Do you know someone?

Do you know someone
With a chronic illness?....
They could have, Lupus, R.A.,
M.S. or like myself Fibromyalgia..
There are so many more the list is endless..
Would you like to understand them better ?....I
would suggest that this could be the best thing
that you could do forTHEM and YOURSELF.
You never know YOU could be the one needing
a understanding heart.
This is a great little story at Butyoudon'tlooksick.com .
I think this will help you out and the person you love and care about.
I think that makes it worth it.

My husband has fibromyalgia and so many people just don't understand all he goes through with it. Most people who get it are women...but when men gets it for some reason it is worse they say. I just know I and my kids see what he goes through with it. He needed to go to the hospital last week from being in so much pain...he was groaning in pain...but he won't go cause there is nothing they can do for him. It just drives me nuts that so many say they "know" what he needs to do to help himself but they are no doctor and don't know the first thing. I could really get on a soap box here but I won't. Thank you for putting this post on here.

I did it for me and others who sometimes, even though we are Christians stuggle with those who sometimes just *don't get it*.
Hoping this will shed some light.
You are sure right about this..and part of it is...These are Chronic diseases,maladies....and it is hard on others too as they probably don't know how to react..etc,,,and sometimes it is pure selfishness..but the desire of my heart and yours, I know..is that the Lord gets the GLORY from our life.
Hope the article helped..I do know you have struggles too..and pray you are doing better this week...rash and all...
I would think it would be harder as a guy having this...as a woman most people think we are just WIMPS...inconsistent in life etc..
Right now I am in a flare and cancelling commitments...praying people have a understanding heart..the Spirit is willing but the flesh is weak...prayers for you and your husband.



Thanks Deby. Great post. connie from Texas
