So I’ve been visiting a physiatrist for the past few years getting a general check up and talking about how I’m feeling and what not.
For the past few years I’ve talked about how I haven’t been feeling like myself as of late talking about my anxiety, panic attacks, depression and my Attention Deficit Dissorder. I use to take meds which did work at first but I hated the side effect of getting headaches. I ask them once years ago “Why not weed?” Can’t remember what he accurately said but he denied it saying something a long the lines of the effect being TI much of a short burst and won’t help me.
This year I tried weed for the first time in my state where it’s not legal with my bud. And it helped me tremendously than my meds ever could, it remedied my issues and I discovered that it actually helped me focus in small doses (doses of weed? I don’t know the units of measurement.) I’m currently sober now.

You think it would be a good idea to tell my doctor this even tho what I did was illegal in my state? Is it possibly I can be cleared for medical possession? Pic not related.

I believe there are laws in place that allow you and your doctor to have confidentiality regarding something like this. Unless it's something like you confessing an intention to harm someone -- then they have the right to get someone involved. The most your doc will do is talk to you further about why it's a bad idea.

you're protected by HIPPA for whatever you say to your doctor, and letting them know what meds you take and how they affect you is essential to your treatment.

everybody else in this thread is a retard. drs are people. Your interpersonal relationships with them vary on a case to case basis. You have to gauge whether or not your dr will be a good person to tell.

Also yes OP tell your doctor about every substance you take. They can't tell anyone as long as you're not about to die or hurt someone, and it will better inform them of how to better treat you for whatever it is they're treating you for.
