The foggy mornings, confussion of location, restlessness, sleepiness, aching body (fibromyalgia), lathargic, seclusion, panic attacks; the blues and... HIGHS and LOWS (is what these symptoms where called in the 1800's and 1900's). This list goes on and on.
If this was not so serious I would say, "It's enough to drive you crazy".
Elmira, a slave, was with her master in upstate New York, who sold her down the river to a Plantation, in Effingham County, Georgia. She had a family while caring for her Master in her new home.
Her son, John Henry is my maternal grandfather. Who
stole his wife, Louisa, away from slavery in Louisiana. He brought her back to the plantation in Georgia.
After Holy Matrimony they had fourteen children. My mother was the 13th. Who would have enjoyed being here these days involved in the political drama. Her predictions seemed to always be true . The world today is not strange to me, I heard it prophesied all my life.
Mama would like to see this nondenominational intergrating of church today. She was in her mind, influential in the house of God and in the political arena.
This story has taken a turn...whats next?
