After a week of illness and injury, I am overjoyed to be physically well again.
The lambs took care of me when I was down for the count the other morning.
Wolfberry superjuice, homemade chicken noodle soup with Thieves essential oil, and my coffee.
I was so sick I only drank half a cup of coffee that day.
That should let y’all know how sick I was!
I broke down and went the doctor, more for a diagnosis than to get any prescription. I wanted to know what this monster was so I could attack it with the proper essential oils and supplements.
The funny thing?
Of course they said it’s a virus.
But the blood work showed I am perfectly healthy. No bacteria. No virus. No nothing.
This week has been rough. When I tagged this picture earlier online, I used the hashtag #spiritualwarfare because I didn’t know what it was.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12
I popped my back Monday morning when I picked up Alex to carry him downstairs. I spent the day on the sofa, attempting to keep everyone on task while popping essential oil capsules.
When I woke up Tuesday, my back was much better, but my hips were excruciating. My husband said it was probably from compensating for my back pain. Could be. I spent another half day on the couch.
I thought I was getting headachey and sore from all the rain and storms. The barometric pressure affects me.
Praise Him in the storm!
Then I got really sick. Like fever, headache from hell, aches kinda sick. I felt like someone had punched me in my armpits. It was so weird. I could barely stay upright and couldn’t function.
The house was a mess. No school was accomplished. Chaos.
Then I went to the doctor (to get that diagnosis to know which essential oils to take. “I had a virus.” Always their answer since they don’t know!).
I took another capsule when I got home and spent the day in bed. Also oregano on my spine. Another blend on my spine and chest. Thieves on my feet.
My Feel Better Capsule:
I felt better in the evening and even went to my youngest daughter’s soccer practice and out to dinner with the family.
More essential oils before bed.
I woke up Friday right as rain. Energetic and cheerful. Pain free.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
Praising Jesus and having a new appreciation for those who are in constant pain or have chronic illness. Jesus brought you to my mind. I pray for you. I don’t know how you live with it. Just one week of it did me in. I think He wanted me to know what it’s like for some people. Now I can relate.
