Nocturnal Light by Melanie R. #ChronicIllness #ChronicPain #MitochondrialDisease #IrritableBowelSyndromeIBS #CheerMeOn #MoreDiseases #InsideTheMighty

Nocturnal Light

I was the school spelling bee champion in my 8th grade class. I can remember the ambivalence of walking up to the microphone; looking out into the crowd. Only squinting above the sea of silhouettes, as the stage lights were blinding.
It was down to myself, and one student.
The assembly room was silent except for my quivering nerves, and best classmates whispering cheers in the front row.
Nocturnal was my winning word!
Nocturnal?…meaning darkness?
Confusion…? How was this my word?
It would all become crystal clear, and quite a life theme through the pitch black reality of chronic pain/rare chronic illness.
A weighted stone tossed off the cliff in the nocturnal abyss which is actuality of chronic pain/illness. Splash! It will never reach the bottom.

My prize for winning the spelling bee?
A dictionary. A book of words and meaning. A gift of words!

“Nocturnal…N-o-c-t-u-r-n-a-l”…
A holy transformation from nocturnal darkness into His everlasting light.

It was Heavenly Father foreshadowing my predestination, and ultimate full spiritual restoration. I would persevere nocturnal darkness enduring chronic pain; but I would indeed find true meaning in His Holy Book.
Many eyes, on earth, and in the heavens; witnessing my true living testament for which I have become very thankful for!
My true reward and fulfillment of light!
Receive The Light Jesus came to bring for all of us! All praises to The Most High illuminating our way!

The sharpest pain
will overcome;
The darkest night,
The Rising Son.

Strewn bright across
nocturnal nights,
A torching dawn
of glowing Might!

He brought me forth across the stage,
and spelled it out,
a glorious praise!

Job 12:22
He uncovers the deep out of the darkness, and brings deep darkness to light.

John 8:12
Again, Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world., Whoever follows me, will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.
Psalm 112:4
Light dawns in the darkness for the upright; He is glorious, merciful and right.

What pisses me off... #Autism #MentalHealth

Whats been on my mind...recently there has been another case of measles and that disease alone can kill a child. So you have the uneducated people who blame the MMR shot is the cause of autism. There has been many studies done that prove that the vaccination doesn’t cause it. So the mother’s who don’t vaccinate their kids believe that the worse thing that could happen to their child is possibly getting autism. Um here’s a crazy idea .. what is worse all the children dying because of not being vaccinated which was 500 and some or a your child being alive... #CheckInWithMe #Depression #Anxiety #Education #MentalHealth #MoreDiseases #ADHD

Pretty weird but kinda real

I always think humans , animals +anything in earth is just a copy of the other
things just repeating it self over and over ,it never changes ,cant get why is it this way , for example if ur struggling it is someone’s time to be in luck if its ur time it’s someone’s shitty days as well as ur mental health if u feel great someone’s having hard times we’re all the exact same ,
changes moving in turns between us u cannot stop it cause its not ur turn yet , when the turn comes u’ll go to another changing nothing is really your choice .
It doesn’t make since it is boring and if u keep thinking about it u might go crazy
u can not discover the reason behind that ur not going to change the turns cuz you are under one of the turns while ur doing it ! and when u go crazy u’ll be one of the ppl who got crazy trying to explain something natural.?
