This one is a follow-up, so-to-speak. Jacob is the son I was carrying when I wrote "Mommy's Special Little Boy". These two poems are very different from my usual writing. I do have a soft side, but only where my family is concerned, lol.

I wrote this one years ago when I was struggling with an addiction to prescription painkillers (after life-saving surgery) I had actually been to rehab a couple of times & just couldn't "get the hang of it". I discovered later that the cliche is true...you won't quit til you're truly ready; you can't do it because everybody else wants ya to or because it's the RIGHT thing to do. As with my mental illness & the poetry I write about it, I do hope that my experience can shed some light on someone elses darkness. Struggling with addiction is absolutely the worst thing I've ever been through! It envelopes you in such habitual selfishness & self-centeredness, it's unreal, & you are so not yourself;whereas mental illness & other difficulties are beyond our control.

I wrote this to my 3rd son (Jeremy) when I was carrying my 4th (Jake). Jeremy was having a tough time accepting my being pregnant & what that meant for him. Believe it or not, I actually remembered that feeling from when my Mother was pregnant w/ my younger sister, funny huh? I just wanted to put his mind at ease a little, & mine too. Writing always does that for me.

This poem is basically about my decision to conform, which is extremely difficult for me.

These are my thoughts when I'm going through an episode.
