Theology AND Therapy (and a primary care physician)

2/23/2021
A few months before my first shunt revision when my baby was only a few months old I remember saying “I don’t like my baby and I don't think he likes me either” Crazy, right? Those headaches had me trippin'. But honestly even after the revisions, something still wasn’t quite right. I STILL WASN’T QUITE RIGHT. I would have these crying spells and be completely overwhelmed with caring for him; mentally, emotionally, and especially physically. And yet, I pressed. I was determined to press...

The year of a finished yes

2/9/2021
I remember posting on social media something like "when it’s your passion, you do it on purpose." I also remember posting one day that God had opened up the floodgates of heavens, meaning that internally the creative waters were flowing and God had reopened my access to vision. So boom; putting two and two together, there you have it folks, … the name of my business absolutely had to be Floodgate Purpose & Passions LLC. Just break things further into perspective for you, one of the...

Walking out obedience

1/26/2021
I realized that in 2020 I was constantly triggered by different things. From the fear of another shunt malfunction, to being a new mom again, potential marital issues, any and every thing was becoming a trigger. My moods were going bananas all the time. My past was brought to the forefront again because of the podcast and book, and here I was, stuck… again, ughhhhh. I knew it would be a matter of time before I had to get back in counseling, for the sake of my assignment and the remainder of...

The Results of a Yes

1/12/2021
**portions of the audio have static due to a technical error, please fast-forward until it clears** I was scared and still on edge about doing what the Lord was asking of me, but listen when I tell you all I had/have was a yes. I mean, what would have been my reason for saying no Fear, well there's a remedy for that; 2 Timothy 1;7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. Psalm 34;4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from...

The fight to live had been won again

12/29/2020
Finally, I was on the mend from my first shunt revision brain surgery. I had a 3month follow-up CT scan and everything was back on track with the ventricles...huge sigh of relief. My norm had settled once again. All of a sudden and I could feel a slight change creeping up over time. Alright, keep calm… no reason to panic… it’s just a regular, occasional headaches… everybody has 'em. I finally called to schedule a doctor appointment and was scheduled for another CT scan. I get a call the next...

Broken Gizmo

12/15/2020
July 17, 2019, two days after I walked into the ER for a simple headache, 97 days after having a baby... I needed my first shunt revision brain surgery. For the life of me I couldn’t understand why God was allowing this. Why give me a baby and I can’t fully enjoy motherhood. Why give me a baby that has to see its mother suffer. Why give me a baby and then I can’t even take care of him.

Boy, oh boy!!!

12/1/2020
Welcome to SEASON TWO!!! In April of 2019 I had a baby boy via C-section. His middle name is Asher which is derived from Genesis 30:13 and means “blessed, happy”. The newness and excitement was gone within the first few months and the realization of having to be a stay at home mom again after 15yrs settled in. I started having headaches similar to sinus headaches. There was also a shift in my mood and my mental state and I wondered if it was Post-Partum related Depression/Anxiety/Rage. At...

Wilt thou be made whole

11/3/2020
Because it was always my desire to have a whole family, I had to be whole, right?? I had become a masked version of wholeness and was fine with it. God however, was like nah sis… we gonna deal with this thang (again). God does things in totality and it doesn’t always feel good but it is always necessary. Dang near every area that still needed to be healed was brought back up within 9 months. It was only fair that because I had so desperately wanted a whole family and I was bearing a male...

Come on Lord, this aint funny

10/19/2020
Yall. Like, yall. I had taken two tests that came back positive and I was a whole 43yr old. I was not okay. Well, I was okay/happy/excited/grateful, but I was old and rickety and tired. Was sho’ looking forward to just me and my husband. I remember immediately saying “Lord, I’m old. I know you do all things well, but I’m old” I also remember saying “maaaan, Lord you gotta fix some stuff. I gotta get my attitude together. Just ughhhh.”

Old Wine in New Wine Skin

9/21/2020
There’s a scripture that says “Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.” Matthew 9:17. It’s like losing weight and still trying to wear the old clothes, it's just not a good FIT, nor is it a good LOOK. When something is old it is worn out and has lost some it’s ability to contain and maintain like it once could. So here we were (my good old family),...

7yr Itch & Scratch

Alright, so THAT part of “in sickness and in health” of our marriage was finally on the straight and narrow for a minute. Still not having fully dealt with all of my baggage but life kept going so I kept going right along with it the best that I could. Everybody had gotten into a routine of ordinary their regulars. Everybody knew what was expected of them and to MY knowledge all was well. You know, it was another moment of rest before my little world began to shake again. And by shake, I...

Blended Family Blessings & Blues PHASE 2; in sickness and in health

8/24/2020
Most marriage vows say “through sickness & health" some where in them. We often equate that phase to happening in our older years OR that it just relates to the physical aspect. There are MANY types of sicknesses, but for me there were three main areas that KEPT reoccurring; emotional, physical, and mental. I’m not beyond saying that in addition to the obvious physical sickness I had a LOT of mental & emotional sickness going on too. I never took the time to properly heal from ANY thing...
