My fella is in the hospital. For 5 years or better, he has really been a roller coaster of volatile, impulsive, destructive and sometimes dangerous behavior.
He has become very destructive in the home, in a near constant state if irritability, compulsion, rage. His moments of sweetness are fewer and of shorter duration.
His episodes involve horrid, vile verbal abuse, intense volume, racing changes if topic, and body movement that puts him at risk. He has lost all empathy. Communication, a conversation is no longer a thing.
Cannabis has been such a gift for him. 30 seconds flat after a puff on his vaporizer, and he is smiling, ready for a walk or an outing at the gym.
He has MS, and has had some truly terrible brain injuries that could have killed him. His depression is major, he has PTSD.
I recently had to leave the home with my dog to live in the car for a spell. This man who at one time never had a harsh word for me, had his fist cocked and ready for my face. His face was not his face. His eyes were dead. I was just sitting on the couch, cooling off, with plans for a fruit salad.
He trashed the home and the furniture. While I was gone. He threw many belongings in the trash and gave some to neighbors, including one of his favorite varieties of cannabis.
B has dementia, and I am waiting to hear more. After years of begging for help to find an answer and help for his behavior, we are finally getting it. That’s with specifically requesting evaluation for dementias!
Looking here, most posts I find mentioning dementia are older. I have had a few days with no sleep, and I ask for your help in suggestions of varieties, especially Sativa/Sativa dominant varieties that are staples for use with your loved ones.
I’m not so much concerned with pain relief, as ‘go fast’, and the mental effects. He used to have a big, big love for acid, and a yen for Plastodil (?), if any of you can relate or know what that second drug is. If I can contribute to any happiness …
I was thinking hard on Fleur du Mal’s goods. A rippy Sativa puts a smile on him, gets him active, talking more, and annoying me in much better ways.
I would be grateful for your non cannabis suggestions, as well. I am in the weeds as this time of storm and stress has been years, and the intensity of most recent months has me worn to a nub. I am literally sick and tired, relieved he is gone, but I want to grow more plants, as soon as the hot weather breaks.
