I normally am not a the type of person that asks for prayer but this is too big for me to handle alone. I was a very healthy and physically active individual. I was a mountaineer and climbed and hiked throughout my life. A few years ago, my health started to go. This was about 6 years ago. I had 4 major surgeries in the last 6 years with complications. I am in my early 60’s. Because of the trauma of these surgeries, I developed a condition known Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, commonly known as chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia immune deficiency or FSCIDS. Recent research has detected a cancer retrovirus XMRV – xenotropic murine leukemia virus- has been detected in the blood of CFS patients. Scientists determined that more than 95% of the patients in the study are either infected with live XMRV or are making antibodies that show their immune systems mounted an attack against XMRV and now had the virus under control.
With swine flu present, I am concern that I will not have the energy or resilency to fight this off if I happen to get it. I am in pain 24 X 7 which causes enormous stress on my body. Pain medication is effective to a point but each year, I get weaker. My condition is worsening so I am asking prayers for total healing and a reversal of my condition. So if the Lord lays this on your heart to pray, I appreciate your prayers and thank you in advance as I am not able to monitor as much as I like any messages or questions.
