How much longer... (kinda long)?

Posted by Becky on 1/28/99 at 00:00 (004081)

I have been dealing with this a long time and am almost only 27. I have just met a really nice guy and guess what he likes to do? Walk, hike, repel, hunt and all that stuff. He knows about my foot and is so dear about it. Anyway, my best friend and I are meeting for a weekend in Atlanta. What do you do besides shop in Atlanta? Movies, museam's? I tell you if this Ossatron doesn't work... I am so discouraged, makes me want to cuss.
For those of you familiar with the Bible, I just finished Job. Did he go through alot of testing, trials and tribulations or what? He made it through but I tell you this foot pain is for the birds. I mean the achiness in my foot is almost too much to bear. The only sure fire way of getting to sleep with no pain and waking up with no pain and going throughout part of the next day with little or no pain is when I take Mepregan. This is my drug of choice unfortunatly you can't function when you are on it for at least 12 hours. It does leave you with a slight headache though. Also it is for severe pain after surgery not for chronic pain use. MOst drugs make me tired so I only take Aleve now since Ibuprofen ate my stomach up. Aleve doesn't even touch the pain anymore. Only Mepregan. Luckily I am almost out or I might just decide to take the whole bottle and go to sleep, pain free, for a lonnggggg while

I mean, you guys I sat at lunch today just praising the LOrd that I wasn't having that dull ache like someone was ramming a big fat nail through the bottom of my heel. This pain free paradise lasted until this evening when I got home from work.
God is good and he is walking with me but the pain is lack for a better word, repulsive and makes me not want to live anymore.
Blessings and am hoping and praying that this Ossatron is going to take affect soon.

I am so sorry that you haven't found any relief. I know how you were looking forward to the Ossatron treatments helping you. Hopefully, it just hasn't kicked in yet. Please don't give up. I just figure that God gave me this pain for a reason. I am not sure what it is other than to understand what other people have to deal with and to learn paitience. Guess we must have a lot of paitience by now - ha! Please hang in there you have a lot of people pulling for you.

Dear Becky:

I taught the old testament last year to my Sunday School class. LIke you, I couldn't help but wonder what the point was to all my suffering. Now that I'm no longer in pain, every day is wonderful to me now. I feel like I can deal with anything as long as I'm not in constant physical pain. I had a lot of other problems as well. But the foot pain topped them all. I'd always prayed for help, for several years in fact. But it wasn't until I fasted and prayed that the answers to my problems came to me. I know that my attitude is a lot better than it used to be. I don't take physical comfort for granted anymore. A good day is a day without pain. I hope you find relief. I know how you feel.
