    Introduction

    Hi I've recently joined. Currently my family is going through a really difficult time. My husband has been unemployed for a year. He has bleeding ulcers and we can't afford proper treatment for him. The stress on us and my young daughter is immense. I have to put on a mask at work, stay professional. At times I wonder what is the lesson we are supposed to learn.

    Sorry to read about your personal difficulties ...

    BTW, welcome to TOL.
    As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes."
    When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics."
    When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty
    -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocrisy.

    Winter started with a bang today. And it is raining now too. How bad are the floods?

    Nin,

    Welcome to TOL.

    I pray the Lord will give you solutions soon that improve your husband's health.
    Stress is cumulative.

    My son has cured a similar problem with natural foods.
    Religion is man's attempt to make himself acceptable to God. Christianity is God making man acceptable to Himself.
