It’s late and feeling helpless

Not sure why I am posting this late. Maybe cause I don’t have anyone to call this late that I can talk to. It’s almost midnight and I was awaken to Daniel literally screaming from the other room. He has already taken all the meds he can tonight. This has been one of our worst nights ever in a long time. It was so bad that I tried to make him understand that he needed to calm down for the kids sake, because they would have been scared to death to see him like this. How do you tell someone who is in that amount of pain to calm down? How do you put yourself in their shoes?How do you truly understand what they are going through?

How do you get through a night watching someone you love scream in pain knowing there is nothing you can do for them? I can’t really describe what it’s like watching a grown man turn into someone so helpless. Sometimes it’s really hard being the strong one. Working full time, going with many a night with no sleep sometimes starts to take a toll on you. My blog, my readers are sometimes the only thing that keeps me going. Sometimes I don’t understand why God has given us this journey but I truly believe everything happens for a reason.I received some very good news today at work so naturally it was the perfect time for the Devil to take his toll. I’m not asking you to feel sorry for us tonight, I am only asking you to do one thing! Turn to the one you love and tell them you love them, never take the time you have with them for granted. Be thankful for your health and enjoy the things you have always wanted to do.(enjoy the little things). You never know what’s around the corner.

(for those of you who are new to my blog my husband has AS you can read our “about me“)

    You guys are truly amazing! I am sitting here at a Blogging Conferance reading every single one of your comments , crying.

    This is exactly why I blog. To engage with real moms, real women, going through similar situations coming together to be there for each other. What a wonderful online community we have here.

    Daniel is doing much better this week, it seems that when the weather gets bad, cold, rainy snowy etc. that is when he gets worth. It’s always an up and down.

    For those of you going through similar situation , I pray that God will give you the strength to get through each day. The peace that everything happens for a reason. Even though God may be out of sight , Love is waiting in the wings!

    We are praying for you and your family. God knows your needs and your heart along with the number of hairs on your head. He will make a way when there seems to be no way! He is sovereign and will continue to meet your needs! 2 Corinthians 4:16 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. 17 For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, 18 as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

    Opening yourself to your readers opens yourself to gaining a trust and a relationship. I love this post because your guard is down and I can feel that sadness in your words. Wonderful!
