    I'm scared, test tomorrow

    Some of you already know it but for those that don't, I lost my hero, my big brother in 09'. He is the one that got me into the fun of shooting. He was my only sibling.

    You fellows have done a brilliant job of taking me under your wing and helping me with my ignorance on the technical part of shooting and I do thank you all for that ~ I did have a husband a long time ago but he didn't know jack about guns, just everything about drinking.

    This thread is to request prayers, I go to my neurologist tomorrow for the first test (EMG) on determining if I have Neuropathy (as my Dad does) or MS. I'm terrified. Not of the test even thought I heard it hurts like heck, but of the "what if's". Will this mean I have to stop shooting? Being single with no kids I get pretty lonely and shooting I find not only fun but it takes stress and worries away, not to mention makes me safer since I am part of the weaker sex.

    With all the testosterone on this site, I try to always come across as not too "girly", but right now since I had to quit the job I loved, take a job I don't care for and now looking at having to quit that I'm probably at my lowest point and not feeling that big and bad.

    Being a Christian first, I'm sure this is exactly where that ol satan wants me but my rubber head bounces back pretty good and I know I'll get through this no matter what ~

    Thanks for listening.
    Matthew 10:33

    But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

    Praying for you now, Sister.

    This scripture came to mind:

    Romans 8:31; What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

    I'll certainly be praying for the best for you. You're also absolutely right about this is where satan wants you. He's a coward and only shows up in our moments of weakness and when we're already down.

    Please do keep us updated and try your best to stay positive!

    Best of luck to you Sister.

    If it is any consolation, I work with a woman who has MS and she is a darn good EMT. Not that I would understand but dont think that a diagnosis means you will have to give something up. It just means you know what it is. Dont ever let someone say you cant do something.

    And of course you are never alone:
    Psalm 23 verse 4, "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me."

    Prayers and thoughts will be with you Sister. 99% of us on DC have never met, and probably never will, but we are a family here that feels each others sorrow and concerns. May God bless you and grant you the strength to make it through you difficulties.

    Just sent a prayer to the Lord for you. Stay strong no matter what happens because this life is temporary and our bodies are weak, but our souls will continue on, and those who belong to the Lord will not let perish eternally.

    Best wishes to you Sister. I know that it may be rough for you now but we can assume that you're one tough cookie having lost your brother in '09. I can relate as I lost my younger brother whom I was very close to, unexpectedly in '07. Prayer sent.

    And by the way, no matter how much testosterone there is flying around, you can come across as girly as you wish, whenever you wish.
