About 3 in the morning I woke up with a racing heartbeat, nervousness, and sweats. I almost called 911 because I thought I was having a heart attack.
    During the next few weeks I tried to make sense of it. I then remembered watching the chefs at the open barbecue pit cooking the steaks. (It was the best and tenderest I had ever tasted). They were using large salt shaking cans to liberally coat the cooking meat. This did not make sense to me because I know that meat usually turns tough when salted during cooking. I finally found out it wasn't salt; they were using tenderizer! Monosodium glutamate!
    From then on I watched myself closely when I had potato chips or Chinese food. Sure enough, the same symptoms (hypertension) but milder depending on the quantity. Now I make sure I have none as best I can. Although, I know the industry can hide it too. Check out the web for ways it is hidden in the foods we eat.

    Blessings to you and prayers for your friend.

    Thank you George, I didn't think about it. Yes, I am sensitive to Monosodium glutamate. But, 90% of my food is cooked from scratch at home. I haven't gone out to eat in such a long time I don't even remember when was the last time I went out. I will definitely check to see the different names for Monosodium glutamate and include it in my list of items to check. I know immediately when something contains sucralose, even when it does not show in the label because I get black outs (literally everything goes black), can't see, can't talk, etc. People don't realize that to make sucralose they use two chlorine molecule. It is frightening. Thank you for your prayers.

    UPDATE: My friend called me a couple of days ago and said she had her first visit after the operation and the doctor said he is very happy with her progress. Her fever is gone, the color of her leg is getting better, and it seems that she is in much better spirits.

    UPDATE for ME: I seem to have been able to find a couple of natural remedies that seem to be working with my BP. BP not as bad as it has been for the past 10 years. I told my doctor I refused to take any more BP meds because they were not helping but harming me. Three different BP meds sent me to the ER with totally uncontrollable BP. Stopped particular BP regulates a bit before body getting used to next BP and next ER visit. I'll see what will happen from now on. Will keep you posted. If I have not come and said anything, it is because I am testing and really cannot say that I have found a solution, but I am so thankful to our Father in Heaven and Lord Jesus Christ for protecting me until this now.

    Thank you, all of you, for boldly going into the throne of grace and pleading on my behalf. I continue to pray for all of you.

    Praise God for His goodness!

    UPDATE: My friend is home and she is very happy with her operation. She said she can feel the difference from the previous one and progressing very well.

    UPDATE FOR ME: Still having BP spikes, however, not as bad as previously. Need prayers for traveling mercies. Have to travel no later than this week for sort of a emergency and am a little anxious over it. I know the Lord has everything under control and that all is well, so, why does the body does not agree with my brain and my heart. Thank you all for your prayers on my behalf.

    Hope all have had a wonderful Merry Christmas and wish for all of you a wonderful, prosperous, healthy 2019. Happy New Year!

    Please pray for my friend's son, suffering from Cystic Fibrosis, whose parents cannot afford the treatment he needs at the hospital.

    His name is Chase. He's 13 and often coughs up blood and has to be taken to the hospital. Sad.

    They did a bronchoscopy and found no reason for him to be coughing up blood. With no current discharge of blood: they released him.

    We get a prayer group going for him when he's hospitalized, then he's fine for a few weeks, then he coughs up blood and goes back to the hospital again and again. He's so young and it just feels so close to home.

    Father,

    We thank you for the memory we have of Angel4Truth. And for your special mercies that attend the homecoming of all your saints.

    Bless her daughter and enrich her with the knowledge that no harm can come to those who, by faith, find rest in the Lord.

    Amen
    Religion is man's attempt to make himself acceptable to God. Christianity is God making man acceptable to Himself.
