Good Things Come To Those That Wait

Sometimes I feel like a baby turtle. I've got this shell to protect me, but I don't feel protected. All I know is that I have got to trudge my way to the sea ~ that's where I belong. I am so small and yet the ocean seems so powerful and daunting. I persevere, give it all I've got ~ the waves hit me with the force of a hurricane. Just when I think I am getting closer I am shoved back by a big wave. Thus is my journey to the Chiari Institute (CI).

I feel as if I have come a far way since finding out about my brain tail. I've gone through the motions of seeing specialists, endured 2 MRI's and have managed to keep my sanity. Today started out with a big feeling of defeat. I have left numerous messages for the CI and have gotten nothing but voice mail messages. Throw me a bone here ~ at least acknowledge that my voice has been heard! I am particularly dizzy today and have a head ache. My head is swimming and it's hard to keep a thought in my brain for more than a couple of seconds. I was wanting to curl up in a ball and hide from the world for a while until...

When I get to the end of my rope I try to give my current struggle up to God ~ after all, he's in charge. I have to remember that things don't always happen in my timing, but His. So after I did that, I checked my e-mail and there was an answer ~ definitely not one I was expecting ~ in fact, it's better than I could have imagined! Here's the exact message from the CI:
