I went to the doctor for my yearly physical. They said I needed to update my vaccines. They gave me a tetanus shot. Well, I should have said NO. After the shot I began to feel quite odd. Then I began to experience weakness and tingling in my limbs. At night I felt sick to my stomach. I went to bed thinking I will feel better in the morning. Not so. I still had the weakness and some tingling. I have been drinking lots of fluids.
I went to my doctor this morning. His examination of me turned up nothing. He said he has not had a patient have a bad reaction to the shot, so he seemed baffled as to what to say to me. He told me if I do not feel better by Friday to come back. Maybe I am being overly concerned about this, but given my track record with the world of medicine I am extra sensitive. From this day forward I will refuse vaccines.
Our house deal is going through. I packed one box on Monday before my physical. The reality of moving again is bringing up feelings. So much has happened these past years. Even though the Lord as been with me every step of the way, I haven't processed it all. So this move may help me process the past more fully and hopefully bring a greater peace.
Do you ever have those times when you know the Lord is speaking to you? At those times I just want to grab on to His feet and stay. On my way to the doctor today, He spoke and let me know that He is with me. Later, in the afternoon, He told me that just because there is chaos in my life, it does not mean that I am out of step with Him. That is something I desperately needed to hear today. Thank you Lord!
