Living With PTSD

 Living With PTSD

I have PTSD,
But PTSD doesn't have me.
I use meditation,
To help block my negative memory.
I use music,
To help change my mood so others don't pay the fee.
I challenge myself,
To face the things I'd truly prefer not to hear or see.
I use self hypnosis,
To help change my reaction to people that make me want to harm
or flea.
I have PTSD
And at times, someone may need to help remind me.
I have PTSD and I am just doing my best to keep my hands to me.
I have PTSD snd I am just doing my best to once again clearly see.
I have PTSD and I am just doing my best to figure out how to again just be.
I have PTSD,
But PTSD doesn't have me.

Nudge Me

Nudge Me

Nudge me but please don't ever push.
Nudge me knowing it's hard for me to ask myself.
Nudge me and I can relearn many new things again.
Nudge me but please don't ever push.
Nudge me because I don't want to stay in this place.
Nudge me because I really need help right now.
Nudge me but please don't ever push.
Nudge me because I may not be aware what help I need.
Nudge me it shines a light to navigate this raging sea.
Nudge me but please don't ever push.
Nudge me but please don't make me feel in your way.
Nudge me because I need to know I have a reason to stay.
Nudge me but please don't ever push.
Nudge me because I've been pushed to my limit.
Nudge me because I'm tired of feeling all alone.
Nudge me with just an occasional call on the phone.
Nudge me or I am afraid I may totally disappear.
Nudge me because I can't express all my new fear.
Nudge me and let me know that you care.
Nudge me but please don't ever push.

In a Blink

In The Blink

In the blink of an eye,
We can die.
In the blink of an eye,
We can live.
In the blink of an eye,
We can cry.
In the blink of an eye,
We can give.
In the blink of an eye,
We can say goodbye.
In the blink of an eye,
We can forgive.
In the blink of an eye,
We can mystify.
In the blink of an eye,
We can again try......

New Year Survivor Prayer

New Year Survivor Prayer

May we put the year truely in arrears.
May the new year bring some relief from our fears.
May the new year represent a time of hope and renewed cheer.
May the new year ever remind us to hold our loved ones close and near.
May the new year bring some lightening of the load and a few less tears.
May the new year bring renewed strength to so many on a new medical frontier.
May the new year bring renewed faith, courage, belief and a reminder we're
all very precious and dear.
May the new year represent a time when we all realize "I'm" really should mean "we're."
Amen
Debbie

Wizards in Heaven

Wizards in Heaven

We've all had wizards,
They helped us to see,
When our sight got blurred.
We've all had wizards,
They treated us individually,
Never like a trampled herd.
We've all hadwizards,
They help us keep our balance,
When life gets all crazy and absurd.
We've all had wizards,
They were all specially entrusted,
With our most truthful, inner words.
We've all had wizards,
They encouraged us forward,
When our spirit was hurt and battered.
We've all had wizards,
They can even whispered  down from heaven,
Our messages that always really mattered.
We've all had wizards,
They are the few we trusted,
They are the ones that really heard our words.
We've all had wizards,
They were wise and their opinion truely mattered.
We've all had heavenly wizards.

Debbie Wilson and Medical Cannabis Neurology Improvement

Dear CHS Friends,
The following video is that of Debbie Maynard Wilson Class of 1971 and our Home Coming Queen! Listen to her story and I hope you can appreciate the benefit that medical cannabis has on patients with Epilepsy, Parkinson's Disease, MS, and other brain injury diseases such as ALS. Personally, members of my immediate family including myself suffer from Epilepsy, Parkinson's Disease and MS as well as one of our own CHS classmates Rick Durst suffers from ALS. I hold a Masters Degree in Biology and Medical Science from Marshall University. During my course of education I studied biology, botany (plants), zoology (animals), ichthyology (fish) and pharmacological and herbal medicine. I studied and researched as a part of my thesis the use of cannabis, hemp, herbs, spices and other natural medicines that I found as used by the American Indian "medicine" cures. It might be noted that a large percentage of drugs we use today are derivatives of plants and herbs. Cannabis is just one such plant that holds healing properties that promote the re-transmission of neural "signals" in the brain. Some drugs such as hydrocodone, oxycodone, morphine, methadone are pharmacologically derived from opium (a plant) and work to decrease the neural signals to brain causing the body to react to pain. These are classified as narcotic analgesics. I sold narcotic analgesics as a pharmaceutical rep for 15 years. I'm sure there are a vast number of you who have benefited from the use of those drugs. They are controlled by the DEA and can be legally obtained by a doctors prescription. Are they abused?? YES.. but they are obtained legally for the relief of pain. The type of cannabis we are faced with approving on Amendment 2 is CBD and would be obtained and controlled legally just as we obtain our controlled drugs, with a doctors approval. CBD does not have the addictive or hallucinogenic properties that THC cannabis has. I could go on to explain to you more but after reading the bill the political and social side of the debate but it would exhaust me. Knowing the properties and actions of CBD cannabis has on the patients in dire need of such healing properties it would be a transitivity not to allow those to have it. I am sure this video will cause the arousal a significant amount of debate among mine and others Facebook page but Debbie's Story as well as others story must get out. God made this plant for a reason. Just as He made other plants and animals for the sustainment of life. Shouldn't those of our friends, loved ones and fellow citizens be allowed to legal obtain medical cannabis for the benefit of healing?http://www.medicaljane.com/2014/02/24/the-story-of-debbie-wilson-how-cannabis-helped-her-treat-trauma-induced-epilepsy/--."
