Walking through the valley.
Monday, September 26, 2016
I've not posted lately. Mostly because I would only complain about my health. I've felt horrible since I was in the hospital on 9/11. I was eating whatever we had what my husband would make. I've not had a food plan the past couple of weeks.
I started to feel like myself again on Friday. We've taken a couple of walks and I haven't gotten dozzy. My energy is still low, but now I'm just tired, not fatigued. I been able to cook and it feels good.
Not to be overly dramatic but I feel I have a deeper understanding of what it means to walk through the valley of the shadow of death. I could feel it loomy. I'm being torn down by whatever is going on in my body and it was feeling like I'm on the down hill slide.
Today I feel like I'm out of the valley, out of the shadows and back into the sunshine. I think I need to re-prioritize some things in my life and get serious about my health. I thought I was doing pretty well, but apparently I need to do better. Looking at the Mediterranean diet as it is heart healthy.
I went to my GP. She's conducting other tests to see if something other than my heart is causing problems. She's starting with a ton of blood tests. If that looks good, we'll start looking at other major systems and organs. She said we can do all that but it may still come back to my heart being tje culprit because that's where the symptoms point. At we will know the heart isn't reacting to some other problem.
Ultimately, God is in control. I've been praying for peace and I have it, for the moment at least. I don't think this is over, but I am going to enjoy the reprieve from all the hospital drama.
