Week 3 2017 Having Daily Challenges

I wish I knew what the answer is as to overcoming the sheer exhaustion of caring for a disabled husband while having the time to care for your own aching body. I am everyday reading Og’s words “Failure no longer will be my payment for struggle. Just as nature made no provision for my body to tolerate pain neither has it made any provision for my life to suffer failure. Failure, like pain, is alien to my life. (Of which I say loudly as I read it, ‘Yes, it is!’) In the past I accepted it as I accepted pain and I say even louder ‘No More!’ I am saying “no more” to pain and I reject it and I really mean it.

And then the reality of how my body is after pushing my husband in his wheelchair through the VA hospital for his multiple doctors’ appointments and then having to get him back home making sure we both get dinner and then getting him in bed and then finally getting a chance for myself, I realize just how much my body hurts. I really need help on how to make the words of Og about rejecting the pain as I reject failure when everyday I face physical pain in dealing with my disabled husband. I know I am saying I reject the pain. I just want to know how it really works since even today I am still in recovery from the added stress on my body of my day at the VA with my husband. HELP!

    You can do it If we just keep thinking about what we want… We can crowd out all the other stuff.
    This week’s mantra “I can be what I wil to be.”

      Karen,
      I appreciate you reaching out to me. The care of my disabled Army veteran military officer husband whose disability is related to his service to our country is my top priority. I don’t consider the physicality and emotional component of his care “the other stuff” even though I understand what you mean about “the other stuff”. I wish I only had to be concerned about “the other stuff” since that would be so much easier.

    Hello Theresa.
    It is my understanding that God never gives us more than we can handle.
    It seems it is only the best of us that always carry the greatest burden. You apparently are the best!!
    Good for you. Continue on. You will overcome!
    Sorry I can’t give you more specific help now. Maybe later.
    See you on the next Steve Earl zoom call.
