    Do any of you here sleep - I get little or none

    Thx LAD for your response - Yes, I've tried most of what is suggested on sleep issues but I am beginning to see that PD is really a bummer for sleeping. Of course right now the excercise issue needs to be addressed and will be after I recover from the broken collarbone. Of course there is a lot going on in my life right now due to me just retiring from my company after 20 years due to the PD issue and the transition has been somewhat challenging so my mind is racing with all the new changes so I need to control my mind. Hope the book you've purchased will help you. God bless!!!
  2. I know PD folks can have trouble sleeping. Have had PD for almost 9 years now and used to treat with sleeping pills but quit those horrid things @ 6 years ago. Then I was able to sleep again but insomnia has reared its ugly head about 3 months ago. I've tried every non-prescription natural sleep aid out here - have read all the usual stuff but have resigned the fact that this PD just won't let me. I have 2 hopes left - one is God says in Psalms he gives his beloved sleep but haven't seen that come to reality yet but I believe the book but sometimes the Lord's timetable is not ours so I will be patient and trusting. My other hope is once my fractured collar bone heals up I will get out of this recliner and have more freedom of movement so I can really get into some serious exercising which I believe will help. Your thoughts?

    Bible Verses....

    Yes, a good topic for one must understand that God knows, God comforts, and God works all things after the council of his own will. A quick outline on suffering: I. The Purpose of your suffering. Folks wonder why they became afflicted with such a miserable disease? A. You become afflicted so you might learn how to comfort others by first being comforted yourself. 2 Cor. 1: 3, 4 - Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. B. Your affliction is part of God's will for your life: Eph. 1:11 - In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: I Thess. 5:18 - In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you II. The Plan for Enduring suffering Get your focus right. Focus on God! Isa. 26:3 - Thou wilt keep him in perfect2 peace, whose mind3 is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Col. 3:1, 2 - If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. B. Focus on others 2 Cor. 1: 3, 4 - Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. Phil. 2:4 - Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others C. Focus on things that will edify Phil. 4:8 - Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest,1 whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. D. Focus on prayer Phil. 4:, 7 - Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. III. The Peace of God is the result Isa. 26:3 - Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Matt. 11:28 - Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Below are some other verses that I am trying to internalize into my life. II Cor. 4:17, 8 - for our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. Rom. 8:28 - And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Phil. 4:19 - But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. God bless!
