I love that song/prayer! We sing that at church sometimes.

Brenda - how are you doing? We miss hearing from you.

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

I will come to you in the silence
I ill lift you from all your fear
You will hear my voice

I claim you as my choice
be still and I know I am here
Do not be afraid I am with you
I have called you each by name
Come and follow me I will bring you home
I love you and you are mine.

our friend Brenda,
Pray hard dearest..

Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world

Brenda, I am so glad that you have some good days in the midst of the bad ones.
You have an awful lot on your plate right now. Hopefully, things will settle a bit now that the wedding has come and gone. As DOREMI says, all that's to come will be little bundles of joy!

All the best with your papers and things you need to do. I know that will go a long way to helping you improve, when you have that all under your belt.

Still praying ...

your life is precious and when I think of how much work you have done to maintain stability it is truly a life worth living! How wonderful for your son and now daughter in-law to look in their future and be able to share their own gifts of life with you emoticon This journey, as painful as it is , is being shared by the one who died for us..on that cross.
Every day at 3:00 I pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet...you are added to the intentions dear Brenda...join me? here is a link to this beautiful prayer using our rosary.

Trying so hard to stop this feeling. It has gotten better, then it comes back. I know all of your prayers for me are helping. Today I am going to try to clean my kitchen and living room. Have been drinking my coffee and reading Spark articles all morning.

But then I have a research paper to finish and an online course to complete. Two of my professors were willing to give me incompletes because I was in the E.R. and down in bed for 9 days with one of my really bad headaches.

One of my sons got married this past week and that was stressful, I just have way too much on my plate for who I am now after brain surgery. But I have to get things done in order to cope with life and get out of college so I can make a living.

He would love to take over your mind, body, and soul.
If you do not feel able to tell him where to go, we all here will tell him for you, through your guardian angel. Our guardian angels are capable and willing to keep you away from satan.

May God keep you and protect you always.
Angels of God, our guardian dears, to whom God's love entrust us here.
Ever this day be at our sides, to light and guard, to rule and guide.

I beg BRENDABRAIN's guardian angel to guide and protect her now and always. Keep the devil and all his minions at bay for her, keep her always on God's path for her, and help her to receive the love, the support, and the help she needs to carry on, and to heal.

Amen.

I just read the comments about satan and I have been thinking lately that he is taking over my mind, body. Or am I letting him? Don't know which but he is winning. Last couple of days have been horrible. Feeling a little better today but partly because my pain from my scar incision on the top of my head is gone because of my medication. Am waiting on pins and needles to see a new pyshciatrist for another opinion.

Praying for you Brenda.
Have you seen a priest for confession and absolution - perhaps the devil is trying to get to you. Give him a good swift kick to the curb!
emoticon

I remember when my dh was hospitalized with gall bladder trouble and pancreatitis. He thought he was dying, when he was not that ill (very ill, but not dying). He was convinced he was not going to recover, and he was sort of staying the same physically. The Holy Spirit put it to me to call in the priest. After receiving the sacrament of the sick, his spirit improved wonderfully, and he began to get better physically almost immediately! I am convinced the devil was eating away at him spiritually.

I'm so pleased that you feel in your heart all the love of those here who care about you and are praying for you, and can feel God's grace and healing working within you as well.

All praise be to God!

Thank you again. I have actually done two loads of laundry and for the past 2 to 4 weeks?? I have done nothing but sit on my couch, on the computer and cry. I have only left my house if I absolutely had no choice.

Pain is so diminished, feels like it is almost gone, should say heaviness in my chest and heart. Nothing medical, just emotional. emoticon

Hello my new awesome friends,
I just want to report that today that horrible feeling in my chest is even better than yesterday. So I just want to ask you to please keep praying for me. Instead of feeling like I have been, weighed down, unable to move, even to clean my house.....my body feels God lifting that heaviness away and it is thanks to your prayers.
Thank you so much.
Peace and joy be with all of you today!

Brenda

Wow,

I am overwhelmed with gratitude for so many people who care and are praying for me. I do see a counselor regularly, in fact just returned from an appointment and she is a good God loving person. I have had the same dr for many years so I decided to get another point of view from a new psychiatrist. I see her on July 7th. I don't know if I feel better from seeing my counselor, but I think it is all of your prayers because the "heaviness' that is a pain is diminishing from my chest. I can work with my drs., but the physical pain that I have been feeling for the last month has been overwhelming. So heavy it has literally held me down so that all I have been doing is sitting on the couch, no housework, no school work, just the absolute bare minimum of what I have had to do.

Please keep me in your prayers, I know that is what is making that feeling in my chest do away today.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

God Bless you all!!!


Brenda

Prayer is always important; but depression is a chemically induced health condition that can be helped with proper medication. Please see your doctor and be honest about what you are going thru. I had a problem with this after my mom died and denied anything was wrong until I was at the point of desperation. Luckily, My doc is very insistent and persuasive, and convinced me to try an antidepressant for 30 days to see if it would help me. it DID tremendously. I stayed on the medicine for approx 10 months and then weaned off slowly also under the Dr's care. meanwhile, praying, attending daily Mass and receiving the sacraments. Don't underestimate a doctor's care in case of depression, please. I will pray for you, too.

Dear Brenda,

You are not as alone as you may feel, and please don't underestimate the help available to you!

As already encouraged by others, please seek professional assistence... your doctor, your priest, and if you are actively thinking about suicide a trip to the ER might be in order... to get the help you need. Depression is a problem with brain chemistry (and stress, crisis, hormones can all trigger changes in our brain chemistry), and medication makes all of the difference in the world. On-going regular counselling, in conjunction with medication, is an amazing support... I likely would not be here to type this if not for that sort of support. I'm sure you don't want to burden your sons with the loss of their mother.

I also noticed that you are not yet blogging... please consider it... you'd be amazed at how much it can help to get your thoughts out, and have people respond. The exercise of airing your thoughts can inspire miracles in your life!

I will also pray... and I will ask the intercession of St. Dymphna... I offer for you Saint Dymphna Prayer (Patron of those afficted with Depression):

"Lord, our God, you graciously chose St. Dymphna as patroness of those afflicted with depression and other brain chemistry disorders. She is thus an inspiration and a symbol of charity to the thousands who ask her intercession.

Please grant, Lord, through the prayers of this pure youthful martyr, relief and consolation to all suffering such trials, and especially those for whom we pray.

I ask especially for your intercession for Brenda in all of her trials. Please, Father, bless Brenda and those she loves, in every way that she requires. Hold her gently in the palm of your hand in a very personal way, that she may rest in the fullness of your love, your grace, your strength, your wisdom, your rescue, your redemption, your healing, your inspiration, your restoration and your mercy as she requires it!

I beg you, Lord, to hear the prayers of St. Dymphna on our behalf. Grant all those for whom we pray patience in their sufferings and resignation to your divine will. Please fill them with hope, and grant them the relief and healing they so much desire.

We ask this through Christ our Lord who suffered agony in the garden. Amen."

Pray to lesson your stress. Our Lord will help you through these dark clouds if you ask him and above all , do not give up.
Write down your feelings, it will ease your pain, and just take one minute at a time if necessary.
You are not yourself when depression overcomes you, see a doctor or a priest, and remember things will be better in time.
You have children who need your love and who no doubt love mom!
We will pray that each day will get a little bit better.

Living a life a little less ordinary!

Brenda, is your Dr. aware of how you are feeling? I will certainly pray for you, but you also need to do something to take care of yourself. If you are actually considering suicide, you need to get to the ER, or call 911, or at least call your local crisis line. You need help!
Please keep us posted about how you are doing.

I will pray that as I found that depression is something I can cure.
I used group and individual therapy.
I used the medications I was perscribed.
I used friends and the way to find friends is to be a friend.
Please choose grace.

Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things:... Psalm 98

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though... we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day my day....So fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal
2 COR 16-18

Doing nothing is the most perfect form of action, when I do nothing there is nothing left undone and there is nothing left to do.... The Way by Lao Tse

Please pray for my depression to stop so I stop considering suicide. I know the ramifications but just can't seem to take much more of this. Thank you.
