CBD Helps Relieve Anxiety

By Luke Lombardi, Section Editor

I’m struggling with anxiety. Needless to say,  I have been dealing with my whole life. It is common  for me. For example, I am driving or simply sitting on  my bed doing nothing, and all of a Sutton feeling paranoid about life and and challenges it brings. For almost two years, my friends and family tried  to convince me to start taking CBD. I knew it would help me, I was very nervous about taking it. I was feeling nostalgic about the past, I have strayed away from taking medicine that I didn’t need. I have had fights with my mom about this countless times and always came out the winner.

Consequently, I slowly became  more open to trying it. I have medical professionals in my family and even they were advocating for me to try it.  I was starting to become willing to try and help myself. I had to convince myself that it was the right thing to do. All of my life, I have had an issue doing something that I knew will help me. I tend to make everything worse than it needs to when in reality, just doing whatever I need to is easiest.

For Christmas, my mom bought me a bottle of CBD. At first, I was shocked. I’m a little upset. She had done this without notifying  me and I felt that she knew I didn’t want to take it. For the next month, she badgered me to try it and told me if I didn’t, she would return it since it was expensive. This guilt trip eventually worked and I began to take the pill.

I could tell it was helping. My biggest issue with anxiety was when I was driving. I had confidence in my ability to drive. However, I  was always afraid of others on the road. The CBD pill helped get rid of that. I am no longer scared and am more subdued. This helped me tremendously as I no longer dread doing things. Especially, in school or at home. I am much calmer and don’t start stressing out  about whatever is going on in my life.

Constantly, my family tells me, I worry too much. Prior to the CBD, I would run  every outcome to an issue in my head. I would convince myself that the worst possible outcome was going to happen and there was nothing I could do. As I took  CBD more and more, this has happened less often . I am content living my life and not stressed out about every single detail that has no meaning or influence on my big goals.

Don’t Let the Pandemic Control Your Life

By Luke Lombardi May 6, 2020

Madison Bara As about a month of quarantine has passed, I am starting to get tired of hearing about the coronavirus (COVID-19). I understand that we are in a pandemic and need to take it seriously, but we don't have to talk about it every minute of the day.  During this quarantine, I rarely listen to the news, as I know that the situation is still going to be the same. Thus, instead of focusing on the...
