Dizziness and later confusion

Today has been a day of darkness and sleep with periods of waking up to dizziness and confusion. Flashing screens continue to bother me. I try to stay away from shows that have a lot of segueing because of the typical flashes and the story lines are incredibly hard to follow.

My body does not take stimulation happily or readily. It fights and screams the whole way until it can no longer be ignored by throwing a huge fit. That fit usually either end up with my head above the throne or buried deep within pillows.

One moment of extreme confusion tonight was an interactive question posed about casinos tonight asking which of the four casino plans would be best for the area. Well, they listed five options. This led to me questioning the intelligence of the station and ended up being a discussion with my dad.

The answer causing all the confusion for me "Not one at all". I kept thinking that was a weird name for a casino. My dad kept patiently pointing out that was wrong. It finally dawned on me what was meant. I absolutely love, aka detest, these moments of "brain clarity".

Another day of therapy tomorrow so guess what that means until that time? You guess it.....sensory deprivation

More to come tomorrow

Keep praying

  1. Dear heavenly Father,
    Thank you for the many blessings you bring to our lives, including blessing me with an past advisee, friend, brother in Christ, and saint like Joe Heppler. God, he has been an overcomer since birth. You have strengthened him and taught him to persevere in times of illness, hardship, and trauma. Joe has lead by example to live like Jesus to share the love of Christ no matter what the occasion. No one understands the continued health issues Joe has to endure but I know in John 9:3, Jesus replies to the disciples about why the blind man was born blind:

    “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him."

    Therefore, Father God, use this time in Joe's life for your glory. Heal him, make him whole in body, mind, and spirit. Joe will be the first to claim the healing is from you and give you all the GLORY. He trusts in you with all his heart and leans not on his own understanding, but in all his ways acknowledges you so you will make his path straight (Proverbs 3:5-6). We love you, Lord and thank you for your divine healing and restoration. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
