I thank everyone that responded to my questions yesterday. I hope more will, I find it so interesting what others think. I know that many of the questions can only be answered with an opinion but that is all I am looking for.
Rachel, you caught it. My “trick” question, it was Noah that built the Ark and not Moses. I am going to try to respond to each comment individually and then in a few days will post my opinions on all. In the interim I do hope to hear the opinions of others.
Many have asked me to possibly share some of my life experiences. Experiences, that I feel may have led to my current health conditions. I am going to start doing that with the idea, I hope others will see the error of my ways and not follow in my foot steps.
Really my story is no different than that of many others. Poor life choises, not following a healthy diet, not getting enough exercise and allowing to much stress to enter my life. With the stress I suppose I mean not being able to deal with it in a healthy way and instead internalizing to much. You carry to much like that inside of you and it will effect you in some way often it seems as is my case via your health.
Not the healthiest of diets and lack of exercise are things that are pretty much self explanatory so I will write about some of the stresses in my life that I feel added to or compounded the situation. Stress is a killer never doubt that. Maybe by writing about these things it will also help me to understand and get a better grasp on situations and even release a little negativity I do still hold in some cases. This negativity is still currently causing me some stress, I do need to let it go.
I am going to try and write about some of the most stressful times in my life, how I dealt with it, the effect it had on me and now looking back maybe I can see a way I could have dealt with things in a more positive or healthier way.
I will write about individual situations but for today I will give a broad statement about how I gave way to much importance to job and career to the detriment of all others aspects of my life, including my health. I just look back now and shake my head thinking how ridiculous and silly I was.
Health and family should always, always come first. Only to late did the real importance of that come.
Vi has just come to get me. We have been having an ongoing “dispute”. She has been trying to drag me to the hospital for the past 3 days. My shortness of breath has really been getting worse the past few weeks. Today, I have to agree with her, I think it is time to just go and check out the pretty nurses.
Hi Bill, I found your spot on the web.
Interesting writing. Will come back more often.
praying for you take care
Praying for you Brother….let us know what you found out.
((( Bill ))) Adding my prayers to the rest.
And in case you could use some fun, I’ve tagged you for a game. See my place for details.
Good idea for a writing project Bill – it’s one many of us should do I would think. A “taking stock” sort of thing but it’s oh so much more than that.
You mention the stresses – and the stress of not being able to breathe is a pretty big one. I’m hoping you go and are able to get some help.
Prayers for you as always,
*sending positive, healing thoughts*
Sure hope that appointment went well.
*thinkin’ of ya*
I’m praying for you, Bill.
Not too late Bill, for look at how you see the world now and at how many people you’ve touched and continue to touch. Your body might be letting you down at this point in your life, but your soul is undoubtably flourishing. Sending you light and love, take care my friend x
i’m back from graduation. And just want you to know that you are an inspiration to me. And I just hope that if i am lucky enough to have time to prepare to die i can do it with as much strength you are doing it.
I love the way you call it “checking out the pretty nurses”!
