Thank you Richard! I really needed to be reminded of that! Thank you!

When I am reminded of people I depended on and lost some with the lack of love and understanding, I always went back to the words I loved, "On Christ the Solid Rock I stand all other grounds (or people) are sinking sand...the Anchor holds!" He is our anchor.

Vicki  I sorry to hear about what your going through I pray for you

and every one on here. My step kids have no part of my life

for over 25+ years , they say that they are serving God there

own way. not the Bible way. I like being on here for everyone

understands what going on and how you feel.

we are a big support group here. never give up on hope

I pray every night for this group.

I just wanted to say that I am so incredibly grateful for all of you! Struggling through this time in my life is very difficult and disappointing. To be able to connect with those that understand is incredible! I love you all! Thank you and I am continously praying for you!

Round 2 of broken heart. I guess it was partly due to me holding on to the hope that my boyfriend would want to get back together. This bandaged my heart since it was broken. We were still texting each other. He wants to be friends. I told him I would. I know he cares for me. I was just holding on to that hope that he would want to get back together.
He asked me to go see a movie tomorrow. It took all I had, but I turned him down, I need time to heal. We were together for almost 2 years. I asked him what his intentions were, if there was any hope in my wanting to get back together. He put it straight out. There would if it weren't for the seizures. That bandage of hope completely fell off and now I'm back to where I was when he gave up before.

Gretchen was a dear person, she dominated any conversation. I wish I could hear her talk just one more time.  The world has lost Gretchen to SUDEP.

Know this all, and be seizure free.

Hi everyone, I am new to the group and this site.  Vicki, you are tugging my little heart strings.  I just want you to know that I was in a relationship with a Christian man when we first found the tumor that started my epilepsy.  He couldn't take the stress of watching me seize and all the multitude of things that happened in that part of my journey. (Way too long to explain here.)  We were together for 3 years and had to part ways soon after surgery.  (Whew!  A very painful miracle.)  A year or so later I met a very gentle wonderful man who knew my story early since my best friend is his sister in law.  I am partially paralyzed from brain surgery and on our first hike together he lent me his poles and helped me down.  His spirit is gentle and his love language is service.

We got married, after 9 months of dating, 8 years ago and he has been wonderful and patient.  God knew who I needed and when I needed him and we were both ready.  It was so hard to feel like an outsider that no one could love or deal with, but in time my emotional wounds eased.  Then I met Robert.

We struggle in our marriage with things that other couples don't because of my health, but we are stronger in other ways as well. There are a lot of us who have struggled relationally because of physical ailments and it is humbling how our Lord sees our need and meets us where we are.  He loves us so so much it is astounding.  I have to take deep breaths everyday, look at my life and see the incredible beauty and privilege that I have.  Some days are harder than others and some days I can't at all, but He always brings me back to see His miracles.  His mercies are new every morning!!  I tell my daughter every night that we are so blessed that the Lord never forgets us and has so many thoughts of us throughout the day.  We are not forgotten and cast aside.  We are His children.  His love is life. One day we will all have perfect bodies that will never tire or break!!!

It took 13 yrs. but it finally happened and I was able to see my brother and the rest of my family without any rejection only blessed happiness and joy. I want to thank each and everyone of you for your prayer and support and I especially want to thank the Lord for blessing me with happiness and family love again.

I am so grateful for this group. It's hard hearing some of the things that others have gone through, yet seeing that I am not alone helps me. God is my strength, but I am not an island. He has put others around me to support me. Thank you all!

my wife has really been tested, I had a VNS implanted and removed. I had a second brain surgery but turned into meningitis. The I had a DVT for a car accident. And last year I had another DVT with them finding kidney cancer while there having to have the whole kidney removed. She has stayed strong through the last 18 years. God's patience.
