Over the last month and a half I’ve been changing medications again. I was putting on so much weight with the previous regime and feeling — how to put it — a little too detached. They might have helped manage the pain and anxiety and adrenaline poisoning but I kept realising how little care they left in me. But, not caring, it took me quite a while to talk to my doc about a change.
I don’t know if it has been coming off one lot or the effect of the new pills but I find myself caring a lot more — it’s more like living even if I am also prone to get more irritated and snappy (sorry you guys I live with)!
One outcome is that later today, for the first time in 18 months, I am going to preach at the evening’s Eucharist. It is strange to be preaching without also presiding but, by God, I have missed this part of my life!
Wish me luck!
Rob, we send you our prayers of healing and support. May the Peace be with you, Paul
I wish you luck =)
Great to hear you’re doing so well Rob and a real privilege to have you take our Annointing Of The Sick service on the Living With Chronic Illness retreat on Thurs. – It was a lovely service!
I remember sharing with you that I was struggling with, Jesus’ words ‘come to me all who are weary and I will give you rest’. I struggled because I’d spent the whole week, talking to God on the retreat, yet I felt anything but rested!
However, I just needed to let you know, that on Fri. morning, I noticed how peaceful and rested I felt – Thanks again for a lovely and fruitful service!
God bless 0:-)
