DAY 11: WANTING THE TIME DENIED


Originally posted May 21, 2017 As you might have noticed, I didn’t post anything yesterday and I can almost hear the collective sigh of relief! LOL I know it’s been some heavy stuff lately so I can’t blame you for wanting a break. It was a pretty good day, especially for me on a weekend. Andy and I had company…

DAY TEN: ON OTTERS AND CROWS


Originally posted May 20, 2017 It’s just my own perspective – and I mean no disrespect to anyone’s faith – that no one religion or faith system has the market cornered as far as truth, reality, and especially justice. I’m open to anything that gives me pause to think about my life and the world around me. That said, I’m…

DAY NINE: ON GRATITUDE


Originally posted May 19, 2017 I was just taking my bedtime medicine and for the first time it crossed my mind “hmmm… am I due for a new patch?” NOPE I had company yesterday! And it was awesome! I woke up earlier than usual… and didn’t linger in my bed too long. I took a super long walk with my…

DAY 8: ON GOING THERE


Posted May 18, 2017 Wow, I just read what I posted yesterday and took another look at your responses. Sometimes I wonder if I’m an idiot to be putting it all out here like this. But instead of the judgement one could easily expect, I see your responses to all of this insanity of mine and I read so many…

DAY 6: INTO THE MYSTIC, VAN MORRISON


Not much sleep again last night but at least not a repeat from night five… for which I am eternally grateful! Sorry if I got too deep on some of you yesterday. It was a pretty deep kinda day around here after the night before. So for now, I’m just “rockin’ my gypsy soul” with Van Morrison “Into The Mystic”…

AIN’T LOVE STRANGE, PAUL THORN


Another Paul Thorn ditty. I think it was the first one I heard and I’ve enjoyed pretty much everything he’s ever done, be it deep or funny. His first album was called “Pimps and Preachers” because (for real) his daddy was a preacher and his uncle was a pimp. I guess that says a lot about his overall perspective on…

DAY 5: SHIT JUST GOT REAL


The short story today is that last night was beyond awful. The long story is pretty long so no worries if you’d prefer to stick with the short version. I Love each one of you just for caring. MLMB… —————- I think I sort of know now why it’s so hard for so many people to stop using opiates. For…

DAY 4: MACK TRUCK?


Photo from MackTrucks.com I took a good look just to make sure there wasn’t any structural damage to my building from the Mack truck that drove through here last night. At least it sure felt like it this morning! Lol Didn’t sleep very well again last night so I’m still clearing the cobwebs. But even in my funky haze I’m…

DAY 3: TOO EASY?


I keep thinking, “shouldn’t this be more difficult?” 🤔 I can’t say I feel great but I can’t say I feel much more pain/discomfort than on a typical not-so-good kinda day. I expected to have the fidgets and be all wiggy since that’s what would happen when I’d run late on replacing a patch. Instead I’m just feeling exhausted and…

DAY 3: BURNING UP BUT NOT OUT


Wow, will tomorrow be the fourth day? Hard to fathom. One thing I thought I should recommend given all of your support is to invest heavily in Tampa Electric since I’m burning up the cash on the air conditioning! It’s hot/cold but mostly hot and I’d rather wrap up in a blanket. Didn’t sleep very well last night, just in…

FB DISCUSSION ON ADDICTION: THOUGHTS?


A friend of mine posted this video and asked others to give their views. What followed was, from my vantage point, an excellent exchange of ideas. I’ve excluded names and some personal exchanges within the comments. I’d Love to know your thoughts as well! MLMB… —————————- Initial Post: This is really harsh and will probably bother some of you but…

DAY 2.2: YAWNING ZOMBIE


Characters and images are copyrighted by the Walt Disney Company, all rights reserved. I’ve been a complete zombie all day. I don’t even feel safe walking Andy at this point so it may get a little wiggy again. The doc gave me a clonidine patch (it’s for blood pressure) and I put it on last night before bed. This is…

DAY 2: HAVE I TOLD YOU LATELY?


I’m finally out walking my Little Dude and I’m feeling so grateful and blessed to know I have the support of so many amazing friends. I never expected such an outpouring of Love and I’m overwhelmed. So this is from me and a much happier (and lighter) Andy Pandy Bear. With your help we made it through day two with…

FENTANYL FREEDOM: JOIN MY JOURNEY?


This was my invitation to a handful of trusted friends when I asked them to join me on the private FaceBook page called “Freedom Circle for Pati” ———— I know this may be a bit unusual but I could really use your help and support so I’m asking you to join me in this journey. Most of you know that…

DAY 12: ON MEMORIES AND MEMORIAL DAY PART TWO


Originally posted on May 22, 2017 Just a heads up. There is not enough paint to make this a pretty picture. I completely understand if you’d prefer to pass. MLMB… ————————————- If you read what I posted the other night about being needlessly thrown into full blown narcotic withdrawal, you (as did I) only got a tiny glimpse into the…

NIGHT TEN: ON MEMORIES & MEMORIAL DAY PART 1


Originally posted May 20, 2017 I don’t know where this is gonna go but i’ve been trying to watch a probably decent movie for 45 minutes now and I just can’t even take it in. And I really don’t think it has anything to do with the movie. I just can’t seem to get out of my own head tonight……
