Please prevail on my behalf.

Amen

Fibromyalgia – To travel or not?


Most of us know how uncomfortable traveling just a short distance can be. Imagine several days or weeks of traveling.

Make sure your travel companions understand your limitations. Plan you itinerary in advance and write in rest and relaxation to stop yourself from overdoing it.

CHOOSING SIDES: United States. vs. Other Nations


This is important, please read. Thanks Dr. John for taking the time to do the research.

All About Healthy Choices

eu-vs-us-fight medium

When it comes to government regulatory agencies established to protect the consumer from harmful foods, chemicals and dyes/coloring how do U.S. standards compare with other nations? With so many factors used to evaluate”safety standards,” can we agree that the government should use scientific evidence supporting the HIGHEST STANDARDS (most stringent)  limiting the selection of POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS products, chemicals and dyes/coloring to protect the consumer? In other words, when in doubt, BAN THE SUBSTANCE!

This is not the case. Are you aware that different standards exist for different nations around the world?

.

For example, did you know:

“the use of lead-based interior paints was banned in France, Belgium and Austria in 1909. Much of Europe followed suit before 1940. It took the U.S. until 1978 to make this move, even though health experts had, for decades, recognized the potentially acute — even deadly — and irreversible hazards of lead exposure.”¹

Forgiveness

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:14

“If you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Forgive others for what they do to you no matter how bad it seems and our heavenly Father will forgive us our sins. Don’t harbor resentment. That isn’t forgiveness.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

Help me to forgive those who have caused me pain over the years.

Amen

Depression – To my Friends and Family


I am not myself, nor have I been for at least 5 months or so since I was last in the hospital. I haven’t recovered from that stay and the medication they put me on and so far my psychiatric nurse who prescribes my meds has not has much luck with the few things we have tried. I see her again on Thursday. Just a few more days to til I try something new with its possible reactions.

I can’t take much more of this depression. I am pulling away again from my family and friends. I am trying to pretend everything is ok so no one starts worrying about me, but my son, for one, sees right through me. Our conversations usually end up with me crying. Heck I am crying over every little thing as it is.

I am trying to keep my faith strong and write my daily devotions which is a struggle right now. I am not reading much, nor creating as much as I used to when I am feeling better.

For those of you that pray, please pray for me, for those that don’t please send positive thoughts that I can beat this again. I don’t want another hospital stay since it usually hurts more than helps and it is no fun.

I cannot beat this on my own.
