Power of Prayer

Monday, January 14, 2013

emoticon Day 12 Binge-Free

I believe in the power of prayer. Thank you to all those who have prayed for me the last week. I feel your love and prayers. Today was the first day in a long, long, long time that I felt like just "Netty".

Last night, I went to an LDS 12-step meeting and was so overwhelmed by evil feelings and just broke down and said so at the meeting and expressed how LOW I felt and how ready I was for these feelings to leave my body.

The missionary in charge of the meeting spoke to me as I was walking out and said he would give me a priesthood blessing. I have been to many of these meetings and never been asked this before, nor have I ever seen anyone else solicited for a prayer.

Well... he gave me a blessing. I felt calm afterwards and was able to come home and get 6 HOURS of sleep.... Most in the last 2 weeks since stopping bingeing (I sleep great when I am bingeing weird).

I woke up this morning with a little anxiety, worried about going to work today but ready to go.

I was just fine at work. Felt at peace, not overwhelmed at all. Had a slow, quiet lunch break. Enjoyed my food. Talked to people about my bulimia without even crying. I felt okay and ready to deal with it.

I came home and talked to family and friends still without crying. I feel pretty good. Nothing exceptionally exciting, but I feel like I am just living and just being Netty again. IT feels great. There is so much hope in me. I feel people's strength and their belief in me. They truly believe in me, my soul, my spirit, not my physical strength... MY inner Netty that is a a sweet, kind, beautiful person.

THANK YOU for Being YOU and Loving ME.

    That is great to hear. While theoretically blessings should be requested, I don't think the good samaritan waited for the injured man to ask for help. He responded to the man's need.

    This is great Netty!!!

You HAVE to remember this feeling for when you have low times, you will need to draw from this.

Baby day at a time!
