Your son Peter hasn't showed up to work in days and you expect me not to fire him!
Peter's been cooped up in his room for days and I have no clue how to help. I was thinking you can give him something to help with his anxiety and sadness.
Seems like I know what will help. I will give you a medical card for your son to be able to pick up medical marijuana.
Many people deal with sadness, anxiety, and depression in their own ways. It was different for Peter. Ever since his girlfriend broke up with him he's been in his room. He's always had anxiety so when the depression got to him, so did his anxiety.
I trust you mom. I haven't liked how I've been either. I really hope this helps me out
This isn't as bad as I thought it was
Peter's boss is getting really upset and angry with Peter not coming in to work. He calls Peter's home phone so he can get an answer and his Mom picks up. They argued until Peter's mom hung up the phone. She needed to help her son.
For a mother, there is nothing more important than the health of her child. Peter's emotions were reflecting on his mother so his mom went to the doctor. There he prescribed her medical marijuana. "Currently, there are two synthetic versions of marijuana. Doctors prescribe them for the treatment of severe epilepsy and chemotherapy side effects" (Teens l Health Effects l Marijuana).
Resolution / Call to Action
Peter your state of mind has worsened in the past couple of days. I brought you something that'd help. I know how you may feel but just trust me. I tried it before and its not as bad as you think.
If you ever had anxiety you'd know how bad it can get. Sometimes anxiety gets so bad people don't shower for days. At this point Peter just wanted help. When his mom brought him marijuana he was at first surprised, but maybe it would help. It's always better to try and then find out how you feel after.
Peter goes on youtube and finds out how to roll a blunt. Some of his friends smoke and tell him how it feels but he never felt the need to try it. When he tried it for the first time it felt weird. He didn't feel much at first but when he waited a few mins it hit him. He felt nice, relaxed, calm, and all the other positive feelings. Peter found his cure.
Peter has started showing up to work, working harder than ever. His boss is more than happy with him and Peter feels all better. "Studies have found that patients, who used cannabis to treat a range of medical problems, including anxiety, had largely improved cognitive performance..."(Zaske). Peter realized to not view everything so carefully though to live life and try new things.
