Emotional Support

Patient in Affliction
Patient in Affliction

I have found myself, for the most part, alone in this journey which has had its share of struggle. But, I’ve always felt God’s presence. Thanks to reading the Living Waters blog 💙

“My God turns my darkness into
Light.” Psalms 18:28

For whatever reason, when I’m in the hospital I’m alone. My parents are gone. My friends? Busy or will catch up with me when I get out. To give them a call.  My feelings aren’t hurt but I envy people with a support system. To be in the waiting room during recovery of different procedures. My dear sister and brother-in-law, who are dealing with their own health crises (a lot better than I am I must say) take me to the doctors, hospital, procedures & try to come vist me in the hospital.

It hit me in February this year when the doctor asked what my family’s name was so he could let them know how the procedure went. I had to tell him I was there alone, my family was busy, and he had this funny look on his face like really?

Two times now my condition has been bad enough for the “who’s your next of kin question.”

Why am I alone? Because God has taught me to lean on Him. His word is truth and as I read on Living Water blog,

“The Lord will be your everlasting light and your days of sorrow will end. ” Isaiah 60:20″
