Thanks for offering your support. This is just what I need right now. Please pray for me, because I am studying medicine in the Dominican Republic, and I signed up to take the United States Medical Licensing Exam Step 1 on December 28. There's a lot involved here, because I'm constantly fighting feelings of unworthiness, because I didn't have enough money, a green card, a good enough interview, etc to get into a US medical school. Now, I am aiming for a residency in ophthalmology, but the average score is 235, and my practice scores are 188, which is a barely passing score, and much lower than the average U.S. med student score of 224. I don't want to be haunted by a low score for the rest of my life, because foreign grads already have a statistically lower chance of getting into residencies-even with high scores, and the residency I'm interested is competitive even for U.S. grads. I'm 28, and I've only had one job for two years. The rest of the time I've been in school. I'd like to finish strong so that I can maybe focus on having a family of my own. In addition to this, one of my brothers is getting married next year, and the other is graduating from high school. In order to be close to them and be able to attend these events, I'm applying through my school for permission to rotate in the U.S. for a two-month period. Being in the U.S. will make it more feasible to attend both events and still meet all my course requirements. It will be too expensive and too time-consuming (because of flight layovers and such) to travel to both of them from here. In order to be eligible, I have to take the test next month and pass it and submit it with my application. In order to have a chance at ophthalmology, I have to get at least the average US score to have a fighting chance as the underdog. Please pray that I am able to focus on the positives in my academic past, that I use my time wisely, that I am not waylaid by the daily grind, that I concentrate on the work at hand, that I study exactly the right material so that I can answer the questions presented to me on the day of the exam, that I remain calm and trust in the Lord's goodness and mercy and the fact that with His help I can rise out of my current situation and make a change in my circumstances starting now. I have only a short period of time to raise my score, but please pray for that miracle. I'm aiming for 248. With God all things are possible. He cares for the lily of the field; surely He cares for me, too. Thank you for taking the time to present this prayer request to the Lord on my behalf.

I would appreciate any/all prayers....I had routine blood work done....just talked with someone at the dr. office...evidently they are concerned with my blood sugar and cholesterol reading...but, I have to wait until Monday before I can hear from a dr. about what needs to be done. Evidently, they have had the results for some time...just hadn't got around to notifying me. I realize I have to deal with whatever and will...just pray that I won't worry myself too much over the weekend. My Dad was a bad diabetic and ended up having to have his foot removed. I want to get a handle on whatever it is that I have to do.

Thanks.

I just need prayer guys that I take my meds tonight cos I haven't taken them for about 2 weeks and I'm beginning to get sick. I told my community nurse I'd post this yesterday but I didn't....

Also prayer for the hospital managers and the drop in that they'd stop patronizing me and be more compassionate (not allowed to go to drop in when I have PMS even if I'm really sick and have no other way of getting help *sob*)...

Jo, may I suggest you take some time during your day to meditate on God's word. As you read, pray that the Lord will calm your soul and direct your path today. Sometimes it is just a matter of letting ourselves hear what God has to say to us. Nothing in of itself is sin, it's what we do with the thing that can become sin. The internet in of itself is not sin but visiting sites that leave us further from God or putting God last in our lives can become a sin to us. Our freedom should not become license to put God in the wrong place in our lives.

It is well with my soul.

What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.

Och Ma is a lot better but I can't deal with her because of extra stress. I tried not to log fitness mins and calorie count today but I find myseld doing it because I'm stressed out.

My elderly friends in Ed keep warning me about the dangers of the internet and I'm like "I know them. The internet isn't all bad." They are against, facebook, dating sites everything just about. Argh

The J in London keeps saying "I got paranoid @ the w/e and I know what causes it - anxiety." and I'm like you really have no idea man. I mean this is the guy who has asperger's and when he finds a crazy fad diet goes on it, loses 10lbs and then tells me I'm fat!!! Well the slow horse often wins the race.

Never mind the news etc. etc. I'm so on edge you would not believe. Ma said something about 'hope you win the photography competition' on I think like Tues and @ the w/e I had thoughts of hoping to win (have seriously no chance!!!) to earn her love and affection and that just set me off again. I will NEVER be as good as my twin and she won't hear any criticism of my twin even though my twin is running away from the past, etc. etc and is treating the family like scum as a result (despite professing Christ. I don't get it. I really don't.).

So feeling mega stressed and pressurized today and just want to curl up and hide....

Sorry to bother you on Sabbath but Ma is suicidal and blocking me out again. She has depression and has come off her anti D's (with docs permission. I had no say in it) and has been crying and acting like a 3 yr old for a week now which I find very hard to handle. Now she is threatening suicide for the 2nd time in a week if I so much as contact her. Sure it's just manipulation but you never know. Really worried about her.

Can you all pray 2 things. a) that she stops threatenin suicide and is delivered from such thoughts and (b) that the doctors eyes are opened so that she gets the real help she needs.

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this trying time. It's never easy watching someone you love die. Cancer is a horrible way to die. It leaves you no dignity and no recourse. I'm so sorry for your loss.

It is well with my soul.

Need prayers for my sister. Her husband is dying of cancer and she and their daughter are in total denial. The doctor is exasperated as what to do to help this poor man. They won't let him sign a dnr, she feels we want him to die. His liver has completely shutdown and his kidneys as well. He is having trouble letting go because of all the anguish he feels his is causing. Thanks

I'm all restless this pm. I phoned the council and they will agree to me moving to a 2 bed place - phew. Tomorrow we get the mutual exchange forms then I have 6 weeks to pack (approx - could be less) and get rid of old clothes/books etc. I also have to find some men to help me move!!! And someone to unwire the cooker. I have big poly bags for all my clothes that I got when a dept store closed down the other year. Have to dismantle my high sleeper (it has a bed underneath sep) and give the wood to a friend. Then when I'm in apply to the DWP for like money for stair carpets etc. No one is about today. Duty social work are really short staffed and I'm not really able for much I'm so excited. So pray I can be 'realistic' soon. Also I wanted a lodger but someone said the council wouldn't allow that. Dang.

Blessings.....and thanks for the prayers.

J
PS. NB. I move just when I reapply for DLA which I need to pay off debts and which there's no guarantee of me getting!!! Talk about stress....J

Well I broke the Sabbath well and truly and went to see the 2 bed place in this block. It's lovely. It's really nice. Needs new carpets and some decoration but that's about it. Praise God. He also likes my place. even has an over the bath shower (till I can get something better put in) and like good neighbours (obvious. I knew what I was looking for).

However,

The guy I want to exchange with says he heard a rumour the council would not allow a single person to move into a 2 bed place. So please pray about this. I need the space for all my books and guests and things and I need better access to the balcony in case I need air. (currently my back door backs onto the neighbours bedroom). It could also take up 2 6 weeks to approve it but we won't apply if the phone calls tomorrow turn negative and all the no's are online. So I will phone them tomorrow am. Anyhow if not there's a possiblity of a move to a single bed flat out in the country with a garden so please pray. I don't want to be more isolated though and really feel like the Lord is saying 'Jo you will stay in this block till you're well, have a job and can afford to buy'. So anyhow.

Good morning friends. I'm here to ask prayer for 2 very dear people. My friend Katherine is going through surgery this morning to have a stint implanted in her stomach for dialysis. Please pray that the surgery goes well and that she won't need dialysis until the implant has healed in 6 weeks. Also my Aunt Lil will be going for surgery on her right lung on June 26th for cancer in the top quadrant. She had her left lung removed last year due to cancer but feels the Lord still has work for her to do on this earth. I thank you for your prayers. lk

It is well with my soul.

I don't normally send stuff out like this but I thought this was a very special cause. My daughter Tauna sent me this request and I wanted to pass it on. Her mother-in-law asked her to send a card to this little girl and after she explained her request I asked her to put it in writing so I could pass it along to my friends. I am putting my card together right now and putting it in the mail. From what I understand it doesn't have to be a birthday card, just a card of any kind. Let's spread some love to this little girl.

Char



Hey the other day Joann gave me this little girls name and address and asked if I would send her a birthday card. This little girl is not like every other girl because this one had her 10th birthday on October 14, but this little angel has bone cancer. She had already lost one leg to this horrific disease and the bone cancer is spreading and the doctors have told her and her family that she does not have much longer with us. When asked what she wanted for her birthday all she asked for was a bunch of cards. Now I know that we are starting into the holiday season but I pray that everyone who receives this will take just a few minutes out of their day to send this little angel a card. Its not everyday that one can make a wish come true but this is one we can all help with. I want to thank you for your thouhgts and time, it is greatly appreciated. If you teach a Sunday school class, a bible study or even school, if it is possible please have as many people as you can send a card, letter, or birthday card if you choose. Lets bring joy to this little child and her family during such a trying time. Please keep Jessica and her family in your prayers. Thank You and may God Bless you for your help! Following are her name and address.

Give thanks that the increased meds I'm now taking are working wonderfully and I've been near enough symptom free for about a week now :)

Please pray that Michael can help me rearrange the bedroom tonight and not tomorrow afternoon. He's at the library online @ the moment and I don't know his email so I can't email him

I shifted the sofa down to the bin room this am (trash room). I am sore and tired. Please also pray I can get the lounge ready for the new sofa on Wednesday and that I can get some study done soon and that they can get the sofa in the lift (elevator) etc.

Thanks

Jo

I am just home from the psych ward for the weekend pending discharge (God willing) on Monday and the 'robots' seem so real and everything seems so grey and boring. Also the flat seems very empty now that I'm home and it seems like I feel like I have cabin fever when I've only been home a few hours. Please pray for this weekend and my continued recovery from psychosis. The meds have been upped (the long lasting injection) and I pray I can come off the tablets soon.

Please pray....

Thanks

Jo

I need some prayers. I have been feeling sick again. And add to tha my Physical fitness test for the Navy is coming up next week and I am not sure I will pass it. No that isn't right I know I will pass it but I just don't feel good worrying over it makes me feel worse. Add to that the whole move thing and everything else going on....well I am sure you understand. I could just use some prayers

Pammy,

Don't be so hard on yourself. Could it be that the weight came back due to withdrawl symptoms? Also, having other health issues dosen't make it any easier. We are here for you and want to encourage you to keep your head up!
Stick to your plan and fight through this thing! You are a wonderful friend and motivator and I will be praying for you!
Melissa

Thanks so much Melissa for the wonderful responses!

Today went alot better than what I thought. Actually it wasnt bad at all. I had a very painful past and I was just now able to forgive those who hurt me mentally and physically. So that is helping me to move forward. I have COE and I have had bulimia. I have to be really careful because the more weight I lose the more I feel like the Devil is pulling me toward my bulimic side. Oh guess what? The devil did not win last night. I did not binge. I am so proud. It was so hard but I made it. I knew if I binged then I would feel guilty and do something I would regret! It is a horrible cycle. The councelor made me realize we are not perfect. We all fail at times but God will help us back up. I am determined with Gods help and my God sent "Spark Angels" (YOU!) that I will win this battle in a healthy way.

In Nov of 2007 I had to have a procedure to remove precancerous cells from my cervix. It was a horrible procedure almost as bad as having a baby with no pain med just numbing shots. Monday I went to get a biopsy done to see if the cells were gone or if we have to do some other procedure. I thank God everyday that we caught it in time. It was right before becoming cancer and It was coincidence that I got checked that day. Well I take that back. GOD made sure I was checked that day! I am a little worried about that. I have been trying not to worry. I know that God will be by my side! I guess last night I just got really stressed out but you know I learned something last night. I learned that I dont have to binge just because I am stressed. All I have to do is PRAY and God will help me. If any of you ever need me I am here for you.

I'm praying for you Brogan, Tammy and Tmomma.

Tmomma I hope your appt. goes well for you! Don't be nervous because the counselor is not there to judge you, but to help. Maybe you feel ashamed of your past, but I can see by your 12 day- free you are doing GREAT!!

Just tell them what was happening, what is happening now and what you would like to happen with your health in the future. Health isn't just for the body, but also for the mind. I KNOW you will be blessed and encouraged when this is over!!
Let us know how it went!
Melissa

I will keep you in my prayers Tammy!

I had a great day at church and I have been trying to catch up with some sleep this weekend! I am also fighting the urge to binge.I have been binge-free for 12 days and I dont want to jeopardize it. I have an appointment with a counselor tomorrow and I am really nervous. I have even been biting my fingernails, something I havent done in a long time I dont like talking to people face to face about my probs but I gave my word to one of my wonderful friends(Nola) that I would go so there is no backing out! I just dont know what to say or do. I dont want to sound stupid and I dont want people to feel sorry for me. I just dont know what I want. I am just so confused and scared. I sound like a raving lunitic to myself. I know it will all work out. I am also worried about test results that suppose to be in on Wednesday.Please, Just keep me in your prayers everyone!

Pam- I agree with Renee. If you are not eating enough calories your body will stop losing. It will start storing those calories because it is starvation mode. There is this team called calorie cycling that may help you with this plataeu. They eat different amount of cals each day to get your metabolism going again. Hope that helps but hang in there and dont give up! Also make sure you are drinking your water. That will help also.

Hang in there. You are doing great with the exercise, but maybe your calories are a little low and you're into starvation mode... there's an article on sp about it. I think I've hit it a few times.

If not, what plan are you using? Maybe switching things up will help. Have you ever tried a low carb plan?

whatever you do, don't lose heart or stop the exercise!

I am having a hard time lately with understanding why I am not losing more weight. I don't eat over 1200 calories a day and I do my cardio and strength exercises. I have bersitis in both arms and they stay sore so I work mostly on lower body exercises. I broke my right shoulder 2 years ago and they placed pins in it and the left one has really never gotten over the fall either. I started SP a year ago in June, I weighed 244. I lost down to 214 when I was doing drugs. I have recovered from the drug use as many of you know thank the Good Lord, but now I am back at 238. The scales just won't stay down. I guess I am looking for some encouragement. Thank you all for making this a wonderful team. Pam

I will pray for you. I have been dealing with depression all my life from an abusive past. I felt unhappy for 25 years. I could not even make myself feel happy. Something happened last Saturday night. I got tired. I prayed setting right here in fromt of my computer. I prayed with all of my heart that God would take the pain and this burden ( Which I have carried for so many years) away. Instantly a wieght was lifted off of me. I feel better than I have ever felt. God forgave me and gave me the stregth to forgive the others who hurt me. The peace in my heart is so unreal. It is wonderful. I feel like a new person. Well actually I am. I am Gods child and I know I will have struggles but I also know God will help me through. The nest day I walked to the alter at church and dedicated my life to God. Tomorrow I am joining my church. Sorry for going on and on. But put all of your worries in the hands of God. He will take them away. I will pray for you because I know what you are going through dealing with depression. If you need me I am here for you!

Renee dont feel down I am here for you anytime you need me. I will be your friend. You are not alone. If you ever need to talk to someone you just Sparkmail me of post and I will be there.

And yes I have felt that way. Other then my SparkAngels I havent got many friends that are real close. I have always been afraid of being hurt. But now I am learning to reach out to others. It helps so much too. Just to have someone to talk to. Remember anytime you need me I am here! You dont have to be alone. May God bless you and your family. I think you already have one prayer answered. Now you have me!!!

Help! All I want to do is eat... eat..... and eat... some more and some more. I am trying to post so I want eat. Seems like I have been eating non-stop for the last week. Christmas just started a week long food binge for me. I have already gained 3 pounds!! Today I did try to eat better. I ate 3.5 servings, I drank 10 glasses of water. I tracked my calories for the first time since last Thursday. So I am doing better. I went over my calories still by 200. I am so full from all of the water I have drunk and I still want to eat everything in the house. It is like I am a non-stop eating machine that dont know when to quit. Then I try to not feel guilty because I know that we all have slips but goodness this is not a slip! This is a slide down a mountain!LOL I have to laugh to keep from crying!!! Oh, if anyone is out there you probably think I am a mental case!! Thanks for listening!!
Hugz!!!!!

I never had a problem with men in general.
I had no problems with men in my work environment.
But I would not let anyone in my personal life, where my emotions were involved.

I guess in a way I still respond that way to men to a certain extent. Before I had to give up my job I worked as a customer service representative. People told me on a regular basis certain men would make eyes at me. I never even noticed. I was not interested, so I never looked at them that way. I was just being friendly, and I thought they were just responding in kind ...

We sound alot alike. I did too. I also had an abusive relationship with my first Husband I met at age 15. After then was when I became really withdrawn. I would not trust anyone. I didnt want anyone to help me. I shut people out of my life because I was afraid of the hurt.I had a really bad attitude toward people especially men. I have a really wonderful DH God has sent me know. He is so wonderful to me and my children. God has truely blessed me, but still sometimes I have those crazy thoughts. That is just the devil I know! I wish you the very best in life and I am here anytime you need me!

Yes, He is always there for us as long as we don't shut him out ...

At the time, I guess I learned never to "need" people and never to "rely" on anyone but myself to get where I wanted to be. That was not the right way for me, but at the time it was the best I could do. Thankfully since then I have come a long way and met great people who warm my heart and my life.

Twanna, I think I totally understand how you feel.
My dad never was abusive, he just was never there for us and left us after we found out he had a second family.
He never took responsibility for his own mistakes, always blamed other people. When I was in my last year in College, he took me to court to ask the judge not to have to pay for my studies anymore. After that I broke with him. I told him he could keep his money since that was more important to him than me graduating. His response was to tell me that "I didn't know how much I hurt him ..."
Years later we made up, but we never really had that father-daughter bond anymore. Until his dying breath he has never acknowledged to me that he did wrong by us.

I need prayers. I just met some of my cousins and they just informed me that my fathers side of the family just had their family reunion. They said they ask him why I did not come and his response was I forgot to invite her. My father was very abusive to me and my family when I was a child. He was an alcoholic. Now he has remarried and has 3 more children and treats them great. I shouldnt let it bother me so much. He has hardly seen me over the years. But it really hurts. What did I ever do to my father to make him this way toward me? Then my hurt turns to anger. I dont want to feel this way. I know it is not right to be angry with someone but I cant let go and I feel like it is hurting my relationship with God. I dont know what to do. All I know is to pray that God will take this anger and resentment away from me that I have been hanging on to all my life. Please help!

I just came from the hospital. I visited him in ICU. His spleen is no longer bleeding. He still has a lot of fluid in his lungs. He did wake up yesterday but they had to sedate him because he was fighting so much(probably from the pain) He did wiggle his toes , fingers, etc. So seems like no brain injuries at this time. He is not breathing on his own. He still Is not out of danger. He has a long way to go. Thank you all so much for your prayers! Please continue to prayer for him and his family. A minister from my church is going to visit him today and A pastor from the hospital visited him while his mother and I were there today.May God bless you all for your kindness!
Love,
Twana

*******URGENT PRAYER REQUEST*********
One of my really good friends from schoolWade Williams) was in a serious wreck. He is in ICU. They dont know if he will make it or not. He is broken all over. One of his ribs puntured his lungs and they found out he already had pnuemonia. His spleen is also bleeding, I think. He is really bad. He was drinking and driving so he probably doesnt even know what happened. I pray that the Good Lord will pull him through and will work through me and others to help him to get his life on the right path. He is a great person. He was once a Xray Tech and lost it all to drugs and alcohol. I think God can change his life and speak through him to help others if it is his will. Also please pray for his mother(Margarete Williams) she just lost her husband(PETE WILLIAMS) a few months ago to a heart attack. Thank you so much for your prayers!God bless you all!

~~ urgent prayers & positive energy request ~~

Please direct prayers and positive energy towards Lori (Serenitynpeace). She is having major health issues. She needs all of us right now. If we combine our forces we may have a greater effect.

Thank you

Twana, I wrote you about this in the other team. I hope that you can forgive yourself and move on. That's what you told me to do, so listen to your own advice. I am crazy about you, girl.

Be the best you can be at this very moment and you'll have no regrets.

They put a turning lane on our road probably about 2 years ago because of heavy traffic.The speed limit is 35-40 MPH but most people drive 65-70. Today I was trying to get out of my road to the left when I finally got out into the turning lane,all the while keeping my eye on this little old lady in the turning lady ahead of me trying to turn to the left coming from the other way to get to her home. I finally got a break in the traffic. I STILL had on my blinker, I was going to let this lady go becouse she had been waiting so long. This man in a truck comes up behind me like a crazy person blarring on his horn and waving his arms. I completely LOST IT! I am usually a really nice going person. I love all people. I am trying to live my life right with God. Something just snapped in me. I started waving my arms and saying a few words I shouldnt have and when we got to the red light he stopped beside me I gave him the evil eye and sped off! I feel so bad. Usually I will pray for someone who acts that way.I just dont know what happened to me. Ive asked God for his forgiveness. I guess with me being down and not being able to do anything that made me just snap. Anyway I just feel better that I confessed to someone. Thanks so much for listening! Hey this is the first time I am confessing and It is not about food and bingeing!

Hey ladies! I know I am new here but if you will please keep me in your prayers. I need to be espesially strong for the next 2 weeks. The doc has said no exercise for 1 week and take it easy for the next week. I am worried that I will fall into my old eating habits not being able to exercise and do much like I usually do. I am doing good so far. I am trying really hard. I also want to Thank God for all he has done for me. I want to praise him for all he has done for me and for my family. Thank yall so much!

Lynn,

We have all been there, so don't be hard on yourself.
The body is adaptable and will stabilize once you keep some consistency going.
Make sure you are eating at least the minimum on your Spark diet to avoid starvation. Good wishes to you!

Lynn..since you did everything right remember that it may take a week to show up..beating yourself up is sort of like worrying..it never solved a thing..if you have eaten properly, drank all the water..then you may have eaten too little..perhaps your body thinks you are starving...wait another week..have faith and let us know next week..Hugs

How do you keep from emotionally beating yourself up after a backslide? I had a 6oz gain with my weigh-in today and I am really struggling with myself about it. I have been extra careful this week to only eat the right foods and I gained. The only reasoning I can find is I am on a 1200 - 1500 calorie diet and most of the week I ate between 900 - 1000 calories.
