2 pointsAnother of my favorite verses: Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 4:6,7) I work hard on this one, having to keep reminding myself of it often.
1 pointSorry to hear this Afroney. My mom is sort of in remission from the C-Diff (KNOCK ON WOOD) but she is having problems gaining back the lbs she lost during this time. My mom weighs less than 100 pounds now so she's skin and bones. She lost about 20 pounds from this horrible disease. We all take a lot of things for granted or react negatively to certain things. When I see someone complaining how they need to lose a few pounds I tell them they should be thankful that they can have the pleasure to eat what they want and have some reserved weight on their bodies for when they get sick they can afford to let it go. My aunt is very petite and has always been under 100 pounds due to strict dieting. I told her if she ever gets a disease like C-diff there would be nothing left of her so she better start eating and enjoy it while she can. No one is going to be on their death bed relieved that they lost those last 5 pounds and had focused their time and energy doing so.
