    Surprize!

    HELLO EVERYONE

    Wow, I just read all the posts and im so sorry that i worried you all. To be honest, it scared me half to death.

    but im ok for now. I'm in a sort of halfway house for homeless alcoholics, all women. Well, one has a little girl, 8 years old.

    The best i can remeber is i was sitting in that Starbucks and started to shake realy bad. A lady saw me and told the baristas.

    I ended up on a stretcher on my way to the hospital when they said I had 3 seizers.

    Anyway, I spent some time there then in a cheap rehab. Almost got kicked out cuz visitors were carrying, lol.

    That was bad.

    Anyway, I'm here. Nice to be here. And nice to be thought of. Thanks.

    WELL, LOOK WHO SHOWS UP! I must have just missed you...

    So glad to see you here, Kit! You made a dramatic entrance.. and ended up making a dramatic exit, lol! But so very happy that you were able to get some help.

    Very glad you've got a place to stay for a while - how long will they let you stay?

    Oh, just happy to see you here.

    Kit, I lost my father to alcoholism...suicide at the age of 48. So I understand the power of the drug.
    You already know that you cannot fight this yourself and you've admitted that people, even professionals have failed.
    Why not try asking the only being with the power to help you overcome your addiction...ask God to help you.
    Just accept Jesus as your savior, give up your life to Him, pray to Him and together you will find the strength to fight.
    He will give you clarity of thought, a direction and then a purpose.
    For daily assistance check out my two forums - what would Jesus do and spiritual health.

    You're SO Right, Pastor

    Pastor, YOU certainly don't need ME to support your comment, but I just wanted to say how very much it meant to me personally. Thank you so very much.

    Kit, and you don't NEED me to tell you this, but I feel the need to do so. What he said was so very true!

    I will make a confession here. I just flushed the last bit of MY medicine... or rather, a crutch - down the toilet. I'm done with it. It's been weighing heavily on my mind for some time now.

    The medicine did help, but it also brought on other issues that, frankly, kept me from reaching my full potential with having a relationship with the Lord.

    Anyway, the smell is still permeating throughout the house. I've put dryer sheets into the lock box that I stored it. Hopefully, the dryer sheets will eliminate the smell, as for me, it's a trigger.

    I flushed hundreds of dollars' worth of mmj down the toilet this morning. Didn't think to take a picture of it until just before flushing the last (smallest) batch down the toilet.

    Thank you, Pastor.


    Frankly, I didn't realize, yesterday, that I would make that decision, to stop medicating with medical marijuana. As I said, I'd been debating, praying, pondering for quite some time on this issue.


    A little background: I've made this decision after years and years of abusing my body with alcohol, primarily, and then, prescription drugs. My physical health is very poor.


    I've had back surgery twice, but didn't find relief. (I have an extra vertabrae, a congenital defect.) I've developed MS, glaucoma, and chronic pain from fibromylagia. I was recently diagnosed with Parkinson's. I suffer from Restless Leg Syndrome and, if that's not enough, have a Circidian Rythym condition, which causes my body to go haywire several times a month. These are the "big" things; I won't bore you with the "little" things.


    As you can see from my long list of ailments, I have a complex medical life. Thankfully, I've survived cancer twice.


    Those who are aware of the list of "permissable" medical conditions eligible for a medical marijuana prescription can clearly see my eligibility many times over.


    After having extensive pharmicological involvement - anything and everything on the market - I made the choice to go cold turkey on all my meds. NOT a good idea, but for me, at that point, I had had 3 life-threatening medical emergencies due to prescription interactions. I had already mentioned my Fentenyl patch near death experience.


    At one point, my long-time physician suggested I try medical marijuana. I clearly remember that first experience. It was as though my chains were finally taken off. There was pain, but it was totally tolerable.


    I was able to walk more than the few steps I had before. (I had been in a wheelchair for the most part of 2 years by then, but getting physcical therapy to stay strong.) The second evening, I walked a full block! And Back Again!!


    That first week, I cried like a baby... so relieved at finally finding something that actually worked!


    I ended up even losing 60 pounds in 6 weeks WITHOUT changing my diet of 1500 calories (to which I still maintain 1500 calories.)


    This lasted about 6 months. For some strange reason, however, the medication, although it was exactly the same, stopped working. So, I tried to experiment with different strains of the mmj, even started growing it. I ended up learning how to make my own tinctures, etc.


    Nothing. Nothing I did brought relief. This was crazy! Why is my body deceiving me this way?!?


    Today, I am not medicated. No prescription meds, no marijuana, nothing. I've regained the weight and added 60 lbs more, in spite, still, my careful calorie count (thyroid). I am resigned to simply - but not so easily - "feel the pain", as in childbirth.


    I do not know why my Heavenly Father doesn't remove this from me, but it must be for my own good. A scripture: "All these things shall give thee experience and shall be for thy good."


    So here I am. Dealing with daily, hourly chronic pain. But I AM dealing with it. Relief may NEVER come in this life. But there ARE coping skills I've learned that help.


    All the mmj did was mask the pain. Yeah, I could deal with it better. BUT it had complications too.


    Ever heard of "Fibro-Fog"? Well, I had fibrofog x's two, with the mmj. I was wasting my life zoning out, instead of bearing down and dealing with the pain.


    This feels right. I respect the right of another to choose for themselves, but for me, my life needs to be lived....FULLY LIVED. Yes, even lived with chronic pain.


    Thank you for allowing me to share a most private part of my story. (It helps that my name is not real, lol)


    I will continue to be very cautious of any new drug offered as a panacea for my ailments. I will take it in prayer first.


    Thank you.
