hi everyone. i was just wondering if you could pray for my brother again. he is in the very sick and is in the hospital. i am trying to help him but he is pushing me away and i don't know why. so i thought i could at least pray for him and ask my friends here at neurotalk if they would pray for him to get better too. thanks for all of your support. hugs to all.

Remember this
And also
Like myself
My daughter
My son
We had to get down on our knees
Addiction is just as painful as the physical pain we feel
Only
To have lost the privilege
To be a part of life on life's terms
I rather say
Life on Gods terms
We ARE given free will
I will pray for you and your brother
And for all the addicts out there
God bless
Here to lean on
Love
Me

RSD ME,

I am sure there will come a point where your brother turns to you and realises he needs the support you offer. It is hard, walking that self-destructive path, to admit you need help and harder to reach out to family.

You are doing everything you can and everything right. Just wait in hope and keep praying as we will with you.

Dave.

Hi,

I am praying for healing for your brother and strength for you in your support of him. It is so often when we are unwell that we fall into the arms of those who love us and realize how much we need them. I hope that the gift of clarity comes to your brother out of this, to see the wonderful support he has in you and to take solace in it. May he get well soon.

Sending healing love,

hi everyone. thank you all so much for caring so much about me and my brother. i'm sorry i haven't responded sooner but i've been pretty sick this past week. my rsd pain is flaring because of all the stress and weather changes that i am dealing with right now. but i'm trying to rest as much as i can so i can feel a little better. my brother seems to be doing a little better. he is out of the hospital after eight days there because of health problems due to his addiction and seems to be in good spirits. i am praying that he will continue to get better and i thank all of you for your kindness, support and prayers too. i couldn't handle all this without the help of all of you. i hope and pray that you are all doing well and that you have a wonderful day. hugs to all.

hi everyone. i was wondering if you could pray some more for my brother. he is still struggling with his addictions and has now distanced himself from me. i worry about him every day but know now that i cannot help him until he is ready to get the help he needs to get better and be happy again. i am praying for him too every day and leaving it in God's hands now. i know He will help him find his way back to the brother I used to know. thanks for listening. i just needed to talk.
p.s. i still feel so guilty and lost because i told my brother that even though i will always love him, i had to distance myself from him until he was ready to get help. the stress on trying to deal with him was affecting my already compromised health and making me more sick causing me stomach problems. i miss him so much and want to reach out to him and tell him i still love him and wish him a Merry Christmas but i am afraid that he will stress me out again because of his addiction and mental illness. it's so hard and so painful to be dealing with this, especially during the holidays. i am very sad and miss my brother. i hope he returns to me one day as the person i once knew before addiction came into his life.

I have been thinking about you and your brother over the past few days. Sorry things have taken this turn. Be patient, you do have to look after yourself first.
