Lance “BbqDad” Merrick



I’m Lance “BbqDad“ Merrick and just so you know I have bipolar disorder and PTSD. It has been an illness I have had to deal with for 40 years. It has only been in the last few years that I’ve been taking medicine to treat my symptoms. Luckily, I found something that works for me.

I have also learned techniques to use to calm my spirit and anxiety.

I use music, meditation and meds.

One of the medicines I use to treat my symptoms is cannabis. I use it everyday as a sleep aid and for relaxation.

I want to thank you for following me and especially some that have become closer friends as you have responded and shared your own personal stories with me.

We have laughed, we have cried and found support.

I feel like I owe it to you to get even more personal so that we can build a stronger connection.

I want to create a community that supports each other.

So keep in touch and follow me if you are not already one of my followers and enjoy the ride!
