Do not remember how many days I stay at the hospital at that time. My beloved neighbor, Wilma was the only one helping me. No sign of any of my children. I do remember that it was Mother’s Day. My daughter living closest to me makes her appearance at last. They discharged yours truly. Back home alone again.
I received a call from my youngest daughter. She had searched Google for my symptoms. She informs me. The symptoms of low sodium are the same as the ones for high sodium. WHAT? I had been misdiagnosed for all those years! First thing, I quit the Lasix water pills I have been inhaling for such a long time. I began to salt my foods. Then I got info on how to detox my body and put it to practice. Immediately huge improvement in my health.
Four months later? WOW! It was a Saturday on September 15, 2007. I was keeping the 7th Day of Rest all by my lonesome. I was reading an article written by Yedidah on Daniel 8. Suddenly! It came to me something to this effect, “Such is the message I have given to you to proclaim to the world. You are no longer doing so. You cannot hear Me any longer because, you are too busy taking care of the home bound. Because your spirit is sleeping and your mind is dull with all those pills that you are taking.”
Immediately, I got up. I headed to the kitchen. I grabbed my pill big box. I headed to the toilet. I proceeded to flush nearly $1000.00 of prescription drugs I have been faithfully swallowing for that many years. I came back to the computer. I wrote a resignation letter to my position as a volunteer in the Senior Companion Program. I picked up the phone and cancelled all appointments with 5 specialists in-charged of my health. I made a note to prepare to sell my Kia Sophia.
