  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.

    I'm in too much distress to word this properly. But I've been through hell, I have severe brain damage, and I seem to only go down into the deeper circles as I try to climb out. I'm suicidal, and I don't know how to keep going, or even how to get any sense of direction here. All is confusion and bombardment of evil.

    Please pray for me.

    Said a prayer for you.

    And like I said elsewhere, go get help. I was in a horrible state of pain and confusion many times. Sometimes I crawled to a doctor, sometimes my mother, sometimes anyone. Many roads ended up in a hospital, but that's what I needed then. I wouldn't be here without help. Money, schedules and all those things, they don't matter. Life matters. So please, get help, get yourself somewhere safe, and commit to treatment and build a network around you.

    Thank you. I wish I had the words for a proper response, but I"m too much of a mess.

    God has been helping me. I feel a little better now, but I know I've got a long way to go. He's reminding me of who I am and why I deserve to live, though, prying away a lot of really toxic, terrifying things I've been poisoned with.

    Not explaining it well...but please continue to pray for me. I've got a long way to go.

    I will.

    And you, get yourself treated. Get an ongoing relationship with people who can treat you. It's a safety net. Very important when suicide is on your mind. No matter how much of a threshold it seems to get that treatment, get it anyway. If you run into obstacles, for example money, I can help you with some.

    You also deserve to live, always. It's not something that can be deserved. It's not something with qualifying tests. Don't believe the lies in your head. You are loved, and you have plenty of love to give.

    The evil can only get you when you believe in their lies, when you hold onto the truth of God then the lies of the wicked go down in flames.

    Keep reminding yourself that you are God's child, worthy of honour love and kindness. This is how God treats us with dignity love and kindness surrounding us as we enter His Rest.

    That God's peace surrounds you

    Hi I am new to this board. I have been depressed since 19 and I am 26 years old. Since August of last year I have been trying to find a church that teaches straight from the Word of God and a deliverance ministry and it has been hard. Since then I have been worrying about my salvation. I went to a prosperity church for 12 years and got baptised in 2011. I still struggle with sin in my life. But I try and read my bible and devotionals. It has been really hard since I have no help or support. Some days I don't knows how I am going to get help or to a safe place. I am distrustful of people since I have been depressed and hurt before. I just wish I can find the help I have been looking for. I have talked to a man and he is going to give me deliverance. I just someone understood. In Jesus Name Amen

    God's grace is greater than our doubts. We always "stray" to the path where we try to do everything to get salvation, not realizing that Christ already did it for us.

    Said a prayer for you, hoping for comfort, guidance and love to come your way.

    I am in need of prayer help. I have been depressed since I can remember. I have recently begun the healing process, accepting there are problems, forgiving what happened to me. Some people did things to me in my life that have me throw up from the despair. I would like to ask that people pray for these feelings and memories may finally go away, so that I can be happy, and finally be at peace with who I am.

    I would also like to ask that my mother may finally find peace in her life. That she can be shown the light again, that she can get over what and who has harmed her so much in her life. She is not doing to well, I would like to also ask, if it's not too much trouble, that people pray for her health to improve as well.

    Of course, brother. Said a prayer for you. Hoping for comfort, guidance and love to come both of your way.

    One day at a time. Do not despair if the healing process has a "hiccups" every now and then. I thought myself that I would never get any better at all, but finally I did. God bless both of you.

    You got it, said a prayer for you. Please let love in. It can be about surrendering to grace and love too, not just about reaching for it. In fact, it seems to be about surrendering to it most of the time, and getting rid of our barricades and needs to "worship" our sins or failures more than God.

    I hope you get help and relief.

    Please pray for my mental health. I have been the ICU twice for ODing. Once I don't remember the date and the second one was from the 22nd and 23rd. The devil is just kicking my butt. :( Telling me that I'm worthless and no one really loves me. :cry:

    Will pray. Don't do anything dumb. It's okay to not react to those feelings in the worst way, preferable even. It will become easier.
