All I know is that it can cause you to see yourself as fat when you are actually very thin, or make you see yourself as not as obese as you actually are.

Have you tried doing a google search about it or something?

Good luck to you!

AW, I was praying this morning... talking to God, and I was hurting...physically, and have been hurting physically..my joints, my hips, my chest, adn the pain is getting worse. It seems the more my soul is restored, the more peace I feel, the more physical pain I feel. I have gained weight, my stomach sticks out and droops...very yucky...as I ususally stay thin.

He said to me...you can leave it all behind, and I will heal your body. It was almost as if He was showing me, that my soul had made my body the way it has become. I hold onto to things, people, stress, do not let anything go..and I do not trust anyone but me..but that is changing. I am rigid, hold everything inside...and I physically HURT from this.

So I asked him to heal me. I am going to daily re-new my mind by praying, staying in His word, and trust him to heal me. I am going to exercise, etc...but the absolut awesome thing? is that I am doing it for God, not for me, becasue I know it will be used for His glory. It is almost like putting new wine into old wineskins...they will burst.
So my thought is...distorted body image..may be bulimia for some...or if very overweight...lack of love for oneself, misplace worthiness...I am not veryknowledgeable in the scientific portion of this...but God is. For me personally, I am gong to continue to feed my soul, and trust God to heal my body...give me a new one so to speak. I know you are a believer, so maybe this will make sense to you. My thoughts on distorted boy imaging for what it is worth.

OMW:

What you have said really spoke to me. I am quite a distorted person myself. You have given me alot of food for thought. A lot of truth; lots of OUCH. Thank you very much. I think God is already using this.. for me anyway.

MAmaC, I was going to talk to you about this...not as a judgement, but I am so excited. I think I may just take God at his Word, and take a year to write about it.
I am going to step out, almost like taking off a body suit from the inside out. And I want to use it as my testimony...God willing, for all women.

I am glad it spoke to you, but that is God, not me. He is so awesome, and faithful, and loves us so much. He works miracles in many ways.

Thanks everyone...
ia mstruggling So much these days, having CHRONIC pain, having No Job, needing surgery and specialists Icannot go to becasue of no insurance, and Not knowing whether I should even be lookng for a job in my present state of health. My unemployment benefits are over this week, i dont fit in any of my clothes, even my "fat clothes" ar e disturbingly snug.. i have been praying and trying to keep busy, but I feel like Im running out of resources, andam getting scared.
I guessI'll keep praying, dn try "working Out" again... im justso achy all the time with chills and pain that these meds dont relieve...
(((( Sigh....)))))

My I be nosey and ask what your medical condition is? I don't recall if you said, but I am forgetful. It's called "fibro fog".

Do you have other options to employment? Maybe apply for some benefits or aid?

Mostly, keep prayin. Sometimes answers don't come immediately. But, they will come in God's timing. He does know what is goin on. I'll pray for you also. (I do write the names down so I don't forget. lol.)

Come over to Chronic Pain and talk to us so we can give you a little daily strength.

Whooops, ive forgotten to check my own thread..ive been real concerned ith a lad on the support side...
Anyway..MamaC
I have diabetes (type I) for over 23 years, I have herniated dics in my neck and lower back, I have/had diabetic retinopathy that almost caused me to go blind
I have been "coping' with Chronic Pain in all of my joints, and Mucles for about 3 years, andit keeps getting worse, and worse.
I am lacking energy and strength.
i have something called Frozen Shoulder, that is extremely painful, and crippling feeling. I need help getting dressed and some other embarrassingthings.
I have had protein and blood in my urine for a while, but dont know what thats about yet..(Urology appt. next week) they say with most people that it's microscopic... for me it is NOT.
I have gastropresis, and dudenitis... and NASTY reflux issues.
Also anxiety and depression that fluctuates and vaires.
So, thats it in a NUT shell, and Im sure i probably forgot something, but at this point whats the difference??
One of my best friends says that my medical chart at my docs office must be a dictionary....
Not that far off, but it could be worse. I still manage to do groceries by myself, but i complain about it.anddo struggle. I force myself to go for walks, but cannot handle walking/hiking over 3 miles anymore, and I gues thats not so bad.. I do push myself hard, when I push myselfI pray everyday, in my own ways, while doing the dishes, or as I walk out the door,when Iam driving , orwhile Im brushing my teeth, and before i fall asleep.
It does help. I always thought of myself as more of a spiritual person than a religious person, but Prayer has always been a big part of my life, I remember ding it before I can remember knowing about church, or religion(s). I remember being around 3-4 in my bedroom talking to what I called fairies, and praying.
and I felt really connected to something when I was outside, In a garden, or reservoir.
I am in a lot of pain right now, So i bette go put my jammies on, and get ready for bed after i attempt some stretching.I suddenly got very very tired, So I will listen to my body,and go to bed now.
Thoughts and prayers with you all!!!
Thanks so muc hfor being here!!!

AW:

Lady, we have got to talk. I hope your hubby gets the book for you today. It's big, but I'm sure you will have no problem getting thru it. I cannot say or give a diagnosis. Don't know if fibro is what you have or not. But, we do sound alot alike w/ the illnesses we do have. I am so sorry. I feel for ya. Let's talk after you get into the book.

Thanks MamaC...
I had such a rough night last night, or actually early AM, it was so intense, and just bad, and draining...
I spoke to my mom breifly , she was on her way t othe dentist and called to check in, adnShe told me that he MD said SHE has fibro about 2 years ago!!!!
I was stunned!! i said " YouDooOOO??/ well what are you doingfor it/about it, why didnt you tell me???
She said She has been aachy for years andyears, and"its not that bad."
after getting off the phone wit hher, I am remembering that she has an instant denial reflex thing with certain things, and perhaps this isnt too severe for her, but I know she takes celebrex, and some other meds, but I didnt know she was diagnosed wit hFibro....
I will need ot buy th at book.. I have enouhg for the rent, and a few bux left over, so maybe I can swing it... we have my step son this weekend, so a trip to the bookstore would be fun for him, and I can go to the health section.

AW:

What you said about your mom makes me roll with laughter. It's because I am reading about your mom and seeing my mom. My mom can repress anything and everything. And she seriously believes it. I called her when my 1st daughter turned 14 and I apologized for being such a pain as a kid. She stood there and said she didn't know what I was talking about. All of her kids (4) were good kids. I heard my dad in the background slap the table and roll into laughter and say bullshit. Made her mad coz she truly believes that. So, not to make fun or your mom, but my mom is right there w/ the reprsesion thing. My mom has fibro also and wonders why she doesn't hurt and I'm a mess. Guess it has to do w/ the levels of stress we endured. Stress was thought to be the cause, but they are now coming out w/ other causes.

I paid $20 for my book at Border's Books (expensive place). If you'd like let me know and we can go thru it together. Might be fun. I've searched and well used my book, but never just gone thru it page by page.

Hope your day is relatively pain free and that your spirits are up. Box the cat if you have to so you will have some peace. lol. I love hearing about him.

I never made it to borders this weekend, with the unexpected drama from "uncle", and the unexpected visit to the in-laws, that lasted 400 years, it was nice, but good greif It tokk 1,000 hours to get out the door, andwe still never made any decisions about uor trip to California with them (I'll be filling the XanaxPrescription FOR SURE!!! ) LOL.
but seriously...
Anywaaaaay.
I m going to run lots of errand tomoroow, and that book is on the top of the list!!! If It turns out that I do not have it, I'll give it to my mom,Not that she'll read it, becasue "theres' nothing wrong withher!!""
LOL
Her denial is NOW a source of laughter for me, but boy, am i grateful that i dont live with her everyday, even though she calles me daily... the difference in zip codes made all the difference in the world...
she too said I wasnt a bad kid.. but she did once admit that my "hormones, and diabetes were kinda wacky for a while"
anyway... the cat did mellow out, Jake played with him so much this weekend he's pooped!!!
He seemed to be looking for him after we brought him home, but I held him, and gave him some cat nip, and he's been sprawled out on the floor for a while now. Im sure he'll be up, wreaking havoc at around 4 am though!!!
HOpe youre doing ok today...
Ill pop in after i run errands tomorrow, with my new book in hand!
(((((((Luv, prayers, hugs))))))))

MamaC,
How are you feeling today???
How is everyone feeling today????

I have a cold brewing in yet another snowstorm, Hopefully it will NOT turn into the flu, but with my luck, well, who knows???

II got up early and spent a lot of money I shouldnt have.
BUT, MamaC, I founf the ONLY copy of that book at Borders Books and Music, I also got a new novel Titled " The devil wears Prada." by Lauren Weisberger.

My pain today is pretty astounding, but i managed to run all my errands, and haul all of the gorceries, storage totes, laundry detergent, etc, Up 2 flights of stairs by myself ,all while trying t okeep my poor horny kitten in the apartment.. Made home made chicken soup and Biscuits for dinner, and did most of the dishes after empying the damn litter box for the 1,000,000,000 time in 3 days.
I did manag to squeeze in a manicure, and a cup of coffee for my slef today, and Ya' know that was theee best manicure, and cup of coffee Ive had in a long time.and Im realy trying very hard to not like this show "medium" the acting is horrific, but it's like a train wreck, i watch it every week now, and like complaing about it, yet, I like talking about it too.. but it will never be as good as law & order "Dun-Dun" < insert sound. 🙂 anyway.... I either need ot do laundry, or ive lost a couple pounds. I probaly just need ot stop re-wearing the same 2 pairs of pants that fit, becasue theyre getting stretched out, but , today, I'll let myslef think Ive lost a couple pounds...
