This is me….MEG
BOOBS BOOTS & HAIR
Because I have all three and no matter how shitty I feel, no matter what this stupid disease throws at me, I am going to always rock the BBH!
I am first and foremost a mom, but thanks to my “checking the wrong box,” I am now defined by more than that. I was diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis) in the end of 2007. Since then…life hasn’t been the same….it’s only gotten better. More recently, I have found relief from my chronic pain using cannabis and have now begun chronicling my MMJ Adventures! It has been a complete game changer. I hope to find my place in the cannabis industry to help others learn about this amazing plant.
“I am back to LIVING life, rather than just struggle to survive LIVING.”
My kids are my life, they are my GREATEST accomplishment. To know that I have raised three truly amazing people, who are kind, and considerate, honest, and caring brings a warmth to my heart that I can not begin to explain. They have been with me through this journey, from the very start, and although I know that finding out your parent is “sick” can be a scary and difficult thing to deal with, they have amazed me, time and time again, with their ability to show that they “have my back.”
They realize that I am NOT like other moms- I am frequently inappropriate and I suppose some of that has to do with the disease, but I think a larger part of that is because of my attitude and outlook towards what life deals me. I choose to embrace the things that happen with humor and laughter. That is who I am, who I have always been (look for the good in things.) BUT what I hadn’t realized is that by seeing me face this disease with the openness and acceptance that I have towards it, has made them better people. They have so much more empathy towards others than I think your average person has. They know what it is like to have their mom become disabled….to need to rely on a cane or a Segway to get to the park or into the grocery store, but rather than showing a lack of understanding or even being angry about this change, they too embraced it, giving names to each of these new objects in our lives.
The simple fact is that through it all I was and will always be their “crazy” mom, spewing out inappropriate things, demanding that they hold up towels in the Safeway parking lot so that I can pee because I KNOW I am not going to make it into the restroom, occasionally embarrassing them, puffing my MMJ and always loving spending time with them.
I hope you enjoy my stories!
