Finding Out What Has Been Wrong With My Body

Mercy me...my precious readers....every time I get back on track with blogging, or pretty much anything in life my health continues to interrupt our life.  Ugh!  I am trying hard to keep upbeat about it but it does get old. Last year, I got horribly sick and ended up putting the kids in a local school for 2 months...that was a fail. It was a horrible experience to say the least but in some ways grateful because it made me realize even more our calling to homeschool. This is one reason I have been able to handle the frustration of my sickness again...there is no other option. God will equip us.

For years I have mentioned many times here how I have been under the weather with kidney issues, anemia, chronic fatigue, and even depression. These are just a few things...I have muscle problems, joint issues, and then began to have digestive issues and horrible pains in my left side of my abdomen when I ate. Then my roof of my mouth and gums kept swelling. I have been tested and I have gluten/wheat issues and they have been wrecking havoc on me.

I am in the process of going gluten free and it has been a journey. I am feeling a little better but still got a long way. 

As far as school we are a couple days behind but not too bad. We are going to plug away.  I find I have a hard time sticking to completing science and history. I do good to get all our main things done.

I hope all is well with you all.


  1. Praying for your health and I've gone through these issues in the past with my health and then my rough pregnancy. Looking back on all I went through, I can see how God used all those things (even the bad) to make me better or work for my good. That is such a worn-out phrase I know, but really........ALL things really do work together for our good lol! ;-) So funny how I hate hearing that when I'm sick or in a trial......but hindsight always proves it to be so. Praying for you my friend and sister in Christ!!

    1. Thank you my friend. I wish we lived closer. :)
