Here is a three-part question and answer.
Question for Bernie:
I don’t even know where to begin. There’s so much to say. I guess I will start by asking if you still take patients. I would love to meet you and have you help me transform my life and my body. I am going through a health issue and would love your help. Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you.
I am not seeing patients any longer, but tell me where you are and what issues you are struggling with now.
Response to Bernie:
Thank you so much for responding to me. I am so happy for that.
I am a woman in my mid-twenties. I would say [that] right now is the most emotional and most eye opening time in my life.
The past seven years of my life, I put myself through a rough time. I was in a relationship that I felt made me lose myself mentally and spiritually. I got pregnant while in that relationship, which made me realize I had someone more important in my life now and that my health was important now too. My son changed everything, and I am so thankful God sent him to me when he did. He is now a toddler.
I was so proud of myself for finally leaving the relationship, and because I had finally got a place of my own. Life was amazing. One day I started talking to my ex (my son’s dad) more than I should have, and we ended up doing something I knew we shouldn’t have. Long story short, I now have a chronic disease and I feel God has punished me.
I feel he has left me and hates me. I know God had been trying to keep me away from this guy multiple times in the past and I wouldn’t listen. It took me having a kid to open my eyes and see that the relationship needed to end, and yet after all was said and done, I returned to him and made the biggest mistake that caused me to put my health is danger.
I try hard to accept it and let it go, but I am having a very hard time doing that. I am now going through a lot of depression and anxiety and fear for my health. It kills me even more that my son sees me this way. I am praying for a healing miracle, but it all seems so far away and impossible for me.
I know you are big on people’s past and upbringing, so I guess my big thing is that I didn’t have a father growing up. I mean he was there to pay bills, but he was constantly at the bar getting drunk instead of spending time with us. He was also abusive to our mother and didn’t care if we saw it. My mom and dad had five kids just like you and your wife. I have three sisters and one brother. I am glad none of us turned out to be alcoholics like our dad.
There is always hope
It is the faith that allows what you hope for a miracle to happen.
Response to Bernie:
I understand that, but what else can I do to heal my body? What actions should I take? Is there anything else you can say to me to help me? How do you normally counsel people who don’t live in your state? I need your help, please!!
Put up photos around your home of yourself as a child and love that kid every time you pass one. You can heal the wound of your father’s neglect in this way, and begin to build some self-respect that you can safely rely upon when it comes to decisions in your life.
Let your heart and not your head make up your mind.
