I gave you that information, not to whine about how they were reacting to me. I was giving it as information about what is happening.

Yet, what you said is a good reminder not to start feeling sorry for myself. There is a very easy tendency that we can all fall prey to; is to take our eyes off of Christ and think somehow we can get through this in our own strength.

That is not only arrogant , but the consequences lead to self-pity. So that is the way I took you, rather than get defensive I am going to take it as a good reminder. I will say however, as fellow believers, we really need each other.

"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us." (Romans 9:35-37 KJV)
