A quick update

Sorry it has been so long since I have been here. Thank you for your e-mails and prayers. They have been much appreciated. Well I can't say much has been determined in the area of what is going on in me health wise. They have determined that my heart rate is way to high which somehow helped caused some kind of neurochemistry thing in my brain which triggered panic attacks. All that to say, I still don't have all the answers as to why this all happened. They have put me on a couple different prescriptions which help but knock me for a loop.
Needless to say I will continue to be a little quite here on the blog as I get back up to speed. Sad to say, I have not even been doing CVS or Walgreens much the last few weeks :o( I am sure I have missed out on lots, but that's OK.
If you feel led, here are some specific prayer requests:
~That an answer as to why this is all happening can be found.
~That I can eventually taper off all medications
~One of the meds makes me extremely fatigue, gives me an almost constant headache, and causes lightheadedness (I can't even tell you how many walls I have ran into in the last couple of weeks :o) ) pray that I can have the energy to just get the household chores and meals done. I am not asking anything beyond that. I just want to be able to take care of my family.

Thank you all for your continued prayers and love!

I just found your blog and I am so happy that I did! Two of my girlfriends and I are starting a cooking club. We are making freezer friendly meals ahead (on our own) and then exchanging them once a month. I am really excited about the possiblities.

Finding your blog has been such a blessing already. Although you are no longer doing your cooking days, I would love to see more freezer friendly recipes posted on your site.

Thank you so much already!

Oh, you poor thing! I have a friend who had EXACTLY the same symptoms you do and it turned out that she had a virus that affected a portion of her heart muscle that caused release of adrenaline, panic attacks, super fast heart beats, etc. She took various meds to control the resultant symptoms and today she is absolutely perfectly completely fine! You will be, too!
