So many times I look at my life and wonder where I would be now if I had never gotten sick? I am 40 years old now and just never thought my life would have turned out this way. I’m living with my parents. I’m single and have no children. But I have a loyal dog! I really thought I would make a great mother. I love kids. I was never asked to be anyone’s godmother, which really hurt. I often wondered why no one wanted me to be their child’s godmother. And I’ve never been a maid of honor. Why? I’m not sure. The closest I ever got was to be a wedding coordinator for my roommates wedding. That was such an honor. I got to make sure things went smooth on her wedding day. It was really fun. After that, I had thought about becoming a wedding planner.
But after college, I sought out jobs in the counseling industry and took a job where the atmosphere was hostile between staffers and no one was on the same page with the kids in the group home. It was a hostile work environment because the kids would ask me to do something against the rules and I’d say no. Then the other staffers would say yes. It was crazy. From there, I took a job in the office as a customer service rep. Then the nightmare started. I started with my migraines all over again (just like in high school). I was exhausted and in pain. I ended up quitting that job because my boss was making it a very difficult place for me to work. I was being bullied and now a days, that would probably be punishable. I just didn’t know what to do at the time. From there I took a few other jobs in the office. I lost my jobs to my illness. I would work for 2 years and they would end up firing me because I would miss too much work. It was a repetitive cycle. Then I decided I would work on my Master’s to find something that I loved to do. Perhaps that would make life easier. So I got my Master’s in Human Resources and in Counseling. I couldn’t do anything with them either. I found my dream job at a DUI facility. I was running group sessions for clients who were convicted with DUI’s. I loved the job and I was being groomed for bigger and better things.
My life took a turn for the worse when I started having stomach pains. It got worse and worse, I went into the ER. After the third night in a row of me being in the ER, they finally took it seriously. I think the fact that I looked like I was 6 months pregnant made things a little alarming for them. Come to find out I had a bowel obstruction. I went in for the surgery. When I came out of it, my oxygen levels dropped below 50% and my heart rate shot up to 180-200 bpm. They knew something was wrong and took me back into the operating room. Come to find out I contracted something in my lungs, in the OR. It was so serious that they ended up putting me in a medically induced coma. I was in a coma for 3 days. The doctors told my mom that chances are I wasn’t going to make it. THEN, my mom was in the waiting room of the ICU and a Spanish lady came up to her to ask if she could pray with her. My mom said yes. She asked if she could come in my room and pray over me. My mom agreed. We are believers and would welcome any help at that point. My mom said she prayed over me. After that, I began improving and the doctors had no explanation. My mom, dad and I do! We know the Lord had a hand in healing me. I was taken out of the coma and began healing after that. The lady asked if she could meet me. We said of course. She came in and prayed over me again. And I could feel her energy come right through my body. It was a warming sensation. I really started healing after that. I don’t know how to explain it. That was almost 3 years ago.
There’s more the story.
