Worse stuff, TMI and a rescue

Posted on Posted in Family
(Note: I wrote this last night.)
I know there are people facing WAY worse stuff than me tonight, but I’m a bit scared.
(spoiler: tmi) I had a horrible migraine on Sunday, like I hadn’t had in years. Seriously, it had been maybe 10 years since I even had to buy Excedrin Migraine! Today, my stomach is a mess, I’m laying in bed with a heating pad, and i’m fighting a cold sore with Lysine & mometasone.
I’m also fighting the urge to be upset and feel sorry for myself. I really want to give in to that urge and be upset that, if I wake up unwell, I can’t go to work & I can’t go to the TV show taping that was scheduled in advance.
I’m scared that these symptoms were sort of bad last month, and it seems they’re worse this month. 🙁 
Honestly, that terrifies me.
At the same time, I realize I’m battling FEAR, and I remember that it’s something the Bible talks about a lot.
Do not fear. Do not be afraid.

If I believe God’s word is true (I do), and I know God is coming to my rescue, even as I’m facing the scary possibility that intense pain may return, and even as I pray that it doesn’t, I can reassure myself that He really is coming to my rescue.
