bigbrokenbeautiful With GREAT PRIDE AND JOY I would like to congratulate my amazing sweet husband for his 1 Year mark of being clean from using and abusing pain medication! God is sooooo freaking GOOD!! It has been a HARD year walking through this but I am so thankful for God's protection and deliverance! It has helped us to deal with a LOT of things we were avoiding and denying were issues. Now we are starting to see God turn things around. We are both planning on writing out our testimony of this last year to share. We would love your continued prayers and support! Soooooo proud of you my love!! 4d

iamboozart It's time we saw a cure....
Sadly though as long as these greedy money grabbing big pharmaceutical companies keep manufacturing this poison they have disguised as pain medication the government's will never ever let us see any cures for cancer or any other diseases for that matter! They keep get richer whilst we keep getting sicker.... Maybe one day there will be a government that puts people first, sadly I don't think it will be in our lifetime....
This one's for you Gayford my beautiful bredren.... Jah Bless my friend xx

iamboozart Today is my favorite day on the pain medication withdrawal train, it's day 3 and on day 3 something quite magical happens, for some reason my already seriously confused brain starts to produce real endorphins again, it doesn't last for very long unfortunately, usually just for day 3 and then of course it's all downhill after that! But day 3 is fabulous!! My pain levels go down to about a tolerable 7, my energy levels go up slightly and of course my mood improves, so yay for day feckin 3!!
Today I WILL paint!!
Have a great weekend and be kind to each other....
Boo xx

theyogidr Happy Sunday IG! I wrote an article on my webpage about Yoga for MS for those interested in learning about some of the health benefits of practicing yoga. MS is still being understood by researchers, but the studies being done lend credibility to yoga being a positive modality for individuals diagnosed with MS. http://www.theyogidr.com/main/uncategorized/yoga-for-multiple-sclerosis/ #happysunday #yoga #multiplesclerosis #research #teach #yogateacher #diagnosis #illness #sickness #chronicpain #painmedication #medication #yogi #beyondthemat #medicine #pilotstudy #asana #makeadifference #nerves #autoimmune #autoimmunedisease #nervoussystem #centralnervoussystem #cns 3w
  •   cami11211 I have a client with MS. We do yoga once a week and she loves it. 3w
  •   theyogidr Thanks for sharing @cami11211 ! I'm writing an article on yoga for autism...so many positive outcomes through the use of mind exercise and/or yoga. 3w

williamrichards3 A very common issue when it comes to being treated by a doctor for back pain. Drugs only treat the symptoms, they don't go to the root of the issue. Basic fitness may not fix all of your back pain issues but it can get you completely clear of relying on medication to get by. That dosage is only going to work for so long, eventually you will need more. #backpain #medication #painwithfitness #painmedication #helpwithbackpain #mybackhurts #fitfam 3w
  •   becksta_9 Saw a physiotherapist on Wednesday. He told me mobility and exercise is what's going to finally crack this. They've taken me off the surgery list . However, im still not better. I feel like I'm just going to hurt all the time but I'm willing to power through it and really give the exercise a go. What type of exercise would you recommend? Considering I can't walk far or stand up for long. I was thinking swimming? Maybe a water aerobics class if I take it easy? The physio previously mentioned an exercise bike...but I can't see how that will help my posture? I'm so unfit as well 3w
  •   williamrichards3 Congrats @becksta_9 that's awesome!! I honesty would spend way more time building the core endurance and working on hip and leg mobility. If you want to do weights or machines stay away from any spinal loading (squats, standing pressed etc.) swimming is awesome! It allows the body to move through a lot of different positions without loading the joints. Make sure after swimming you focus on the key stretches and mobility I talk about. Especially the couch stretch, cheetah stretch and pigeon stretches! The bike won't really help with posture it's just an easy way to get the cardio in without too much impact 3w

iamboozart Addict..... I am the Monday morning blues, the car that will not start, the jilted lover crying with the jaded broken heart
I am the rainfall at the wedding, the stray without a home, the girl without a prom date who sits at home alone
I am every broken promise, the homeless guy on the street, the boxer lying broken as he finally admits defeat
I am the patient sitting waiting for the call that she has cancer, the reason she is heartbroken just looking for an answer
I am the sun that never shines in a never ending winter, the child sitting crying because he has a splinter
I am the broken dog that wanders, just looking for a home, the hunger in his belly in his never ending roam
I am the junkie on the corner, desperately trying to get a fix, the hooker at the motel as she turns another trick
I am the L that starts the lonely, the P that starts the pain
I am the reflection in the mirror and addiction is my name.....

iamboozart It's Monday and this is how much pain medication I have to last me until next wednesday, that's 9 days, 216 hours,12,960 minutes and 777,600 seconds.... Pain will drive you crazy! It turns you inside out, upside down, it makes you irritable and moody, depressed and anxious, it is life changing....And nobody truly understands unless they live with chronic pain everyday, I'm not talking about the odd ache here and there, I'm talking about unrelenting, soul destroying pain, 24/7!! Living with one condition is hell, living with multiple conditions is torture! Terminal illness is horrendous but at least at the end there is freedom from pain and suffering, there is no freedom from pain when the illness is A: Not curable and B: Progressive which means it will get worse! It's a living nightmare, you can't ever plan anything because you just don't know how bad it is going to be on any particular day so the easier thing to do is just not go at all, why should the rest of the family suffer because of me, so you spend more and more time at home, alone, isolated with only pain for company. We were invited to a bbq next week by one of my hubby's coworkers, she knows that I am sick so she said I would be able to lie down on her day bed which is downstairs, and as much as it was a really kind gesture there is no way in hell I would go to somebody else's home and lie down in their living area with a house full of people, it's humiliating! Pain is a mutherfucker!! And so is the medication prescribed for it! Maaaan I can't say this enough! If you are healthy do NOT take that shit for granted! I was healthy, never went to the doctors and in the blink of an eye everything changed, don't take good health for granted, treasure it and be kind to your body....♡
Real talk!!

  •   mcjanabiz I love the "rawness" with which you speak! My illness has no treatment/cure so a fvck lot of good a diagnosis does, right? But, there are a couple drs working on research for it (if funding would quit being cut). I don't know how pain meds are regulated where you are but here, you are treated like a junkie if you need them. And I live in Kentucky where they put doctors in jail if the make any mistakes prescribing. So they would rather not prescribe and save their livelihood than help a person and get thrown in jail. 1mon
  •   mcjanabiz Sorry to rant. It's a club none of us wish to be part of. I hope you feel better. I love seeing your art. Take care. 1mon
  •   iamboozart Rant away sista!! I'm always here and love a good rant! I'm always available for phone rants too if you ever feel inclined, I'm a great listener as well as a ranter! :) I swear since my accident in 09 it's been a domino effect, one thing after another and then the Lyme Disease diagnosis well that was just the icing on top of the proverbial feckin cake!! Lol! I believe in telling it like it is, I don't sugar coat any of it because there is nothing sweet about chronic illness! It sucks!!! All of it!! I spent 25 years looking for answers in the bottom of a bottle, finally got sober and now I'm a junkie, I may as well have kept drinking! At least it was fun! Well it was until I fell out of my truck and almost died! Oh the feckin irony is endless!! :) Huge hugs my lovely xx 1mon

lauraa731 #Dayoff cuddled up with #mybostonterrier took him to the dentist and got 6 of his teeth pulled out. Six! Poor baby. It's for his own good. He doesn't want to walk. Doesn't want to move. Thank God for #painmedication #9yrsStrong #lovehimtopieces 1mon
