    Cannabis is illegal in Australia except in very limited circumstances, but the government has authorised a trial of medical cannabis. Yesterday I saw my neurologist about pain I get in my right leg. I take Gabapentin, 4 a day. I asked if there is any new drugs for the pain. He indicated the trial. Does anyone use medical cannabis?
  3. I had a brain-stem stroke in May 2013 and are now physically disabled. A friend of the wife, who is a regular here, said her ex-husband wanted to come for lunch. I have not seen him for over 20 years. All went Ok but his departing comment was “get well soon”. I should have said “I am well, only physically disabled”
