Title: Really tired and stressed
Post by: Volnutt on December 05, 2011, 09:22:52 PM
I'm feeling really overwhelmed right now. I have a lot of things I need to get done by finals next Wednesday and I'm really struggling with apathy and fatigue. My stomach isn't taking the stress very well.

Please pray.

May the Lord have mercy and grant you peace of mind so you can organize your to-do's and accomplish them quickly, completely and successfully!

Father, thank you that you are right there with us even in the most difficult and stressful of times. Help us to know what positive things energise us to cope with the busy parts of life and to get the work/play balance right for us. Thank you that you can give us peace and stillness when life is chaotic and that through prayer and supplication (Phil 4:6) when we make our requests known to you we can experience a release from the grip of anxiety. Thank you that you have given us each other for support and love.

In Jesus name, Amen.

When it rains, it pours. Not only am I now developing what I hope is just a cold, but I fell on the ice and painfully injured my knee. This is going to make finals even more difficult. Please pray.

November too, actually  :laugh: I caught the original bug last year on Thanksgiving brake.

Thanks for the prayers, folks. I just my teacher will understand if she has to accept an email of my final if I can barely shower tomorrow.

Didn't think to for some reason, actually...

Doesn't really need it now though, thanks.

FWIW. Traction > icing. I don't ice anything. It actually doesn't make a lot of sense and haven't done it for that reason for forever and even most sports docs are now moving away from it.

For "sprains" immediate traction and movement are highly recommended. The guy who literally wrote the book or shot the video on it was in my neck of the woods along with the sports mind who created the prehabiltation protocol for women's prevention of knee injury due their greater Q angle.

Having wider hips than most males my size and thus having a greater Q angle meant I had to get with a similar protocol. Thankfully these folks were around were I lived and were starting just as I was struggling with chronic knee pain.

Icing a sprain anymore is sorta from the stone age IMHO.

Thanks for your prayers, y'all.

Knee feeling better. Should be ok by next semester, assuming they don't pull my financial aid. I wound up failing Anthropology for not getting a paper in on time. :-[ I hope I won't have to drop out.

My Orthodox brethren, Christ is in our midst! Pray for me, the sinful servant of God, Haralambos. I am student teaching this semester and I need all the prayers that I can get. I am doing my student teacher at a Middle and High school. I am also applying to several graduate programs. I'm also broke which doesn't help the situation.

Christ is born!
Haralambos

(also, my adviser was once Orthodox but has now become "backslidden" if I may use baptist terms. She needs prayer more that I do. Her name is Gail.)
