Barbara A. R.

I am 44 and have several chronic diseases. I have no women in my mother, sisters, cousins, etc. I only have a daughter who thinks sick people are weak.I have a beautiful loving son who is 22. He has put his life on hold to care for me.

I have no energy and am always sick. Now.even to sit at the computer is draining. I am constantly fighting one illness after another. Each disease I have makes it hard to treat another. My main illness is severe Hep C which I contracted via a needlestick at work. I have had it 20 years and it is getting progressively worse. I already feel like I am *dead*.To get up and walk or take a bath is draining. I do not know if it is the Hepatits, the medicines I must take for excruating pain or for high blood pressure after a stroke at 39, or severe depression. Lately I feel like I am literally about to die soon.The doctors seem to have reached a point where there is little they can do to try and *fix* me.I am so afraid and tired. Please pray that I regain at LEAST enough strength to fight to live. This feeling has been with me for about two months now and each day it grows stronger.I BEG you..please pray. I can not leave my son..I also have a year old granddaughter who may need me one day. Bless all of you.

Lord, I lift this courageous woman up to you in prayer and ask that You cover her in Your precious love. Remove any doubts from her mind and her heart that life is not worth living...let her remember how precious, if not perfect, this gift You gave to us is. Bring good friends, good mentors, and good doctors into her life that might guide her during these difficult moments. Let her feel the love of her family and her friends, both known and unknown...for we love her with all our hearts. Ease her pain and give her joyful days. Open the eyes of her daughter and soften her heart so that she may see her mother as the strong and courageous woman that she is. Bind every illness,ache and pain and cast them out of this woman's body. In Your name, I ask these things. Amen.

I too suffer from chronic my case Hep B (from a needle stick years ago), diabetes, and periperal neuropathy. Each day is harder than the one before to try tokeep on going, but the love of God and the beauty of life around me sustains me. You are loved and you are needed. Take back your control and your voice and reclaim your life. You have many things left to do. I hope one of them is to be my friend. If you need to me at God bless you.

God please take this man's hand and walk him through his pain and despair.

Dear Barbara, I can't imagine how much you must be coping with! Your health problems are worse than mine. My burdens are diabetes, high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis, degenerative joint disease, high cholesterol, panic attacks, and menopause. Last year, my doctor told me to stop playing my violin. Well, that would end my job - I teach it! I, too, am prone to bouts of depression. I have no children of my own and at 47 years old it is a bit frightening to think of having no one to look after me when I get to the point when I may ned help. A couple of years ago, I had an overwhelming urge to take all the medications in my little bucket and end it all. It was on a Sunday and I thought, God, I need help! I called every mental health center I could find in the phone book and, being a Sunday, all I got were answering machines! Then low and behold, I found the national suicide hot line and dialed it. After a few rings, A recorded message came on saying that the number was no longer in service! I had just spent 20 minutes trying to find someone to call through the tears that kept falling down my reading glasses and got no help at all, but you know, after all of that, I just started laughing so hard My sides felt they would split and I could hardly catch my breath! The mood swings that menopause bring came in handy that day! Stand up comics have been earning a living by making fun of their disabilities for years! I know that your situation is more, much more serious, than my own, but if you could manage a joke or a smile when you feel really bad, it might help. It has helped me - not every time, mind you - but maybe it might help you, too. It won't cure your body, but it may boost your spirit from time to time. It is said that laughter is the best medicine. I know this not a prayer, but I thought it might help you. Your son is there by choice and I hope your daughter never has to find out the hard way how hard your life is and that she will soon show more compassion for your condition. If you wish to have a friend, you may contact me at My hours leave me no time for a social life so I wouldn't mind having a pen pal. My mom's name also is Barbara and is poor health, too. Dad died about 4 years ago, but she is not alone and you aren't either. If you want a laugh or a smile, I'll try my best to provide them for you. Take care and don't give up! Mary.

Our Dear Heavenly Father, I come to you thanking and praising you for all the wonderous blessings you've given to all of us and the sacrifices you made. At this time, I ask you to give our dear Christian friend the strength to live and to continue on, to relieve her pain, and to fight depression. Lord, I rebuke the Devil, and tell him right now to get out of this woman's body forever. I also ask Lord, hat you touch her daughter's heart and have her realize her mother needs her love and understanding now more than ever. I thank you Lord for her son's loving heart and ask You to Bless him abundantly. Give him the strength and courage to be of help for his mother. "Where two or three are gathered, so shall I be." Many prayers have gone out for Barbara, and all agree her only source of help is our prayers. In Jesus precious name, AMEN.
