On Your Heart Tuesday

Hello everyone, what is on your heart today? Well, on my heart today, is self improvement.  I am in major need of a total overhaul. Every since I have been home from the hospital, after being in hospitals from my stroke for 22 days, I have really been going down hill. I am battling with physical issues, depression, anxiety, ect. They told me at the rehab hospital, that these things might happen several months after I got home. Boy, they sure knew what they were talking about. Also, there are some deep rooted issues I am dealing with concerning my body image, self worth, ect. So, I have decided, after much prayer, to take some steps, to get myself some help. I am going to join the fitness center at the rehab hospital where I was a patient, to get some much needed exercise. Also, at the rehab hospital, they have a stroke support meeting once a month, I am going to start attending those meetings.  They also offer at the rehab hospital, counseling, either from a pastor, or regular counselor. Dealing with issues about the stroke, and other issues that you may possibly be dealing with. I am calling today, to get more information about it. The last day that I was at the rehab hospital, a case worker came in my room and talked to me for a long time, about everything. She said, I have many open wounds from past experiences in my life, and now recent experiences, have given me fresh open wounds. She said that she truly felt like, I needed some counseling, so I could get help to close those wounds, so they could begin to heal. So, I am giving counseling some serious thought. I would appreciate your prayers concerning all of this. Blessings and love to you all.

I'm so pleased for you that you are seeking help. I do believe that having exercise will really help you esp. at the rehab centre. I also believe having someone to share your burdens with and talk things through will really help you too. We all need someone to listen to us and what we are going through. I continue to pray for you my friend. Hugs. xx

Praying for you Sweetie. Our bodies are amazing things, but sometimes they can get down right not very cooperative. I imagine exercise and counseling would help a lot.

Father I ask that you bless Denise. Touch her with healing for her heart, mind, and body. Show her how precious she is to You. Give her strength as she reaches out to others for help. Grant her peace. Let her feel your sweet presence when she greets the morning and throughout the day. Let her mind turn toward you in the night hours. Give her doctors wisdom and compassion. I thank you for the gifts she so willingly shares and the way she blesses others. Amen

A wise woman to see and do the things that can help you recover. I think all of the things that you are going to do are so awesome. Most of the time we let depression and etc. overcome us and then it becomes a bigger issue. I know that getting counseling can really be a huge step toward feeling better. You will be in my prayers and I know you are being guided and watched over as you heal.
Blessings to you!

I sweety. I am praying for you. I know sometimes it is really, really hard. But you know we have to trust. We have to share our burdens with our father. And sometimes we need to just talk it out with friends and other people that can help. And always remember Coco will always be there. I am so happy you have here. Stay close to God. And stay close to all of us your friends.
We all love you.

I am glad you are going to join the fitness center. It will be hard work at first, but I promise you will feel so much better and it will pay off. Having someone (with skin on, lol) to talk to helps a lot too. Good luck! I'm proud of you.
