    the end.

    *Defeated, depleted, numb, transitioning...

    I came to express gratitude.

    However, before doing so, I looked at some of the old *entries, above. What an experience! I have brand new anxiety symptoms to show for it too ... BUT I made it! I still can't believe it sometime & it will take a little time to not feel fear occasionally, but I am lucky. I am grateful & thankful to God, and to all who prayed for me, & responded when I reached out. Thank you all - have a Blessed & Peaceful, Holiday Season.

    'transtioning' fear > hope

    Monday, September 21, 2009, 11:57 AM [General]

    Hi, I was so fearful when I first came 'here'.

    Broken, disillusioned & disappointed in some, it was difficult to cope with what lay ahead for me. Today, still tired & aching (I suspect from internalized stress), I feel different. More hopeful, definitely grateful. I took the advice & prayer of the very first response I got here at beliefnet. I prayed, did not give up hope (most of the time ;0), & tried to exercise patience. That person reached out through internet space & made a difference for me. Although my journey is not yet over - I can see the end (where there was none before). Grateful to God & to all who helped along the way - for those who are just beginning there own journey, keep the faith & be grateful.

    strange - a 'lingering numbness'

    Sunday, August 23, 2009, 3:50 PM [General]

    Strange thing. I have a 'lingering numbness'. The strength varies, but it is there ... persisting in the background.

    It's nearly a year now that I have been trying hard re: my circumstances & for my efforts I can see some light, although I am not in the clear as yet. I tried very hard, prayed very hard & kept at it (with help from members here at beliefnet as well!!). Now, hard as I try to fight this numbness, feel gratitude, 'feel belief', it changes which I do not like. Maybe it's fatigue of some sort? I'll try again - nap, walk, pray.

    ps If anyone has better ideas, I would LOVE to hear them. God be with you all. ;0)

    thank you

    Friday, June 26, 2009, 2:33 PM [General]

    To all who prayed here & elsewhere for me, I am grateful.

    My prayer was anwered - the job letter arrived! There is much to do - & the habitual feeling of fear ... panic attacks return occasionally as I expect (time heals). However, I am just so grateful for this blessing at a time which was so critical. I am so grateful to God  ...I thought you should know. For those still waiting for answered prayers - pray, hope ... then wait patiently.

    There really is always hope ...

    Still hoping in spite of loss ... so depleted. Numb. Negociation is possibility, so what do I have to lose? I ask for strength, clarity from Uriel. Fatigue is a tricky business - affects thinking & judgement.

    I would love to be laughing a year from now with all the sadness & fear behind me.timbre


    ps: hr is taking 'forever' with job letter while we wear away& perish bit by bit ...

    The vise is on, I have heart palpitations ...

    & now I begin with the serenity prayer - the courage to deal with the next phase that is before me.

    I must have experienced a little miracle.

    When i came here, i was burdened, sad ..

    I am still fearful because my route has not changed - i am on a collision course unless things change, unless my prayers are answered. But, I genuinely feel that for all who glimpsed my words, said a prayer, sent good vibes my way - thank you! 

    Your 'energy'  came through when i glimpsed that 'glimmer of a chance' and I am grateful .. & very grateful to beliefnt for a 'place' like this where we can all gather. We can feel a little less alone in time of crisis. My prayers continue for those.

    Have a nice day all - God be with you.
