Thanks for sharing, it's really great that you have got off the opioids. I had a short period on Tramadol, it was horrible, I think I was just lucky at the time I was already using weed medicinally so it couldn't take hold quite the same way.
Also you might want to consider investing in a vaporizer. For those days when you might be ill and find smoking weed difficult, a vape is perfect. I kinda couldn't believe your dispensary didn't warn you about edibles!
