The following is chronicle of the journey of one couple. Please check the dropdown menu above for more true stories and a few analogies that Dr. Rita uses.
My husband and I owned a family run gasoline station. We lived in the upstairs apartment over the store we all worked together. I would even watch my baby granddaughter while my daughter was “taking a break” by working with the customers. One day everything changed. I was upstairs playing with the baby when I felt a tremendous explosion, I ran downstairs worried about my daughter, if she was pumping gas and there had been an explosion. I suddenly remembered to get the baby, I looked down and there she was, I hadn’t realized I already had her in my arms. It turned out my daughter was fine, but a loaded fuel truck had hit the buildng as the driver had a heart attack.
I lost all memory of the morning but not the memory of the explosion. I was having a hard time dealing with the loss of both our business and home. Then we tried to get things rebuilt so we could go back to work. Things were frustrating and confusing, there were so many things to deal with while I was still trying to get that day out of my head. I’d wake up at night thinking my daughter had died in the fire and she was no longer with us, but she was ok. So many sleepless nights and I became depressed to the point that I couldn’t do things. It was getting so I couldn’t even think. All I did was cry. I tried to talk to people and help with our insurance claim but I would just cry. My husband and I were not getting along, we were fighting with each other all of the time.
I went to my doctor and he said we needed help. So he gave us a name and a phone number. Dr, Rita Huang. She saved my life. We had our first meeting in February, of course I cried all most the whole time. I felt like I was falling apart day by day. Before, I was very self-sufficient, a good worker and could take care of things in a heart beat –now I was nothing. But Dr. Rita said things to me that made sense and started me to thinking things will be OK; yes, I could see how things will work out. She gave me hope, something I had lost. We prayed and it gave me strength to go on.
I didn’t get better overnight. But knowing I could come and talk to her and she had the answers I needed. I had tried talking to family and friends but they could not help me, they mostly just told me how they would do things.
Dr. Rita told me God would take care of us. He had already taken care of us by steering the truck away from me and my granddaughter and daughter. God had done so many things for us and Dr. Rita helped remind me of this. She was my life line. I knew each week I could go talk to her and she comforted me. Then, she told me clearly what I needed to do. I talked about feelings I was having and she helped me work through them and explained why I was feeling the things I was feeling. The loss of our home and business was hard to leave in the past.
In around July my daughter was pregnant with twins. She had lots of problems with bleeding with babies and was ordered to stay off her feet and in bed most of the time. She only was to get up to do what was absolutely urgent.
She was not allowed to pick up her toddler daughter or laundry. So during the day I took care of her, and her husband took care of her and their daughter at night. Dr. Rita told me if we had the gas station I would not be able to take care of my daughter and granddaughter. God had a plan and we needed to focus on that. So I did and it helped me to pray to Him and pay attention to the important things, and not material things. I was so stuck on the material side of things. I’m still working on that but feel so much better about the important things in life.
In October my son-in-law broke both of his feet. So now I had a daughter finishing her high risk pregnancy, a toddler to take care of, and son-in-law that was bedridden. I was having a tough time dealing with this for I had to do all the running for their household and mine. I took my son-in-law to doctor appointments, surgeries, did all the cleaning and laundry, cooking and so on. The bad thing was, I was without money and they were also having a hard time financially. They had to pay their own health insurance out of their pocket and my son-in-law was on workman’s compensation.
I let Dr. Rita know about our problems and she contacted the church to get help for us. Once the church found out, things really started to happen: meals, baby things, people that came to clean, cook and help beyond what we could have asked or imagined. This truly turned our lives around. I was crying, but happy tears now. There even was a man that paid $100.00 a month for the health insurance for the kids. It was a tough time. But because of all the help they didn’t lose the house or their health insurance. After 6 months my son-in-law was back to work and the twin boys were born and they are healthy and happy. We have a new life now starting over with God in our hearts now. We have a house now and God has taken very good care of us.
I still need to keep seeing Dr. Rita for a while. I’m doing so much better. I don’t cry all the time like I did, even though there are many tears in writing this letter for you. There was so much pain in my life. I’m learning how to deal with things in my new life with God in it. I love it and I think we will just grow and grow the more we learn in church. My granddaughter is in Sunday School and she is learning about Jesus. She prays to Him. She know Jesus loves her and it will get her through life so much better. In closing, Dr. Rita has the experience to help those in emotional need in the community. She is a great person and has a wonderful way of treating her clients.Contact us today
