Hi to everyone, I'm scarysanity. I'm new to DS and new to this group. I've been on vacation now for 6 days and I've been suffering depression and anxiety the entire time. I feel as if I'm being punished for something. What you may ask. I don't know. I've been in church my entire life up till about 3 years ago when a tragedy happened in my family and the pastor of the church we were attending told people in the public about it. It wasn't anything he should've shared with ANYONE because we discussed things with him in confidence. We were torn apart as a family and have yet to regain our family again. I know that God doesn't punish His children, but it sure feels as if he is. I'm made my mistakes, and I've made my ammends for them. Asked forgiveness from the people that I hurt. I'm not perfect. I'm only human. The fact is that I've fallen away from Christ. I've tried praying. I've tried reading my Bible. I'm so lost right now that I can't bring myself to do either one. The suffering continues and is getting worse! I get to go home today, hopefully, and I know I'll feel a bit better when I get there, but I also know that the depression, anxiety, and pain will continue even when I get there. If anyone has any advice that may help me thru this, it would be greatly appreciated!
Marlene is doing better. Appears she may not have the Virus after all. Praise to the Great Physician.
