Not Kill nor Cure   Leave a comment

First I am sorry that I have not been on here for a while, but just because really, those that have missed me, take better aim next time ;P :).

So finally after years of pain in my hands, knees, neck, shoulders, and back, I have finally been diagnosed with arthritis in my spine. Got told 12 years ago about my knees, and that the damage is, even back then, irreversible and severe, 3 years ago I was told I had Gout in my hands, and on the 27th December 2012, after months of nerve problems down my right hand side, I was told I had Ankylosing Spondylitis, which is arthritis of the spine, which will affect not only my back but my neck, shoulders and hips, as well as my eyes and mouth Ribs, and give me nerve damage.

26 years ago I first went to my GP and told him about the pain in my shoulders and knees and neck, but I was told that it was all in my head, and since then I have done labouring jobs, 6 ½ years in a supermarket on the produce department lugging sacks of spuds and 40 k boxes of apples and bananas all day, a year and half in a cash and carry, a lot of hiking and camping, carrying a full 75 l kit bag plus tent, roll mat, and sleeping bag and guitar and walking 15-25 miles each day.

So, Danu Created me with this, I must have been because it affected me at a young age and there is no cure and it will not kill me, just maybe cripple me, so I was wrong, I am not dying, I have another 40 odd years left, lucky me, not. Until Morrigan the Phantom Queen of Death decides to take me. When I told my wife she asked “What kind of a God would do that to someone, your’s can not be very nice” But those that have read and understood my pages may understand my comment to her which was maybe it is a test, a lesson which I need to learn for something I did in a past life, or to let me fully understand and be thankful for the ability of movement.


But there is one bright side to this, and that is my use of herbology, I made my Rosemary oil using fresh rosemary in a base of Groundnut (peanut) oil and let it ferment for 28 days and then filtered the oil into a clean jar. Early clinical tests (my own on myself) without the aid of any NSAIDS and the oil has helped with the pain which a full dose of Paras and NSAIDS never did. And with no side effects I can use it as often as needed, but usually only three times a day on a really bad day. When they grow I will harvest the nettles growing in my garden and do the same with them. nettles are reputed to be anti-inflammatory so with the rosemary and nettle I have all the healing I need without any side effects. Top Cool me thinks.


For me this is one of the worse disease I can have. I am a Rocker, I love to “Rock Out”, but I have been told that that would be detrimental to my health, The attacks of Gout have stopped me playing my guitar and now my fingers are stiff and not so flexable, playing has become painful. I love walking but now I should only walk short distances, and while my mind, Kai, and Will and body wants to do things my skeleton will not let me, and I have another maybe 40 years and just getting worse. Can I even work anymore? I do not know, I think that I have at least 5 years work left in me, (when I finally get a job in this dead city) but the only job I maybe able to do is admin, but will the stress of sitting at a workstation for 8 hours do me more harm than good? The Gods alone know, and I am bored of not working so I am trying to move to Fife, in Scotland, 250 miles to the north, because they have jobs there and I will not be in a city but close to three.


Tis strange, but I have already accepted this and yes I am pissed, but I was created with this so it is Fated, shit happens. But when I pass over I will find out and yes I will have a few choice words to say to someone if I have this just because She could. Where would the lesson be if Morrigan had taken me before, which is why I am still here. When they deem I have learned, then they will call me. End of story.
