I AM WORKING 5 DAYS A WEEK NOW BUT ONLY 4-6 HOURS EACH DAY. SOMEDAYS WHEN MY HEAD REALLY HURTS I TEND TO CRY AND THEN JUST GO TO SLEEP WITH MY THERAPY BAND ON. I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO FIND OUT WHY THE LORD ALLOWS SUCH INNOCENT SUFFEREING, NOT JUST FOR ME BUT FOR THOSE IN GENERAL. SO FAR I CAN'T SEEM TO FIND A STRAIGHT ANSWER FROM ANY MINISTER, PUBLICATIONS OR THE BIBLE. I AM VERY DEPRESSED BUT BEING WITH THE ANIMALS AND MY JOB HELP ME KEEP GOING.
Todd, I see a lot of suffering from patients with a lot of different conditions. People start to do better once they move past the "why" (we can't answer this) to acceptance. It takes time, and it happens for everyone at a different pace. Supportive family and friends, a good doctor, mindfulness and meditation, and clinging to the things that give you pleasure can help you get there. I'm glad you have your animals and your job. Wishing you better days ahead, Todd.
