I made this post on another thread but want to copy it here as it is where I wanted to put it in the first place but it seemed to fit some place else... I want people to read this book if they can tho I have not read it yet it may help...so putting it here to as it speaks to a talk I had with God yesterday... sometimes being obedient is what is needed... or just opening the lines of communication... :)

 

 

There is a new book out by the same author of the book you mention above... it is apparently the next step in the equation... titled 

 

The Brain's Way of Healing.... 

by 

Norman Doidge MD 

 

I bought it yesterday when I was at the mall buying my vit E... I ended up in the book store and thought the last thing I want is a book I can't read... had a talk to God while I was in there... I know this may seem strange to many but this is how I live my life for a long time now.... 

 

I was wandering... and said to God what is this... is this my brain failing again or do you have a plan in here... I don't like shopping anyway not anymore... it was a cranky talk to God.... show me cause I am leaving....

 

bam right to this book... 

 

I did not want to spend any money either... I did not want a book... I thought I would just look inside for a minute... found something thought I would look it up on line later...but know i can't remember anything would have forgot it before I got out of the building... 

it was 40% off... 

I could not find a price on it though I did not look too hard as I was too impatient and needed a nap... 

Said to myself if it is under 20 bucks I will buy it... 

at the counter the girl said it was 20.30...ok I said but it came to 22 something still I have it ... and may make some use of it yet...

 

It says what we know that the brain is fed by light sound ect... and our brains can use all these things to heal itself. Music vibration sound meditation movement there is a list I do encourage others to buy this book if your going to read anyway why not something that may help your healing... get it now while it is on sale ... if it helps it is a steal at that price. 

 

I thought of the library too ... could be there but I think this is one I will use a  lot so it is worth having... 

I will share what I find as I am able. 

peace all

I have not been able to do much with that book either I have looked in the back for a couple of things I found here that were there... posted one I think.  It may or may not be really helpful certainly won't till I can read it.  

Still they are learning new things all the time about brain and pain so there is hope :) in that. 

 

That song is PERFECT!!!!!!!

Thanks and peace to you

Please pray for me as I am having an anxiety attack that won't stop. I am just not Doing well. The much dreaded anxiety is upon me. Usually it dispels by mid morning and isn't this dramatic. I took some of my antihistamine which knocks it back a bit but it keeps surging back. Little things are triggering it like a sad image on Facebook or reading other's stories on here, negative thoughts, stressors of any sort. Last time it was like this was a bit over two years ago and I ended up in the ER. Actually feeing panicky about sleeping tonight too. Not able to take as much antihistamine as I need as I have to drive my girls and be alert to be mom today. Driving daughter to airport soon. Dreading DH's midnight airport pick up as it will destroy my night even further. At this point, any task or decision is getting an adrenaline surge. Pray for me.

Will pray for you.  I'm so sorry that you're having such a rough time.  I would have anxiety too just doing what you are today.  Hoping and praying that things settle for you soon.

Oh I am having tears of joy as I just found this thread now in the middle of the night.

It did always broke my heart that I could not communicate with other Christians going through withdrawal. I've been on this forum for some months now.

In the last few days things went so bad for me that I was literally begging God to take me home. I arrived at a point where it seemed like there is no reason to go on here. Only thing that still made me go on was that my precious parents possibly could not handle me die in this way.

Then I also realized maybe there is another reason like if God would heal me I could make war againts these drugs and protect a lot of people and possibly help some get off....

 

I was also thinking of making a blog pr something directly for christians. Then searching in google I found a thread of JDM on another forum. ( I love you for that!!!) and now this thread!!

 

Guys you will not believe how huge Godsend this is for me!!! Finally a little community that understands me in every way and where I can also contribute. Oh I can't wait for that!!

 

I love you my fellow deeply suffering saints!!!

Hey there!! JDM is me. :) now Wildflower. I changed my name.

 

I'm so happy you made your way here! We are all seemingly in a pit at the moment. Most of us are having a rough rough ride. But we are here for each other.

 

There are a number of us here.

Yes, I've been on SA since October, and I just discovered this thread a short time ago as well. We sort of have a "prayer circle" going on each other's threads anyway, and I tend to forget this is here until I see a notification. Always praying for everyone on this site!!

Dear everyone

 

I am still in the excitement and euphoria of the last night when I found the thread and did have tears of joy and thankfulness for hours. I do hope this will remain to some degree, so I was thinking that since I have a fairly good day today that I will tell some things about myself (since I only talk about technical stuff in my introduction thread without going to personal)

 

And I would also ask you to pray for me because I need it so desperately, more than ever.

 

As I already told you I can say that I found this thread just when I was literally was unable to hold on any more. It has been 9 months since my cold turkey of three drugs at the same time (!!) Things went crazy and out of control more and more. Now I am at a place where my life almost totally fell apart. All the things that used to give meaning and the will to go on was basically taken away and I think I arrived at a point again where i basically "lost my will to fight" to use the line from that song that JDM posted not long ago which is a VERY personal and precious to me for years now (Tenth Avenue North - Worn)

 

Probably part of my thankfulness and joy is that I finally found some sort of Christian community again where I can share things and really feel that I am understood. It has been around 6 months since I have been to church or any christian group. Because of the panik attacks and just the fear of people.  For me, who was very social and active in multiple groups (including youth groups) this is devastating. Not to mention that I could not attend my classes at university (seminary) 

 

And I arrived at a point where I can almost never go out of my home, because I am so sensitive to noises and stimulations. And I could not do any of my former activites almost at all, besides reading and listening to music and singing sometimes. And it is very hard to even pray a lot of times not to mention communicate with family and friends. 

 

Of course there are things to be thankful for like my precious and amazing family and some loyal friends who did not left me. They do love me, care for me, pray for me, support me. I can basically say that they keep me alive and they are THE ONLY reason I am still fighting to survive.

 

But even like this in the last few weeks I was suffering so greatly that I arrived at a point where I said to God many times: please have mercy and heal me at least partly because if not I cannot go on like this. I became totally insane and useless to everything and everyone and it is hard to see how all this can bring You glory. Please then take me to Yourself where there is "no more sorrow no more pain" Some days ago I was literally thinking about what things should I write in my goodbye letter, so it can be read as a lesson publicly soon, if or when i die in this crazy sickness. I also started preparing my family and some friends and almost saying goodbye.  

 

I don't know if you were ever at this point. I think you still understand. When you are literally crying so hard for so long and closing your eyes while lying on the bed....and just never wanting to open it again. Not here on this planet.

 

Of course in these moments God seems to comfort me and press something on my mind in an unusual way. When you finally understand a truth, a bible verse, a line from a song in astronomically new dimensions. And this gives some hope to go on a bit more. 

I verse like this that now comes to my mind again is where Paul talks about his sufferings and concludes that 

"I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far; but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body." (Phil 1:23-24)

 

This verse is what saved my life some time ago, and it is still keeps me going. Yesterday night I was feeling that finding this group extended the group of people fro whom I am still fighting to survive.

Because we just need each other so badly.....

 

It also reminds me of another verse where Paul says that we should carry each others burdens. This truth has amazing implications for me. I will share this in another post soon.

 

So please keep me in my prayers. I know the enemy and my sickness wants to destroy this new hope. I do not want to let that happen. But I am too weak on my own. I loose heart very quickly. I do need all of your prayers to use as a weapon and a shield.

 

I am very grateful for you and I will also pray for you.

 

Love you all!!!

God with us.

Definitely praying! I am 8 months out from a much too rapid taper--basically cold turkey. It's very easy to lose heart in this situation. Very thankful for this group!

So glad that you found that there is a strong Christian group here.  I feel the same as you, that I would not be able to get through another day without the precious encouragements and prayers of my family here.   I am grateful to God that we have found each other.  I and others will be praying for you and please keep us in your prayers too.   Love in Him.

lord, none of us asked for the suffering we are experiencing.  all of us sought out healing, and suffered more because of it.  please find it in your heart to forgive our mistake in trusting those whose responsibility is to first do no harm.  and please heal all of us, so that we may return to our lives, and so that those that love us also suffer no longer.  we ask for your mercy, lord.  and please show the medical industry and big pharma the error of it's ways, and make changes, so that no one else must suffer like we have
