Epstein-Barr Virus

I know I have written about the book medical medium before, and I have been reading about the Epstein Barr Virus. It was not only similar to my illness and the problems I have faced, but it has so much information that I have never heard about. Click here for more information.a4a4

Healing

A year ago my health was horrible. I was in pain, and exhausted all the time. I had difficulty, and pain when I would lay down, sit, stand, and walk. It has almost been a year since my life changed completely. I don’t even feel like the same person. My recovery, and healing didn’t happen over night. Thinking about how I used to feel makes all the milestones, and achievements in my recovery feel amazing.

Being able to go on vacation was amazing accomplishment. I feel like I was able to let go that part of my life behind for good. When I was on vacation I didn’t think of myself as sick. I am now starting to think of myself as healed.

1 John 5:14 “This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”

Deuteronomy 4:29 “But from there you will seek the Lord your God and you will find him, if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul.”

Medical Medium

I have been trying to figure out how to improve my diet to help me have more energy. Medical medium is a fascinating book. It is filled with so much information that most doctors don’t even know about. It has a lot of information about chronic fatigue, Epstein-barr virus, and so many other chronic illnesses. I wish I would have had this information years ago. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more information about how to treat chronic illness naturally. You can also go to medicalmedium.com.

Blessing

There have been times throughout my illness when I wondered if God was listening to my prayers. I wondered if he knew how much I was struggling. How much I needed help from him. So many times, almost all time, I wonder what is God’s purpose for me throughout all of this. There have also been times where I thought that asking for his help would be a sign of weakness. Putting all of my trust in God hasn’t been a easy journey.

Slowly my faith has gotten stronger. I am learning to trust in God’s plan, and his timing even when I don’t understand it. He has made my struggle, my pain, my illness possible for me get through it. He has made it possible for me to be in recovery, and to make as much progress as I have.

I have been blessed with this amazing gift of getting better. I have been given this second chance, and I don’t want to waste it.

I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. ~e.e. cummings

Psalm 18:6 “But in my distress I cried out to the LORD; yes, I prayed to my God for help. He heard me from his sanctuary, my cry to him reached his ears.”

Job 5:9 “He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.”

Psalm 81:6-7 “I removed the burden from their shoulders; their hands were set free from the basket. In your distress you called and I rescued you, I answered you out of a thundercloud; I tested you at the waters of Maribah.”

Psalm 16:11

You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand. Psalm 16: 11

The simple things in life are beautiful.

Recovery update

I have been able to walk more and more. My brain is feeling better. It is feeling the best it has for the first time since before I became ill. My muscles are continuing to get stronger, and I am having more energy. This is what I have always hoped for. This progress is amazing!

April 7th

I was able to go on multiple walks throughout the day. Its the most I have walked in one than I have in a few years.DMRE4654
