    I've just been informed by Social Security that I am no longer considered disabled according to their rules and will lose all support in a couple of months. I've never worked in my life, never able to maintain a strict schedule or cope long term with the chronic pain, irritable bowel and insomnia. It always inevitably leads back into chronic depression and mania. I can do a little, but then I have to follow up with resting for a day.

    They don't have a majority of my physical issues on file from doctor's reports which is a problem, as I was considered disabled for mental issues... but they were caused by the physical issues in the first place, just haven't been able to find a doctor who understands or properly tests for them yet.

    Of course, one should expect to read such a letter on one's anniversary of baptism, amirite? (Luke 22:31) “Simon, Simon, look! Satan has demanded to have all of you to sift you as wheat.

    I just wanted to say that I love this forum and am thankful for the time I've been able to spend with everyone I've met here. ❤️Before I inevitably regress into insanity and say and do things which I will surely regret.

    A plane went down in Athens Jarkata Sea. 184 people were in it, including some high individuals in the finance department in Indonesia. Not a speck of a word on the news this morning. It seems easy for them to get enveloped in a subject. And then repeat themselves.

    Saturday, I'll be going to the funeral of the grandson of a sister in our old congregation, who was shot and killed. She raised him like a son, and he was only 20. It's just so senseless.

    Last Sunday I had two talks in Northern Spain, so we stayed in a rural B&B with a farm. The site was wonderful and the owners were extremely nice to us. Then when we were leaving we found out they are JWs.

    I actually exhibited the signs of meekness today.  I'm still in shock.  I was actually patient and didn't retaliate.  Surely this was Jehovah holding his hand over my mouth, cause that didn't happen alone

    Well, it has been one long day. Brought my adopted spiritual mom for a doctor’s appointment 3 hours away. Handicapped Dad came along for the ride. 😊😊. 
     
    Get there and find out that it was tomorrow. The receptionist had told mom repeatedly it was Tuesday when appointment was made. 
     
    Neither mom or I am happy about this as we have to do this all over tomorrow. 😭😭😭😭
     
    As dad came along, I have to get out his walker each time he gets out and his homemade board thingy that he steps up on to help him get back in my Trailblazer each time. 
     
    With my bad knees it makes for a long day. 
     
    I love him dearly, but I asked mom to see if dad could stay home tomorrow. He had already made sure he knew what time we ar3 leaving.              I know I’m so evil 😈. 
     
    Round trip it’s 250 miles 😳😳😳😳😳
     
    Back on the road again. 
     
    What I’m sad about is too exhausted for the meeting tonight (got home after 6 pm) and no service tomorrow. 
    At least I can listen in.
     
    Sorry for the as usual book. 
     
    But I’m sincerely hoping this doctor will help her out.

    I ended up in the ER after the meeting today.  An elderly sister needed some shampoo and asked me to take her to the store.  I passed out twice in the store, twice in the ambulance and three or four more times in the ER.
    Every time someone attempted to sit me up, I passed out.  So I finally asked them to please just let me lie flat on my back.  I didn't have a stroke or a heart attack, or a seizure. It wasn't my blood sugar.
    The ER doc thought I was just dehydrated.  But I don't think I was. My legs quit working just before I passed out the first time.  And I was completely paralyzed when I woke up in the ambulance.  Strange.
     
    They couldn't find out why I couldn't remain conscious in a vertical position, so after observing me for four hours and giving me a few bags of IV fluids, they finally said I could leave if I could sit up without passing out.  I could.  So I called Sister Linda/Loopy and asked if she could give me a ride back to my car. 
    She kindly rescued me and I made it home okay.
    All in all...
    A really strange way to spend a Sunday.

    Approaching
    (hopefully) the last bits of the visa progress... Got an appointment for my visa interview scheduled. Need to go through a full medical before which I am nervous over considering my medical history. Applying for an immigrant visa is not for the poor, the whole process medical included must have cost $1,200-1,400 so far!

    A 36 year old ELDER, with a seriously rock solid theo family background, beautiful wife, happy marriage, new home, trips around the world, very active in every way,... just took his own life and no one understands why.  There were no red flags, no known depression, no clues.  We are related.  I'm used to feeling sorry for myself, having a sub-standard life with non-believers BUT, in terms of pain, what pain could ever compare to this scenario??  A brother commented tonight "We may see more of this..." A reference to the times we live in.  It is terrifying to watch  a "stable" one fall.  May Jehovah help us all.  PLEASE, pray for our elders, we need them, each and every one of them.
