Pain Is A 4 Letter Word

How are you doing? How is your pain level? What are the different types of pain that you struggle with?


It is another one of those four letter words.

My pain. I am living with fibromyalgia. I have finally been able to see a rheumatologist that is trying to help me with medication.

Sleep Apnea, C-pap, and Claustrophobia, Oh My

I have recently had a sleep study done that revealed sleep apnea. So now, I sleep with a c-pap machine. I have used the machine over a month and I am still struggling with feeling claustrophobic due to wearing the headgear.

Ever since May, I have had this odd icy cold feeling in my outer thigh. So far, nothing has been determined about the reason for that.

Then there are my stomach issues. I have been dealing with bloating, indigestion and weight loss. I have no appetite because I just do not feel good.

No Ovarian Cancer, But More Tests

On a good note, I have found out that there are no signs of ovarian cancer. I will now be going for a colonoscopy which because of my secondary adrenal insufficiency, the thought really scares me.

I do want to mention something else, ever since my gynecologist appointment, I have been having major cramps. I just do not know what to make of that. She, however, is not concerned at all. She said, "As long as you are not bleeding." Um, okay, but I am in pain.

All I want to do is curl up, in the bed, in the fetal position, and cry.

Everything is just so overwhelming for me right now. My gynecologist said that if the colonoscopy does not reveal anything that is helpful, she wants to do a laparoscopy.

Matthew 7:7-8 NIV 

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.


Dear Father, 

Help ______ to ask because it will be given to ______. Help ______ to seek because ______ will find. Help ______ to knock because the door will be opened to ______. For when ______ asks, ______ will also receive. When ______ seeks, ______ will also find. And when ______ knocks, the door will be opened ( Matthew 7:7-8 ).
In Jesus' name, Amen.
