As we face many storms faith is like an anchor that keeps us from drifting and casting away in order to continue our journey, sometimes facing frightening waves, sometimes on dry desert land or cold inhospitable weather .

Marathon of life: Finding out about Epylepsy

At least I knew what was attacking my body I knew what was happening yet it was so painful. Thyrotoxic episodes were exacerbating seizures.

In patients with established epilepsy (including generalized epilepsy syndromes), seizures and paroxysmal EEG
abnormalities can be exacerbated by hyperthyroidism In other patients, focal or generalized seizures occur only during thyrotoxic episodes. Seizure exacerbations usually remit when patients become euthyroid with treatment.

I´m a Lark With a Happy Song of Freedom!!!!!

I´m a lark that has crossed boundaries.... becoming free of fowler snares, I have a voice... I have a calling, a song in my heart......Would you care to hear?
There´s life after abuse: whether it be sexual, emotional , physical, labor or religious abuse, you name the kind. It just will never be the same..... but life can still be good. Don't keep it in darkness, shine divine light on it.Tell the truth.....
Open your mouth and speak words of freedom and deliverance, help others too. Put your head up high. May forgiveness flow so you can spread your wings and flight, eyes focused on what´s ahead, a new beginning towards God given destinies leaving those manipulative, castrating cages behind.
For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 Corinthians 3:17
