Please pray for me.  I'm not feeling well, and I'm having a hard time getting doctors to figure out what's wrong, as well as managing my other work on top of it.

Holy Unmercinaries and Wonderworkers, visit our infirmities. Freely you have received, freely give.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Thank you all for your prayers.  For a time I was starting to feel better, with one correct diagnosis, but I am starting to suspect another underlying problem that may not be easy to treat.  I am also having to ask for mercy on the uncompleted work that I have not been able to finish, which makes me nervous as I have already been asking for much from them.  If anyone will pray for my healing and for those who oversee my work to be inclined to help me, I would deeply appreciate it.

Please pray for me again, if you will.  I'm finally starting to get better, but I'm running out of time on several important things, and I'm worried the stress will cause another setback.
