  2. The General Mental Health Forum is now a Read Only Forum. As we had two large areas making it difficult for many to find, we decided to combine the Mental Health & the Recovery sections of the forum into Mental Health & Recovery as a whole. Physical Health still remains as it's own area within the entire Recovery area.

    If you are having struggles, need support in a particular area that you aren't finding a specific recovery area forum, you may find the General Struggles forum a great place to post. Any any that is related to emotions, self-esteem, insomnia, anger, relationship dynamics due to mental health and recovery and other issues that don't fit better in another forum would be examples of topics that might go there.

    If you have spiritual issues related to a mental health and recovery issue, please use the Recovery Related Spiritual Advice forum. This forum is designed to be like Christian Advice, only for recovery type of issues. Recovery being like a family in many ways, allows us to support one another together. May you be blessed today and each day.

    Hello everyone and God bless. I just ask you to take a look at my thread and pray for me or offer me some support and encouragement. I REALLY am struggling. I am so scared. It almost feels like I am bleeding on the inside.

    So the thing is, I have this very strong fear of death and sickness. I am not scared of myself getting sick or dead, but my loved ones (or should I say one - my best friend and ministry partner). It is so intense and so powerful. I can't take it anymore. I am so scared that she will get cancer or some other terrible disease and then die. I am scared to the point that when something minor happens, like a pimple or a minor headache or stomachache I am all like, goodness, I'm so scared, what if you die. I know where this came from - my other best friend has/had cancer, my mom had it, and I am used to being scared that the people I hold close to my heart will die. Also, I can't help but think of all the innocent people, even God-loving Christians who die of these terrible sicknesses every day, and I find myself so intensely scared and just plan unable to trust God that all will be ok. I know the Bible tells me not to be scared but trust God and that His plans are good and so is His will but then again I can't help but doubt - there are so many Christians suffering and dying in agony. I just feel so scared and so insecure.

    Please, please take this seriously. Please help me. Someone, anyone. :bow::prayer::crosseo:

    I was scared of the same thing. If you are a christian and they are christians then we have eternal life. Yes we die from our physical bodies but our souls live on. We will be reunited with friends and loved ones in heaven to worship God. So think of it this way. Earth is phase one and heaven is phase two. So we are seperated a short time from loved ones here on earth, but have eternal life in heaven with God and our loved ones,...
