  1. “Water is fluid, soft & yielding but water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield ... what is soft is strong.” Lao Tzu

  2. Hi Steve, I used to think like that a lot, especially when I had a lot of anxiety. It always felt like everything moved in on me and everything was 1000 times more complicated or worse than it really was. Therapy can help, maybe learning new ways to cope with your unrest (maybe even anxiety but a Dr. would have to diagnose that). If it's really bad anxiety, sometimes they prescribe anti anxiety medications to go along with your therapy. My anxiety got a lot better once I learned that I can handle the right here, right now and to focus on what I can do rather than what will I do or what I can't do, it's not always easy but it has worked the best for me. ~adorabelle
  3. I'm sorry about your mom. I don't know much but I hope they found it early and they can do a lot more today than they used to, never give up hope. :hugs:Do not forget to take good care of yourself while you support your mom. As bad as it may seem right now, you know what? Be glad he is gone now. If he is not there for you when you need him the most, then what good is he? You would be there for him, wouldn't you? I know it's hard, break ups are always messy. Some guys will use anything for an excuse in order to stay with you. Hang in there, things will get better. ~adorabelle
  4. FLDMBFAN, It's not easy when a couple is dealing with mental health but it is possible, if both are willing to accept each other the way they are and learn as much as we can about what is going on with each other. Maybe you can talk your wife into coming to your Doc with you, that way she can hear it directly from your Doc. Maybe she isn't sure how to handle it, try talking to her to see why she won't come around. I'm glad to hear you are ready to fight depression, remember to take it one step at a time. DF is here to support. Hope to see you around, ~adorabelle
  5. persistenceofloss, sounds like you are struggling with a lot right now. I know it can seem like it will never change but it can and it will. Accept and love yourself, it sounds like you are a really nice guy and you are being way to hard on yourself. People are very accepting once they know what is going on, don't be afraid to educate. Most Importantly, you are not a failure, it is your depression speaking. Hope to see you around our community, ~adorabelle
  6. Great to see you back posting

  7. Do not be scared with the year 2012, remember all the rubbish they talked about the year 2000? It's almost the same deal. It's from the Mayan Calendar and it is a prophecy for an apocalypse but since quiet a few libraries with a lot of Mayan information have been burned down you can't really go by some of the information that is left. The bible has been put together to the point where you can flip flop between OT and NT and it all makes sense, there is a lot of "it is written" phrases in the NT that point to the OT. Were other books written back then, I am sure. Paper was a scarce resource back then, as well as ink so to put something false out there (or something true) must have really meant a lot to whoever wrote it. But that is a touchy subject to a lot of scholars and still causes a lot of debate, especially the OT. I choose to stick with the bible and not worry to much about it being 'all there' for my own sanity with more than 33,000+ different denominations and believes I believe what Revelations 22:18-19 says. You know a book I really like? I Don't have Enough Faith to be an Atheist by Norman L. Geisler The book isn't perfect but it has a TON of valid points, I'm not trying to start an argument with anyone by sharing my book tip. I know what you mean by questioning it all though, but then I asked myself what do I have to lose by choosing to live this way and give it my all?
  8. you are not a joke to god! he loves you no matter what! as was said before, everyone's faith is different but here is my little side of it: sometimes we do not understand the tasks or situations god puts us through but it usually shows its meaning when we pray and are patient. we make plans, and god laughs because he already has a plan for us (see it with a little humor) i know it's not easy when you aren't feeling well and everything seems to get worse day by day. keep praying, show him you haven't given up on him and he will not give up on you! talk about patience, he has more patience than i ever will, it took me 10 years to figure out why what happened to me, happened to me. 10! and now it all makes sense, like a very revitalizing slap in the face. but i do not regret the terrible times i have been through, i have met a lot of kind people despite my anxiety and ups and downs and i have learned a lot, not just in real life support but here at df, too. if i would've realized sooner what was happening i would have not been ready to wrap my tiny brain around it anyway, i hope that is not to confusing, i'm not trying to go into to much detail. hang in there! you don't need a huge amount of faith. don't be too hard on yourself, remember: (i hope these will help comfort you, i enjoy them a lot when i have a bad day) He said to them, "Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you." Matt 17:20 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Prov 3:5-6 eccl 3:1 1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; 3 A time to ****, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
