Ups and Downs

Just Me emailed me a few times today, uncensored. She was feeling very down and frustrated all the way to better.

The facts...
Just Me was very appreciative of the emails/comments. She said she really needed them today. She was having a "very, very hard time" with the lack of antidepressant.

During the day, she cried for 2 plus hours until they gave her more sedatives and let her sleep a few hours.

She hasn't eaten much (not surprising to me).

Just Me asked to have the Serequel increased to help her calm down and she also has 2 anxiety meds.

She did get her patch this morning (new med). She doesn't know how long it takes to enter the blood. She is hoping to feel better in a few days, but for know she's feeling worse.

Tonight she sent a quick note saying she was feeling better and good enough to eat a little and participate in group for the first time today. She didn't feel so much like sobbing, so I am seeing this as progress in the right direction.

She felt like sleeping.

And with that she wrote, "Good night."

To my friend JustMe, a sweet brave lady with love from Michal:

As you work and wait for healing and balance, I trust you will feel much compassion and the loving hand of the Lord. Sing scripture with the hymn writer "Morning by morning new mercies I see. All I have needed Thy hand hath provided. Great is Thy faithfulness Lord unto me."

Lamentations 3:22-24
Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed,
for His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is Your faithfulness.
I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion;
therefore I will wait for Him."

You don't know me, and I don't know you (found you from Kidneys & Eyes) - but I read a little of your story and I wish I did know you in real life. You're brave. I'll say a prayer for you tonight (and for your kitties, I know I would miss mine). Hugs.

DEAR brave and determined JustMe,

Jeremiah 32:17: "Ah, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You."

I am weak but He is strong. Call upon that strength.

I know that scripture as a song and I've relied on this encouragement time after time, especially when feeling desperate and hopeless: "Our Lord God, Thou has made the heavens and the earth by Thy great power. Our Lord God, Thou has made the heavens and the earth by Thine outstretched arm. Nothing is too difficult for Thee. Nothing is too difficult for Thee. Nothing, nothing, absolutely nothing, nothing is too difficult for Thee."

Try "Jesus Loves Me"...same message, same assurance.

I pray for you especially in the night. I pray that the Comforter, the "weighted blanket" of the Holy Spirit wraps you up in His security with a warm, healing touch.

(((May Heavenly hugs tuck you in and help you feel safe.)))

Loving you, Michal
