So, I have a pain in the tooth I had to have filled. And I'm really hoping it's not infected. I don't want to deal with antibiotics. And I'm also having persistant sore throats and pain in my ear and jaw and it's all on the side where the tooth was filled. Please pray for me. I'm weary and scared.

My public apologies to JDM 1984, I had expressed to her the abused that I suffered in the hands of organized religion specifically evangelical Christians,

there are many cases of documented abused in the Catholic church by priest  and are now in litigation and even the Pope himself has written letters apologizing from the sexual abuse commited against the victims

there are goood and bad apples, if I have a faith that collapses it is because of the abused I suffered, my anger comes from God allowing it and being defendless as result of my psychosis

I question God and his motives for such a terrible abuse and pain, My psycotherapist emphasis the need fo forive and forget but with all the dreadful side effects of these drugs is very hard,

I have done positive things for others,  I rescued  homeless people placed them in shelters, when I ministered last year I brought to Christ 40 people, fed the homeless

work with autistic children as a volunteer but the amount of damage done to my life is horrible I am mentally sane just diagnoside with major depression I am not squizofrenic or bipolar but the damage done to me by organizaed religion is terrible please forgive me JD for sharing my horrific story on the hands of Christians

Men can do great evil to others we know that look what they did to Jesus.  

Yet we cannot go on basing our lives on the past but must reach out to the future.  I am sure you have learned some things in your life and all experience comes to serve us in one way or another.  As you have suffered I am sure others have suffered too... one day when you are healed of this pain perhaps you will minister to them to help their healing.  I wonder if there are any now who have healed from the pain you have who could show you the way to work through your problem. I bet there are as it says "No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful"  whatever you have suffered there are others who have been there to.  

 

I hope you find them and they help you. 

peace

Thank you!! It comes and goes. So, I'm hoping it's just withdrawal and not anything wrong with the filling. I Have tooth pain a lot anyways...I think from the Ativan. It's pretty common in WD. Btdt....You always make me smile. :) you have such a sweet spirit. I will pop over to your thread tmm. I've been obsessively googling stuff, which has drawn my attention away from SA for a couple of days. I can't say that is a bad thing. Lol I wish I could get off the internet...period. But, I'm sure it will come in time. Thx for the prayer lady!

Be it reactions or whatever it is that keeps my falling down... immune ... inflammatory.. it seems a long and varied list so much so I keep thinking I am missing some very small thing that is obvious to a good mind yet mine has missed so I need to work harder find it ...implement it and finally be done with this... 

yet here I am again. 

When you see my thread you will find some of what I am found while looking a Doc in Texas .. seems interesting but you never know.

Please pray for me.  I don't know how to accept, to live with, what I am experiencing.  It is inhuman and I know of no one else who has had anything like this.  I do believe that God has shown me that He will bring me out of this, but I don't know how to live in it.  I don't.  The only thing that is keeping me here is my husband here with me 24/7 and the need to not hurt my children. 

 

I need desperately for someone to tell me how to live like this, with everything so close to me and continuing to get closer.  The unreality, the insanity, the DR and DP continue to increase.  I am living in an LSD world that deepens every other day.  I have no inner sense of myself , so sense of being here, no sense of Gary or anyone else.  My brain feels as tho it has receeded into my skull to such an extent that I am being slowly buried alive. 

 

I know with all my heart that God can keep me.  But I don't know how to reach Him to keep me safe from my own desperate need to get out of my brain. I feel like the people on 9/11 who jumped out of windows of the burning building, knowing they were jumping to their deaths but unable to stay in with the fire at their backs.  I am at that place.

Praying for you now, SL, as I do every day. I pray for everyone here every day--but how is it I am just now seeing this particular thread for the first time? Perhaps God led me to it. I was looking for something that I had seen on here before, and stumbled upon this thread.

 

I do believe that God answers prayer, but not necessarily exactly when we want Him to, or the way we want Him to. I believe God's timing is perfect, and that He has a perfect plan as well, but sometimes it is difficult for us to see that. Especially when going through something as traumatic as WD, we are left wondering how in the world such suffering could possibly be part of God's plan. Prayers for all.

time for a rest... if you do relaxation therapy do some now... if you find nature helps go there... sleep then go to sleep... whatever you have found that soothes you it is time for it... I know sometimes when we are in a state we resist the thing tools we have found that work... I don't know why that is but I know it to be true of me...

I have also learned it is a mistake...

 

Go to the tools that work for you and use them... 

yes praying is in a way a  tool... I do that too.. for everyone here every day. We need it...but we need our tools too.  

Please go over your list of what works choose something that will get you over the hump...if you have not done it yet make a small list of things to do when this state comes.. as sometimes it is hard to know what to do and having a list is a good resource. He is with you in this when you wrote this message he was right there... God is not gone from you... I think it was JD who said sometimes her prayers are as simple as this "help" he hears them all. 

I wish you peace

btdt, thank you for your wisdom here. 

 

I have had tools in the past but this thing is progressing at such a fast rate, is worsening so quickly, that there is no toolbox for it other than to surrender to God.  I do try to read and reread encouragements that others have written but since I know of no one else with my history and reactions, I can't know anything about how this will resolve.

 

Petunia had written to me awhile back to live in each moment only, that God has given us the strength to do that.  I'm believing that now because each moment is excruciating and if I think at all about what's coming, I become completely undone. 

 

Right now I alternate between playing computer games and coming here.  And pacing when the akathisia is bad.  I will have to surrender my future to God and that breaks my heart as I had so much I had wanted to do before I go Home. 

 

I will have to keep praying over and over, YOUR will be done in my life as my life belongs to you.

I'm so sorry that I didn't see this before.  Its so frightening to have pain that you don't know where its coming from.  Gary and I are praying that you won't have to go to the dentist or at least that you won't have to take a/b's.    Oh Lord God, bring healing and peace.

I need prayer. I am having symptoms that are consistent (for me) with a paradoxical reaction--increased insomnia, headache, and increased akathisia and other symptoms. The only thing I can figure is that my magnesium spray oil bottle suddenly decided on its own to become unclogged a few days ago, and I am probably getting about twice the amount per spray that I was getting. Not that much, but I have proved sensitive in the past, and have been increasing gradually (successfully). I think this has probably put me over the edge. If it's not the mag. oil, I don't know what it is.

Am praying right now.  Oh Lord God.  We need You and Your power.  Only You can see what is happening in our brains.  Please calm down our systems. 

 

I had a horrible reaction to a magnesium lotion.  This probably is a reaction to the unintentional increase in the oil.  Do you want to just stop it for now and see how things go?  I am so so so sorry that you have at this extreme again.

Lord,

We are all confused, weary, beaten down, and in so much pain. I don't know what to pray anymore. I ask for peace. I pray that You guide Luv, give her Your strength. I pray the pain end as soon as possible. Be with her.

 

In the name of Your Son

 

Amen.

Thanks, JDM and SL. SL, my thoughts right now are just to cut back to one spray 3 times a day. I went through this before and had to cut back, but it wasn't as severe. Since then, I have been adding one spray a day at the rate of every week or two, and have been doing fine. I have a purse-sized sprayer, and I didn't even know it was clogged until it started putting out about twice as much. I should have backed off, but I got by with it for a few days, and I think I was hoping it would continue. The nagging headache and insomnia should have been warning signs to me :( I'm afraid if I stop completely I won't be able to use it at all, and I need that magnesium.

I try to recall this to my mind when I am spiraling inside my broken brain. Hopefully the attached image will come through, which I like as well, and goes along with the passage.

 

"Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.  And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows." Matthew 10:29-31

But. It is the truth, even if I can't feel it.

I love the cartoon.  How wonderful.  His eye is always on us.   I love that song too.   I loved watching Ethel Waters sing it in the movie , "A Member of the Wedding" -- I feel so lost and invisible and it is so comforting to know that HE knows where I am and is always with me.

sunset_blues-1487608-300x187.jpgSoak in this portrait of your heavenly Father.

Your Father is perfectly faithful.

Deuteronomy 31:8   “The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

Your Father is a generous provider.

Matthew 7:11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!

Your Father is loving and compassionate.

John 17:23 (Jesus speaking to His Father) “You have loved them even as you have loved me.

Psalm 103:13 As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him.

Your Father is forgiving and accepting.

Psalm 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

Your Father is a patient teacher.

Isaiah 30:20-21  Your eyes will behold your Teacher. Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left. (NASB)

Your Father is an understanding counselor.

Isaiah 9:6 He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Your Father is a wise communicator.

James 1:5  If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

James 3:17 The wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.

Your Father gives good gifts.

James 1:17  Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

Your Father is attentive to your needs.

Matthew 6:26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Your Father is strong yet personal.

Isaiah 40:26 He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing

Matthew 10:30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

And so much more. He is more wonderful than our mind can comprehend. He is there, even if we feel that He has left or that He ought to leave, and even when we turn our backs on Him. Our Father is love, pure love, and He does not change.

Thanks for the reminders--all of them--so comforting. I just don't know how I would be able to get through all this without Him. I know y'all feel the same way. Our prayers for ourselves and EACH OTHER are getting us through this--day by day. Each day, we are one day closer to having this behind us. I know some days it doesn't seem like it, but it's true. I'm thankful for His mercy--and for all of you!

This song is beautiful and it is hard to hear, but I believe it is the truth. This situation is not meaningless. And, that even if I don't feel it, He is enough for me. I try to believe this everyday. It is so hard. This journey has broken my heart. But, maybe breaking is not always a bad thing.
