It takes courage and faith to face this disease with candor and confession and to seek other points of view to questions. So many seekers come to support groups to find answers and directions to their struggles. Many have taken the time to read and offer feedback to help shape the thoughts of people in need of help. Others read and do not provide useful, helpful comments or insights, but they silently hope and often privately pray for the one suffering.
I am sorry for all suffering. But keep in mind that even though others appear to us as healthy and having the “good life,” everyone’s life is unfolding in unexpected, unplanned, and deeply personal ways. We all wrestle with good and distressfully bad situations and human conditions every day.
I suggest that much of our time be spent taking comfort in our souls. I have a strong and intelligent determination within my mind to make sense out of my illness and weaknesses so I question myself so that I may zero in on my troubles which will in turn help shape my faith so that I can heal from the heart and soul. I hope that I can gain an advantage over this disease; and in the days ahead, I may live comfortably with daily challenges.
