I have felt pretty horrible the past few days. Mix that with a 7 year old that develops a stomach bug for two days .. and not making it to the bathroom in time, and you have lots of fun cleanup with a pounding head. I just can't seem to shake this tension headache, and it causes such pain in my neck/head and achiness and nausea, that my Christmas has pretty much been a write-off. All the traditions I normally did with my kids went out the window. How depressing.

I sent the fam to the Christmas family get together today on their own. It's been a quiet day, other than the ringing in my head. My first Christmas alone.

Hoping the rest of the holiday will improve and I will be able to enjoy some time with my family. I was hoping to at least get over to Starbucks for our Christmas morning coffee & hot chocolates, but didn't manage that either.

    So sorry, how painful to miss out on special time with you family. Praying God encourages your heart today. Looking forward to seeing you in Leavenworth, headache or not!

    Dear child of God,
    I'm so sorry this time of year has been a struggle for you. I know Jesus tells us not to worry or be afraid, but at the same time, it's
    confusing. I had to make new Christmas traditions, I'm not able to keep up the pace, "yet" (ms takes a toll). I will not give up hope for you or me or anyone else with ms. I won't stop praying for us until my breath returns to the Lord.

    John16:22-23 So you also are now in anguish, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice,and no one will take your joy away from you. On that day you will not question me about anything. Amen,amen, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in my name He will give you.
    God bless!!

    Debbie, still dealing with the headaches.. I can't quite shake them for longer than a day. They definitely make life challenging. I am waiting for an appointment with a physiotherapist in hopes to get some relief.
