Hurricane harvey

Hi, my house and all belongings were 100% destroyed and blown away from the hurricane. When I saw it I went into shock and felt my heart flip back into afib.

Now I am not feeling the rapid heartbeats but my energy level has now dropped to going to the grocery store makes me tired. I can't see my doctor until the middle of October. Do you think that maybe this is just stress related and as the shock wears off it will get better.

Wow, that was some shock for you!

Yes, I feel sure your low energy is more than likely caused by the shock you've had. Really feel for you and hope you soon feel better. Where are you staying at the moment and how are you sleeping now?

Big hug.

Jean

So sorry to hear about everything you are going through. How is your heart now? Sending love and positive thoughts from Ireland to you. We prayed for those affected by the hurricane in mass and my children have been praying and asking about it all. Many people around the world are thinking of you all xx

It is so nice to know that we are being prayed for in Ireland. We are waiting to see which way God will lead us on this chapter of our life. My heart has settled down a little and I really appreciate your prayers.
