I was suffering from POTS related symptoms. Dizziness, chronic fatigue, and frequent chest pain. I tried most everything that my doctors prescribed and felt worse. I prayed and was watching TV one day and seen a piece on Transcendental Meditation which I had learned to do when I was younger. I would have ate dirt if it made me feel better. I started to do it daily and noticed after about one to two weeks that my symptoms got slightly better. However, I continued and after 6 months, my symptoms were a rare occurance, chest pains or dizziness one or twice a month. I STRONGLY suggest this natural method to anyone. It has made an incredible difference in my life. May God bless all who suffer from POTS.
Thank you for sharing ranger98. Your experience is inspiring. Prayer and meditation is a strong, powerful tool and something we all could benefit from. I pray daily and it really does make a difference. I am not skilled in transcendental meditation. I admire your perserverence and willingness to help yourself and others.
Thanks again for sharing and may God bless you richly,
Totally! I've been trying to get myself down onto a lower dose of Klonopin due to the med making me so tired. I was on 3mg, and would like to be on 1 or 2mg, but feel like although I've been able to get it down to 2.5mg so far, I'm turning into a jerk, and fear the person that I might turn into without the med. I'm going to try meditation before going back up to the 3mg's again, as I don't want to be sick and medicated for the rest of my life!! I thought that the therapy helped, and maybe it did, but the original reason as to why I went on the meds, was to prevent myself from turning into my dad... something that I vowed not to do! Now I find myself yelling more and loosing my cool just like before the meds, and just like my childhood memories of my father.
I really hope that the meditation helps, as I also used to meditate when I was younger, and know how to, at least I know the meditation where you clear the mind and focus on the breathing, putting all acknowledged distractions that pop up in a mental boat to be sent away down a river, refocussing on the breathing, and clearing out all of the mental garbage. It's really just a matter of putting it into my routine.
I pray that this works cause my wife will be furious if I go back on the higher dose, and at the same time, she's telling me to get back on the meds when I get out of hand. Either way, I loose, unless this works...
Hello Ranger98 in answer to your question yes I personally do believe in the power of prayer & personally think more people should experiance this concept as over my whole 60 years on this earth many times relaxation & prayer to a higher being has had a positive effect on my life, so good on you for speaking out on this subject.You take care ! I am not a religious nut & hope people wont take this comment as such ! god bless Candypq
Hi Ranger98, Yes, the power of prayer is what gets me through my life. I had so many things happen and God is always there for me. He has tested me, but will never test you any futher than you can handle. If for some of you reading are not sure how to pray, just talk to him like you would talk to a friend. He already knows what you are going to pray about and what you need. May God bless you guys!
I am a firm believer in prayer. It has kept me alive. I recently started taking Sonata for sleep (PTSD) and felt a wave of depression since then. I woke up this am feeling my worst and when I am depressed I have difficulty praying. I feel so empty even though I know God knows what is happening. Have you ever felt that way? I watched my church service on the internet bc I could not get out of bed. When my prayer life is weak, I feel lost. Comments welcome
Yes Every morning i would pray at my bedside an i believe that if you put your trust in him he will bring people and answers to your door. But you must believe even when you are in the worst of pain. It does help, there were days i could not shower or wash my hair. I believe these things make us stronger and closer to god.
How ever i have seeked at a new treatment center Called Fibromyalgia and Fatigue centers there is always hope
People like us are understress to take care of our family there was days i had so much guilt I started chest pains, racing heart I found reading was a way to get through I start my day listening to "what a wonderful world"
And have finally alowed my self to know that its ok to have bad days
And there is a reason for everything.
