Well if you’ve been following my blog, you know that over the past week or so I’ve been thanking my followers for coming by, and I promised to come by and visit your blogs also as time permits. Well since that uptick in my numbers, for one reason or another things keep coming up and getting in my way. I already mentioned the play “Dead Man Walking,” which is now behind me, and I know with spring time there will be many chores to do inside and outside and they all take time.
I should have known it would be a very eventful day, just by the way the day started. While making the bed, I was pulling on the sheet, the sheet slipped out of my hand, and my hand went flying backwards slamming into the head-board. Immediately I was doubled over in pain with tears momentarily coming to my eyes. I looked at my right hand, it was right where the vein of the middle finger is, and I guess a blood vessel or something swelled up and the hand in that area turned red.
I put some ointment on the hand and the stinging soon wore off. I then thank God that it was my right hand as I’m left handed. The funny thing is; that a little while back I was talking to the Lord about my health issues, and as I whined to Him about every part of my body, I said, “At least there is nothing wrong with my hands, and I can still use them to blog and be a witness for you.” Now here I was taking such a hard hit today. But I’m still thankful, as you see I am still typing now, but it could have been worse.
After establishing that my hand was still connected to my body and in working order, I came on the computer, and decided to check out one of my other sites before going to WordPress. I could not get into the site. I put my password in over and over, but it was still coming up as a wrong password. How could that be? I then went through the process to change the password, but I still could not get in. Finally somehow I got in for about a minute and left it to go to WordPress, I was there for a short while and then I lost my connection to the Internet. The same thing happened yesterday evening. So for some reason a host of different issues seem to be getting in my way of me and my blogging, just when I would like to put more of an effort into it, after getting such encouraging numbers.
I decided I would read some blogs on my phone, but my phone was also partially affected. I could read the ones that were already there, but not any of the new blogs. I did read your blog Jesusluvsall; about chronic illness. So the issues continues with the computer. I was trying to make your link live, but too many issues. But I just wanted to say that yes I understand chronic pain and fatigue. While I don’t complain about pain like I once did, Fatigue is constantly around some corner waiting to take over. I guess I know longer talk too much about my health issues, with the thinking that if I resist thinking about them, they may go away. Don’t get me wrong, I still try to do anything I can, so that I may have a better day, and I try to use foods as a medication. I think what helped me to get rid of a lot of the pain I once had, is the kind of foods I now eat and the ones I won’t eat. When I keep refusing certain foods, my sister usually says, I’ll be eating air next. When you are so often sick, at some point you become sick and tired of being sick and tired, you will do whatever it takes to try and feel a bit better.
I think the problems with the Internet may be an ongoing thing, so I may not be here as frequently for the next little while. I say this, because they are working in our neighborhood. The Internet that I’m complaining about right now, may be the least of my problems. The people working in our neighborhood has red and yellow lines across our lawns, and I can see that one of the lined they drew, is extremely close to one of our evergreen shrubs. So the issues continue. Apparently they will be doing a lot of digging up and putting down wires and I have a feeling that is what’s affecting the Internet.
After I couldn’t get on the Internet, I decided I would perhaps go outside and take a picture or two in the garden, and see what’s coming up. Well wouldn’t you know, it’s as though the enemy (Satan) said, “We’ll see to that.” It got dark outside, and the rain came down. So now I had no Internet, neither could I go outside. But what happened was, the workers on the street left when it started to rain and that’s when the Internet came back on. Trials, and tribulations!
I will continue to ask God to give me the patience to deal with these issues as they present themselves. For even as I complain about hurting my hand, I still have a hand, and even as I complain about Internet issues, at least we have a computer and the Internet, and I pray that tomorrow will be a better day. Thank you for for reading and for stopping by.
