God's Problem, a poem of love


Our God is; magnificent creator

Holy and pure

All powerful, master of the universe.

He fills the earth, the heavens,

Always near, never far.


We are

Made in his image

Creative, emotional, spiritual,

Eternal. Loved.

Precious, unique, special



His gift to us, priceless

The freedom to choose

Our own path

Right or wrong

To believe in him or not


Evil entered the world,

Man fell.

No one would be perfect again

Now sinful, rebellious, selfish

Separate from God, empty, lost



God’s problem, we are his

Obsession. His love

Extravagant, overflowing

Perfect and pure

Unconditional



His solution, sacrifice

He pursued us

Jesus Christ, gave up glory

Came to earth, a man

Paid the price, death, for us



The result, life

For us, an opportunity

Friendship, harmony

Intimacy with our creator

God



Our privilege, accept

Unconditional love

A life of purpose

At peace

Forgiven


Or reject his sacrifice

Live our life

As we please

For ourselves

Unforgiven



The choice, is ours to make

Hi Lindsay and Amy,I really hope you reply even tughoh it has been 2 years since you\’ve posted on here… I\’m so glad to have found this site. My name is Nichole and I am almost 23 years old, I have suffered with NDPH since I was 16. I was a Sophomore in high school, it was near the end of 2006 when I got sick with bronchitis and the flu and coughed and coughed and noticed I had a really terrible headache with it. Once the sickness went away I noticed that the migraine, that pain in my head that had been so foreign to me prior to this, had not gone away, and still has not to this day… I had to be home schooled and quit all of my sports I was a part of… My \”friends\” went on with their lives and forgot about me while I had a constant 24/7 pain that I could not get rid of no matter how hard I tried or how much it killed me, physically and mentally. We began with Chiropractors, decompression machines, adjustments, etc. I traveled hours to probably 20 different Chiropractors that all said that they knew what I had and exactly how to treat it. I\’ve tried natural supplements, over the counter medications, 6 Occipital nerve blocks in the back of my head, massage, diets of no wheat, no gluten, no sugar, vegan only, all with no progress. My family understands the pain and how I can be \”ok\” one minute but then pick up something slightly too heavy, walk a little too fast, sit down a little too hard and I will have to be in my room with blankets over my windows and absolutely no sound because the pain is so unbearable. It is so frustrating because I too feel like a burden, like ok you have a headache so what? Why can\’t you stay out late or get up early or work long shifts or run around and be active? But it is so much more than a headache… It\’s become a way of life and although I think I handle it well I know that deep down I am depressed and deeply saddened by it because anytime I stop to think about it or talk to anyone about it I cry instantly. Lindsay, I too have tried the things you have with no help and at Cleveland Clinic where they did my nerve blocks they told me about the program where you stay there for an amount of time. My option they told me about when staying there was a few weeks, they would put me on all these medications and steroid medications, have physical therapy and counseling as well. They also said the FDA would soon be approving the Botox injections, I\’m sorry those did not help you either… NDPH has altered my life drastically, I can\’t work as much, I can\’t run around and just be free, I can\’t take a full load of classes at a time… Basically I just want to thank you for having this site Amy, it is really more helpful than you know, just knowing that I\’m not the only one to suffer from this and that I\’m not the only one that has this pain to think about every single second of every day…Bless you and bless all your readers, may you all find relief from the pain -Nichole

Good Morning Nichole, I am very sorry to hear about your pain. I also hope that Lindsay and Amy will find relief. I am fortunate that my problems are not painful. I suffer from dizziness, extreme fatigue, unbalance, pressure in my head and tinnitus. I hope you find the following information helpful.

At the end of this month, I am going to Bethesda Maryland to try a new procedure called brain mapping. The doctor's name is Mary Esty. Here is her website:http://www.brainsake.com/ I think you might find it encouraging. Dr. Esty has just written a book on one of her studies called Conquering Concussions. Although your pain stems from headaches, it might be interesting to read.

My mom was in an accident and had a brain injury several years ago and it became very hard for her to function. The brain mapping has changed her life, she is now able to run her own business.

It sounds like you might be about 6 hours from Bethesda so it might be worth a try. Since this is new technology it took my mom several years to hear about it and it usually isn't covered by insurance. Although she says it really isn't as expensive as the other things she has tried.

I hope you can find relief! Sincerely, April

I have had headaches for the last 8 years. Some days are bteetr than others. Over 30 different medicines over the years that were of no help. I even tried Botox .Been to 4 neurologists in that span. Finally went to the Cleveland Clinic in March of this year. After meeting with my doctor and telling him about my headaches, he diagnosed me with NDPH. Cleveland Clinic wanted me to go to an outpatient program called IMATCH for 3 weeks. Monday-Friday from 8-5. I considered it until they told me that there would be 1-4 copays every day. That and I would have to stay at a hotel every night at a discount rate of 80.00. What I'm getting at is it would have cost a small fortune. After thinking hard about the cost, I was checking on line and found the Diamond Headache Clinic in Chicago. It was an inpatient and I was to stay at the hospital for 5-15 days. I did end up going (12 hour drive) and stayed for 11 days. I felt a lot bteetr when I was discharged. They sent me home with 5 new meds and I was headache free for about a week. The headaches are back but not as severe as before. I am scheduled to go back next week for a follow up appointment. It is so frustrating going thru this. My home life and sex life has been a real struggle for my wife and myself. I wouldn't wish this on anybody. My daughter will be 13 in a couple of months and I just want to feel normal and do the father things with her while she still lives with us. My family means the world to me and sometimes I think that it isn't fair to them that I'm this way. Thanks for letting me vent. Hope you have a nice weekend!!

I am sorry for your frustration. Perhaps you should read my article above and you might find some peace. You should look into Biofeedback. there is info on the Brainsake website. I am not going to approve your comment because I don't need to hear about your sex life. Enjoy your day.
