Over the last couple months, I had observed our husband’s mood was increasing.
- He would be in a good mood in the afternoon, however by midafternoon, he would be miserable.
His mood was getting so foul that I was afraid to leave him apartment with the teenagers when I went to work. I was talking to our sibling, who is a doctor at the local trauma center, and he said it sounded to his appreciate he had depression, but he knew our husband had a diagnosis of ADHD when he was a young child, and he had been on the same medication ever since, then lately, that medication was not working well for him, and that is when the depression started. Every one of us went to his family physician and discussed everything that was happening with his attitude and the depression with him. The dentist said he was going to take his medication off him over the next numerous weeks, and in the meantime, he wanted us to work on getting a medical marijuana ID card form. He said that medical marijuana was increasing numerous people’s lives by helping them with their ADHD, depression, and other medical symptoms. They were finding more focus and less manic moods. I am particularly hoping that medical marijuana will help with the ADHD, and stop his temper and bouts of depression. His bouts of depression are ruining our family life. When the dentist talked about medical marijuana, our husband got quiet, despite the fact that I knew he was taking it seriously. He didn’t appreciate how he felt anymore than all of us liked how he acted out.
