    I hesitated to post this 1) because I posted a request for prayer a few months back, and 2) because I just haven't felt like going to the trouble. My depression, anxiety, guilt, shame, lamenting the past, dreading the future, not eating much, irritability, not sleeping, stomach issues, inability to enjoy anything at all and wishing it would all just end all point to, based on what I researched, a nervous breakdown. I am asking for prayers, specifically that I can forget about the bad past, and move on. Because of a recent trigger/reminder, I am unable to move on, and am crippled with anxiety. I plead for your prayers. Also, due to the nature of my state of mind ( zero motivation), I ask once again to pray...but not bother with comments. I just dont have the energy to reply. I pray for all here, but know you are powrrful prayers. Thank you

    Move on my friend. Don’t get stuck in the past.

    God commands His people in the Scriptures, “God commands His people in the Scriptures, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.” (Isaiah 43:18 NIV) Why is the Lord against us dwelling on the past? Because doing so can cause us to get stuck where we are. When our focus is on the past, it's too easy for us to feel sorry for ourselves.

    Prayed. God is good. Life is hard but good. Like a marathon run. The best I ever achieved in real life was a half marathon though.

    Mark, I will keep you in my prayers throughout this week and Advent!

    Keep picking up that Cross and follow Jesus as He has asked. Do not get stuck on the falling, but on getting up after each fall. It would be nice to feel we have arrived; rather, Jesus wants us to experience the constancy of His Mercy after each fall. In this human life, His Mercy and Love are intertwined! And the Body of Christ is experienced wherever we have companions to help us on the way! Think the 5th Station: Simon helps Jesus to Carry His Cross!

    Sorry, I'm running at the mouth!:censored: Praying

    Perfect analogy Terry,”Think the 5th Station: Simon helps Jesus to Carry His Cross!”.

    Mark1 .. AARRGH..... Is all I can say....what pain...what unimaginable woe!!:(

    BUT....Can you pull together just enough energy feeble as it may be say to God."If this cross be your will then I accept it!?

    Having said that..... I'm not sure that...if I were under the same weight that you describe as you are bearing.....I would be able to say those words.... let alone mean them. But ... I know that it would be extremely beneficial to you and who knows who...or what else would benefit from your carrying of this cross!

    In the meantime...tonight....I will pray that Heaven will allow you some relief from this dark.....heavy cross .

    ...I knew I could count on you people. I met with a priest tonight, and it , also, did a great deal of good. Between your prayers and the priest, a burden was lifted. I'm grateful to each of you, and read every post.

    I just caught up to this post and my first thought was - go see a good priest and by that I don’t even necessarily mean confession. At one point I was far away from God and sort of got pushed into talking to a priest because the person thought I wanted to go to confession - I admitted to the priest that I didn’t want confession that in fact I had not reached the point of actually being sorry for my sins. The priest instead of turning me away spent time just talking with me about all my thoughts and feelings. While I walked away not forgiven - I believe it was the crack in the door that allowed the Holy Spirit to move more forcefully in my soul.

    Glad to know the talk with the priest helped you as well. Remember - priests - they aren’t just for confession anymore :);)
