Been a While

Good Day,

I havent posted in a while. I have been sick. I have been reading post and commenting. Some days I wasn’t even able to read.

I have been having stomach issues for a long time now. I finally decided to go to the doctor for I couldn take the burning sensation in my stomach any longer. It has been off and on for a couple of months now. Usually it would be one day here and then a couple days there. I would adjust some things in my diet and feel better. There figuring that I was alright. Im the kind of person where the doctor is my last resort. I don’t like taking antiobotics or pills for that matter.  This time was diffferent. The constant buring wasnt going away. After the second day I decided to visit the doctor. My Dr. knows that I only go and see her when I can’t handle things on my own. Its like being in a relationship with Jesus. He wants us to come to Him for everything. I am learning to lean on Him more for everthing and not just the big things.

I have had a lot of stomach/abdomen issues throughout my life.  Last year I had H-Pylori (another stomach thing).  I was on some heavy antibiotics for a week. It wasnt a pretty thing.  Laid up in my bed not able to do much. I am learning that when you are on antibiotics that you should be taking extra probitotics to protect the lining of your stomach. I wish I knew this growing up, taking antiobiotics like it was some good food. So now I believe that my stomach is all messed up.

Back to the Dr. now, she does some listening, poking and proding and asking questions. She knows me and how I feel in regards to drugs. I would prefer a natural remedy than taking a drug. Needless to say she gives me a script for Dexilant 60mg and says you need to see a GI specialist, this time I agree with her.
So that’s where I’m at. Waiting for my appointment to see the GI specialist. I won’t be anxious because I know my Father has me in His hands. There is nothing that He will not see me thru.
I have been taking my pills for 4 days now. It’s up and down but grateful that I am not getting any worse.

“Thank you” to all those that have read a post or commented on one. I am thankful for all of you. Reading your blogs have inspired me, sometimes given me the motivation to post a blog that I wasn’t sure about. I love the openness, and honesty that your blog brings. The way that words are so descriptive that they pierce your soul is so refreshing. Although I am new to the blogging world I have felt so welcomed and that is thanks to you. May you all continue to write and inspire others to put themselves out there and live life.

“Thank you” for allowing me to be a part of your world and thanks for being a part my world.

This Letter.

Its funny that I stumbled upon these letters today. A friend (Duztyn Leonard) mentioned to me just yesterday that he still had the letter that I wrote him, then today I find these.  I thought it fitting to share them. All written to me by my Human Services Counselling Class towards the end of my first year. Enjoy..

“It was wicked chillin with you. You constantly make me smile.” -Kristal

“I feel comfortable around you. I feel this way because you do not judge and you are an amazing person to be around. I am grateful that you shared it helped and touched me. I hope one day I can be as strong as you are.” -Paula

“I am happy to had the opportunity to get to know you. I feel there was a lot of valuable memories and experiences shared…” -Stacey

“It is your uniqueness that gives freshness and vitality to a relationship. What you think about yourself is much more important than what others think of you. You have a gift that only you can give the world…” – Anthony

I hope your energy and intuition will continue to put you in the company of those who need a model of courage, light and humour to guide them out of the dark.” -Nancy

I believe I stumbled upon these letter at the right time. By reading this I am reminded that when you are yourself you have nothing to fear. Although I started then my journey continues and there are many more lives to inspire. I will no longer be busy with others things but that which I started this blog to do.

Wherever you go and whatever you do make an impact. Impart into the lives of those that are brought into your life whether for a season, or a lifetime.
