Here is a brief sharing to everyone about my health. Apart from epilepsy, I was diagnosed with MCTD (Mixed Connective Tissue Disease) on January 2012. MCTD is an autoimmune disease in which the body's defense system attacks itself. MCTD commonly causes join pain/swelling, malaise, Raynaud phenomenon, Sjogren's syndrome, muscle inflammation and sclerodactyly (thickening of the skin of the pads of the fingers).
I suffer from all the above which made sitting, walking, standing and lying down to be torturously painful. Fortunately I had been able to avoid taking oral steroid for all the nightmarish pain. I took all the pain in stride and relied on my daily prayers to God for His spiritual and miracle healing of my new disease. God listened and answered my prayers for healing. Although this is a chronic disease which can recur at any time, I am certain God will always heal me of all my illnesses because He is the mighty and eternal healer of all our sicknesses. Amen and all glory to God on High.
I attended a health awareness event organised by The Star paper last Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Epilepsy Malaysia had an awareness booth at the event and my member friends and I were there to help run the booth and promote awareness of epilepsy. I will be writing more about this event in my next article here.
Looking forward to hearing from everyone again. Wishing everyone good health always.
