A friend asked me to describe what Psilocybin mushrooms are doing for me:
I don't take them all the time, only when - for what ever reason - I think to.
Difficult days, seem to be the days I'm reminded of their medicine. Unlike taking pills for pain every three hours (we all know what can happen) it's refreshing to take medicine when my body tells me I NEED it.
I'll be painting for example - & not remembering I ate mushrooms (it's not a big deal I have it with a bit of breakfast & honey) - about 4o minutes in... I might realize I feel good but not really associating why, it has not interfered with anything task I've been doing- I will at some point get a quick wave through my body as I describe -a jolt of tingly awareness, wave of happy .' ;) Unlike the other jolts I'm use to I welcome these ones. Then it passes, leaving me feeling content... thankful, grateful for things I don't always feel grateful for.
It certainly helps keep the peace, little things can slide easier - realizing - it's not worth the stress.
It's very easy to get caught up in depression and despair where you forget to be grateful for anything, when you live with chronic pain it can be quite consuming - if you let it. Mushrooms help me forget. They also help too with appetite - some days not long after I also get a rush of nausea- but it quickly passes- they are giving me a medicinal BOOST alone with an attitude boost. Visions? Hallucinate? No, I have not experienced any although I do hear/read/have watched interviews this sort of experience with colors & distorted vision can be achieved with Psilocybin - a.k.a. Magic Mushrooms but at larger doses- this is not about getting HIGH for me- it's about trying to get past the pain physically & mentally if & so far.. so good. I'd like to feel normal for a bit. The best part- I function - do all the exciting stuff like fold laundry, feed the birds - go with my son to see a movie!
DREAM about what new adventures await. Hope.
My last mushroom experience what did I do when "high"? I lay on my bed and planned every detail of my perfect home, it's 'l o n g' - so I can throw the ball for the dogs in the winter & then we can all get exercise. I'm also going to have a 'long lane box' filled with sand & shells and trinkets so I can walk the beach every morning - while looking out at the Canadian snow surrounded by moose and trees, bears and bluejays!!
What a lovely Mushroom trip it was. The dogs are Syked!!
If you are curious - RESEARCH - Gaia has quite a bit, there are many sites, documentaries, scientific studies- Paul Stemets speak about them this was interesting
I'm no expert but I can tell you with confidence:
Mushrooms won't make your breast grow. www.thestar.com/news/gta/2018/02/20/york-region-police-issues-clarification-after-officer-tells-student-panel-that-smoking-pot-increases-mens-breast-size.html I did hear a remark 'they should be fired', I don't agree... you can't even be mad at a particular person, I don't know these guys, I can't put a face with a name, I was not in the room, I did not need to be - the problem is the mentality as a whole and to hear it from the police I prefer best/live amongst - was a personal shock - the police I know keep kids from being hit by cars, keep our homes safe, help my son is a car accident, have been here for all kinds of stuff we all witness over the years, many would put their lives on the line for us, I still do believe... intentionally lied. Frig.
:( I would like to see them be permitted to USE cannabis for job related PTSD rather than alcohol or opiates, but I'm not expert.
Signs , signs, everywhere there signs.. don't ignore the signs..
I feel at times like every other human: Is anybody listening? Does any body care.? Eh?
I wrestle all the time with 'should I continue to share this blog'. It's caused some tension (to put it mildly) at times with others and myself, I ponder - no blog.. more time to paint!
It takes me a lot longer than many might imagine.
Today was one of those days - F*ck it I thought, I'm gonna stop... I was grumpy to begin with tho because today is my dads birthday. He passed away a few years ago now.
I was just thinking: Screw it - when I received an e mail:
Georgiatoons.com was extended until 2020, FEB 22 paid in full.
I have no clue when I arranged this, someone just purchased art so money was in my account... it all went smoothly, the email said :
It's getting older and more mature - that's a good thing.
Thanks Billy. I'll keep going.
I'll be back...
With Love & natural medicine, thank God.
