My Health

I have been having some serious health problems over the past year and was sent to yet another specialist on Monday. It was not very good news. However, I do not have an official diagnosis and am still praying that it is something that can be easily taken care of.
I want to thank Kimmie at for adding me to her prayer list and lifting my burden up to the greatest healer of them all!
II Corinthians 4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.
Thank God that my affliction is temporary and one day I will know no pain or sickness.

That's frustrating. I know all too well. I have multiple chronic illnesses so sometimes I feel like all I ever do is go to doctor visits and church and no where else.

A year and a half ago I started seeing a rhumatologist because I have some kind of auto-immune disorder, she thinks arthritis, but hasn't ever nailed it down.

A couple websites I've found to be helpful have been...

You also have my support with prayer.

I am so sorry to hear that you are not well. I will pray. You have had your fair share of troubles and we will just lift you up in prayer. I pray that it is something that you can control and that will even get better.

Please keep me posted.

Yup! I've been tweaking my blog most of the day... I'm not sure if I like how it's going, but I was bored with how my site looked. You know. Rearranging my virtual furnature. All my content should still be there in the end, just a different lay out and look.

As to you question... it has been that difficult for me to be diagnose, I know that tends to be true for a lot of people with auto-immune disorders. I've heard everything from possibly Chronic Fatigue, to Lupus, and recently my doc is fairly certain, but not completely certain that what I'm dealing with is Rheumatoid arthritis, I've at least had some improvement in my symptoms by treating it that way.

When I first started having so many problems and it started to look like I have an auto-immune disorder I just bought a ton of books, I've slowly been selling the not so helpful ones, and mostly am only using one book anymore...

"Women and Autoimmune Disease" by Robert G. Lahita, M.D., Ph.D.

I have an appointment again on monday so I'm going to press my doctor for more information.

The way I look at the whole thing though... this body I have is only temporary, it's not yet my heavenly body. God is allowing me to live through these things to give glory to Him even through these trials. I don't blame Him, I see it as a way to be able to connect with others in ways I might not be able to otherwise.

Blessings and prayers,
