Things Could Really Be Much Worse

I think nearly every part of my body itches. The doctor gave me medicine but IT ISN'T WORKING!!!
The insides of my ears even itch!

I have sores in my nose, on the side of my mouth, at the edge of my eye, all over my legs. To put it bluntly, I am a wreck! I think the thing that makes it worse is that I seldom have any type of ill health.  I have really been blessed.

I guess I have the choice of complaining or thanking God that He has blessed me with good health for so long. I think I will opt for the latter.

Things really could be much worse. I don't have some terminal disease. I can still get up and out and I'm not in severe pain (although itching can be quite uncomfortable). When it's all said and done, I guess I should be praising God for how much he has blessed me. I think I will stop and do that right now! Want to join me?

   Stopping to praise God for His goodness to me in the area of health, Gloria

Great attitude during this affliction of your body! I'll pray for you.

Thank you for praying for me, Tina. Many have been doing that and I can't tell you how much I appreciate it! I am feeling much better now (Sept. 10) but not quite
100%. I realize natural cures take longer and I believe God is answering prayers through the things He has created. Good to have friends who believe God answers prayer!!!
