sick today

Hi everyone, I'm sick today. I have problems with my stomach and I am having a flare up. I've been fighting it for a couple of weeks. I think my flare up was triggered by all the stress from dealing with my mother and also the holidays. I will need to call in sick tomorrow and go to the doctor's for the prescriptions I will need.

So being home, in bed, in pain has made me think about missing Eddie and I have been crying pretty non-stop. Its awful. I know you've been there too. Eddie was always so kind if I had a flare up. He'd call to see if I needed anything. Most times I didn't but it was always good to hear his voice.
If you are a praying person I could use your prayers and positive thoughts sent out to me would be much appreciated as well.
Love and peace to all, Linda

Linda let that sad broken heart channel right out through the tummy problems... sometimes it\'s all connected. Golly when I had a fever with that flu-y thing, I cried all weekend, and thought melodramatic thoughts like it would never end. It did. You can let this be whatever it needs to be. Big hug, box of tissues, hot tea, and a deep rest.

Dearest Linda, I think when we are sick we are forced to slow down, and when we do we all know what happens, the thoughts sometimes flood in and maybe those are the times we need to give in and purge, releasing a lot that we fight back on the \"normal days\". I hope you are able to make it to the Dr and he can fix you up, Take care of yourself, I will say a special prayer for you, Love you bunches, Charlene

I believe in the power of prayer and I will pray that you have a speedy recovery and that the tears will dry and turn to smiles at your beautiful memories. Love to you. Robin

Linda, you certainly have my prayers and my good thoughts arecoming your way....it\'s hard, because when we get sick, where the body goes, the mind follows.....so you are especially vulnerable right now to downward thoughts. Please know that as you feel better, so will your thoughts (at least for awhile). I\'m so sorry. Wish I could send you some special Kleenex! Becky

Hoping you have a heating pad, hot tea, dry toast, and lots of good, sweet rest. Thinking of you, do you have some anti-spasmatic meds you can take? Call the Dr. for some, they really help. Also there are suppositories for this. Don\'t suffer needlessly. love ya, abby

Dearest Linda ~

Sometimes our bodies are just telling us to let go and rest in God\'s sweet love for us. I\'m sure Eddie is sending soothing angel-thoughts your way right this moment. Rest, breathe in/breathe out, toss that stress away like yesterday\'s trash. I\'m glad you are taking care of YOU and taking the day off tomorrow to make sure you get the medical attention you need.

Sending prayers, much love and tender thoughts of peace and healing ~ Debbie

If it is Chrons or Colitis - you already know what you need to do. It just seems so sad that you could not go to an urgent care or whatever they call them in your town. I know we have a couple open on weekends...that way you could already be getting better. It\'s no fun sista\' I have not been well...as most folks on here know - my Cymbalta (let\'s say gives me really super bad runny stools~think that will noy offend the snobs) Anyhow, all last night and most of this morning mine was all sage green....which is the liver bile coming straight on out. Oh boy lots of fun!!!! Took some imodium and it is a bit better.....what a gross subject!!!! Anyhow, be well my friend. Mary

I like ginger ale and lemon juice heated when I don\'t feel well. It was something my mom always made for us so you can definitely call it a comfort drink. Take it easy and Take care of yourself first.

Thinking of you and sending beams of healing light to you. With all that you have been through and have been processing I\'m not surprised that your body has said, \"Halt.\" Take the time that you need to feel better and know how much we each care about you. Much love, Joanie

Got a \"bug\" myself. I think the stress of missing Michael and daily all day vigils at my mothers hospital bedside have taken it\'s toll. I totally understand and just broke down a few minutes ago too. I used to hold back, but no more because I finally realize God\'s use of tears. I am a firm beliver that tears cleanse the soul. Know we are care, know I care. Love and peace, Roselle
