Glenn Beck to Take Time Off for Unspecified Medical Tests

Glenn Beck told his radio audience on Friday morning that he will take off several days next week to undergo medical tests at a hospital “out west,” saying he is going through a “transformation.”

He said “small fiber” issues may be involved but that testing will provide a clearer understanding. “We don’t even know what all of the symptoms are at this point,” he disclosed.

Speaking slowly and carefully choosing his words, Beck went on to say somewhat cryptically that he believes “physical, mental, and spiritual are all tied. You can’t injure the soul of someone and not have physical wounds appear eventually.

“I would ask for your prayers,” not for healing but for “clarity, for a desire to continue to stand. I would just like to want to.

“Things are changing. And there is no bad news here because what I’m feeling in myself and what is happening to my physical body to some extent and what is happening to me mentally is not a depression, it is a transformation, it is atranscendence, it is a reaching out of the slime and pulling yourself out.”

Beck, who said he would be off Monday and Tuesday, told listeners it is important for him to share this with his audience “so that you will understand my mind-set.”

He also said listeners might have noticed a change in how he sounds on the radio because he’s been having difficulties with his vocal cords, and doctors will check out this problem.
