My Own Space

Within the cage of your expectations 

My heart is entrapped 

Longs to be free of your mind games


All my heart desires is a place 

To call it’s own 

Where it can roam unchained 


My needs are quite simple a 

Rented room will do

Anywhere I can call my own 


Where you cannot follow 

Seek to stifle 

My independent thinking

Stepping off The Merry-go-round Is Only The Beginning

When I was sixteen I went to live

With my grandparents

Willingly stepped off my parents 

Merry-go-round

Yet my world didn’t stop spinning

The Consequences 

Of my parents choices continued 

To annoy me still

Even today many years later my 

Heart still isn’t free

Of the pain inflicted so long ago 




Turmeric 

The little woman gave me some really good news – no she isn’t expecting – this morning when she woke up. 

Back in 2007 she survived a brain aneurysm that we had sorta kinda hoped was the source of her migraine headaches. But over the years since her surgery she has continued to suffer from migraines so severe that leave her incapacitated and unable to enjoy her life. 

A while back my mother had recommended as well as gave me a partial bottle of a natural supplement called Turmeric which is a natural anti-inflammatory to see if it would help ease the osteoarthritis in my fingers. Both my wife and I tried taking it but apparently we ran out before fully experiencing it’s benefits. 

BTW the brain itself doesn’t feel pain headaches, both mild and Migraines, are caused by the muscles around the brain becoming inflamed with inflammation.

About a month or so ago my wife asked me to pick up another bottle of Turmeric (which I bought from Walmart) put out by Nature’s Way 500 MG containing 95% of Curcuminoids – 475 MG.

This morning the little lady  (as John Wayne used to say) informed me her migraine headaches have gone bye bye after taking Turmeric for about a month. The really good news is she used to get a migraine every time the weather changed or it rained – over the last few days the area where we live has experienced some of the severest thunderstorms we have ever seen.

And guess what? Yep you guessed it she told me that hasn’t had a single migraine. 

WHOOPEE!

I also found out that of the three main pain killers: Tylenol, Ibuprofen and Alieve that Alieve is the most likely to cause depression. I’d been taking a capsule of Naproxen Sodium – a generic form of Aleive – five days a week to mute the pain in my fingers while working; which possibly contributed to the severity of my bio chemical and reactive depression that caused me to seek help two weeks ago. 

So now it is good-bye to Naprosexn Sodium and a great big HELLO to Turmeric for me as well. 

HIP! HIP! HOORAY!
