My dear friends in Christ. Please pray for me for healing from thyroid disease (hypothyroidism), anxiety disorder including lightheadedness, fear of blacking out, general fear and low spirits, poor sleep and nightmares, social avoidance, and consequent inability to work and earn money. Thank you and bless you.

I was wondering if you could pray for me to be miraculously healed by the Holy Spirit of several afflictions, including low thyroid production, poor sleep, social avoidance, anxiety/panic, constant lightheadedness and sense of unreality. Could you please? I hope so because I'm pretty desperate and weak. Thanking you in advance. God bless you.

The filling is doing well; I forgot all about it within hours; so thanks so much for that. The antibiotics are keeping the abscess at bay, although I feel they have a fight on their hands as it were. But there's no pain at all, thank goodness. Hopefully by the end of the week, the swelling will go right down, if not, I guess I might have to keep taking the antibiotics. God willing, I'll call towards the end of the week about that; and the possible appointment for the root canal treatment we discussed. All the very best and hopefully speak to you soon. Best Wishes.

Hi, I was looking at your web site regarding the Unforgivable Sin. And I was moved to write. I've been through a terribly hard time now for about six months. I'm a 56 year old born again Christian male who's barely been sick in their entire existence, and who - fit and slim - looks about 15 years younger than their age. But prior to becoming a Christian, I was an alcoholic, and had bad experiences with alcohol and prescription drugs. It began with me suffering feelings of faintness and panic last September 2011, and fearing I'd die. It got so bad I could barely make it to the supermarket and back. My doctor diagnosed Panic, and suggested I take a blood test. This revealed a thyroid disorder (hypothyroidism), and I was put on Thyroxine. I still struggled with the faintness which was variously accompanied by tightness of chest, shortness of breath, palpitations. I thought I was getting ready to get heart trouble and shuffle off this mortal coil, for real. My doc also later suggested I was suffering from an anxiety disorder. My suffering has been compounded at various times by abscessed gum, toothache, sore tongue, mouth ulcer, and medication issues. I've honestly felt at times I was crumbling to pieces, and have struggled to eat, especially as I've five top teeth missing as it is. But these issues have all more or less cleared up by the Grace of God, and the faintness has also receded. Other good news is that my thyroid has levelled out, and my health is otherwise pretty good, with my blood pressure normal to low. But my problems have taken their toll. I'm sleeping poorly, and I've barely been to church in 6 months because of my issues. I feel terrible guilt about this. And recently, while I was putting the final touches to an extraordinarily fiddly task on the computer at home, something went horribly wrong, and I feared weeks of work would be ruined. I'm volatile at best, and inclined to wild mood swings, but this sent me almost berserk, and I said some awful things. I've been so miserable, fearing I've crossed a line with God. I couldn't repeat what I said because I'm so ashamed of it. I just can't believe God could forgive me this time...especially as I feel He's been warning me about staying away from church, and getting too deeply involved with worldly activities. I feel that had I been in better spiritual shape I'd not have spoken as I did. I do this repeatedly, and God forgives me each time, but I've never spoken as I did this time...and fear that I've finally gone too far. Is there any hope for me? I'd be so grateful for any words of comfort to me...God bless you.

Thank you so much for writing to me in response to my enquiry about Levothyroxine, As to why I prefer taking 4x25 mcg, as opposed to 1x100 mcg, I'm not certain. It may be that I got used to taking the four, and my system didn't like the adjustment to the 1x100 mcg; or it may be simply psychosomatic. From what I understand though, to be happy with Levothyroxine, the balance is quite delicate, and has to be gotten just right, so that a single 100 mcg tablet may vary very slightly with regard to 4x25 mcg. But then I'm just guessing. Again, thank so much for writing back to me, I appreciate it.  Edited 24/10/15
