A verse or two to encourage us. # fibromyalgia #polymyalgia rheumatica #Asthma #Arthritis #Migraine #macular degeneration

Psalm 126:5,6
Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy, he who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
This sounds to me , like someday there will be a harvest because of our suffering.

My dear husband has been I’ll for sometime and has lost about 45 pounds. Initially , the doctor thought it must be cancer. All cancer has been ruled out. We have a test to do that will hopefully confirm that he has a rare disease, Achalasia. Damaged nerves in the esophagus cause paralysis in the esophagus as well as the valve between the esophagus and stomach not to open. This food doesn’t get into the stomach consistently causing weight loss. Surgery and medication can alleviate the problem by releasing or relaxing the LES I would ask for your prayers as we navigate an unfamiliar road. It would be wonderful if he could eat again. This is an incurable disease that is fatal without treatment.

Dear fellas, you may wonder why I don’t respond or block you. If you tell me you are so lonely and want to know where I live, I ditch you. Red flag!! Tell me a bit about yourself- what is your chronic condition? How did you select me to DM? Don’t just assume I’m interested for the sake of being interested. I’m here to support others, be supported by others, share information and sometimes even laugh. Instead of telling me you’ve read my profile, maybe reference some comment I’ve made that intrigued you. This is not a dating website; it’s a supportive network of people helping people. Thank you for letting me spout off.

Something beautiful # fibromyalgia #polymyalgia rheumatica #Asthma #Migraines #Arthritis #macular degeneration

Remembered a chorus I learned at church many years ago. Maybe the words will encourage someone
“Something beautiful, something good
All my confusion
He understood
All I had to offer Him
Was brokenness and shame (strife)
But He made something beautiful out of my life.
