Prayer request for myself
« on: August 04, 2018, 09:08:45 pm »
Hi all,

    Sorry I haven't been very active this past week. Our AC unit stopped working last weekend; but was repaired on Monday. We are cool again.

     Tuesday and Wednesday were pretty rough days; one of the cats got into my office area and chewed through one of the power cords for my computer for work - a computer that I do not own. In return; I tried and made a futile attempt to repair it; something that did not work out.

      Because of that, I had a real bad anxiety attack that landed me in the hospital Tuesday afternoon; but because I take medication for a messed up back; they weren't able to help me at all. I saw my primary doc Tuesday afternoon and the PA put me on some antidepressants.

      Wednesday morning I was in trouble at work - I work from home and because I missed several days from the AC problems and anxiety problems - my employment was terminated.

       I used to have problems years ago with anxiety; but in the past 3-4 years it has been pretty manageable. Now it's just gotten to the point where it is a little out of control.

       My wife isn't always the most understanding when it comes to anxiety problems. I am on medications now that may take days or weeks until they start going into effect.

       I'm back to looking for work again - my doctor advised me because of my back to stay away from real strenuous and physical work - yet I haven't had the best experience with call centers.

       I appreciate all of your prayers. Bless you all.

Jedimatt, take care of yourself and your wife, first and foremost. I wish you Healing to reduce your anxiety and to bring forth a positive outcome in the days ahead.

Oh wow, that's a lot on your plate all at once!  I will definitely add prayers for you to my prayers for your wife and brother-in-law.

I'm so sorry, Matt. It sounds like you've had an awful week. I hope things will improve, soon.

My prayers for you Matt. Anxiety is an awful thing on top of everything else that is going on for you. I hope you can find some more work, thus time with a more sympathetic employer.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

That's a lot.  Holding you and yours up.
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

You are in my thoughts as you deal with all of this.  Hoping for positive outcomes very soon.

Thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers. I have 2 potential job offers that are work from home. It's been a real headache for me but if it's one thing I've learned is to keep filling out applications elsewhere once you have that job.
