A lovely post watashi. I too, am awakening throughout these long nights wishing for a good deep sleep, rather than dibs and drabs (little pieces of sleep that do not replenish soul, mind and body). I too, have fear of my physician, b/c he holds the power of how I will feel next day, next week, and next month. really, for someone in chronic pain; the medicine we need to make life possible is being withheld, by forces of evil. By this I mean the large pharmaceutical companies and their greedy lobbyists that permit the development of poisonous concoctions costing $20. a tablet, while waging war on the producers of the pharmaceuticals that nature provides. I hope I am not waxing too political here, but it needs repeating; our doctors are being hamstrung by power holders propelled by greed and disdain for the very persons they so depend on for their continuance. I find now, I have to stop struggling. I have struggled to survive, so much, in so much pain, I think maybe your beautiful aunt knew more than the rest of us, when she decided to stop struggling. Does any of this make any sense?
