Greetings, dear Journal, dear journal readers. I hope that you had a nice weekend. I tried to log on lastnight but it was a busy Saturday night here and the server must have been tired lol..So I gave up, knowing that it would be better to try on a less busy, Sunday night.
So an update. I have decreased my codeine dosage to one, 40mg dose daily. I have some kratom powder which has been a great help. It pretty much is able to mask the worst of my withdrawal symptoms. But I still am feeling fatigued, wanting to sleep a lot, plus some lower back pain. But the kratom has been able to see me through the bad thoughts and depression that is a part of it.
It has been a long, dark winter, and we just got more snow. I find that I get a bit down about that. But Saturday and Sunday were bright and sunny and I can feel the pulse of spring around me. Today I went outside and gave my favorite crow family some roasted peanuts in the shell. They cannot resist them and always come in to grab them up and take them away. I get a kick out of watching them try to take 3 or four double shell peanuts in their beaks at one time, and then fly away with them... they are greedy. I put a rather large pile of peanuts out this time, and I could tell they were getting a bit tired. But they would not stop until the whole pile was gone. Some of them must have made about ten trips altogether, a difficult feat after a sleepy, inactive winter. They must love them because they smell good, and are full of protein. Unlike bread scraps, etc. they especially covet peanuts.
