    A repeating quote in my recent priesthood Blessings which lately I've been requiring every day, I have been told by a merciful Heavenly Father⬇️⬇️

    Allow your mind and body to work together. My anxieties have just hiked up crazily lately because of extra pain and health issues and all my doctors abandoning me because they don't know how to help me anymore they say. This medication my rheumatologist put me on even though I did not want to be on it and kept begging for the past 4 months to get off of it now that he has ditched me I have to taper off on my own. Luckily for him I have done this by myself before. Part of the side effects that seriously ruined my quality of life what little I had cause me to hallucinate scarily awake and asleep. So heavenly father is telling me to trust my mind and Trust rationalizing that what I see can't be real. Allowing my mind to comfort my body so I can work with my body to ignore any Sensations that come along with my hallucinations. This daily devotional fits with where I am at now in using that information to improve my life.

    For any of you who don't know or don't know what I'm talking about I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We know that God still performs miracles and we can use the priesthood to get blessings to heal the sick and to offer words of comfort. Only members given the Melchizedek priesthood personally ser apart, can give these blessings. The words they say are not a memorized prayer they are told to them through the spirit and through the priesthood so that they can give voice allowed to the words from God.

    Perfect words and phrases that the giver of the blessing wouldn't know to use are communicated during this blessing. Things only God would know to give comfort are said. These priesthood blessings are the only things that have kept me going throughout all my years of life. They help guide, protect, and support me though my personal and unusual life requires me to not be healed of all my pain, I am regardless still given strength to handle all my pains and many many health issues, as well as aiding me in getting this medication out of my system, lessening the horrible side effects so I can continue to do God's will.
    These blessings perform incredible Miracles that provide relief, comfort, advice, sometimes admonishments and warnings, and answers to all prayers you have offered up to that point. They are available to any members and non-members in need but they must be given by members of the church with permission.

    Here is the devotional today from one of the Christian books I recently found to use along with a few other 365 day devotionals from those of my faith. I am not sure what this authors religionis but I do know it is Christian faith based and has a great emphasis on our relationship to God and our Savior. My previous post an hour ago contains a link to where to find this book for yourself if you would like.

    Trying to leave replys to others articles .

    Alot of times I try and respond to an article and it's just a revolving door of trying to leave a reply . It seems to be the Doctor from Denmark or around there .
    I have Bpd, C-ptsd , Mdd and S.a.d for mental health, CRPS , NASH and Fibromyalgia.
    I was trying to reply to the lady with c-ptsd that was afraid of losing her job .
    I've used your website for many years and have also given this page to my case manager and shrinks for others.
    At this time I'm thinking about not wasting time and deleting this site .

    Be the right person for yourself

    It’s so easy to place the opinions of others higher than those we have of ourselves. This brings us so much pain. How can we prioritize self-love first?

    ~ Thanks to all. Thanks for all. ~

    Speaking of thanks for all, I was hoping we could acknowledge everyone who comments below. I know it seems like a small gesture, but many people here have never opened up to anyone before and being open and honest with strangers can be quite scary. So, if we could show our gratitude by giving their comment a simple reply or heart, I’m sure they would really appreciate your team support. What do you say?

    I know having a body that isn't considered perfectly normal can make your confidence waver.

    I use to have untouchable confidence. Then I gained weight from Hypothyroidism and suddenly I wasn't shaped perfectly like before, my pain got worse and my body turned into a fluffy blob as I fondly think of myself-no sarcasm.
    It is HARD to rise your confidence but first you must do something to help you see yourself in a better light. It is not others views that shape you but it is what and who you give that power to that has control.

    Take it back! Dress fancy for no reason, do your hair fancily, exercise a bit or eat a Lil bit more health consciously. Put on a little bit of makeup, get a nice haircut.
    You have far more power than the world wants you to know.

    Next You must stop negative talk! Every time you think or say something negative about you or your body you must then say three things that you love about yourself or three things that you like about yourself or three things that you admire or the other people have admired about you. For everyone negative thing you must say three positive things. I also write uplifting quotes on my mirrors and dry erase marker. It's amazing what something that you don't think twice about can have such an effect on how you consider yourself.

    You, my dear Mighty friend, are a Work of Art!
    Say that out loud! YOU Are a Work Of Art!

    And that is NOT contingent on your health 💕💕💕

    Unstoppable Courage: Our Battle With Chronic Pain

    The most amazing thing I see in myself and others with chronic pain like CRPS is our courage to do all we do, knowing the firestorm of relentless pain and suffering that awaits us day in and day out.

    Yet, we still get up every morning, tip our cap to the hellish pain and despair that awaits, and accomplish all we can; we put on a brave face and struggle with a smile everywhere we go. We still ask ourselves if going out tonight is worth the few days it will take to recover. But to feel normal, if only for one night, is worth the price of admission.

    While most are scared to fail, crippled by it even, we march on, failing hundreds of times for every accomplishment we can muster. Yet, here we are, continually beating ourselves up for all the things we can't/ failed to do and not patting ourselves on the back for the courage it takes to do what we do.

    Instead of seeing the beauty and scarcity that kind of courage requires, all we see is our inadequacy. So, we strive for perfection constantly in our lives, not because we want to be but because we feel like anything less is admitting we are flawed. Flawed by something we don't understand, flawed by something we didn't cause nor ask for, yet flawed non-less.

    We're tired of feeling inadequate, judged, doubted, and misunderstood; I know I am. And want to be seen for who we are and aspire to be, not what we suffer from.

    Although we can only acknowledge our true strength, endless courage, and untapped potential when we realize, accept, and move past the illusions we hold. There is a purpose in our pain; let's identify it and help one another realize its potential together.
