Off the beaten path.

My husband and I will have been married 20 years next Tuesday, a miracle we made it this far considering my prognosis 3 and a half years ago. As I write this I am sitting in a chair on a glassed in deck at a beach house on the Oregon Coast.

The smoke is bad in the city and my heart sank a bit as we closed in on the beach, we couldn't even see the ocean through the haze but the house is located on the river and it's a lot better right now, the rain is promised to come tomorrow, I can't wait.

I am going to take mushrooms this weekend, it's time for me to try a bigger dose, not a journey amount but enough to feel it. If you take a higher dose once a month or every now and then it can have the same effect as microdosing regularly, so I am going to try it, I have nothing pressing to do FINALLY 😜 I finished hyperbaric chamber therapy yesterday and I don't think I will know the exact benefits but I am hopeful. The crappy part is that my eyes are pretty bad, the pressure of the chamber over weeks of therapy (60 sessions) will temporarily change the vision a LOT and it will take 10 weeks to get back to normal. I saw a bunch of splashing in the river but I couldn't tell what it was 🙁 I am glad to be here though, it's nice to get out of my usual routine for a few days for sure.

Dang it! I heard 2 more splashes as I have written thus far and have no idea what it is! Blergh, ha! It could be so much worse, the nature can be felt as well as heard and I am okay enough with that.

Charles is bringing me Mexican food from down the road, a gamble at the beach but like with the status of my health, I have hope.

Until next time ❤️
