It was getting so BRUTAL I went to the Dr.s. Friday... Ready to talk brain surgery ;(.. trouble walking, constant zapping, poking in my head with pencil - EXHAUSTED from 'THIS *&^%$#! ' where I was napping 3 times a day, can't focus - was screwing up mail! & when I screw up mail- I sent the one meant for Toronto to the UK and visa versa.. but what can I do - you have no idea how difficult this truly is- those closest to me & who SEE me understand more. I mentioned a medication I have been researching for cartooning reasons of all things, a friend mentioned it how it helped them with exhaustion - I had just watched a documentary where it was discussed and I then really weighed out my options & then discussed it with my Dr. whom I trust and am blessed to have.
Pills or brain surgery or - who knows. The prescription granted.
"You have to take it in the a.m. or you won't sleep" the pharmacist warned Norm, (do you understand it got so bad I have stopped going OUT) "and she will feel it right away."
So, I got up and said "here goes"... Took one, had breakfast & took the girls right away
I have to go EARLY with none around because I can't walk all three.
They listened well it was a really nice walk with snails.. and I remember thinking
"Feel it right away? It's 2 hours later I feel nothing. F*cking bullshit... "
and started to think why bother ... it won't work.. then I realized:
I'm not twitching as I stumbled over a rock. The more I walked the more I noticed..
I walked in the house- Norm was reading the paper- I said: "LOOK at me!"
He did.. and I just said LOOK.. he said wow - "both your eyes are really open!"
& they stayed that way for more than 5 minutes! That is how long I've not had a break- for YEARS. He watched and said "WOW, you're not twitching.. " & I saw he teared up.
Thank you God for this break- yes, these are HAPPY tears.
I am getting BREAKS 20 - 60 minutes and they are less intense. Oh my gosh I pray this works Of course I'm leary of the meds- but it was truly effecting my quality of life- between it and the arthritis- which I also am being asked to go talk about anew medication which my Dr. believes will SLOW mine down but I'll need a Trillium grant.
YIKES. That means for those who do not know - $$$$$$.
We'll see. I've yet to meet with that specialist. I am embracing this NOW-
OUT in the garden with MY GIRLS - Social media can wait- I did celebrate by putting a contest on my Instagram account: WIN a SUMMER custom cap! By me..
Enjoy the day - embrace it!
With TLC & THC - and a few chemicals - for now ... we'll see If it does not continue to work
I'll probably discontinue it.
The THC & Poppy keeps me off of ANTI depressants and helps with my pain & has saved my son's life as well as countless friends. Forgive Justin Trudeau for allowing any reefer madness - he has bigger issues to focus on, - it will happen VERY SOON!
Got your gardening gloves?
I give thanks to God & Great Growers very day!
GO enter here: Instagram Georgia Toons. The hat is below- I'll draw the winner on Friday.
Cannabis & fear mongering tomorrow. Legalization SOON!
Will you be busted for walking down the street for smoking a joint?
I HIGHLY doubt it.
