By the sea
Your prayers are VERY much appreciated, probably, more than you realize. It's true, I'm going through a very tough time right now, both physically, as well as mentally, but I've survived lung cancer thus far and it doesn't get much tougher than that. I'll survive this as well, God willing, especially with the support and prayers of wonderful friends like you.
As for details, I have an extremely painful and often crippling disease which the doctors have yet to give a proper name to, but are calling it Neuropathy. Because of the medication I've been forced to take in order to help control the pain I now have an ulcer acting up, making it very difficult to eat without becoming nauseated. Needless to say, I've lost a great deal of weight, not to mention, rest and sleep. I'm extremely exhausted and because I've had to cut back pain meds in order to help my stomach heal, the pain from both ulcer and the disease has increased dramatically, forcing me to spend nearly all of my time in bed. The medication I take is a neuro-blocker and once you've cut down on it, it tends to affect your memory very adversely, not to mention, cause your pain to sharply increase. That's exactly what it has done.
I'm losing weight, getting little rest, trying as best I can to eat, and when I do, keep the food in my stomach where it belongs. Graphic enough? I'm sorry, don't mean to be, just trying to let you know what's going on.
Needless to say, I can barely walk, spending almost all of my time either in bed, or when I'm up, in a wheelchair. I do little walking now because the pain has increased to the point of making it nearly impossible to do so.
But, you know what? Life is supposed to be full of bumps in the road, right? If it weren't, can you imagine how dull it would be? I'll take the bumps, just hope there aren't any sink holes up ahead. LOL
My thanks and best to each of you. May God richly bless you all.
