I have been curious about medical cannabis for many years. I’ve read articles and watched videos about it being ‘miracle medicine.’ I’ve heard it has great results for patients with Parkinson’s, epilepsy, cancer, autoimmune diseases, pain management, and the list goes on. A friend introduced me to Dr. Chin and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to finally convince my mom that cannabis could potentially help her.
Caregiver Stories: Diverse Voices
As part of the Modern Aging community, we want to hear from diverse voices that embody what it means to be a caregiver. Each contributor shares their story, what they learned from being a caregiver; what they wished they knew beforehand; what they worry about most; and how they self-care. These are common issues that bind us but how we handle these challenges are often very different depending on our families, cultures, situations, locations. We hope that by sharing their stories, you will find comfort and insight in your caregiving experience as well as possibly learn something new!
