Fibromyalgia Patient Eases Pain, Finds Peace
Bunny Hethcox is a 54-year-old mother of two and grandmother of six. A real estate broker for 17 years, Bunny taught her kids drugs were bad.
But Bunny also suffers from fibromyalgia, PTSD, depression and anxiety, and one day while driving with her son, she had a bad panic attack and was unable to find her xanax.
After pulling over, sweating and shaking, her son pulled a joint from his pocket and said “I think you need this more than I do.”
It took her a minute to decide whether to yell at him or try it, but once she did, she discovered that cannabis calmed her considerably.
Hydrocodone, oxycodone, codeine, Demerol and various other drugs had failed to ease the pain of her fibromyalgia, but after using medical cannabis for several months for her anxiety, she found that the pain lifted and her intense PTSD symptoms became tolerable.
That got her doing some research on cannabis and the history of its prohibition.
Last January, she got involved with politics for the first time, doing a lobby day at the Wisconsin state capitol.
After a disappointing visit with her representative, she decided to find help changing the law.
She came across the ASA website only ten minutes before the deadline for scholarship applications to ASA’s National Conference in Washington D.C., but got it in on time. She got the scholarship, and off she went to DC for the first time, worried about flying alone and what she’d find at the conference.
After meeting doctors, scientists, lawyers and leaders of medical research from the Netherlands, Canada and Israel she knew she needed to do what she could to help people get safe and legal access.
She asked how to start an ASA chapter in Wisconsin, and on April 13, Bunny held the first meeting.
“We are now on our way to help Wisconsin become a legal State,” she says. “I have two choices, live in pain and suffer with anxiety and depression by keeping the law or break the law by medicating myself with cannabis to live a normal life. I choose cannabis.”
