Well, God just works all over. We count our blessings, if we're wise. I'm going to my regular doctor to discuss a few things. I have a factor in my blood that can cause clotting and such. It has never caused any problems before, so just wanting to make sure all my ducks (and platelets!) are in a row.
Here's the amazing stuff:
If I hadn't had this eye thing happen, I'd never have gone to my opthamologist.
He would never have taken blood to check for Vitamin D deficiency (and I'm anemic again.)
I would never have started Vit. D supplementation under supervision.
My pain level has decreased by 50%...at least. My flexibility and mobility are INCREASED. My labrador, who usually stands firm by the side of the bed in the a.m. so I can lean on her to get up, is flabbergasted. I get up with little to no stiffness.
So, now, I can tell those of you with inflammatory diseases and arthritis to make sure you're getting enough of Vit. D3.....you can get it in Omega 3 (good ones) capsules, salmon....and maybe you will improve as well. Research this. Apparently, people with inflammatory diseases are notoriously low in Vit. D.
Then, I am working with a church on two murals. For some reason, I click with all of these people. For some reason I am led to tell them about my eye, and my lupus. I don't mention any health issues to clients. It turns out one of the pastors AND his wife have lupus....they are both suffering terribly with it. I can't help but think the Holy Spirit brought all of this together for mutual encouragement. What are the chances?
