Hi everyone! I have been resting and digesting from the trip to Stanford Dysautonomia clinic. The staff and doctor were thorough and caring. The doctor was so great he genuinely wanted to help me get understanding and help. He has confirmed the diagnosis of  Systemic Exertion Intolerance Disease ( SEID aka ME/CFS.) Which I wasn’t sure of in the first place It feels good just knowing. I actually prefer the name SEID because it is not classified as a syndrome. Unfortunately the SEID doctors are not accepting new patients. ☹️ I have both of the main diagnosis criteria Orthostaic Intolerance and Cognitive Impairment.I understand better than ever that I have to pace myself by sitting laying down or using a mobility device to avoid a flare up. Also do everything I can to keep systemic inflammation down and increase my salt intake to help with the Orthostatic Intolerance. I will continue to monitor my heart rate and pressure as a way to pace myself too. Even with all my efforts it’s a real struggle daily but with the encouragement and love from family, friends and faith in Jesus Christ whatever SEID throws at me I will get through it! By the grace of God. ❤️ Having Faith No matter how the world views me I am made whole! Thank you all so much for your prayers and understanding! Especially because sometimes I honestly can't type or post due to this and sometimes I can! The Lord has kept me in faith and by His grace I am overcoming minute by minute day by day! I will try to be present more here as my energy increases. Its a funny thing to have to write this post for over a week but I got it done! Praise God in all of our afflictions and triumphs! . God bless you all in Jesus name Amen! “And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.”‭‭Matthew‬ ‭14:36‬ ‭KJV‬‬

So many different issues with family this week. I have been praying that Jesus open their eyes. What is said in these verses really hit me "when their eyes were opened they followed Him." My hope and prayers for everyone here is that Jesus opens the eyes of people in your life and family. I have been working on several different discussions and pray to have them completed by the time I return from the medical tests. I will be gone Wed-Thurs next week with no way to access DOT maybe I can get to a library if not I just wanted you all to know that I am still here thinking and praying for you all!

This morning I was reminded about how reading the Proverbs everyday has really helped me to over come a lot of things in this world! I started reading one a day for a month years ago when I first believed. Even now when something in this world doesn't seem right or someone in my life is behaving a certain way I can rely on the Proverbs for wisdom in how the way I should go. Chapter 221 A GOOD name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.2 The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all.3 A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.4 By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.5 Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward: he that doth keep his soul shall be far from them.6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.7 The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.8 He that soweth iniquity shall reap vanity: and the rod of his anger shall fail.9 He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor.10 Cast out the scorner, and contention shall go out; yea, strife and reproach shall cease.11 He that loveth pureness of heart, for the grace of his lips the king shall be his friend.12 The eyes of the LORD preserve knowledge, and he overthroweth the words of the transgressor.13 The slothful man saith, There is a lion without, I shall be slain in the streets.14 The mouth of strange women is a deep pit: he that is abhorred of the LORD shall fall therein.15 Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.16 He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want.17 Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thine heart unto my knowledge.18 For it is a pleasant thing if thou keep them within thee; they shall withal be fitted in thy lips.19 That thy trust may be in the LORD, I have made known to thee this day, even to thee.20 Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge,21 That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?22 Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:23 For the LORD will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them.24 Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go:25 Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul.26 Be not thou one of them that strike hands, or of them that are sureties for debts.27 If thou hast nothing to pay, why should he take away thy bed from under thee?28 Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.29 Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.

Good morning afternoon or evening! I really enjoyed the discussion last week. I will be working on another discussion topic and I'll post it as soon as I can. Through all these different challenging things we all experience in this life if we walk by faith and not by what our family, friends or the world say Jesus always is walking with us through the triumph and storms.
Eelia Marcia (Proverbs 3:5-6)Yes on regular social media most are lead by money pointing fingers or division over stuff that is not divisive or fame the spirit of the world but I have met many who are just hard to find them. Well you all have helped me and made me feel welcome. I have been wanting to do something for a long time everything I tried never worked out I am committed to this group and God willing Much more to come!

a Guest Eelia Actually talking of Steamrollers I am looking forward to the yearly "Steam Engine" day. Steamrollers can pull "quite a lot behind" and not just used to flatten things So in your case using that word is right! because you are pulling "quite a lot behind you" In other words, we're all tagging behind you. Phew, that's got me out of that one 2 months ago

I was going to start at the beginning but then I realized that I have plenty of overcoming that is happening right now. In December I experienced my first seizure tachycardia event due to Orthostatic Intolerance. I ended up in the emergency room and they found nothing wrong with me. When I followed up with the Neurologist he interpreted my emergency room lab work incorrectly and in front of my daughter he was very accusing me that I was drinking. It was humiliating and embarrassing. I later reviewed the labs with another doctor who confirmed that I didn’t have a positive blood alcohol level. I proceeded with changing my medical records which is not an easy task having to deal with hospitals administrators. I have been appealing a denial from my long term disability and the Neurologist still sent my insurance the old medical records stating that I was intoxicated. I lost my appeal for my long term disability this week. Throughout this journey there’s been a sense of peace in my soul. If I want to lash out for the injustice this peace comes over me like a crashing wave.“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:7‬ ‭KJV‬‬My first instinct is to let the Neurologist have a piece of my mind maybe even lash out in anger for taking away the opportunity for me to have financial stability. This is where I have to stop myself and go to my Bible to see how Jesus Christ handled accusations. In Matthew and  Mark he said nothing when the chief priests and scribes accused him to Pilate;  Matthew 27:12 And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing. Mark 15:3 And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing. Even though I want to say all kinds of words to this doctor in defense of myself the example I found in searching the scripture was to say nothing and trust God.Psalm 7 O Lord my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:2 Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.3 O Lord my God, If I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands;4 If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)5 Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust. Selah.6 Arise, O Lord, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that thou hast commanded.7 So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about: for their sakes therefore return thou on high.8 The Lord shall judge the people: judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me.9 Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.10 My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart.11 God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.12 If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.13 He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.14 Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.15 He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.16 His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.17 I will praise the Lord according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the Lord most high.Our defense is God if we are of an upright heart. Upright, Uprightness"Upright" is the English equivalent most often used for the Hebrew yasar [r;v"y]. Literally, yasar [r;v"y] pertains to that which is vertically erect ( Gen 37:7 ; Exod 36:20 ) or horizontally level or smooth ( Isa 26:7 ). It also means straight ( Isa 40:3 ) or evenly distributed ( 1 Ki 6:35 ). I find this definition ironic and I think ABBA has a great sense of humor! My main struggle lately is with literally staying upright due to Orthostatic Intolerance. So this lesson is on many levels of understanding for me first in my body and then in my heart. I have been totally honest and forthright in my dealings with this insurance company and doctors. I can trust God who knows my heart to be my defender in this battle of accusations and denials coming at me from every direction. I rest in Christ. The example of Jesus Christ  saying nothing has really helped me to understand that we don't have to answer back to the accuser only go to scripture as Christ did when he was tempted as we can read in Matthew chapter 4. Through the faith of Christ  I am upright in my heart and literally vertical or upright in my body. He helps me to control my little member my tongue, no way I can in my own strength. “But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.”‭‭James‬ ‭3:8‬ ‭KJV‬‬ This is a short example of Christ Jesus being the example if you are experiencing persecution or plain bullying look to Jesus for how to act, for me its usually the last thing I would think of doing! Praise and Glory to the Most High! My hope is we search the scriptures to overcome life’s challenges and understand out triumphs we have through the Word made flesh, John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truthThank you for reading. I hope not matter your situation that you find comfort and peace by the instructions we have been given. Heavenly Father instruct us through the Word made flesh your only begotten son our Messiah Jesus.

I am going to try my best to post a short study every week but honestly not sure if I will be able to due to my chronic illnesses. I am just grateful that I have Jesus Christ to carry me on through this battle. This is a video explaining what it’s like for me when I sit up or do small chores. https://youtu.be/qMySiA9Lp4M I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me Phil 4:13I may not be cut out to lead a group right now and that’s okay. Sometimes I think I can do a lot more but the more I sit up my brain stops thinking clearly. I will give it a try and feel free to let me know if once a week teaching post and then interacting via comments is ok? otherwise I will delete and try again when I have a better control of this dysautonomia. The only way I am here typing and wanting to reach out to others in the body of Christ is Christ Jesus. The Word has given me a great comfort and has inspired to try to help others who are going through health issues find comfort. We are never alone in this battle! We have the instructions written down for us. “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭3:16-17‬ ‭KJV‬‬Thank you all for joining and I am working on the first short study and God willing will have it posted on Thursday Evening Pacific Standard Time
