Mental/Physical Health Update

Hey guys,

So it’s been a rough couple of months. I’ve been dealing with my depression/bipolar disorder AND fibromyalgia relapse all at once. It’s been…well, it’s been downright miserable.

I hate this feeling of hopelessness. I hate this feeling of sadness that just consumes me. I hate the pain, both physical and mental. I hate being told to “snap out of it, ” “just push through it,” and “it’s all in your head.” (which, well, yeah it IS in my head but it’s not me making it up or something….it’s a chemical imbalance in the brain.) Believe me, it doesn’t help. I mean, it might be good advice for some, but for most people suffering from depression and other mental health disorders, it just doesn’t help.

I hate that Satan has his grip on me and the more and more I try to shake him off, the tighter he holds on.

So with that said…please say a prayer for me. I’m just not in a good place right now.

  1. Leigh, I understand your struggles. I have PTSD and people expect me to snap out of it too. I have lots of inflammation, and just had a hysterectomy this spring. God is with you in this trial!

    Hold on to the hope that Christ has given you joy to the full!

    Abba Father, I ask that You comfort my sister Leigh as only You can. I thank You that You are with us and You care for us. Please keep her close to You and fill her with Your love. Remind her that this trial is not unto death, and that she will overcome this.

    Give her strength to endure this process until it’s end. In Jesus’ name AMEN.

    Blessings, Keierra
