Thank you all so much for the help. I'm definitely saving that prayer for the future.And Lyric, I hope I haven't hijacked your thread, but your situation reminded me so much of my own. How are things going for you now?
The only update I have is that the night I posted this, when I was laying in bed, it felt like something suddenly hit me in the face. It didn't hurt, and it wasn't the same feeling physically as if I'd actually been hit, but my body reacted exactly as if I had been hit, if that makes sense. All of a sudden my eye and the entire side of my face flinched exactly as though something had suddenly hit me in the eye and also the side of my face...like an eye poke feels but without any pain. I've never felt anything like it. Hopefully I'm explaining this well, it's hard to put these things into words sometimes. That scared me but nothing has happened since and to be honest since talking to you all my anxiety about it has lessened a bit now.
I have just one question, although I'm afraid to put it into words in case it should invite something. It's about whether or not it's possible for these things to cause you pain or hurt you. Is it safe to talk about that?
