I also think of my own disabilities and know that my lack of spelling is not my fault and that my lack of coordination comes because I have a dreaded disease Ankylosing Spondylitis and the double condition with bipolar disorder, but both are under control, The AS has done so much damage that my upper body suffers level 4 or 5 round the clock, but my therapist says “I’ve put him out of a job.” So, the bipolar will never get any worse, and the AS will never get any worse. I take medications for what comes to thousands of dollars every month in order to keep these diseases in check. When I had to go off of one of the drugs for three months before my knee replacement in order to allow for proper healing, I found my pain level rose to level 7 and sometimes 8. My wife says I think about myself too much, but wouldn’t a person think of self with such conditions? Well, I am fortunate because God has been working overtime with me. About seven years ago I suffered three life-threatening situations, one; poisoned by my own medication (not suicide),
two; hemorrhage of my duodenum, and three; renal shutdown. I survived. I am alive, and I know Christ my Lord and Savior, and I know God, and I have come full circle. Every situation approaching death, there was clergy present, and even recently, my own pastor came to pray over my total knee replacement. See, through all the pain and tears, God was there, and now I believe. via I think about my Daughter!
