Reinvigorated


Hello everybody, I wanted to post a quick update on how I am doing. I pray that all is well with you and your families in this pandemic, my family and I are all doing well. Thank God.

I was completely unfocused for the last couple of months. The depression snuck in and set up shop in my head, I lost hope for a little bit. I began to doubt that I would ever recover from the stroke. Plus the fact that I was not going to physical therapy was not helping me. My insurance ran out, then paying cash my money ran out and then, my hope and motivation ran out. I was truly feeling frustrated and helpless. No one cared about anything that was not Corona Virus related. If not for my wife. I Sincerely doubt that I would have made it. Thoughts of death invaded my mind every day. I called Mental health and they helped me through some of the rough patches.

Thankfully I am now a Medicaid recipient. So I was able to get a appointment with my therapist for a evaluation and I was approved for physical therapy Sessions again.

Yaaay. I am very pleased to be back in therapy. I am so motivated that I even want to go back to the gym. (I am way ahead of my actual physical abilities) it will be a while before I can get back into the routine of working out, but I am hopeful. I ride my exercise bike every day. I am also a part of a stroke recovery group, which has been a blessing.

I am so grateful that God has spared my life and I pray continuously for restoration and his healing power. I feel so much better now that I have therapy again. I pray that this is the year I can leave the cane behind walk on my own and grab things again. I believe that it will be.

Thank you for reading this.

Peace and blessings

  1. I’m sorry you were struggling with depression and hopelessness. I know what that’s like. I’m glad you have your wife and called mental health. Awesome you were able to get Medicaid in place and get back into PT! I have no doubt that you will one day be back in the gym. You are one of the most determined people I have the honor to call my friend. Thanks for your inspiration always. Sending love and hugs

    Thank you for sharing this Eric.
    You just made my day with this good news.

    I just finished a prayer time for some other friends.
    Now I will pray, praising Jesus for how He is working in you, and has just done for you, in these difficult times.
    Then I will go to sleep refreshed and excited.
    Glory to God.

    God Bless you and your wife Abundantly.
