When a little rain must fall...

Friday, February 21, 2014

Everyone pretty much knows about my ongoing back issues. Earlier this week I thought I was getting better. I was excited that I could finally start trying to get fitness back into my life. Well, today I woke up screaming in pain out of my sleep. I could not even move. It was frightening. I just laid there and finally I could move but I felt stiff and in pain. Last week the dr gave me trigger point injections in my neck and back to relieve the pain. I was trying to hold out getting another injection until I had to do physical therapy Friday. I guess my body protested. My son drove me to the clinic. I could not even hold my purse. I checked in and waited. As soon as the nurse called my name I got up and walked to the door. She said "Honey, you look miserable". She didnt even finish the sentence when I just started bawling! I said "I am". I surprised myself that I got that upset. I was really embarrassed because people in the clinic looked at me. I am just tired of being in pain. I am going to have an MRI in a few days. Hopefully, Some questions will be answered.

Honestly, the only thing that really gives me comfort is God. It is funny how keeping your eyes on him will make even the toughest things become more bearable. I am thankful for my Savior that he is with me everyday of my life and my family. I love them. They are so sweet to me. I am also thankful to my Sparkfriends. You all give me the motivation to go on and now I have even more motivation because I want to get healthy and get this weight off my back literally!

I do not ask this often but please pray for me. If praying is not your bag can you send a nice little thought or 2 my way? Either way I am grateful. A little rain fell today but after the rain comes rainbows. Or something like that...

    To my dear, sweet sisters in Christ-

    Thank you for your kind words and prayers. My back is better. The drs are unsure what is going on and why I have so much pain. I know who my Savior is . He is Jesus Christ and I know that I am going to be healed. Thanks again.

    I'm so sorry you are having such pain. I know I can't make you feel better, but I hope you know that you are loved and prayed for, and thought of often. One of my prayers for you is that your medical team finds a solution that allows you to more fully live your life without pain. Another prayer is that God's healing power flood your body and you experience radical healing!
