I could no longer remain comfortable, complacent, or with a cushion...."When that intruder invaded my world, everything of comfort, complacency, and cushion was destroyed. I no longer felt that there was a place of peace for me to exists within myself or in my literal surroundings. I could not remain comfortable because of anxiety, fear, and the constant harassment that I dealt with in my mind. I knew that I had to get it together and be strong or at least appear that I was a faithful Christian woman who trust God, but I had loss that fortitude."
