I pray that either the stress be removed or that you be given strength to deal with it.

Thank you everyone for your prayers - I have some clarity and my sense of being is calming down.  I have PTSD, though I have not had an event in a long long time, thanks to a wonderful (Orthodox) counselor several years ago.  I also have a dissociative disorder that I've not had an event in since my mid thirties. . . thankfully, I have had great counseling for that as well, and know how to pull myself out of both and work toward a healthy reality - but it takes a minute. 

I am taking the appropriate steps for myself and adding additional stress relieving activities.  Hopefully as we go on through the life changing events that have taken place I will be more able to adjust through them. 

Heh. . .me the military brat - that loves change. . . am humbled by your prayers and my own thankful weaknesses.  He is strong in my weakness.  And that's a blessing.

:)

Thanks be to God for each of you, and thank you for your prayers.

I'm really glad things are looking up for you and that you're finding ways to cope and be happy.  Please pray for me as I pray for you.  :)
