Calling all Prayer Warriors

Although I do have Dystonia links on this site, and comment from time to time on this state of being, I mostly try to not put too much about Dystonia on, as I want you to see "Cherry Kingdom" as a happy place to be and to minimize this as much as I can for myself as a "psych" less I let Dystonia define me. Today will have to be an exception, I am some where between "fed-up and not giving up!" MIA for the last four days has been caused by a myriad of things. Not feeling that great, not sure if it's because I'm a month past my treatment date, due to changing neurologist, (I have an appointment with the new neurologist next Monday) or if I'm just tired from everything and stressed in general. Thankfully we will only drive approx. 1 1/2 hours to the other side of Sacramento, instead of 3 hours to Sunnyvale! And I think I mentioned this before, this guy takes my insurance, whoo hoo! I'll be able to keep $5085.00 in my pocket every three months because I think my insurance co-payment for this should only be $15.00. We'll see...but I didn't want to write about me this morning... I actually wanted to ask all you prayer warriors out there to pray for my two dystonian friends...
Shari from "Shari's Ramblings."
Whom is contemplating "DBS", which stands for deep brain stimulation, and my other friend... Suzanne from "Dystonia Secret."
Who is struggling with mis-diagnosis and insurance companies refusing the very treatment that could make her almost appearing normal again, and more importantly end the severe suffering she is currently enduring. The dreaded "botox shots," as painful as they are is what she needs...If you could all say a prayer for them and stop on over to their sites and whisper a word of encouragement in their comment section, I know it would be so encouraging for them! (You can find their links in my sidebar) I have to run, just needed to put this out there hoping you all would help me intercede for them on bended knee... I'll post funnier things later, it's "madhatter" time! Be blessed!

Hey Sweetie. I'm sorry to hear about you friends and the frustration on top of all the pain. I will most definitly say a prayer for them and you of course.

I haven't been on line much at all. I think about you everyday though. I hope you'll have a wonderful Thanksgiving this year. I am so thankful that I met you. I'm sending good thoughts, wishes and prayers your way.

Hugs & love, Tracy

P.S. I'd like to get your mailing address if you don't mind.

This must wear on all of you. Then to have to deal with insurance coverage...if it will...how much and if it won't...how much will be out of pocket. My thoughts are with you all.

I am familiar with these ladies. I have prayed for them and will continue to do so. I pray for you and for all of us in this struggle with Dystonia. Prayer and faith are very much needed in facing this.

God Bless!!!
