You are Too Young to Be That Ill (Article) - 2/15/2009 4:46:42 PM
My, my, Lisa, how I identify with this article; though I've written a few myself. My set of diagnoses fill almost a full page and began at the age of six. All my life, I've heard comments such as, "Well, you look the picture of health!" As you say, they can't see what we feel inside these bodies. At age 23, I was diagnosed with more diseases that usually plague only the elderly, and it goes on. I am 64yo now and will be 65 in June.
Recently, I wrote a 4-part series of how Federal (HUD) and State (DSHS) agencies along with their doctors and hospitals are abusing people like me and, possibly, you. The first part provides my medical history so that the other 3 parts will make sense. "Uncommon Common Abuse of Seniors & Elderly" ~ segments I thru IV.
Unlike your job experience, I was fortunate to have great employers as well as being in executive positions, and I hid the chronic pain very well; except on odd occasions. I did not go in on those days. At any rate, I feel that a loud roar of indignation and demand for change needs to reach the ears of our new President.
Hope you stop by my Den. Much love in Christ, BonnieQ

Illness and Anger: 3 Steps to Avoid the Spiritual Pitfalls (Article) - 2/13/2008 9:54:19 PM
Good article. I am a heart sufferer with type 1-diabetes to boot. I have glaucoma and had several retina releases. I had cataracts and both my lenses were removed and replaced with artificial lenses. I suffer from severe food allergies. However, I go on and is essentially a happy person. I was angry with my first coronary bypass operation. I was only 36 and thought it was unfair, but one grows up and realises that, that is life. Be happy and content. Willie

How to Scrapbook Your Child's Adoption (Article) - 1/15/2008 10:43:07 PM
Good tips on an important subject. Being an adopted child myself, as well as a retired social work professional, I can attest to the import of these issues. My novel, Reflections from Shadow, is in part, the story of a foster child and is written from the child's point of view. This book is helpful from a number of perspectives but can offer some insight into the mind of the child growing up away from his birth parents. All the best. Malcolm Watts

I have read about this very thing and I think it is absolutely wonderful! Adoption can be a beautiful experience for both mother and child if it's done the right way. I have a lot of respect/admiration for people who choose to adopt; not everyone can do it. Very informative article! :)

Lisa, under number 6, is this what you wanted to say?---"you can minister to others until you are healed"---or did you want to say "can't"?
This is valuable advice for churches. I want to read more of your work as I have time.
