The Calming Truth


We all have times when our brains get busy. Minds race or the little voices inside are pushing you to do something your not sure about, or your literally hearing voices, your own voice gets overrun by all the other things on your mind. One thing I learned that helps quiet things down is telling myself something true. As I focus my mind clears and I’m able to think my own thoughts again.

When I hear the voices and start to get anxious, I focus on my Truth. Jesus was born of the Holy Spirit and lived. He was crucified, dead, and buried.  He arose alive and was seen. He ascended into Heaven where he sits next to God the Father and sent the Holy Spirit to help His followers. God allowed all this to happen so that mankind could be forgiven of their sins and have eternal life with Him.

I’m Starving

For about two months my stomach has hurt. I wasn’t able to place it. I did notice that I was eating gradually more and my weight increased. I was talking with Mom about it. That feeling is hunger. I didn’t place it because it’s been a long time since I felt hunger because I’m on Topomax.

I am on Risperdal. 44% of people who take it have increased appetite. Some describe it as a starving man at a buffet.  I think its a good description. No matter how much I eat my stomach feels so empty and sometimes the empty feeling hurts. The only way to stop the feeling is to go off the medicine.

The big question, how will the doctor react when I say I can’t live like this?
