Hi Pastor Kathy!

Yes...I am a Christian...I am Orthodox..like Greek Orthodox...only I am not Greek. I have been a Christian for over 30 years....even though I feel like I am just starting out almost everyday.
Really....I know God loves me more than I even love myself...I think its just this new illness and the meds that are putting me over the top.
I see the Dr. next week...and will address some of it with him to see if we can adjust the meds. For now....it just gets wilder every week....! I have never been sick before and taking medicine and all that is new to me...I have been spoiled before this.
Still...thanking God for all of it....for the new compassion for those who are sick and the new patience I am learning and for the reminder that we are only on this earth for so long.
I lost several family members suddenly just recently too....two of them younger than me and totally unexpected. So I think grief is in part my struggles now too....
but God will get me through....just to quiet down and hear Him is the issue...to wired on the meds.
thanks for your prayers.....God Bless us all....Meg

all denonimations welcome! with of course a lot of Orthodox suff....

Hi Pastor Kathy....!

Are you really a Pastor?? How cool is that!
I was just diagnosed with myasthenia gravis a month ago....and I have just started a regime of high dose prednisone.....and wow....am I hungry all the time! even right after I eat.....
glad to have sp to help track what I am eating....I think this will help.
I had been losing till I started the prednisone...and at least right now I am not gaining....! Thanking God for it all....attitude of gratitude...!
I work for my church a lot too on my free time (single) and old...but very happy.
Just wanted to say hello...and we can do this! ps...cute baby!!!! Meg
