For the past 6 or more months, my thyroid has been REALLY off. Also, I have not had any appetite and have not been hungry. I used to be able to eat one meal a day. Now, I can barely eat one full meal and am having trouble getting enough fluids in as I am sure my stomach has shrunk. I did not have this weight to lose, and I have lost over 20 pounds. My have has sunken in, and I look like someone from a concentration camp. I used to be a daily, avid walker; however, I am having to, unfortunately, stop walking because my heart is starting to hurt. Hurts to sit as my bones are protruding. My hips are out of joint as is my tailbone and entire back and neck. I have stopped going to the chiropractor as I am afraid at age 53 that I am very susceptible for osteoarthritis, etc. My doctor has not been doing much for me at all. I also have been having daily migraines that are disabling. Now, I cannot get up until late, late morning as I am just too weak. I see my doctor on Monday (I do not have insurance and live on very little income per month), and I must be assertive as have not been. I am praying he will DO something for me! I am trying to drink Ensure but I am at the point I can barely drink one can a day. I would greatly appreciate any prayers as I know that God is my great physician and healer. I feel so alone sometimes, but listening to WNWC helps me so very much. Knowing someone is praying for me will also help. Thank you for reading all the way through this, if you did! :)

I am overwhelmed. Two months ago, I had a home, a wonderful man to share it with, our kids...now our family has been ripped apart by assumptions and misunderstandings. We are all suffering in our own way...he and I, our children. He is battling something within himself that I have no knowledge of. I only see what it has done to him. Controlled by anger and resentment. He focuses on my past mistakes, using them as weapons against me. Refusing to see that I am not that person anymore. That person I was has been gone a long time. It hurts to have those things thrown at me. They are being used to validate his actions and words, when they no longer apply today. I pray for forgiveness. For my own sins, and for his. I pray the Lord will touch him. Allow him to see what is really behind the anger and bring healing. I ask God to bring our family back together. Renew it. Take whatever has been broken, and make it whole again. I ask for wisdom in dealing with him. That the Lord will put the right words in my mouth, so that all he feels is love. He has kicked me out of our home. It was so unexpected. Cruel. I will not allow myself to hate him for it as I know there is something deeper going on here. But I am afraid. I am hurt. I miss our family and I miss the man I use to know. I am unsure what to do next. I need guidance. All of this I ask In Jesus Name.

A situation has come up that I don't know how to handle and it is family related. There were some issues at home that we are working at resolving with what we have. In addition I was unable to get my mom out to see them when they were at a local campground. The only thing is that it will cost us about $1500 to resolve properly. The hardest part is that my mom's family knows about it and now they want nothing to do with us. There are some additional issues. They were lied to about some things that they are taking their anger and frustrations out on us to the point where they want nothing to do with us. What could we have done that was so bad they want to do that? They reported the issues to APS and they are threating to have use kicked out of the house and having my parents put in a home. While my mom is wheel chair bound my dad and I perfectly capable of taking care of ourselves. Is that even a possibility? I hope and pray that it doesn't go that far but i am not so sure about anything anymore. We have tried to make things right by reaching out to them and trying to talk about things, but every attempt has been rejected. They are even keeping the inheritance that my mom is due from the passing of her mother a few months ag. We were supposed to go to upper Michigan for a celebration of life for my grandma but they basically said. "we don't want you there" for whatever reason. It is at the point where I cant handle things on my own. I want so badly to make things right with my mom's side of the family but I cant do it all on my own they have to meet me half way. Cause without family what else is there? At what point do I just say "you know what if that is the way you want then so be it" I just need guidance and wisdom from the most high on how to handle things. Cause I want to do it the right way and whatever I can to make it right cause the whole is hurting my mom that her family is rejecting her like this. And honestly it is hurting me to.

My wife & I could some prayers for financial help. As most Americans, we are in debt but the latest is the non-stop debt collector calls because we are 2 months behind on car & 1 month on mortgage. Please keep us in your prayers as we struggle through this summer.

Thank you for reading my prayer. I live in an apartment building. I have been struggling with roaches in my apartment for the past several months. Numerous exterminator visits with chemicals and the last treatment was yesterday. Now, I saw a roach this morning in my bathroom, again. I am so tired and frustrated. Was told no one else is experiencing this problem. I feel I have the cursed apartment with had problem with mice for a long time and had problems with heat, but these have resolved. I have even bought my old stuff from the internet that has good rating to kill roaches. I called the management office again today. They are good and responsive. Please god help me get rid of these as they are affecting my life greatly. I have kept up with cleaning my apartment. I feel I cant have anyone over. Please help me. Thank you.
