Thank you Luella-you seem like a very kind person!
I've been researching a lot too,and am finding lots of confusing, contridictory things out there as well. I've read that the "mark of the beast" will be here next year, early in the year 2008. I don't know if this means we will be required at that time to have it, or not be able to hold down our jobs, buy or sell. I've heard there will be the Rapture, and that gave me comfort, but then I've also heard that there will be no Rapture-that we will be there through the end of the world, suffering for Jesus. Dying with no food-no way to pay our house notes without that chip in us. I wonder if we can beg friends who have the chip to buy our food for us maybe? What about healthcare? We will probably have to have that chip to use our insurance cards, as it will be a part of the card anyway-the SmartCard, isn't it called?
No, I don't take anything for anxiety-every medicine I've tried for anxiety causes me severe depression. I occassionally take things like Valerian Root, Holy Basil, or Kava though, to help me sleep.
