lifes full of miracles

Big ol' prayer request

So it would appear I have hemochromatosis. It means I have an overabundance of iron in my blood.

Having too much iron damages your organs and if left untreated can be fatal. But!! If caught and treated early, you can go on to lead a full life.

The treatment is kind of unfortunate though. You have to get a pint of blood drawn once (or more, depending on the severity) a week until your numbers go back down to normal. After that, you get the blood drawn every few months.

You have to have your iron levels carefully monitored and have periodic phlebotomy sessions for the rest of your life.

I don’t know how long I’ve had it, or if any damage has been done to my organs. I’m really scared.

Please pray that we caught it early and i can live a full life. Better yet, pray for a miracle.

Moon in the 6th house -  Cosmic Candy-striper

From the shadows of a hanging moon, Moon in the 6th house people diffuse charity from the backdrop. The moon hides away, and the 6th house suggests subordinate positions. People with Moon in the 6th house are emotionally devoted to causes beyond personal. This therapeutic nature will extend toward their professional focus, domestic life, and even schooling. Something soothing illuminates through the individual, a calling to serve and save. The inner child may be somewhat neglected with Moon in the 6th, forced to relinquish longstanding needs to oblige others. Everyone else’s problems are always more important. There can be an admirable, although at times destructive tendency to self sacrifice on behalf of other people. The individual feels compelled to help and lend a hand, even if she is exhausted or unwell herself. Because the 6th house emphasizes health and wellness, the individual’s self neglect may result in significant ailment. The 6th house signifies small pets and animals. The person with Moon in the 6th may have a pet or many animals that can love her and she can love even more.

The Moon is forever moving and she can be volatile, so employment can be a frequent flux. The individual may constantly change jobs or fail to settle in at employment, despite negating a tremendous need for structure. It can be common for Moon in the 6th people to take on the mothering role in the workplace. She may be involved with roles that involve working for women or advocating on behalf of women’s needs. The relationship with her own mother is quite resonant, considering in moments of chaos or confrontation she becomes like the small, frail child she used to be. This stems from a dissociation in childhood, a possible inability to communicate problems with the mother. The individual becomes conditioned to invalidate her own feelings while emphasizing other people’s. The 6th house suggests components of health. The moon waxes and worries and induces nausea. It also generates ritualistic habits, responses to stress or deep psychological needs. So the individual may develop health concerns, especially relating to the stomach and digestive system. When she is under distress, and especially if this is work related, it is possible her gastric problems will re-emerge.The person with Moon in the 6th is significantly invested in the professional life. Emotions are sublimated through the work, and it may become a source of solace for the individual, and this commonly resulting in exhaustion and burn out. It is important for the person to find a workplace that is tranquil, friendly, and involves sympathetic human contact.

She may work overtime to negotiate or neglect emotional needs or indulge in emotionally blunting vices like drugs or alcohol or sex. When daily life works like clockwork, the individual feels balanced and emotionally well, but this is so rare because nothing in life ever seems still. There is a high attention to detail with Moon in the 6th, a perfectionism that emanates from a very wounded inner place. The individual may have never felt good enough for the mother, and therefore tries to please her exceptional standards. It is therefore crucial that she develops a counsel for the inner child and learns how to self soothe. There can be a hyper sensitivity to pain, anxiety about health conditions, or panic when a new symptom arises. Health can become an obsession of life and a way to blunt the inner turmoil. With Moon in the 6th, the lunar pharmacy disperses soothing moon water, a syrup of peace and healing. A sort of peace sweeps over the person as she stirs her morning coffee or watches the sun bleed through the window. Life can be full of tiny, awe inspiring miracles because she is so sensitive. She inhales a cigarette and the smoke curls in patterns only she can see. She sews the fabric of the moon

Bad things will happen and good things too. Your life will be full of surprises. Miracles happen only where there has been suffering. So taste your grief to the fullest. Don’t try and press it down. Don’t hide from it. Don’t escape. It is life too. It is truth. But it will pass and time will put a strange honey in the bitterness. That’s the way life goes.

Okay its Sex Ed Week (do they still do this?) at OWH. Which students blush like crazy and which say "pssh I already knew this."? And who is the one that volunteers (or forced) to hold the banana while the teacher puts the condom on it? And who are the ones that faint when watching "The Miracle of Life" (y'know the one with the full frontal live birth).

OHHHH MY GOD…..

  • mercy keeps on telling everyone that its very important to know all of this!! stop being so immature UGH!!
  • dva lucio and genji takes sex ed week as an invitation to draw dicks on EVERYTHING “we’re just practicing for our sex ed test, ma’am. being able to draw dicks is part of our curriculum”
  • mei watches the birthing video and then later the disease photos with disinterest. she’s seen waaay worse in science videos
  • zarya is complaining because sex ed replaced gym period for a week “this is a waste of my time” she does push ups at the back of the classroom and doesnt pay attention. (mei has to help her label diagrams and name diseases later in tutoring)
  • tracer is giggling during the ENTIRE FUCKING CLASS like a quiet laugh track in the background
  • genji volunteers to put the condom on the banana in front of the class and keeps on making really suggestive gestures and the teacher like steers him back to his seat and asks for another volunteer
  • junkrat and roadhog mysteriously skips class for week
  • mccree raises his hand “so how many calories in a teaspoon of cum, ma’am?”
  • when hanzo has to put the condom on the banana he glares at EVERYONE and like rips it because of how furiously he shoved it on the banana
  • symmetra takes sex ed very seriously and can perfectly replicate the uterus and dick diagrams and has all the names like fallopian tube or whatever memorized. she’s done nude model drawing sessions before so this is nothing to her.

Full stage of Miracle - Jeong Sewoon

A Rose-Petal Occasion

Based on the prompt: Haruka and Mina, please never listen to yourself on this subject, given to me by two anons, and I think rosepetalrevolution

Anyhow, I’m not super happy with it, but, it’s done, it’s about 6k words, and it is, THE OTP WEDDING

“I can’t wait to show you what I’m wearing. Definitely appropriate for such a festive occasion.” Mina smiled brightly, a dress bag in her hand.

Haruka looked up from buttoning her shirt, the conversation running through her head. Oh, just buy a black dress, whatever you want. Clearly, she had been drunk on the joy of Michiru agreeing to marry her, or she would have demanded veto power. Now, there was only wonder at what she possibly could have thought appropriate.

What's your favorite book?

Not to sound cliché, but the Bible. I love it for so many reasons, I read it beyond just because of my faith in God and relationship with Christ, and I have read it since I was a child up and will the rest of my life. It’s transformative, life-giving, historical, full if truth and history and culture…it’s stories, miracles, hope, loss, poetry, and the most beautiful narrative I have ever found. Not only that, but it is written by a collection if authors and writing styles that are truly remarkable and different. It’s been translated from various original languages into mine, which studied that alone is mind-blowing. I can read it over and over and it still speaks to me and I find new things every time. I’m always going to be learning by studying it. I will never understand fully all of it, which means there’s always more depth for me to find in it. It applies to my life and relationships with others, it engages my past, present and future… There really aren’t enough words to say why the Bible is my favorite book. The reason is because to me, it’s not just a book. It’s the Word of God, and it gives me life.
