Colombia, like all countries worldwide, begins to present alarming levels in the number of people suffering from “Chronic Pain”, that is, the pain that is permanent and is maintained over time.
According to statistics 3.5 Colombians are condemned to live with chronic pain, and what happens when this chronic pain increases to unbearable levels? It begins to increase the consumption of opioids and in the end the addiction will lead many to suicide.
What does the person with limited resources do not have to buy an analgesic? Get used to chronic pain, live with chronic pain, he have no choice.
This is a great social drama, for everyone, both for those who have resources and those who do not. In the end the despair on the one hand and the resignation on the other end in more painful situations.
Below I include the words of a friend who suffers from chronic pain and shared his appreciation: “The pain is always marked by the moment, at that time the pain becomes a permanent part of one for a post-traumatic, an accident or a chronic degenerative disease and to that extent the pain has to interact with one, and in the end one ends up learning to interact with the pain. ”
Finally you learn that it is a balance, sometimes the chronic pain dominates you and other times you manage to dominate it.
When chronic pain reaches unbearable levels, it does not let you sleep, it does not let you relate to others, it does not let you work, it isolates you and you end up like a dead person in life. It is the moment when you perceive that something very serious has happened, and that is that the balance has been broken and you have lost control over chronic pain.
When you lose control over chronic pain, you also lose control of your health, your life, the care of your health, you will depend on others, and that is frightening.
The hope of every human being is that this chronic pain disappears some day, and it seems that day is increasingly distant for many people, if they continue with conventional treatments.
And there is a light of hope, when you discover a product as powerful as Medicinal Cannabis, with which you can recover this control of pain, your health and your life, you are reborn, as Dr. David Casarett says.
This is priceless, that is why there exists Cannaciencia!
