The above photo is one that I took this morning with my iPhone. This was our breakfast view!
Sam has a big convention this week in the city of San Antonio and I chose to make the trip with him. He actually needs my help and I do enjoy visiting with the MANY customers that come by the booth.
I always enjoy visiting the downtown area of San Antonio. The riverwalk is so pretty and full of wonderful restaurants.
Back to yesterday's post....... I wanted to clarify that I no longer suffer from depression..... Praise the Lord!!
Back 30 years ago was when the nightmare of my life first began, life was going great for Sam and I. Our girls were 9 and 7 and they were full of life. We were in the process of building a new home, and I had a job that I loved, working at the bank.
Suddenly.....like overnight......I became a sick, very sick person.
Sam took me to the ER clinic and I will never forget the doctor that was on call..... He must have been at least 75 years old and to me at that time....this was really old.
This doctor immediately diagnosed my problem. He wanted to give me a hormone injection, but Sam and I were not sure about this and we chose for me NOT to take the injection. If I had....I possibly could have saved myself a lot of pain and agony. This older Dr. did suggest that I see my gynecologist to discuss my situation.
The next week.....I did go to see my gynecologist......who informed me that I needed to see a psychologist. At this point....a 5 year nightmare was just ahead of me.
As I said yesterday.....Sam did much research and found a Doctor that could help me. His first step was to give me a series of injections for 3 months straight. These injections were so expensive but it was the Hope that we had been looking for.
These injections would shut down my pituitary gland and by doing so, the doctor would be able to tell if his diagnoses was correct. Sure enough....during those three months, I gradually began to be the old me. I had a complete hysterectomy and was placed on HR therapy, immediately.
I have so much to be thankful for and what I missed telling you yesterday is that without the prayers of our church family, without my relationship with the Lord and without God's wisdom......I really do not know what the outcome of my life would have been.
Many women suffer from this problem and some never get the help they need. Not only did my old gynecologist insist that I needed to see a psychiatrist, but many other doctors did so, as well. We sometimes have to be smarter than the doctors!!
If my message helps only one person, then it is ever bit worth the posting of my story!! Honestly....I wish I had the time to go into detail how God worked in favor of my situation. You would be amazed!! Hopefully, someday, I can write a book that will be a huge inspiration to other women who suffer from this problem.
Ok folks.....I'm fixing to get up off of this bed and head down to the convention center.... Can't wait to see what the next few days hold.
