Pu pu punishment?????

For what?

I just asked a question!

Okay.  Now I guess you want the story.  

I have chronic pain.   I can go for months pain free but when it hits, it is relentless.   Doctors just accuse me of being an addict after drugs.   I am addicted to NOTHING!!!  I have issues with alcohol.  Which is why I rarely drink.  But no addictions.  I am not after narcotics.   Only a moment of relief.

My aunt caught me in a moment of weakness.   Hours of unbearable pain.   I was ready to do just about anything for relief.  

She offered me some weed.   She thought it would help.   I have to admit,  I thought about it.   I decided to ask Dragon what he thought.  


I had just about decided totally against it.  But I did want his opinion.  He didn't hesitate with a loud NO and are you crazy?

He planned a barn burner because I asked.   I think he may not understand how bad it gets.  

I explained that even if he had said yes,  I would have still had to think long and hard.   I have NEVER used illegal drugs and don't want to start now.   Nor do I want to use a drug that is potentially addictive.  

More checks in the con column than the pro.  

I just needed to hear it from him.   I doubt that I would use weed even if it was legalized.  I have seen it ruin lives.  I don't want to be a pot head.

Dragon was most relieved after we talked.   He didn't want to punish me any more than I wanted it.

Now that is what I call relief! ! !

No punishment for me!


  1. Yeah, punishment for asking a question isn't really cool, so glad it didn't happen. As for the weed, I've heard it can really help, and last I heard it's less physically addicting than pain medication, though it is addicting mentally, particularly if you're using it for pain relief and it works! But obviously, one would have to be where medicinal marijuana is legal, and that seems to vary and change from day to day. I don't know what kind of pain you have, but earlier in the year I strained my neck/shoulder, and I had some luck with black cherry juice and valerian tea.

    1. I think it scared him and caught him off guard. It is still illegal where we live. And will probably remain illegal for the foreseeable future. I can only hope that changes.

  2. Marijuana is helpful with pain relief and stomach ailments. Adddictive personalities might have a problem but otherwise it provides relief. especially for cancer patients using less than other pain medications. Not sure if medical marijuana is legal in the state you live, it might be worth a try.

    1. I am one of those with an addictive personality. Pain management, nausea, anorexia, infantile spasms, epilepsy. The list goes on and on.

      Yep. Illegal down here and I really don't want to leave. Attitudes are beginning to change about pot. I can hope. :-) For now I'll just have to use my ice pack and live with it.

  3. Hey happy you and your Dragon talked through the misunderstanding and you didn't get punished.

    Sunny made some excellent points...when my dad was dying from cancer, he didn't want to spend his last days totally out of it on pain meds so he had my brother get him some pot (illegal yes) but it helped him with the pain and nausea and allowed him to enjoy more of his remaining time with the family.

    Actually marijuana is less addictive than sugar, caffeine, nicotine, narcotics and alcohol.

    Sending lots of prayers and healing energy that your pain subsides.

    Gentle Hugs and Blessings...

    1. Thank you. I had one really bad day this week. Just one. I'll take my blessings where I can get them.

      The medical community is getting closer to recognizing the useful propoties of the drug. One day it will be legal!
