I guess you can say my story is quite unique….
I’m 33 a mother of 3, I am a patient only for a few months. Prior to that, I was uneducated on the many benefits of marijuana. Like many others I was quick to judge the many people I knew that smoked for an occasional high, yeah they would say “I’m stressed out” and went on and on about how relaxed they were.
Anyway….after many years of severe headaches and chronic back pain due to an epidural gone bad, my best friend finally convinced me that I should give cannabis a chance.That’s where it all began….I researched did my homework and now am a strong believer and patient of medical marijuana. If I can turn back time….I would have used the sweet herb before and perhaps had a better quality of life with my children. Imagine all those lost days where I could not function.
This is life now….. life is good. That was the tough part of this whole new way of life,how to tell my kids or should I tell my kids. After some thought I decided to discuss the issue with my two teenagers. It was very tough when they heard the idea of their mommy smoking pot, when to begin with I didn’t drink except on occasion. Well they learned to accept it, I educated them and it hasn’t taken away from them but given them more from me. Its been quite a journey, I never do it in front of them, I try to do the edibles but they take too long to kick in. If I must, I go to my garage when they are asleep and do what I have to do. Still there are times when I feel bad about it, knowing that it is totally against my family’s principles, then I start to think…..how it was put on this earth for this reason….to help people like me that are against prescribed chemicals get relief and have a better quality of life.
This is my story, I hope that when others find themselves in a similar dilemna they have good friends and understanding families like mine, that care……..
