Ashli asks

"achro, do you have problems with dehydration on a somewhat regular basis, i.e., are you nauseated/puking a lot? i know i'm probably telling you something you already know, but if you're having issues with dehydration and that is causing gallbladder sludge/stones, then you've kind of got to get a handle on it, lest you develop some serious gallbladder disease and have to get it 86'd. if you need some hydration support while you work on your other health issues, you could go on a line. midline will last 14 days, but you might need to go on a picc for a while. i dunno your specific health needs, but i really encourage everyone to demand excellent health care.

I think it isn't other people who are judging yo so harshly but yourself. Seriously, have you gotten any counseling? I really really think it would be a good idea to get some psychotherapy, especilly in light of what you're going through. If *I* had insurance, I would be.

Thanks for your consern Chasmyn but I don't believe in psychotherapy for myself. I have tried it many times and it has always been a compleate waste of time and money for me. I believe I have a spritual problem, which is part of why it is a waste for me.... psychotherapy is not there to help in matters conserning the sprit or is woefully inaquate to do so. 'Sides I would never let an insurance co. pay for that kind of thing as then they would have it written down somewhere.....and I just donna think that is anyones business. So it comes out of my pocket to.

Luv ya

achromic, are you getting peer support at least? With my PTSD, the best thing for me was professionally-guided GROUP counseling. My PEERS were the people who had the wisdom I needed; the professional was just there to moderate and make sure it stayed healthy. It was an amazing process. And it took me years to stumble across it after futile attempts to get help from various professionals.

achro, i don't know the history, the ins and outs of you... so i don't want to be wreckless with my comments...

however, i can feel you on the comments re: psychotherapy. it's nice to have someone to talk to when it's either that or you're seriously going to kill yourself. been there done that. but outside of a secret internal crisis, i don't go for shrinks, and i get so sick and tired of the whole hackneyed, "have you talked to a shrink? you should get professional help." like that's going to solve anything. ugh. you talk til your eyeballs fall out and you leave the office with the same stinking problems, the same stinkin life. sigh...

Christ, baby. Christ and blogs... and not the "Christ" that everyone throws at you like "get some professional help", but the real relationship, the one where He can find you in the dark... and you allow yourself to BE found.

i love ya, girl... i really do, and i'm praying for you big time.

Ashli...thanks for writing that...I was wanting to say the same thing...

I think about how miserible I was before I really allowed my free will to leave and allow Christ to come in and love me...

I had been in therapy for 3 years seeing my theapist once a week...sister she cost me a lot of money...with Christ he paid the price...

I don't want to preach to you Achromic...but I think everyone of us who blogs on Afterabortion can feel your pain, can enter into your suffering and have compassion because we have suffered and know the darkness in which we lived...for many of us it was years..

The only way I can explain my conversion is I am now free...free of the deep ugly pain that gripped my very heart and soul and ruled my life for a very long time...I live in such darkness,true darkness...and now my soul is light.

You have such a beautiful heart...you have the heart of a mother...tender love and womanly wisdom...you are beautiful...

I pray for you to find your peace.

Interesting blog you have here, I landed here on accident. I was searcing for something else and came across your site. I found it pretty interesting and entertaining. I got you book marked.

I will pop back in from time to time to see what you have new here.

My site is a bit different than yours, but just as entertaining and educational, I run a weight loss support related site pertaining to weight loss support related articles.
