  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.

    Does anyone else struggle with anxiety specifically related to their weight? I'm extremely overweight and I know I've got to lose it (working with a dietician and such right now) and between anxiety of the practicalities of going out and knowing what people must be thinking of me my social anxiety has drastically worsened. I love church but it's so anxiety provoking it's almost not worth going.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Yes, I think that anxiety is the primary cause of obesity in most people who are obese. I know that it is the cause of my over eating problem.

    "Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." ~ Philippians 4:4-7

    Thank you for posting that verse! I love it but for some reason haven't thought of it in relation to this.

    That must be the reason for my obesity. I never would have thought of that, but it certainly makes sense. I have severe anxiety and also a real problem with obesity, not for the lack of trying.
