Prayers are helping Me cope

Recommended Posts

I have always been very prayful, but since I was diagonsed I pray even more. In prayer, I can say how I truly feel, how I hurt, how I feel betrayed by my husband. I pray to keep me strong and to remind me to forgive, which I do forgive my husband, but I will never forget. Forgetting would give me no reason to forgive. Because I am to ashamed to tell anyone else about my H, I talk to god I know he hears me. He is my rock, my strength.

Prayer is so powerful. I have always been someone who prays and trusts God through good times and bad. I am looking for His purpose in my life even more now that I have been diagnosed with this. I have been married for a long time and this is not something I ever thought would touch my life, but it has. I prayed to have someone to talk to and I found this site. I needed to share my fear and pain with others and God sent me here. I am so thankful for the support and help that others have given me.

I understand feelings of shame, but that is something we feel because of the stigma and not truth. God knows our hearts and loves us even when others do not understand what we are going through. I find the Serenity Prayer is very helpful and keeps me focused and centered.

I am glad you are finding a way to forgive and cope through prayer. I hope you find peace and know you are not alone.

Thank you, your reply is very helpful to me. You are right. This forum allows me to see I am not so bad off. Reading various quotes, I am blessed. There are others who may be worse off then me, but in the end we are all in the same boat. We all the been diagnosed with the same thing and there is no cure. You are right about prayer also it is very powerful. I am going to do everything I can to keep my self healthy. I am also going to read everything I can so I can be more informed and I am going to continue to pray. I will not be bitter, I will let go let God. I have the serenity prayer hanging on my wall. Most people think it is a prayer just for AA, but it was not written just for them. Thanks again for bringing some light into what was a series of dark days. Be blessed.

The power of prayer is just that...powerful. Although I often cant concentrate enough to pray because I am so upset with this disease, when I do I often pray for Dr. Bloom or other scientist to be given the knowledge they need to cure this. Remember prayer changes things. Even though I myself often forget it!

      That’s very good, I take 9 grams of glutamine a day and it has really helped me, I notice a tremendous difference the next day if I miss a day. I hope thing continues to go well for you. Take care,  Much love to you,

      I just want to be able to stop thinking about it. It is ruining my overall health.  He ruined my life and has now ruined another woman too but she stayed with him. I wanted to warn her but she wouldn't have believed me.  But I'm sure she would now. I just want to move on with my life but I'm afraid I will spend the rest of my life alone.

      Hi, I just want to say I understand what you’re going through. My partner cheated though he still denies it! I used to get cold sores then when he has his first outbreak I got mine and he tried to blame me for giving it to him. I’m 38years old and come from a small town near Watford. I have 2 kids. I feel like when I get asked out or just a guy is remotely interested I just have the big H in the front of my head! I hate him for doing this to me. I get out breaks every month they are painful and in different places each month. I am going to start looking after myself and eating better, no alcohol and see if that helps.    But I do think of my friend, she has it and she met someone in London 11 years ago. She told him and he was fine with it. They have 2 kids now. She got it from a guy she knew had it and she decided to sleep with him. He told her. She knew the consequences.    You’re not alone

      I focus on trying to heal myself.  I don’t believe that this is permanent.  And I no longer date.  I don’t want the drama nor the stress.  I’ve found that my overall health has improved and I am much more knowledgeable regarding natural antivirals and immune system boosters.  Amino acids play a very large role.  Just breathe.  You’re gonna be ok.  The symptoms do fade away in time.
