannabis the worst side effect is euphoria and I’ll take that side effect over suicidal tendencies any day!
STAY FREE, FLY HIGH, AND AS ALWAYS FUCK CANCER!
