New Hope

Part One

I’ve been dealing with debilitating health challenges for several years. They began with a second bout of the Shingles virus, this time centered in the lower back. The pain woke me from a sound sleep, then when I tried to get out of bed, I found I could not move my legs. By the next day, I was able to walk again, but with excruciating pain in the right side of my lower back. My husband took me to the Emergency Room at our local hospital. Their diagnosis was a Urinary Tract Infection, which turned out to be false.

Three days later, the Shingles rash broke out on my lower back where the pain was located. I immediately knew what it was, because I had similar pain and rash over the area of my right shoulder blade several years earlier. Both times the doctors gave me an injection and the rash quickly began to dry up and there seemed to be no after effects.

The next incident about six months later was the loss of vision in my left eye. The diagnosis was Optic Neuropathy. Then, several months after that I began to lose the vision in my right eye. I was no longer able to drive. Apparently, the only treatment available for this condition was progesterone. It did seem to stop the progression and even helped my mobility, but the side effects started to become a problem. Long-time use is not possible. The Neurologist said there was nothing else he could do for me.

Over time, mobility has continued to decrease. Pain has continued to increase. I saw doctor after doctor, had test after test, was given medications that didn’t help and created more side effects. I received no clear diagnosis as to just what is going on.

I had high hopes at the beginning. Was it three years ago, or four? But, as 2020 turned into 2021, I began to lose hope. I had felt in my heart this all could be reversed! I had read every book I came across about Natural Healing and Nutrition. I had tried to apply what I read, continued to improve my diet, detoxed, fasted, tried new dietary plans for specific disorders, all to no avail.

I couldn’t just give up! I still had my strong spiritual faith and the conviction that I could reclaim my health! I began to count my Blessings. I still had enough vision to do what I need to do. I still had the mobility to take care of my personal needs. I had a loving, supportive husband and family, I was still appreciative, very grateful indeed, to be alive. I still had the means available to me to serve the ALL, with the help of the internet. This provides for me a sense of purpose! I have so much to be thankful for.

I AM truly BLESSED, indeed!
