Belle  πŸ’œ 30. Liverpool UK. β™Ώ Real life mermaid. 🏊 Fantastic in water, not so great on land! My accounts: @belle.sherratt @huskyfenrirandfreyja

I did too much yesterday so I'm struggling today.
Fenrir's fault. He's a trash doggo that raids bins and has selective hearing.
But there's housework to be done.
Resting to do.
Dogs to stroke. Good dogs like Freyja. She's lovely. πŸ’™

This seems like a life time ago!
My old Tinder profile.

To answer your questions:
Yes I'm still single.
No I'm not interested. (Unless you're asexual and after a purely platonic relationship based on looking after me when I'm particularly crippled and going on fun adventures with huskies.
Then again I'm so used to doing things on my own I might forget about a partner.
Sex or anything linked is a no go so even though I'm not asexual myself I'd rather not frustrate myself.) #longlongtimeago #oldprofile #datinggame #tinderprofile #happybeingsingle #formerlife

Black or blue?
Ignore the fact I look frazzled.
I need new bins.

I'm not entirely sure at what point I decided that sawing through a steel tube was a good idea, especially with a little hacksaw.

Well one bit is done and it's mighty satisfying to get a little slice of tube. My wrist will be complaining for days but what's new!

I wrote this whilst in hospital recovering from an emergency appendectomy 9 years ago.

I've been on numerous opioid drugs since for various different reasons and every time they didn't really do anything. Nothing good, nothing bad. Doctors would just ramp up the doses and didn't listen when I said they were ineffective.
When I refused opioids I was told I must not be in pain or laughably I was told I was exhibiting drug seeking behaviour.... ....by saying no... baffling!

Anyway the anaesthetist involved in my knee surgery 3 years ago actually listened. He reckoned I probably lacked the right enzymes to process opioids. He did a crude test of the theory by giving me a hefty dose of IV fentanyl before going under general anaesthetic to see how I reacted.
Nothing, no pain relief, no fairy land, no nausea, no drowsiness. The nurse was impressed I was still conscious let alone talking clearly and coherently.
And so I have no opioids in my arsenal of medications.
To be fair it's not really an arsenal, more a meagre variety, I do my best to keep the number of meds I take to a minimum.
So at least I don't have to worry about the opioid crisis which is happening across the pond if it comes here. I'm still horrified by it all, though I guess there's comfort that I don't rely on any to function.

I'd make a useless heroin junkie.

Embracing the crazy hair colours and yellow roots.
I'll finish my hair one day. But today is not that day!
It's a red lipstick day. In other words I'm struggling and need extra magic and mental strength to push through stupidly high pain levels.

Armpit tickling yoga!

Not all my yoga practices involve balancing or bendy poses.
The majority are more like this.
Short.
Slow. (This is sped up a lot)
Not physically demanding.

Modify your practice to suit you and your abilities and fluctuations each day.

Doing what I love, taking things apart, frankensteining new things and messing about on the floor.

I'm feeling much more human as the weather cools down and humidity drops. Pain levels are still high but they're more manageable, less dizzy and shaky.

It's yellow roots time if you hadn't noticed! Brighter colours will follow, don't ask me when.
The radiologists/nurses at the hospital this morning said I had mental hair, in the best way possible of course 😁
