I am a confirmed Bi-Polar with a family of 3. I have been bi-polar all my life and it has prevented me from ever holding a job for more than a year, well at least to this point. What I am curious about is if anyone has had any success with marijuana treatment for this. I have been a casual user the vast majority of my life (I have really worthwhile parents if you dig it). I am not a drug addict and I am not a \"pot head\". Recently I had to leave the only job I could get, but it wasn\'t due to the bi-polar. I was a delivery driver and got mugged. I just couldn\'t go back. Since then I have been broke and in a steady downward emotional spiral. I refuse to buy an illegal substance with what little money I have. That would make me a bad person...I have babies that want to eat. Since I have not had my \"treatment\" my emotions have begun to bounce and I have lived with a constant golfball in my throat. I guess you could say that I also have a serious issue with meds. I simply refuse to take chemical drugs and pills are forever banned from my life. Chemicals and pills have a tendancy to lead to other things in my family. I live in a state that somewhat has a medical marijuana tolerance but I am terrified of asking a doctor for this and looking like a criminal instead of just being a closet one. So has anyone had any success with this treatment?
