by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – Drug Addicts
Editor’s note: I leave you with this very toxic last little bit that is entirely without merit. Michael gives medical advice and then doubles down on blaming mother for any health problems as ‘sins’. Sorry, but it’s not always that easy of a fix if you have a disease. Medicine might be required and decent legitimate medical care from a professional be the difference between struggling along sickly, or dying and living a full life.
A good colon cleanse, followed by a careful diet, would greatly help this problem. Take responsibility for your own health. Discipline yourself not to take the fast, easy cure, which leads to greater problems. Drugs are not the answer. In the end you are a “Whole Woman,” just like the article we wrote on the “Whole Boy.” The answer requires more than just a pill or a chat with a health expert. You must be willing to call sin sin. Go to the library and learn how to take care of your body; then get out into the sunshine with a heart of thanksgiving, running, jumping, and laughing, whether you feel like it or not. Find some way to minister to others that is both creative and rewarding. Stop playing pity party. That scene will grow tiresome to your children, as they get older. Take command of your life. Choices you made caused you to be sick. Now make the choices necessary to be well again.
