Morgan Freeman Discusses Fibromyalgia Pain and Legalizing Marijuana

Many of you may know that actor Morgan Freeman suffers from fibromyalgia, although from his words his pain seems to be more localized to the left side of his body injured in a bad car accident and hasn’t gone full body yet. That doesn’t mean his symptoms don’t cause havoc full body. It’s just my guess. Anyway, I stumbled upon this article where Freeman discusses his fibromyalgia pain and says that marijuana is the only thing that provides him with pain relief. He says it’s benefits are enough that it should be legalized nationwide. It’s an interesting article and a quick read so I thought I’d share it.

Morgan Freeman Interview

I stumbled upon this amazing article on Morgan Freeman and wanted to share it. I didn’t know that he has fibromyalgia due to a bad car accident 4 years ago. He can’t really use his left arm anymore and that’s where the pain is the worst for him. His outlook on life and fibromyalgia is just amazing. He’s a complex, contradictory person that we can learn a lot from. He’s a wise man living in pain just like us.

My favorite part of this article is:

“I’m very concerned about longevity. I don’t want to die because I’m stressing over bullshit. There’s lots of shit to do, so when I have a chance to do less, to do nothing, that’s what I do.” He says something else, low and guttural, and once again, I cannot hear him. He grabs his left arm, winces through what appears a supreme flash of pain.
