Rhys, please know that all your brothers and sisters here at BT love you very much
and we all know Our Lord God will gather us all together with our loved ones one day
and we all wait and grieve with you knowing and believing Our Saviour is coming. Cling
to Jesus.

That is true and great encouragement. I feel down now for this life as she was a great companion and I loved her a lot. Going on through this life now looks more difficult but iis something I must do.

Amen to what Pamela said. We are here loving and praying for you dear brother.

This is one of those situations when the loss of someone so dearly loved, rocks the very foundation of reality.  You've been dealt a terrible blow Ryes, but God will hold you up with his love and strength,  while you fight to find your way.

I am physically doing much better. My pain in my ribs has gone and only some stomach pain at times. Taking less pain medicine now and can move much better, even do little bits of jogging. I guess as improve physically the emotional side takes over and that has been very difficult to cope with the loss of my wife. I loved her a lot so feels like Iím half the person now. I will get counselling soon to help me through it. The police also came this week and I gave my statement. The case still ongoing but looks like the other driver will be prosecuted and I may have to go to court. Police also said they may not get enough evidence to prosecute but that looked less likely. Taking each day as it comes and dealing with it the best I can. Thanks for prayers and support

Dear Ryes, I'm happy to hear your  physical injuries have improved so well. I know the emotional hurt will be an ongoing battle, that will test you in ways only you can know, but I will continue to pray for God to fortify you with his strength and faith, in the difficult days ahead.

The car accident was 2 months ago today. Physically I am still improving. My broken ribs are healed and pain gone. I still have cuts on my elbows which are slowly healing. Most of my pain and problems now is from the hole in my stomach which gets a bit sore. I still wear stoma bag and middle of next month I will have surgery here at Whakatane hospital to reverse so no more bag so that will be good, just need to get through operation. I had enough of hospital so to go back gets me down but needs to be done.

I have concussion now which is really annoying on my mind . I am seeing psychologist now to get through missing Sheila . Itís really hard now and donít know how I will get through or ever be ok. I think having concussion does not help, just makes things look darker and I forget to do and pay things but sorting that out.

Been reading a bit from Ray which is really encouraging at this time. My faith in God has been a bit up and down. Itís really hard to see why all this happened to me. I would like to say Iím just trusting God but itís really challenging for me. I feel I should be doing better spiritually but just not. Is hard with the concussion and hard to explain  things. I just pray as when you canít see clearly you donít know what to do as even just reading is a challenge.

I wish I had some words Rhys, but they escape me. And you know all of the words anyways. I'm just very sorry for what's happened.

He has you as He wants you for a season.  I have no direct experience with all you have gone through.  Just know that all this hit all your friends like a punch to the gut.  I'm not without direct experience of the seeming ebb and flow of faith.  It's HIS faith that's important.  It's HIS love that is first and foremost.  It's the fellowship of HIS sufferings.  Without Him there is nothing made that is made.  Everything ends very, very well.  I am hoping for you to get a healthy does of "foretaste" as you live your life from this point forward in this new reality.

I lurk sporadically,  and peruse messages here and there, but haven't been on the forum as much as I was when I first joined. So I just saw this post recently.

Due to a few mistakes made by the medical community my wife became gravely ill. I know medicine has its place, but basically we were left to our own devices and had to tough through it. I'm still shaking my head after all these years. Doctors were clueless, and I honestly believe an emergency room trip could very easily have killed my wife.

I can't prove it in a court of law, but I know deep in my heart that there was a period of time when the direct intervention of God is the only thing that prevented me from waking up next to a dead body in the morning.

We're still in the tunnel,  but at least we can see the light at the end now.

This situation has been impossible to explain to friends and family. What I have found, is that when you explain something to someone, they immediately reach into their  own experiences to find a way to relate to what you are saying.

Thanks to the internet,  we have a good idea of what happened at the time. But we didn't have that luxury years ago, and were unable to explain what was going on in a manner where people could understand what we were going through.  Hard to understand,  I know, you'll just have to take my word for that.

I can't even begin to explain the anger I had over this situation. Sometimes I feel like Paul in Roman's chapter 7. I know that I don't have any standing or right to question why God does what He does. But yet I still do. Then I eventually feel guilty about it.

Rhys, I have never had an interaction with you on this forum, and now that I do, words fail me.

I am so sorry for your loss.

I understand and I'm glad you got thru it Abednego.

About 3 years ago the hospital overdosed me on morphine which damaged my kidneys. Took me months to figure it out.

But before the hospital I'd been dizzy and lightheaded. Six months after getting out of the hospital I had enough strength to barely go to a specialist about being dizzy. I told him about being overdosed on morphine and how bad my kidneys were. He put me on what he said was a low dose of Prednisone but turned out to be a full dose. That made my kidneys even worse. I thought for sure I would die soon but in seven months I started to recover.

Six months later while still very weak I went to yet another specialist and he told me I had Meniere's disease and there is no cure.

But I kept searching and one day YouTube suggested I watch a video "Gluten made me dizzy" so I got off the gluten and after years the dizziness went away.

Doctors cannot keep current and most just peddle pills for which they get kickbacks.

I've also been under a lot of stress for the last two years and my son suggested I try CBD Oil and it helped with the stress. But after a few days I noticed my kidneys were not as bad and they continued to get better. I'm not healed but I just returned from a Super Walmart which was out of the question a year ago.

And the CBD Oil has lessened my gluten sensitivity by a lot. I can now eat regular bread with no problems.

But you have to be careful, there's also a lot of snake oil on the Internet.

Dennis, I'm glad you're doing better. I remember when you talked about getting sick, and reread the old post you had made. So glad you're going in the right direction, I know it hasn't been easy.
