Cerebral Palsy tests me every day. The physical I’m used to by now. It’s the mental battle. I don’t fight the body as much. There are answers physically. Mentally is a different animal. I wage war. The blessing is that now I’m aware of what I stare down. And for that I’m grateful. Mind over matter. Finally makes sense. Where I must adjust. I’m never ready. I’m coming for the roadblock that I’ve never addressed.

May God give you the grace always to face and overcome every battle, Regine.ReplyDelete
You are an encouragement to all you touch. We have had several relatives with this struggle. You are held in special prayer with much love and admiration. May God be with you always.ReplyDelete
LOve, Hugs and Blessings,
It is never easy to walk the road into the unknown.
How aggressive, how severe will it be and can we stand it?!
With the help of God and lots of prayers, we CAN and knowing that we're never alone, there are others like us, facing the very same roadblocks.
Remember when you face things you are never alone!ReplyDelete
Thinking of you!
Sending prayers and hugs my friend. Rest in Him as you move forward to uncharted territory.ReplyDelete
I can't imagine. Thank you for being a blessing to others.ReplyDelete
The roadblocks cannot dampen your spirit, just plow on through.ReplyDelete
the big bumps in the road!! there are no perfect, encouraging words, there aren't!! i wish you the best, always!!ReplyDelete
"Nunca la noche es mas oscura que cuando va a amanecer" y "Que los árboles no te impidan ver el bosque". Estas dos frases son parte de mi crecimiento, de mi constante presente. Contienen mucha verdad. Espero que te sirvan de reflexión. Gracias por visitarme.ReplyDelete
Un abrazo con cariño. Paty
Love this, darling. I'm working on mind/body connection rn as well :)ReplyDelete
May you find a way around each road block that you encounter in your journey, Regine. :)ReplyDelete
I hope you can triumph over that roadblock.ReplyDelete
I wish you could be here and teach my disabled husband how to have 'mind over matter' xReplyDelete
I am praying for you. I am praying that God provides you with the strength and help you need.ReplyDelete
I too thank you for sharing your journey with your friends. Learning to be honest with others is difficult, when it comes to our struggles and feelings. With the best of intentions anyone replies can knock the breath out of us. But there is one friend--Jesus--He knows exactly what we're saying and He loves and cares for us and will never leave or forsake us. I don't know how you feel, you are a unique person as am I. I believe you to be kind and caring! I value you and what you share dear friend!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing your struggles with us. I appreciate your honesty!ReplyDelete
(((HUGS))) May God keep giving you the strength.ReplyDelete
Yes with chronic health problems--depression and anxiety can be almost as bad as the problem itself. I am glad you found a way of coping with it.ReplyDelete
Life can be so challenging. My aunt had a rare form of MS and my SIL's mother has a rare form of it too. Not the same as what you have but both make each day more exacting to deal with. You have so much heart. You're a true warrior.ReplyDelete
I can't imagine what you're going through, but to me you always seem strong. To write this blog and tell us what you're feeling is what courage is. Thank you. I'll keep you in my prayers.ReplyDelete
You are brave to acknowledge and share about your struggles and roadblocks. You are not alone because God promise to be with you and He will enable you with His strength and grace. Stay strong.ReplyDelete
We are thinking about you and sending positive vibes your way to help you face these challenges. Yes, the mental part is sometimes worse than the condition. I am disabled, too, when it comes to walking. I find being creative helps a lot, and you have your poetry and musings which also keep you connected. Bless.ReplyDelete
We have a friend with CP too and thank you for the reminder of how I need to ask not only how she is doing physically but mentally, big hugs to youReplyDelete
