Passing Thoughts Of A Mad Priest

It's very difficult to suppress your anger when people keep going on about the thing that's making you angry. All this stuff about the mentally ill in the media at the moment is not doing my mental health any good whatsoever. Knowing that it will not make a scrap of difference to my situation does not help. In fact, it makes me so envious of those who will be helped that I cannot cope with it.

  1. Jonathan, I have PTSD. I am an abuse survivor.
    1. I work out at my local YMCA. This helps my depression, at the very least.
    2. I have routines and daily tasks in addition to my appointments. This helps improve my anxiety.
    3. I sit daily – twice daily. This is my meditation time. My time alone with God, Jesus, The Holy Spirit . Three in one – it’s all the same. Once in the morning. Once in the evening. Pick a time. Pick a space. Just do the work.
    4. I take N.O. medication. This (above-) IS my medication.
    5. Repeat after me. Nothing else matters. Work on your relationship with the Divine. Nothing else matters. Just do the work. Just L.O.V.E.
    6. You are and have been in my prayers.
    7. I am witness that this works. Repeat after me.

    Blessings, alice d in Port Orchard, Washington State, U.S.A. (Yes, I know very well who (our) president is (no, that failure to capitalize the “P” was n.o.t. a typo). I didn’t vote for this @$^%^$W……..

    I am a universal Christian citizen.
    Like some African’s say, “God is BIG. God is VERY BIG.”

    Yep. Indeed.
    Now go celebrate the Holy Resurrection!

    You are not alone.

  2. Thanks, Alice. I too managed to control my anxiety through sticking to routines although it was a heck of a painful struggle to begin with. Unfortunately I have never managed to come to terms with what I have lost and, if I am to be honest, I don’t think I really want to. To accept that I will never get my job back and to “move on” seems like a betrayal to me. I would be letting those who hurt me off the hook. Thank you for your prayers. They are much appreciated.
