How Long?

I have been struggling with Sarcoidosis since 1997 (When I was diagnosed) I have Sarcoid involvement in my Lymph Nodes, eyes, liver, kidney, gums, bones, joints, and now it seems to be affecting my muscles too. I fel like Job at times, I do wish I wasn't born some days, no one understands my sufering not even my wife. The church keeps throwing cliches at me and I am tired of people telling me to believe God for I love the Lord of course I do! People somehow think the chronically ill ASKED for sickness or did something wrong to deserve suffering (Hmmm sounds like Job's friends). I am tired Lord, I am not going to kill myself but I am not going to be upset when you decide to call me home. (My rant for today)
