42, Day Twenty Seven.

Jane Dougherty has come up with a theme for May . It is 42, now Jane describes it thus: “42 after Douglas Adams’ answer to the question of life, the universe and everything. The form is like the Cherita in its structure with a bit of added interest. The first line/stanza asks a question or makes a statement that begs a question, the second stanza/two lines sets the scene or the background, the last stanza/three lines answers the question or resolves it in some way.

Today’s Cheritas from day 27 to day 31 are about my ( I hope) last few weeks of weaniny myself off of Gabapentin. It’s a neauropathic pathic painkiller. I have been on it for over eight years I have weaned myself down from four times six hundred mgs a day to one hundred mgs twice a day. With no great help from the doctors who just want to hand them out like sweats to keep you quite. This week I am altinating between one hundred mgs morning and night one day and just one hundred grams in the evening on the alternate day. It is hard,harder than I thought. This last part is so hard I just want to reach for the pills. So you guys can help me by listening to me writing it out. A big thank you for baring with me.

Why should I stop the pill

It’s too difficult and it hurts

Skin crawling , energy in spurts

The medication is not needed

The want in my brain is seeded

I feel so ill, I must stop the pills.

    Oh Sis, it must be so hard going through this withdrawal. I am sorry I haven’t been around much but please know I am behind you, cheering you on through the worst of it and celebrating as you manage to get over each bad patch. πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

    Willow, I’m thinking of you and sending you encouragement and strength. Also wishing your doctors were more willing to help you through this weaning process. Hang in there, you’re doing well! ❀️❀️
