At Kat Myrman‘s suggestion,along with Jane Dougherty, I’m trying out the Lune form this month. The Lune is a three line poem, either 5/3/5 syllables or 3/5/3 words.
The weather held fine
I walked the fields with canine
Dark grey clouds stayed fine.
Yesterday I wrote about how I have been feeling the last few weeks. I have been telling you all, about (I hope) the last few weeks of weaning myself off of Gabapentin. It’s a neuropathic 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 me quite. This week I am altenating 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.
Today is a pill in the morning and a pill at night day. Yesterday was just one at night. It was a hard day the imaginary spiders were all over me even in my hair , I was edgy and stressed, no energy and hot and cold sweats. Not to mention the aches and pains.The night was not good either.
So far today I have had an upset tummy, the sweats… No spiders..yet. I have kept myself busy this morning hoovering, washing floors and getting Ruby’s meal, the hubby walked her. I am exhausted now but at least I have achieved something. I have had to cancel my Pilates lesson today just to tired and achy.
I don’t want to moan so positives: jobs are done, I am washed,dressed and I have make up on.
Look I am smiling too. The thing is I do have to make a huge effort or I will just curl up on the bed… I have been there before and it doesn’t help.
So upwards and onwards, don’t want hubby to worry mind you I might bite his head off before the day is out.
Okay I am not going to bang on about this everyday but I will keep you informed of progress.
Oh!the spiders attacking my left side….
