My students made me cry...

Ok...update. I'm apparently healthy. Well...at least physically. All the test results were normal. All except the occasional extra beat my heart will take. (But they aren't worried, so I'll say that the extra beat is just for Erin! That must get me some bonus points right?)

So now I've been told I need to get some rest. Go for a walk. Talk to a professional. And sleep.

I know that's the simple version and sounds easy, right? But you'd be impressed by just how difficult I can make the easiest of tasks.

This is all new to me. I'm used to broken bones and torn ligaments. I'm not used to no sleep and racing minds.

I think I'm learning a lesson about trust.

I shared a bit of my journey with my high school group tonight. Then they asked to surrounded me to pray. Then the tears started. And while I still attempt to wrestle/wade/journey through this season of life one night at a time, I am reminded of God's love and the love of others.

Tears are a release and healing too (at least that's what I tell myself)...Mike...didn't know so much that you were in a place like that although I know how stupid busy things have been. praying for you RIGHT NOW my friend.

I obviously don't know exactly what you're going through, but it sounds a lot like what I went through a couple years back with funky heart beats, racing mind, sleeplessness, exhaustion, and anxiety. If you ever want someone to talk to that's been there before give me a call. If you don't have my number just direct message me on Twitter and I'll get it to you.
