I was born with Cerebral Palsy, so I have always been in a wheelchair and unable to talk.  I became famous when I started programming speech software to sing.  I have done talks and concerts all over the United States.  However, I'm now 51 and I'm dealing with nerve damage, neuropathy, and chronic leukemia.  So if I get the money together, I'm hoping to do my last presentation in 2017 at a disability conference.

But in looking at this group topic, I felt like reminding everyone that God makes beautiful things.  We all have to die sometime and I'm scared.  But waking up to the face and glory of God will all be worth it.  And we will be part of that glory.  I was messing around with the song "BEAUTIFUL THINGS" and it sounds cool.  But how much more beautiful will the sounds of Heaven be?

For Lana Fultz:

I too think I have peripheral neuropathy.  The doctors can't seem to figure out what I have.  My feet were so painful and I haven't been able to sit or drive for 6 months. The good news is that I was prayed for by a group of believers a few weeks ago and I have been getting better ever since.  I also just finished a course of Prednisone so I'm worried I will backslide again.  I have to just keep believing in Him so that no matter what meds I'm on or not on, He will do the healing.  I know it is hard.  I will pray for you.  Keep the faith!

Two months ago I was having tingling in feet and hands. Now I have been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy. It is so painful and debilitating. I cannot go to work because of all that pain. I do not like taking drugs for pain because all I do is sleep all day. I am losing my place to live because I cannot pay the rent here. I have a lot of faith and do believe that God will provide and He does heal. It is hard not to look at circumstances because I have had too much loss. I gave away 50% of my belongings. Cannot go to work. Sitting in too much pain day and night. Even though through all that I do look up to God. That is the only way I can get through the day. There must be a bigger purpose to all of this.

Good Morning Theressa,

I am so sorry you are going through this. I had no idea. Thank you so much for sharing your story. I know how HARD it is to be trapped in the...realm of the Unknown, fearing what lies in waiting for us everyday. Living with yourself in the midst of a seriously illness, has got to be the toughest thing I have ever had to deal with. My heart goes out to you, Theressa, today, and for always, I hope it helps for you to know you are not alone. I too am suffering on a daily basis with excruciating pain and no recourse. Year after year the doctors try to keep shoving more pills down my throat and my faith and hope seems to knock them into the trash every time. Pain Pills, for me are not the answer, I have found. And I stand by that decision every day when I wake up until it is time to rest my weary head and bones at night. I always thank god for everyday, painfilled or not. I ask him for things to come into my life that will take my mind off of all of it and pray for friends that will not treat me like I am a leper, it is NOT Contagious. It is just uncureable. My hopes for everyone in this world that suffers with the unknown is that a cure will ARISE from all of our pain and take it away. Remember, God uses his strong ones for his most greatest endeavors. He is counting on us to withstand the TEST. So, I tell you today, my friend, I stand with you, in your pain, in your fear of the unknown, but with HOPE and FAITH for the CURE to not just ours, but to all disease and suffering. For now, being in GODS light, will do. I hope we can do some healing together. God Bless You Theressa. Your Friend, Natalie

When i came to this country iwas only 18yrs old, with no family or friends just strangers. Being in a new place and have an illness can be really scary for a loner,especially when you dont have the fainest idea , of how serious you illness is. 

Living with Neurofibromatosis 1 (or NF for shorthen), has been a real challenge for me, because i didn't really understand what NF was. Some days are good when i have no pain and other days the pain form the tumors are unberable. Nf has not only been scary but it has open my eyes that life goes on reguardless. The yearly test, the different tests, the more than one doctors, the stress, the pain, the crying at nights.  It can sometimes feels like your in a world all by yourself but,God has been truly good for taken me through all this,and i can and never will find the right words to say or tell him THANKS for EVERYTHING!!!!!
