Lost my job

Finally found a job I could do, even on a "bad" day. It was basically seasonal. I was told by my coworkers what good job I was doing, and how I "fit in". My Supervisor even gave me a come back date.
Her Supervisor posted my job, I had to interview again, the whole thing, only for the big boss to choose someone else. 😞 So here I am without a job, without a family (they're either deceased, moved away, or have nothing to do with me bc I'm worthless to them) Thank God for my husband of 35+ years! But I just don't know what to do haven't found a job I can do. I guess I'm feeling sorry for myself. Thanks for being here if you've read my boo hoo this far.
Hope your day is good! #Fibromyalgia #ChronicFatigue #HypothyroidismUnderactiveThyroidDisease #DegenerativeDiscDisease

Reactions by Melanie R.

Reactions, Reactions.
Pulsed like contractions.
Not just the pain,
I’ve been through it;
in my body now all of these years.

Just then it hit me.
Wild fire and crippling.
Felt the burn as I waited,
and prayed in the dark suffering.
As My savior led the way,
because reactions were made.

Can’t hold it back now; not the same.
Don’t feel right being this way.
Passed through old familiar strains.
Flooded fields, fluttered gates.
Did my body betray?,
While reactions were made?

Should’ve known it was coming,
Pointed straight to my trusting.
Would’ve loved this to heal me,
and soul-fire fill me;
but reactions-
were no over-reaction.

As it raced through my veins;
He saved me from hurt,
and the poisoning flame.
Rescued out of that day-
because reactions were made.

There He shared in the low,
Shook it off-
He’s in control.
All my asking He Knows-
My reaction through pain.

Started from a reaction,
New life put me in action-
I am healed through His Name!

I'm new here!

Hi, my name is ReedtamS. I'm here because I want to learn more about my diseases and conditions. Like many people with rare diseases, I accumulated over 30 diagnoses before I was diagnosed with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, and a few more since then. Along with all of those diagnoses are the medications to treat them. I take over 35 medications every day. I am trying to live my best life, and educate myself so that I can advocate for myself.

My whole life is evidence of this and trust me, I have not had any easiness in life.

My mom asked me 10yrs ago if I felt peace ever since I had had constant pain for 7 years and severe pain my whole life.

I was able to answer with a resounding YES!

Thanks to gospel daily studies, they were the Only thing that helped me control my pain and the anger that comes from being in pain.
When all meds and doctors failed, a but if scripture or hours long study sessions both made my pain into something I could ignore on a big level.

My whole life has benefited so so much all thanks to time set aside for me and our merciful father in heaven to catch up with each other.

I am so indebted to my parents raising me as a Latter-day Saint. ❤️❤️❤️✨️✨️✨️

Such a priceless gift.

💪🏼💪🏼Too true!

I use to resent having to keep going and yes while life can be extremely hard especially being bedbound, I have been able to use my knowledge and experience to help many others. Finding optimism in every seemingly bad thing can be a challenge but we don't get better with no practice 😉

Things may seem like the darkest depths. But no amount of darkness can put out a small candle.

A small flicker of hope can sustain. I am living proof of that.

29 years of pain, 17 of constant pain so severe death would seem a blessing if I hadn't experience first hand the dearth and sadness suicide leaves behind.

Death may seem a blessing but we only get this one life and time doesn't have to be wasted as we wait for answers to our health or treatments or a cure. Or, in my case, a good knowledgeable doctor who wants the best for their patients.
It took me hundreds of doctors to find these three meant for me at last and I know a time will come when they will retire and I must find another good one.

Life has more sunshine to warm you than you can ever know until you live it. I have found more joy in the last year than I have thought possible. A long time coming but all the sweeter. Life is a GIFT.

No matter what, we go on!
