Asking for prayer please

I am in so much physical pain, I almost can’t bear it. My doctor has ordered tests, ultrasound, MRI, a repeat mammogram because my recent routine one was ‘inconclusive,’ and my doctor has referred me to a spine clinic. But all of these tests and appointments are days and weeks away. Meanwhile, the pain is growing worse.

A couple of Saturdays ago, I was in so much pain that my husband took me to the hospital emergency room. The ER doctor gave me an injection for the pain but it made little difference. They also took Xrays, which were inconclusive.

Right now, my husband is almost 200 miles away in Texas at a Veterans’ medical clinic. He is being treated for prostate cancer that has invaded his lymph gland system. I need to be healthy and strong for him. Please pray for my husband too!

I’m sorry to be a downer. I just need help. We have three rescue dogs that I am taking care of by myself. Sometimes when the pain is very intense, I involuntarily cry out, which is scaring our poor dogs.

What is causing this horrible pain? I don’t know and my doctor doesn’t know, which is why I need tests. About 21 years ago I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease in my neck and in the lumbar region of my spine. My doctor wanted me to have surgery then, to repair my damaged discs, but my insurance company would not approve it. Maybe this pain is from that, getting worse over the years.

By the way, the injuries to my spine were caused by extreme abuse. This pain is reminding me of that horrible abuse, which is a trigger for my PTSD.

Thank you for reading. Thank you for caring. Thank you for praying. Although I am 100% unworthy, apart from my faith in Christ, I have witnessed phenomenal miracles in response to prayer. So I know what a difference prayer can make. God bless you. I am praying for God to bless everyone who reads this and prays. ❤

    I am so sorry to hear about everything that’s going on in your life. Please, don’t feel like you have to apologize. The least we can all do is pray for you and your husband 🙏 Do you have someone you can reach out to near you? Not just online, but someone close by?

      Thank you so much. Yes, we do have some caring friends in the area. I don’t like to bother people, but if I absolutely have to have help, it’s comforting to know they are there.

        They’re your friends, they won’t be bothered, really 🙂 You would do the same for them. Reach out if you have to, your friends will worry about you if you don’t.

        I’ll add you both to my prayers. Take care of yourself ❤️ God bless ❤️

    God will see you through this trying time. Remember that he’s always with you so all you need do is call out his name. When it seems like the world is crashing down around you, you can be confident of his presence. Sometimes it takes a while for the answers we want right now and that’s because God wants our dependence on him to grow within us. He never intentionally throws obstacles in our way without including a strong dose of patience. I will continue to pray for you, your husband and your dogs. He is the great physician. Hang in there and ask him for strength to get through it.

          Thank you. After my husband’s radiation treatment today, he called and told me that he is at the spine clinic in Amarillo, the same one that I have a new patient appointment with on May 27. My husband has spine issues too, mostly due to a break that happened when he was jumping out of an airplane over Vietnam. The spine clinic has helped him so much, I have hope they will be able to help me, too.

    I wish you could give a better report. Pain isn’t the best of visitors to have at anytime. It’s very selfish, taking your attention away from everything else. I’m having a bit of difficulty with my left hip. It feels good for the most part; however, sudden movement causes discomfort. It feels similar to what I used to experience prior to me getting a hip replacement on the right hip almost nine years ago.

    Your pain sounds much worse than mine. You’re in my prayers, friend in Christ. I’m sending up prayers for you and your groom for life. God bless you both.

    Lord God, I second the prayers of our brothers and sisters offered here. Lord God, work in Linda and in her husband. Lord God, we know that You do not promise to bring us to Yourself physically whole but we do know that You will give us what we need to ensure. Lord God, help Linda and her husband to endure, thank You for giving Linda a kind, authentic and vulnerable heart to know when to ask for prayer. Lord God, I do not know what healing looks like for either of them but I do know that You hear and answer prayer. Lord God fill Linda and her family with the peace of Your Presence. Thank You for my Mama Linda who loves You and knows she is nothing and has nothing without You. Lord God, I pray for Linda’s puppies, You have called us to care for Your Creation which includes precious doggies so Lord please give Linda the strength she needs to care for them. Lord God, thank You for the care and companionship her puppies give to her! Lord God, be at the forefront of Linda’s mind so that when PTSD triggers, You will be there in her mind to extinguish the fiery arrows. Lord God, thank You for Linda. We trust You and love You and it’s Your Name Jesus we pray. Amen.

    Of course you have my prayers, no need to apologise. I’m so sorry that both you and your husband are having to face such hardships. Even things that may seem small, like scaring the dogs, I know how important it can seem. I will be spending time praying for you every night and morning. I hope that it makes you feel a little better to know that you have devoted support all the way across the sea here in The Netherlands. You are loved, you are cared for, never forget that. Through prayer – we can fight this, and we won’t give up until we have.

    This is so upsetting, no one should suffer pain. I am just now catching up with some of my favorite bloggers and now am reading this. I am happy to hear you are feeling better. I’m still keeping you and your family in my prayers. In times like these we need to all keep love and prayers continuing every day to counter act the ugly and cruel things that happen in the world. I hope today you and your husband and furry family members are all feeling peace, love and no pain. God bless you and yours.

    Linda, I have you and your husband in my prayers. Have you heard about Tapping or Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)? It’s being used to treat pain and PTSD. It has helped me with Fibromyalgia. There are free resources on line. I wish you the best!

      Yes my husband does EFT and it helps him a lot. I tried both EFT and tapping with the same therapist, and it actually made me feel worse. I learned from Dr. Bessel van der Kolk’s book, The Body Keeps the Score, that people like me, with complex ptsd, who have had multiple traumas of many different types over many years, often react negatively to EFT. He recommended neurofeedback treatments — NFT — for people such as I.

      I had approximately 30 NFT sessions in 2017 and it made a world of difference! So much so, that my therapist said he believed I did not have PTSD anymore!!!

      But after this one year plus of pandemic trauma, and my husband being diagnosed with cancer, and now my painful neck and shoulder injury, I think I could benefit from a few more neurofeedback sessions. it’s going to have to wait awhile though, probably at least until my husband’s daily radiation treatments are done, near the end of June.

      Thank you so much for your prayers and your astute suggestions. Hmmm… I wonder if I could benefit from EFT or tapping now? My neurofeedback treatments made such a huge difference, maybe that will now be different, too. I am going to try it and see what happens. Thank you!
