So much has happened today, so I’m going to share this with you.
Today, I was in a solid 9/10 pain. After six or so hours of suffering with it, I decided to go on the hunt for pain relief.
While going through a chest of drawers, where I keep medications I don’t regularly use, I came across two triggers – a bottle of Gin that I’d hidden back in 2021 and two strips of Codeine.
As an Alcoholic and Codeine addict, who’s officially 15 months clean and in severe pain, I looked at them for a good minute before stopping, putting them away, and leaving.
I went and found paracetamol instead – which took me down to an 8/10 – which isn’t great, but acceptable.
On top of this, it’s Lughnasadh. I baked bread for the first time in a year, and this year it went kinda well?
I’ll be releasing the bread recipe soon, but for the time being – know that the first attempt was a failure, but I pushed through, made a second batch, and was very happy with it.
It’s been a lovely evening.
And while I’m in pain, and wish to not be, I’m happy to still be here.
