I was a bad student. I didn't really learn how to read until I was 8 and was defensive that I was stupid. I was hyper, had crazy add and didn't act right It continued pretty much until high school I was drinking and did not give a fuck.
When I first cupple of times tried weed I didn't get high. I didn't know how to smoke it. One day I was smoking in a group and one of the guys noticed I was a noob and taught me the propper way. He was very nice about it. When I got high my brain felt like it was slowing down but not in a feeling dumb type of way but more like a relief. Even when I got paranoid it felt good too because it was in a get your shit together type of way. I was on my way to not even graduate HS. It felt mad embarrassing.
When I was finally getting my shit together I found a teacher who found out that I was dyslexic. It made sense and she told me alot of people have it and still were successful. I was getting high consistently because it slowed down the world for me. I graduated HS on time with my peers even tho it was a bit of a struggle. I even saw a girl on youtube who was abusing herself until she started using weed medically. Its crazy that a drug so helpful to people that people still demonize.
