i'm gonna have to disagree with parts of your post. i contracted tick borne encephalitis, which, over the course of several months, slowly drove me
insane from infection in my brain tissue, which ate the protein sheath coatings off the nerves, allowing them to touch each other and short circuit,
like live wires being exposed to each other. not only did it drive me slowly insane, it messed up hormone production, resulting in massive cravings
for everything from sex to food to drugs just so i could go to sleep. no one, including myself, realized i was ill till the day i went into the
hospital and went into a coma. even the nurse in the emergency room thought i just had a flu bug (mind you, i was totally blind from the infection at
that point, but she apparently didn't know that cause hubby was helping me do everything anyway and i was too out of it to express just how bad my
my hubby thought i was just going thru a mid life crisis. yeah it was a crisis alright. it would've destroyed our marriage if he hadn't been an
awesome man to begin with, with a solid faith. thankfully, i married wisely. anybody else, and it would've likely ended badly. my personality
totally changed. i became paranoid, and not just a little, but ALOT. i would pray and pray and get some solace, but the underlying medical condition
continued to escalate.
ain't no way you can fight that kinda fear because it isn't spiritual, it's totally physical. also, while in such a weakened condition, when your
morals go the way of the dodo, your friends will think you've lost your faith, which of course is not even remotely true because you're medically
ill in your brain pan!
so don't tell me that REAL christians will not or are never scared. REAL christians can have some pretty bad things happen to them, take my word
