Well, I spent yesterday and last night crying over the disaster in church yesterday morning.  My kids want me to stop ministry again, at least until have seen a neurologist (however long that waiting list is.)

I've made an appointment to see my GP tomorrow to look at how to handle this awful brain fog until I finally get that appointment.

This morning, I spoke to the Presbytery Minister.  I'm now on leave until the end of the month - then I am finishing up in this role.  He says there will be work around any time I feel well enough to handle it again.

 So, now it's back to Centrelink - to tell them I'm not working any more, so hopefully, my pension will be increased again.

Yesterday, all of this seemed overwhelming.  This morning, in my prayer time, I started to feel at peace.  I don't know how I'll survive financially.  I don't know if I'm getting better or worse. Half the time I don't even know what day of the week it is. But somewhere in this, God is with me.

The decision, at least for the immediate future, has been made, now.  Whatever happens, God will take care of me.

So, on to tell Centrelink the news.

Oh, and if you've ever considered buying one of my teeshirts or books  - anytime now would be great (I'm going to need the money.)


  1. Good luck Iris. You're a good lady, and the world will help to take care of you. Matt
