Dirty as a sow

Ingrained with mud old food.

Relentless in love

Tirelessly protects her young

Yearns for mud, she is dirty.

Eyes are always upon you

Simply Testify

The best way is honesty

Indeed in thought testify

For then you will own

Your immortal soul.

#JusJoJan 2019 Daily Prompt – Jan. 27th

Our prompt for JusJoJan 2019, January 27th is brought to you by Enthralling Journey! Click here to find her last postand say hi while you’re there! Enthralling Journey’s word for our prompt today is “cathartic.” Use it anywhere in your post or make it the theme of your post. Have fun!

Cathartic

Last year those of you who know/ follow me helped me through the last withdrawal from all pain medication. A few years back I managed to get off of tramadol. That was a long and hard journey but I got there so when it came to getting off of Gabapentin.

I thought this can’t be so hard? It’s a neuropathic painkiller. I had been on it for over eight years I weaned myself down from four times, six hundred mgs a day to one hundred mgs twice a day then finally 100 mgs every other day. With no great help from the doctors who just want to hand them out like sweets to keep me quite.

I kept you informed up to a point until I was taking one 100 mgs morning and night one day and just one 100mgs in the evening on the alternate day. Then down to one pill every other evening. I have said nothing since but I am tablet free and have been over five months now but even more important I am no longer measuring the pill free time.

It is Cathartic ( yes finally I am using the prompt word) to be free of the ties that being addicted to painkillers bring.

Yes, I am free, the physiological freedom, the purging of needing is truly Cathartic. If anyone is going through the same journey I will say it is not easy. Emotions, physical pain and true fear are battles to fight but if I can do it anyone can. I am not pain free but I am drug free.

I have kept quiet about being free of all my medication because at first I was afraid to actually say it out loud, publicly. So please keep it up if you are going through withdrawal of any kind. Drugs, drink, gambling, being in an emotionally bullied situation. Do persevere, do ask for help do let friends and family in. The results are Cathartic.

Thank you all for listen and your support. 💜💜

JusJoJan 2019 Daily Prompt – Jan. 25th

Your prompt for JusJoJan 2019, January 25th is brought to you by JP! Click here to find their last post and say hi while you’re there! JP’s word for our prompt today is “Balance.” Use it anywhere in your post or make it the theme of your post. Have fun!

Balance.

Standing on one foot, striving for body balance was not Gina’s idea of Monday morning fun. Why did she do this to herself, on balance she was useless at these classes but she persisted.

Week after week, rain or shine she went to class, why, it was not as if her life was in the balance. In fact was it really of any importance at all.

Standing there she finally came to the realization that she hated the gym, life was for living not surviving. At this point she lost her balance completely and crashed to the floor. There was a stunned silence in the room. Everyone looked.

Sod this though Gina this is not a balanced way of life I have had enough. She stood up straightened her leggings and walked out never to return.

The following Monday morning she was sat in bed sipping coffee and reading the news, later she had lunch planned with friends then a long dog walk.

Her life was her own no more classes no more gym. Here body balance was perfect.

The women at the gym wondered if she had lost the balance of her mind….. They were just jealous.

South like geese all flappy and Zoomie

Say you will stay and make my life Zoomie.
