Remaining hopeful it will help the spasticity

Inconclusive. My bladder test was inconclusive. They said that the sample contained bacteria in their that couldn’t have come from the urine alone. I was thrilled I got urine in the cup. That was a challenge in itself for someone with multiple sclerosis and bladder issues. I even was able to use the little handy wipe they give you before you give the sample. I was so proud of myself that day. So much for that gold star. Thank goodness…

Another fall to face the truth

Another fall to face the truth

NYS Medical marijuana card

I had to submit my information to the department of health, with the certification and my drivers license. After my application is reviewed, my card will be mailed to me.
