Eliminate problems and live lighter

There are days that are so boring with the face of the first Monday after the holidays. Everything goes wrong, you expect anything to happen to brighten your day but everything that comes in to meet is just to disrupt it even more and make it worse than it is. People irritate you, your message…

Why did God forsake me? Surviving the storms

We all go through very painful times in life. We learn that God will guard us, protect us and deliver us, but every now and then we go through a storm in which we seem to be carried by it, we lose the ground and we do not know where to go, we are totally…

Learn to say no

This phrase brings the freedom that we would all like to have – being able to say no to anyone – but for a chronic disease sufferer this is a necessity because he has to live with a limited life that does not let him do a lot of things. It seems very easy to…
