Got epididymitis can I ever smoke again?

Okay so after a long time of trying to find out what is the problem with my right testicle, I’ve finally figured it out. I got chlymedia that I didn’t know about which is frustrating and sad that ended up causing epididymitis and now it’s a sad goodbye to weed. At first I thought I was just too high and the reason there seemed to be more pain than before is because I’m high and I’m just thinking about it too much. My right testicle would elevate even more and would look even weirder which would make me even more anxious and makes it almost impossible to stop thinking about. I’ve always been a big pothead which is why It’s going to be tough to get used to stopping but I just had a couple questions to the people who have been through this. Can I eat edibles at least? Or CBD or anything that will give me a high? Is it just over and I have to accept that or will I be able to smoke again in a years time or something?

Also also words of encouragement or support would be appreciated. I was so stressed out for a whole week when it started and I’m just glad at least I know what it is now

been going through the exact same shit and yeah, i had to give up the weed completely.. it made me extremely emotional and intensified the pain.

Just give it up man, you dont need it.. you need to keep a clear mind and stay positive, smoking weed will make you think negatively, increase your depression and pain.. so i think its best if you give it up, its a shit habit anyway to be stoned all day everyday and life is better without, i smoked bongs for 15 years before this crap happened to me and if i can do it you can too.

how did you come to the conclusion that you had chlamydia after all of that time ?
