Alive because God wants to...


Hi guys...

The good news is that i am alive.

On saturday night, i had an allergic reaction to the med i am taking. The probabilities for that is 1 out of 10000. I guess i am the one..lol..My brother showed up and that saved me. I really am starting to think God really wants me here.

Well then my dad came and they had a hard time to even hold me, cuz
i was going hyperactive as it can be. In the hospital they had to tie my hands and legs. When i woke up and saw that i was so devastated.

I don't remember nothing of this i am writing. It's what i've been told.
It's a blank page in my brain.
All i know is that if i wasn't young and healthy, i would not have made it.
My heart was racing like crazy, being 23 and doing sports, i guess it helped.

So yesterday i was released from the hospital. But we had to go back to the doctor's cuz i was allergic to the new med too....Some shots after
and bam, i was ready to find a bed and sleep...lol..

Wow..it really looks like God wants me to pull trough. I think my family thought they were gonna lose me. I think it brought the family of us 4 together...

Today i am just happy to be alive, i wish i could be alone at the house now, but i can't until we're sure this med won't act up.



God bless!

Wow, Karim, I am so sorry that happened to you. What bad luck!

But, it truly does mean that god is watching over you and he has a plan that includes you being here with us.

I hope you can get your meds sorted out and find one that works for you.

thanks guys....you are great!

as the days pass i'll start recovering, but more than that; my faith is rising.
And i am starting to believe there's a good future out there for me...It's been
so many concidences in the last months..I think i am starting to actually love myself...And that's one of my purposes in this land...

thanks much!

Sometimes we need a big trouble to appreciate what we got...And one the things i got is your incredible support, the love of my family in a time of need, and love from a special person.

I am so glad you are here too.
Yes..It seems you do have a purpose.
And sometimes it takes something so drastic to wake us up.
He works in mysterious ways ...so they say.
I too am a believer.
Hope your feeling better.

I'm sorry you had that experience Karim, and I'm glad to hear you're doing OK.

A few weeks ago I heard something at a meeting that I can't forget, I keep repeating it over and over in my head.......

We can't run from God's grace forever, we can't escape His grace when we open our hearts, minds, and souls.

karim,
Whew! That must have been so scary. I'm so glad to hear you are okay. I hope things work out well with the new meds and that you feel better soon.

I'm so glad it all worked out they way it did for you, Karim. A bit maudlin, perhaps, but I'm reminded of something I heard at a meeting many years ago, "Live every day as though it's your last, because someday it will be." Hopefully, yours won't be for another 60-70 years...that should give you plenty of time to fulfill God's plan for you.

Karim,

It was when I was at my lowest that I felt god in my life more than ever. I no longer cared about much of anything, but apparently god had a plan for my life. You are doing great and having faith is what it's all about.

thanks....it does really mean a lot to me!..no words to describe those kind words from all you...All i know is that to everyday there's a tomorrow, but now is my only guaranty...and so i live one day at a time.

I actually think God wants me to go through a little loneliness so i can become me , and only then will i be able to balance my relationships. Another thing i've learned is that if people deserve you they will be there when you come back.

i live with that hope, and a lot of hope on myself.:ghug3

Karim, I *knew* you had a purpose long before this awful incident, but I am glad that you are taking the positive out of it and that you are ok and that you are filled with hope. You are truly a *Godsend* to many...Hugs, J
