God Is Gracious
Despite the rough year I've had so far, I must admit that God has been with me every step of the way. Besides financial assistance, I've received some extraordinary help as well. Over two months I suffered from intense pruritis, with an occasional rash, and saw 3 specialists who determined they could do nothing to help me. Past being desperate, I began a novena to St. Jude and Our Lady, and the results were miraculous. Six days into the novena, angel whispers in my ear advised me to stop taking the oil of oregano caps that I used to treat my sinus issues. On the seventh day I stopped taking them, and became itch-free immediately! I have had a few sensitivity issues linger, like itching on contact with wool, my face flushing when I have the slightest amount of alcohol - but nothing, NOTHING as severe as what I was suffering from a week earlier. Of course the membranes of the sinuses and those of the uterus being of the same make-up, I will and do have flares once or twice a month, but I hope that is temporary until I can get the remaining chemicals flushed out of my system. My doctor discovered at this time from all the blood work that I was pre-diabetic. Major changes in exercise and nutrition coming my way tomorrow (if only I could keep my hands off the chocolate...). But I am not fully diabetic, so that is a relief...of sorts. Time to seriously buckle down on job hunting, even if I start college again in June. Trish, it turns out after all that time, doesn't need me down at her house to help her with the new baby and two boys.
