On the verge...

I am on the verge (have been for a month) on a nervous breakdown. I can't handle anything. I have daily bouts of crying, can't make decisions, snap at others easily, & feel very anxious. I see a counselor with my daughter for a major situation in her life, I am a Christian & attend Church faithfully, I read the Bible, listen to sermons on the radio, and meet with my Pastor to discuss situations at home. With all of this, why am I not still able to handle things? I have noticed I feel sad and down on myself a lot. As you can tell, I probably need more help but don't know where to get it. I called my Doctor and the nurse said I should be on meds. I felt her to be insenstive and never made an appointment. I don't want meds to be the answer to my problems. Any thoughts? Thank you.

meds may not be the answer to your problem, but they may help you.

Meds balance the seratonin level in your brain, to bring thoughts back to normal, (well it does for me)....my doc told me the same thing, and combining Coda weekly live meetings, and posting here and seeing a therapist and taking meds...has all helped me get some balance back into my life.

Why not try to balance things in your life out and see if you can get to the root of your problem.

Mathew -

I presume you are a female from previous thread. Rest assured even Christians have multitudes of so many mental and emotional problems. We live in an imprefect sinful world. Sadly, Others: (parents, siblings, spouses, strangers etc) have screwed up our life. We have to Undo the past with all its hurts and wounds. Many of us here are in the same boat as you. So you're not alone in your agonies!

I agree with what Camer suggested to you.

Keep persevering Mathew and remember every day you are getting better.

Joyce Meyer has lots and lots of materials about emotional healing. Listen to her programs and purchase her resources.

~Blessings & hugs, Ras~

Matt...
Your thoughts greatly affect the way you feel. And sometimes, I know for me, just reading the Word without putting it into practice does not bring much power into my life. So I ask God through the power of the Holy Spirit to work it out for me, in me. Having knowledge isn't enough, beleiving and acting on it is. It sounds as if you are being robbed of any joy that comes your way, don't allow that. You may not see God in all of this, but he is there, and reflect back on your life when he was there and you knew he had been there, because beleive me, you sure know when he's been there!

Hold onto hope and faith, remember Romans 8:28 and also, ask God, "What's good about this?" If you are a Christian as you say you are, remember that all things work together for good. Ask God to show you what to do, BEFORE you do anything...not afterward, and pray about everything. He says we can have peace and joy in the midst of our circumstances, and he does not lie to us. Confusion does not come from God.

Will keep you in prayer, as I also read the trial you are facing on the other thread in the Support threads.

Try to take all of it and sew it, don't get swallowed up by it. Sew it and allow God to make a harvest of it for you. I just think he is saying...Lean on me, Lean on me, Lean on me....

I also recommend JoyceMeyer.org; TV/RadioListings; TV; and her sermon "Think About What you are Thinking About".

take care,
omw

Thank you for your support and great suggestions. I feel I have to defend myself here though (just like in other situations in my life). I really am a good person and I do pray a lot every day. I prayed these words yesterday, "help me, help me." I know God will help me. I also believe his time is not my time and it may take time to get through a lot of the things I am going through. I am not only going through things with my husband, but with my mother who is very controlling and had a stroke last year. Also, my daughter of 12 who never saw her father decides to show up and come off smelling like a rose and wants to enrich her life. He has caused her an incredible amount of pain and still does. He doesn't care about her and has never accepted responsibility for abandoning her. I feel her pain everyday. I know God has forgiven me for the sin of having her out of wedlock, but this sin still haunts me through the works of the Devil. I pray to have strength. In the meantime, I am always looking over my shoulder waiting for her father to "act" and try to win custody.

Anyway, thank you for letting me ramble here. I appreciate you all. GB ~Wen
