    I wanted to post this here because I realize that if I post it in on the "Christian Advice" forum I'll probably get advice from everyone but a Catholic. Most of that advice would be along the lines 'You don't need to confess your sins to a man. Confess them directly to Jesus". I feel no desire explain or debate confession therefore here I am.

    First, let me preface this by saying I'm schizo-affective. I don't know if any of you know anything about this disease but suffice it to say it is basically like a combination schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Anyways, one of the problems I have is that when I become maniac I get hyper sexual but since I'm bedbound I release that by looking at porn. More to the point is that I had recently gone to confession and that was one of the sins I sins I confessed. The problem? I had a manic episode and looked at porn. The worst part is I took is I took communion without going to confession. I'm at a loss. I don't know what to do. For me to go to confession Father has to come to my apartment and with this being Lent I know he is extremely busy. I've prayed on this and the only thing I know to do is stop receiving communion until after I am able to go to confession. I'm just afraid that since I've committed a mortal sin if I passed before I go to confession I can't go to heaven. I'm, also, afraid I've committed a mortal sin by taking communion without going to confession. Very confused.

    One other thing is I put software on my computer to help me with porn for times when I'm manic. It'll block the sites. I actually have to give the software permission to show the sites. I think that will help a hundred percent.

    first off

    great job on getting filter software
    keep going to confession

    but God knows you are sick, mental problems ARE real sicknesses
    because of this, your moral actions done in manic states might not carry the weight of full culpability
    so it might not be a mortal sin for you

    Firstly you repent this sin to Jesus one on ONE in genuine remorse from your heart in front of The Cross.

    Order Jesus on The Cross if you dont have it with you.

    Satan and evil spirits detest Jesus on The Cross and you will be more armoured in Holiness and Protection with Jesus on His Cross and Jesus and Mother Mary's Holy Images around you. Order Jesus Divine Mercy Holy Image for your home and car for greater protection. Remove the devices that are making you sin in this way. Get rid of the mobile or television or computer part that is causing through satan and his evil spirits tempting you. Keep up repentance to Jesus after making The Sign of The Cross. Satan will try and block you from doing this so ignore these blocks completely continuing to repent from your heart.

    pray The Holy Rosary to Jesus The Holy Spirit and to our Blessed Virgin Mother Mary to break the filthy addiction. All addictions are broken by Jesus and Mother Mary for those whom pray The Most Holy Rosary. Trust in Jesus completely with this. All negatives were removed from my life after one week of praying The Most Holy Rosary by Mother Mary Whom led my heart back to Jesus in 2011 while dying. One week! Then Jesus and Mother Mary changed my life, healed me while dying, and called upon me to do our Lord's Holy Works of His with all of the Glory being Yours my Dear Lord Jesus.

    Next I was led to pray Jesus/God's Holy Divine Mercy Chaplet and Novena and then our Lord Jesus' Holy Wound Chaplet. Consecration of my Heart and Soul to Jesus' Sacred Heart and Consecration of my heart and soul to our Blessed Virgin Mother Mary's Holy Immaculate Heart daily or weekly. Fast if healthy blocking satan and his temptations. Call upon Saint Joseph to assist you prior to prayer and to pray for you for the cessation of all a filthy thoughts and acts. Ask Holy Michael Archangel to block satan and the evil spirits whom cause these things. Wear Mother Mary's Holy Miraculous Medal and Jesus on The Cross if you can visit a Catholic Bookshop or order online. Order a Holy Scapula and wear i

    Focus on Jesus' Sorrowful Mysteries first in Illustration with Jesus Cross nearby. Ask our Blessed Virgin Mother Mary to break all addictions for Good. Trust in Jesus and our Blessed Mother.
