Please pray for me - serious allergies
« on: February 22, 2012, 03:05:08 AM »
Please pray for my healing.

I have multiple allergies to drugs, food, pollens, dust, and inhalants, as well as multiple chemical sensitivities.

My worst allergies are to grass and barley (well, barley is a grass). My allergist said that these grass allergies can trigger an anaphylactic reaction.

So, I have been trying to avoid barley which causes dizziness, spaciness, and even amnesia.

I just found out that not only beer, all-purpose flour, most breads, crackers, and donuts contain barley, but also farm-raised fish, chicken, and cattle may be fed barley or beer sludge. In fact, here is an interesting article about processed beer sludge being used as fish food for salmon.

Please pray that my allergies to grasses, corn, oatmeal, and barley may be neutralized.

Lord have mercy.

St. Pantaleimon, pray for us.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Sorry to hear all this.

May the Lord have mercy upon you and grant you good health and an allergy-free life.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Lord have mercy.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

I offer my unworthy prayer to St. Nektarios the
Wonder Worker for his intercessions on your behalf, dear Maria.

May Panaghia help undo the confusion of this allergy, and show you a clear path to managing it.

Kyrie eleison! Kyrie Eleison! Kyrie Eleison!

Lord please bring quick aid to your servant, Maria. AMEN.

Thanks everyone for your prayers.

Please pray that I can find a doctor who can neutralize my allergies through sublingual drops as injections did not work.

I will be praying for you.  I have a family member who also has allergies and was put on a specific diet by her doctor.  She also has problems with incense in church.
Listen to your doctor and try to educate yourself about your helath problems/ issues.  Don't give up in the struggle to make important life changes.
