About me

I have a severe hearing impairment.   I am a PhD Candidate in medieval history.   That explains the name of the blog.  I have one awesome husband and three usually awesome cats.  I am a Christian; I have denominational identity crisis, being currently a Presbyterian but wishing I were a Lutheran or maybe even a Catholic.   In any case I take God, Jesus, the Eucharist, and all points of theology pretty seriously.   I love to debate stuff – hey, I’m an academic, and we all like challenges.

I also have infertility due to endometriosis.  I have horrific, debilitating pain every month. Surgical treatment doesn’t seem to be an option, because most of the growths are on my Fallopian tubes, and no one wants to risk damaging them.

I have started having vertigo, which incapacitates me at least three days a month and is a mystery to all my doctors.

All these stressors have built up until they’ve made me have very bad insomnia for over two years.

I think that’s way too much to be coping with, hence this blog.

    I’m so sorry to read about your health concerns as well as the horrible time you’ve had with doctors. I can only imagine how painful infertility can be. I feel lead to encourage you with the reminder that Jesus loves you and He died to validate you; you are infinitely valuable to Him and He desires to be your strength and your comfort as you go through these trials. I’m praying for your health situation and your future family plans. God bless and have a happy Thanksgiving!

    • Thank you for your encouragement! Psalms 6 and 18 have been my constant prayers in the past two years. It helps to remember that David was also sick, weary, in pain, and was inspired to record the ache in his heart and soul. I love knowing that I can bring even my depression and despair to God, and that he is still my rock and my fortress and my deliverer.
      Happy Thanksgiving!

    Have you tried finding a NAPRO doctor in your area. I have had 3 miscarriages and I met a Catholic NAPRO doctor who discovered my severe estrogen and progesterone deficiencies. Here is a site where you can locate a doctor near you. http://www.popepaulvi.com/index.php
