I have not been on the forum very much over the last few days. This is because I have been on the phone with several people who are desperately dealing with their personal illness or that of a family member.
I am a rough and rugged middle aged man that can sometimes be calloused to perceiving the suffering of others. Yet I am presently both intellectually and emotionally overwhelmed by my growing perception of the scope of suffering being experienced by so many individuals and families. The cries and groans of the suffering are piercing the silence of this pandemic. I have had several intense conversations face to face and on the phone that this rough and rugged man was brought to tears by the suffering of the afflicted.
I believe that every family has one or more members among the afflicted. My own 78 year old mother-in-law has all the symptoms of a 30 year long chronic lyme and coinfections illness. Of course it has been denied and covered up. How can progress ever be obtained when those suffering believe the lies of the establishment and are not interested in knowing and acting on truth? Truth is independent, and is often found on a narrow and crooked path, but not often found on the broad and straight path that leads to destruction. The immensity of this story is so much bigger than i could have ever imagined!
I am finding that there are many parents who are sick who have 1 or more children who are also sick with the illness. Almost all of these people have reached long term chronic status. It is no longer a simple issue of taking a pill with the expectation that the illness will go away. Secondary issues have surfaced and must also now be dealt with as part of a complex multi faceted situation. The financial hurdle often blocks progress.
My prediction is that the worst is yet to come. Make hay while the sun shines.
We are older parents and Heather is our only child. She became so sick and debilitated that we thought that she was going to die, and everything looked so hopeless and bleak. However, God answered our prayers, and used the healing hands of Dr. J. at the Hansa Center to more than restore the health of our precious daughter. I have a moral obligation to help others that are likewise suffering!
