Dig deeper

Thursday, June 09, 2011

Started yesterday on a positive note-the devil is after me...I found myself quickly overwhelmed
at work. The work load/stress continues to grow as I continue to fall further down.By lunch
(which I worked through)I was treated for a uti-I had an appt with the rheumatologist at 5pm
who reminded me I have 2 kinds of arthritis & most likely fibromyalgia,which by the way,increases my heart risks. I have only lost a lb since my last visit.The good news is we will
try adding another drug to get my pain level down/the bad news is more side effects...ah well.
Some days it is hard to get through-much less believe in a future...there must be a reason I am
being hit on all fronts(other worrys too),I guess I need to really dig deeper,spend more time in
devotions & trust God. Trust is a hard word-guess it wouldn't be trust if it was easy...

    I think "Trust God" would be a good mantra for you. I went through a period in my life where I used that and it really helped. In any situation, you can say those two words and it puts a whole new light on things. They dissolve stress, they dissipate worry, they erase comprehension. Trusting God seems to solve everything. It's really a good lesson to learn and one we often need to revisit and relearn as life moves on. Hope you are having a good week! Keep the faith! Trust God! Spark on! emoticon

    Put all your trust in Jesus, put all your troubles there too, then stop stressing over them, let the Lord handle them. ( once you put them on the shelf for him, stop taking them back down) If the day is too hard, stop dealing with the day as a whole, just hour by hour, or even min. by min. Put a smile on your face, and love the Lord with all your heart! Things will begin to fall into place, and get easier. Sending Love, and Prayers

    I agree with Kelly and Maggie here, Linda. It is amazing that your attitude is so good considering all that you face each day. I think water therapy would be great for you and hope you look into it. We have many facilities here that give free use of their pools and even have special programs set up for people with Arthritis. Do ask your doctor about this or investigate on your own.

    Hang in there sweetie and know that we will be here for you. Sorry you are having such a tough time right now.

    Hugs, Sunny emoticon

    More Hugs Linda. I was going to ask if pool time has been discussed. See if there's a program of water therapy they can refer you to, seems to me you would qualify.

    With all that you are dealing with on the medical front, I think it's fantastic that you are trying to stay positive and continue to work on your weight loss goals. Medications take a toll on your body even while they are doing "good", and definitely affect your weight loss. Are you doing "pool" workouts which are easier on your joints? Stay strong and continue to believe in yourself!
