I received the 2nd of 3 vaccines last Friday. My blood work continues to be good. While there are not that many major improvements or changes to keep you posted, I do continue to improve overall. So, the short and sweet of it, I’m better, but still not 100% yet….
October of last year is when I began having a lot of symptoms. It’s sort of surreal that I’m a year from the “beginning.” In the middle of the back pain, when ribs were moving/cracking and my hips were so bad, that pain is what finally prompted me to seek treatment. Everyone told me to see a doctor, but until the pain was bad enough, I put it off.
A lot of times, one has to hit bottom in order to fix an addiction or face a problem. For me, it was discomfort and pain. Through that pain, I wanted a doctor to treat and fix it. Once diagnosed, though shocked, I was somewhat relieved in the fact that at least there would be a treatment. An “end in sight” was better than living with pain.
A lot of people question “why?” or want to find a reason or lesson learned for things like adversity, cancer or other issues one is going through. I know I’ve learned some things. I learned that all the lessons or advice I’d given over the years, to “trust God”, is easier to say than always do. I also found that the trust I placed in God was well placed. Did God use that pain to push my faith, to grow and develop it? Sounds like the a lesson which might have been in the Bible.
I’ll leave you with a few questions and a statement. What do you need to learn? Are you at rock bottom? Are you at the beginning of an issue you’re facing? Are you so angry at God, you can’t step back and see what He’s trying to teach you? Go see the Doctor (God).
