Hello, my name is Jennifer Beachtel. I am a 32-year-old married mother of three. Cannabis
has saved my life is more ways the one. At the age of 9, I was diagnosed with mental illness and later more physical and mental illnesses. I have post-traumatic stress disorder,
Borderline Personality Disorder, Body Dysmorphic Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, endometriosis, irritable bowel syndrome, and spinal arthritis.
I was addicted to drugs when I was 16 and I got pregnant, I had a little girl, and when she was a year old my mom took us in. My mom supported me and my daughter, not telling the people around us, so I could get help without judgment and I am forever grateful for that. I cleaned up and I have been clean ever since.
My first marriage was tough, my first husband was mentally and physically abusive to me. When we finally told our families, the result surprised a lot of people, I forgave him and in return he forgave himself, he then was able to get help, today he is no longer that person he is now an amazing father and a very good person to me. I’m in my second marriage. I am a domestic abuse survivor with my first husband. I have seen the dark sides of many people. My first attempt at suicide was when I was 13 years old. I have tried 13 to kill myself so I truly believe I was meant to survive to show people no matter what you go through you can make it.
I am now blessed to have all three of my children with me. Last year before my mom passed away I started to research cannabis, and I found the benefits of cannabis and cancer which led to me to articles on the benefits it can do for depression and anxiety which shocked me. I was always taught differently, that it was a gateway drug and it would lead me to harder drugs and in turn cause a psychotic break because of my illnesses. I have been on all kinds of pharmaceutical medications for my mental illnesses, some worked and some caused horrible side effects. I watched my mom go through chemotherapy. It really did a lot of damage to her body and honestly I had a lot of resentment against the ER doctors due to the fact they waited a year to tell my mother’s family doctor she had cancer, as a side note we did sue and won, as our family Doctor was able to recover the documentation from the hospital after my mother became severely sick. She passed away 6 months after she was diagnosed, I feel chemotherapy was the wrong option for her doctor started talking to us about cannabis oil a month before she passed away. I feel if her doctor would have recommended cannabis oil, in the beginning, my mom would still be here today. My brothers and I were with my mom when she passed away, we held her hand as she passed away and that was the worst day of my life. I believe we wouldn’t have lost our mom at 52 if cannabis was a staple in today’s medical industry.
A couple months before she passed she was on the cannabis pill, I don’t know the specifics of what cannabis pills she was taking all I know is it was mailed to her once a week, they were small and easy for her to swallow, the oil was inside the capsule. When she started the cannabis oil pills we saw life and light come back to her but the cancer and chemotherapy had already taken its toll on her. It was one of the hardest things I’ve been through. After 13 years of being on so many of the same medicines, they took a huge toll on my body and now I was watching those same medications kill my own mom. I am extremely thankful that my brother was able to stay home with my mom the last several months because I was really struggling with my own demons.
It got to the point where I could not walk. The medicines I was on had harsh side effects to my nervous systems which caused long-term damage which causes me to occasionally lose all feeling on my left side to where I cannot walk. So with my mental illnesses and the shock of my mom getting sick and passing, I decided I needed a change. I started with cannabis and I saw a huge difference. I woke up wanting to live. I woke up being able to function. The pains in my body eased. I was able to start trauma therapy. It did more than just help my body it opened my eyes to be able to see and feel my emotions.
I wasn’t truly able to feel before. With cannabis, I was able to feel my emotions again for the first time in a very long time before that my first survival instinct from PTSD was to shut off all emotions, which is extremely dangerous in the long run. I don’t have the nasty side effects of those nasty medications anymore I just have relief.
To most people, I am a lost cause but one person showed me the education on cannabis and truly made a difference. Nicola Dickens first told me about Cannabis. I told my mom about the uses of cannabis but I didn’t know a lot in the beginning. My Mom and I started researching cannabis, we listened to Nicola and her story it, and it gave me hope. Hope is all my mom and I needed, in a world full of darkness Nicola was the light I needed. To me, cannabis is more than a medicine it allows you to be in the moment which most of us are not. I was taught in Dialectical behavior therapy the first thing is to be mindful and be in the moment to stay balanced. Cannabis helped me stay in the moment which is extremely important with PTSD. PTSD can be a little monster sitting on your shoulder telling you, you aren’t good enough, or strong enough, or pretty enough but staying in the moment keeps that little monster at bay for me.
Today I am able to start selling makeup for a company called Younique and now I understand though I see myself a certain way the world sees me differently and now I am able to focus on the difference. It is truly life changing for a mental illness patient like me who thought I was only a statistic, or a number at a Dr. Office, or just another face on social media, I am a beautiful, smart, and talented women. I believe in cannabis because it’s made the difference between being a healthy happy adult or just another death by suicide.
