Marijuana x Bipolar DOES (not) MIX!

I am feeling so SHITTY right now, and it’s not because of Bipolar…

MARIJUANA IS A HORRIBLE DRUG! Well, not really, but when you use it to put your mind in check for so long, and go without it..

It is a shit.

I’m at the point where I don’t know where my Marijuana begins, and my Bipolar life ends. It has been fused together for so long, but I have made a promise to my FUTURE self, that I will stop smoking, get help, exercise, and start to do this the right way.

How many people use marijuana for their mental illness? How many people use the drug, abuse the drug, and then TRY to get off of it just to find themselves feeling horrible in the end? I must not be the only one..

My husband last night, actually got mad at me again about MONEY. Apparently, I use too much money for weed and not enough on other things. THIS IS TRUE, yes, but this thing I’m using is helping me continue to be that girl you once knew, and not Mrs. Hyde – the monster.

I’m feeling so drained, so pulled in different directions, so lame, so ugh, so much.

  1. I used it in the past, it was always 5-50, it would either make me feel better or it would make things 100X worse. It’s been a year since I’ve smoked and I’m glad I quit. I think about it sometimes but it never helped me enough to really miss it. The drinking was a different story, it was sooooooooooo hard for me to quit drinking and self medicating with alcohol.

  2. “The anti-depressant and intoxicating effects of cannabis are due to its chemical similarity to natural substances in the brain known as “endo-cannabinoids,” which are released under conditions of high stress or pain, explained Dr. Gobbi. They interact with the brain through structures called cannabinoid CB1 receptors. This study demonstrates for the first time that these receptors have a direct effect on the cells producing serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter that regulates the mood.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=F_xMtopBkY8

  3. “Results from our analysis suggest that subjects with bipolar disorder and history of (cannabis use) demonstrate significantly better neurocognitive performance, particularly on measures of attention, processing speed, and working memory.

    These findings are consistent with a previous study that demonstrated that bipolar subjects with history of cannabis use had superior verbal fluency performance as compared to bipolar patients without a history of cannabis use. Similar results have also been found in schizophrenia in several studies.” http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/249006.php

  4. A lot of people think Marijuana is good for depression… I’ve tried it it makes me more depressed. My boyfriends was hooked on marijuana and the amount of money he spent on it was ridiculous, he has ADHD so it was kind of a self medication, of course it didn’t help, but he went to therapy for it and he hasn’t smoked for a while now. On thing you can do is that when you get urges you replace the urge by something healthier like writing exercising, even having sex it might work. Hugs

  5. Are you looking for a solution, or just looking to complain? If you just want to complain that is fine and can be very fun, but if you are looking for a solution, I have one. Have you ever heard of Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health? I am not trying to plug anything, but this book has helped me tremendously as far as my mental health, and I know a friend who had very similar problems to you got her shit handled by using Dianetics. The psych industry tries to cover it up because it advocates not using psych drugs, but that is just more proof that it works. And thank you for liking my post.

    • I was here complaining and looking for help – and you have helped! Thanks!

      I will be definitely looking into this book. I feel right now, the more help and awareness I get, the better I can understand why and what!

      Thanks again 🙂

Rant on, my friends!
