I Need To Stand!

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Ok guys I am still alive. I have been offline for a few weeks. Things have been overwhelming with lots of doctors appointments, test, and therapy. Plus my husband had his doctor's appointment to go to as well. So we have been going going going for the past two weeks. I have been so worn out from all of it. Then there was a big problem with my internet and phone. The company that provides our service finally found out what the deal was. The neighbor that just moved in on the right side of us had service put in. They dug right into our line and cut it. We were without service for days before they figured it out.
I have been trying to keep up with tidying the house, chores, and started some work in the garden. I have to rest in between things since I am still recovering from my back surgeries and long hospital stay. My doctor says I have a lot of scar tissue from so many surgeries and there is inflammation. That is why I am having such a hard time when I do anything. I am adjusting to the pain and doing a little more as time goes by. I am just thankful I can do some things now. I have faith that I will come along a little fast in time.
I thank the LORD for all HIS help and healing for me. I am thankful for everyone that has kept on praying for me, even though I haven't been online much these past months. I have been struggling with my weight still. I get started back to my healthy life style with planning my meals and some exercise, then I slack off due to the busy weeks I have been having. I have had to eat on the run pretty much. So we have been eating out a lot. Guess what? My weight went up some more. I feel so guilty about it. I want to get back and try to do what I am suppose. I can't seem to get back to where I need to be. I am hoping and with the LORD help to start again now that the doctor's appointments have slowed down some. The doctors still don't have an answer for why I am having these dizzy spells. I was suppose to hear from the neurologist for an appointment, but nothing has happened. The doctor said that was the last restort to go to when all else has given no answers to a health issue. I can't seem to pull myself together enough to get back to where I was before. So keep praying for me guys. I went 13 whole months eating healthy, exercising, even walking a 5k, and now I am in a slump since my illness. I need to get back on that healthy streak again. I was losing so much weight. Now I am going in the reverse. I feel so bad about it. I feel like I got my knees knock out from under me and I can't get up again. I know that is a lie from the devil. He really kicks us when we are down doesn't he. I need to humble myself before the LORD and ask forgiveness. I need to stand. Ephesians 6

    Great to see you back! One of the above writers has some great advice. Stick with the basics and try to stay with one thing you know you can do. Does not have to be big things. Do it for a couple of weeks and then add another small, doable thing. I check in with SP first thing in the morning. Gies me a mental shot of inspiration.

    Love to you. Cris

    You will get through this period. Start with the basics. Change one thing and stick with it for a week or two. Choose something that you know you can do so you build your confidence. You have had a horrible spell, not only with your health but you are grieving, too. It's OK. Give your body, mind and soul time to heal.

    Our Lord will perfect all that concerns you. I empathize with you because I know what it is likely to work real hard to achieve and have a set-back. However, remain strong and all will be well.

    I am so happy you are slowly healing post-op. ALso that you got your phone back in order. You are very blessed that you were able to have surgery. I do not have the insurance , so I would never be able to have any surgery.
    Getting healthy is the main thing now,, slowly graduating to more movement.. If you feel you must, do some leg lifts sitting in the chair.. lift soup cans,etc.. every bit helps..
