Hi, Fatherjohn,
It's the middle of the night and of course there are certain people I think of and you're one of them! I know you've posted to me recently, but I just wondered how you were doing. I know it's not been an easy time for you.

Take care,

PaLady

I am so touched that so many really care. We all feel this as we share our ups and downs and our fellow cpers share such concern. Thank you not just for caring about me but for all of you caring about each other. Where do I begin about how I am doing? I received the results from my MRI. All looked good and it just confirmed that the problem is nreve damage which we already knew. My PMS and my work comp agreed that there was no reason for a psy. eval so we are moving ahead without it. I will go in next week and start the test period for the nerve stimulator. We will see if that will bring some relief. Work, well it is always there. I was to be at a conference this week but after heading out early Monday I did not feel good so I cancelled and just header to the office. Not sure what happened but they came into my office and I could not stand and was doing everything I could not to pass out. I went home early and headed to bed. I have tried working the rest of the week and I am finding it difficult. I find that if I am counseling a student I can only concentrate for a maximum of 10 minutes then my mind is gone. I spoke to a group of pastors today and was not able to get my word out clearly. I am going to try and rest this weekend and see if there is any change and if not I will make an appoitment to get into my PCP. I'll try and kepp you all updated and try and add to some of the posts. Thanks for caring.

Fatherjohn,
I am sorry to hear things are not going well but glad that you are taking the time to go home and rest. I know you are struggling to keep from moving to another "level" of CP regarding functioning, and I do understand that struggle. And I understand the need for concentration, the "being with" and listening closely which takes much more energy than most people realize - even though it can be very rewarding. And doing it all day...well, I understand.

Don't worry about posting in other threads. When you can, sneak in and tell us how you're doing. But feel the caring that's coming your way from this group. I have been blessed - and that's the word I would use - by the caring from the members here in the thread I posted when I was feeling very down. It truly has helped lift me, and we will do the same for you. Please don't hesitate to ask when you need it; I know that's not an easy thing for all of us helpers to do. I guess it's our turn in life.

Sending you healing thoughts for a peaceful Easter.

((((((((((((((Fatherjohn)))))))))))))))

Healing thoughts being sent your way!! One day at a time right!!!! When I go to bed at night I always give thanks to God for getting me thru today and tomorrow's another day, perhaps it will be a bit better!! Take your time to rest your body, heart and soul. Hang in there!!! We are all rooting for you.

FJ,
I'm sorry you're not feeling well. "Get Well
Soon," is incredibly inadequate. They are
just weak words for my strong feelings about
what is going on for you right now.

Fatherjohn,

I will keep you in my thoughts & prayers, and pray for you to get some rest & relief and to be able to continue to do your life's work.
(((((((((((((((((Fatherjohn)))))))))))))))))))). I hope the stimulator trial goes well. As Palady said, we are all here for you; lean on us! You are a highly valued member of this forum. You have helped so many, including myself! I wish only the best for you, you deserve nothing less. Even though I don't know you in person, I feel like I know you in spirit. Keep fighting! We're rooting for you!
