Colleen,

I hate to hear what you've been experiencing. I have fibro but it was a Psychiatrist who listened and gave me medication to help.

I am not suggesting any drug; just telling you what I took that helped me. I have taken Neurontin (a very old drug) for over 12 years and cannot imagine my life without it. It specifically works with over-sensitive nerves and chronic pain like fibromyalgia. It is not narcotic and has caused no side effects for me.

I am virtually pain free now.


Father, take Colleen to the place she needs to find help for her chronic pain. I ask that you heal her body totally, Lord. But I know that fibro can be a progressive healing too. But give her the relief she needs so that she can live without the pain. Give her all your love and guidance and support, Lord. Make her well again. In Jesus name, amen.

Love

You've made some interesting points. My life experiences certainly have been learning experiences. I truly believe that when trauma comes along I can let it destroy me or I can grow from it and be open to why God allows this in my life. Some times the answers don't come quickly or fully but I've seen God's mighty work in my life with other difficulties and I know He's there and cares. I don't think God heaps junk on us but we are living in a fallen world and that creates problems. One of the things I learned is that we don't have to be on our own. I'm sure you guys can understand that some times it's a matter of finding the right people to talk to.

This discussion reminds me of something a friend said to me before I moved. She said that maybe God is asking me to move not just because He wants me to grow but so He can use me to help other people. This comment really opened my eyes. Up to that point I never thought of myself as a 'missionary'. At this point in my life I think all christians in one way or another are missionaries. I think people look at the lives of christians both other christians and the unsaved. No offense intended to any one but I know my church has it's struggles and at times it feels like I'm in the mission field. I guess it depends how you define missionary. Actually, I think it works both ways. I grow alongside the others in my life.

Thanks to all of you. Discussing things helps put life into perspective. Have a very terrific day!

ps. thanks for caring and praying.... back at ya' guys

Prayer Please pray

I am tired out and in pain and it just so happens there is lot of stressful stuff happening I don't have the energy to deal with. Right now I feel rather let down by a fellow christian. As we talked about people can be unaware and hurtful. I'm coming to you all to ask for prayer in dealing with people and big feelings and making decisions honorable to God. I'm glad we've been discussing the fact that God is here for us and caring because right now I'm needing to remind myself of that over and over and over again. God bless; take care. Your Friend in Christ.

Vespasia, I get your prof's joke by the way. Your prof seems to get the irony of these illnesses. I hope you've been managing okay and that your studies are going well. There is always work to do when you're a student.

Take care of yourselves. Talk to all of ya later.

I am a mature student juggling a couple of degrees - one of which is a ministerial theological degree whilst the other ties in with working with stat' services in community outreach.

I really do hold a church office and serve in leadership- hence my signature. With God nothing is impossible even when it seems improbable. Certainly most have no idea just how severe the problems I have are.
I find the disciple of a religious life under order helps in setting a work rest and pray lifestyle though.

Prayer Sorry for the delay.

Vespasia, good to hear from you even though I know you are very busy. Yes, prayer and rest does help. That`s basically what I`ve been doing these past two days along with spending a bit of time with a friend. Sorry for not posting sooner.

I don`t tend to pray very long but I pray often. Many times it feels like my day is one long prayer. It`s good to know God is near and with us wherever we go. I find it comforting He wants me to go to Him in truth. It`s rather refreshing there is no pretense with God. He loves me despite my fallibility and I can go to Him and share this and the rest of it.

I spent time today talking about theology with someone who works at a Bible school. It was good just to hash things out in an honest way. This was the first time I spook to this particular fellow. I`m glad I took the chance. At times I`m never quite certain what attitudes I will encounter. I`m a thinker and not everyone likes hashing things out.

Love pain has been better

The pain in both respects has gotten better. The physical pain and the emotional hurt I felt in regards to my fellow christian. Thanks for praying and letting me share. I hope you all are doing okay. Hang in there God does love us. One of my favorite verses is, Psalm 34:5 Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.

p.s. I`ve been praying for you all.

I had quite a bit of pain today and something stressful to do but came out of it all smiling and feeling peace. So I consider this great.

What price for peace and joy I ask...what I wouldn't give for those. Snowed here so much my jeep got high centered in the road and had to dig it out just to get it back in the drive...blew snow until I was at the ragged edge. I still have neighbors who refuse to help clear the access road that serves them...and they say they love the lord. It is still a struggle for me to love and forgive them and it stands in the way of my peace and joy. I really get bummed when I here from others like us Colleen that are hammered by the body...still in my prayers, thanks for yours.

I'm glad to hear from you. I was quite ill on Friday afternoon so I needed to rest quite and bit and something stressful came up on Saturday. I've had a full two days. I know what you mean. We are dealing with so much stuff, like physical pain every day, and then on top of that it seems other people can be difficult and create unnecessary stress. I think it's especially difficult when other christians are hurtful. God accepts a wide range of people into 'the fold' but not everyone seems to understand certain things. Believe me I am having trouble with this issue. I'll continue to pray, even if difficult people don't change maybe you'll be able to find some peace and comfort.

p.s. thanks for your honesty; take care
