How is everyone doing?

Postby asc » Fri Jul 06, 2012 11:16 am

Really missing you all.

I'm doing quite well at present, and while I was away I had some thoughts about how God weaves everything - good and bad - into forming the image of Christ in us: our friends and Christian leaders, our pets, our hobbies, our personatity characteristics - but also our bad things - experience of self-harm, depression, dyspraxia, Asperger's, physical problems etc. which can help us to help others and 'be the hands of Christ' as we sang in one of our Songster pieces last night. I wish I could reproduce a (not very good) picture I did at a conference the other week.

Glad you are doing quite well Ann. Your comment reminds me of the poem about life being a tapestry that God is weaving. Sometimes we only see the mess of the back, but God sees the beauty of the front

I'm really struggling with a headache and vertigo today. I also hada weird, confused dream and woke up with severe urges to SH.

I do hope you all feel better soon.

My dizziness is easier now, although my allergic eye problems are a nuisance. I do have certain suspicions and am about to take steps which might improve things, although it might worsen things today.

Ann,

I'm just catching up. Yes, it's really encouraging to be reminded that God uses all parts of our lives and experiences to make us who we are.

How is the eye trouble today? I hope the changes you were trying didn't cause a big set back.

Sorry Kezzie that you are battling so many infections, That can be so draining and there isn't such a thing as a day off with your little one!
And Eppie poorly too? Praying for your speedy recovery - not to get you quickly back to work, just feeling better in yourself.

I've been a bit under, finding getting through each day seems to take effort I haven't always got. But then too many quiet days and I dip lower. Only comes out in my bulimia now days as I haven't SH for over 2 years and amazingly, thanks to Father Gods kindness I very rarely have urges either.

love and best wishes to each of you,
Sally

Not good today. THe show was exhausting, and my friend isn't speaking to me, which I find very upsetting. However, the worst part is the pain - everything from my thighs up seems to hurt. Even my morphine hasn't helped and part of me wants to take more to try to knock the pain out, while part of me wants to see if SH will increase my own endorphins.

Sorry you are suffering so much with the pain after the show. How are you feeling today?
I hate rifts in relationships. I pray things ease with your friend quickly.

Hey Curly, so glad you could post a little message. I think of you every time Egypt is in the news, and that is very often!

Hi Churlywhirly,

think we all know about ups and downs. It's so lovely that you can post again. You've been very much missed!

Really glad that therapy has continued. How does the summer break feel?
I hope that getting back to UK works out as easily as it can,

much love Sally

Struggling a bit, partly physically, but it's better now it isn't so hot and humid.

I'm so sorry to hear you are struggling Ann, is there anything that you could talk through that would ease some of the struggle? It has been hot! X
