I just wanted to let everyone know I got some good news today from my doctor. The lump in my breast is gone and in its place scar tissue is forming. My oral chemotherapy medicine appears to be working. Thanks so much for all your love and prayers.
Today before going to my doctor’s appointment a lady in my Bible Study asked me if I was keeping a positive outlook on life. I told her I was. She said it was great to hear that I wasn’t allowing it to get to me or fall into a deep depression over it.
After speaking with her for a minute I got to thinking about what she said. All the things she asked me about were things I went through when I had epilepsy. I struggled terribly with a negative outlook. I fell into the “why me?” trap hook line and sinker. I attempted to quit and give in on a daily basis. For years I fought more with myself thru all these things than I did my seizures.
It was after I found out that 90% of my seizures were stressed caused that I had to end the nonsense and get to living what I knew to be true. I couldn’t worry any more, I couldn’t harbor my anger towards the situation life had dealt me. I had to straighten up and stay strong. What a wonderful thing it was back then as well as now to watch God do just that for me. He supplied me with the strength required to endure.
