  1. Apparently you didn't read the Religion Forum Rules. Here is a quote: Please remember to keep your posts focused on personal support only; This Forum is not meant to Proselytize or to be anyone's Pulpit A moderator has already read and allowed this topic, so I guess the rules don't apply on this thread for some reason. With that in mind, I'll go ahead and ask my questions. You said: I'm one of those who has prayed and prayed, gone to church, read my Bible, etc. I've called out to God and humbly asked Him for some sort of sense that He is there, that He is listening...but I feel nothing. I pray, and--as much as I would like to believe that He is there and listening--I feel like I am talking to myself. My sense is that--if He was ever there with me--He isn't with me now. I know you say that we must read our Bibles, but the Bible says things that are not believable to me. The old testament says that some people lived for hundreds of years in those days. (Even accounting for a calendar difference, the math still doesn't work.) I find that unbelievable, no matter how hard I try to believe it. (And that's only one of the things I find unbelievable; there are many others.) I would love to have a faith that could sustain me and help me, but I am unable to believe some of the stuff I read in the Bible. I guess it makes sense that some of the stuff in the Bible would seem incorrect because people wrote the Bible and decided which books made the final cut and which ones didn't...but--in light of that--how can I believe that the Bible is the word of God? How do I put the critical thinking part of my brain to bed in order to believe things in the Bible that aren't believable? Also, why would God expect me not to use the critical thinking part of my brain when He is the one who gave it to me? How can I have the Christian faith you speak of when my God-given brain is telling me that something isn't right?
  2. It's okay...I'm just giving you a hard time.
  3. Avon has one called "Blushing Kiss" that smells heavenly. You can buy it on their website, or through an Avon rep. I also like their Anew Age-Transforming Foundation, because it's moisturizing, and it doesn't seem to accentuate the dry skin on my face as much as other foundations. It's a liquid, and the coverage isn't as good as my cream foundations, but my skin looks better overall with something that minimizes the dryness.
  4. I just showered about an hour ago. I would highly recommend it. I don't smell like dirty squirrel anymore. You can always make a bath with some Mr. Bubble. He makes bath time fun.
  5. This...hits a little too close to home, Hocico.
  6. Haven't tried that kind. I like the Açai and Blueberry ones though.
  7. Yeah, weird. Not as bad as that guy who cut off some other guy's head on a Greyhound bus in Canada though. Yikes. That's a story you won't be telling your grand kids. Don't Google it if you plan on eating anytime soon.
  8. I thought you already were. You look like one in your picture. Wasn't there a song that was like, "I wanna be a cowboy...And you can be my cow-squirrel"...? I think it was an 80's song...
  9. Well, come summer I may be by to haunt you, evalynn. Bwahahahaha!!!! It shouldn't be too terrifying, as long as I remember to wear a bra.
  10. It's 29 degrees Fahrenheit here, so I think I'll pass for now.
  11. Well, you never know. Steve on the "Fetzima Posts" thread said he'd even tried ECT, TMS, tricyclics, MAOI's, etc. and nothing worked but Fetzima. Everybody is different, but maybe it could help you too. It would be worth a try, don't you think?
  12. Hi, Sheepy!!

    I hope you are doing well, and that you stop in to see us again soon!!  :flowers:

  13. I try to tan, but my fur is too dense for the sun to get through.
  14. I think I read on another thread that your job sucks. I hope you will find something else, and it will help you feel better about things in general, scienceguy.
  15. Well, that Fetzima is still a possibility, right? Maybe that could help.
  16. You guys are makin' me cry. Thank you, SS.
  17. Thanks, hocico. You make my day better too. I'm glad to know you!!
  18. Really?? I feel like maybe my words sound hollow or aren't very helpful, but I'd rather put them out there than have people feel ignored. I thought about getting my masters in counseling, but my mental illness and my tendency to empathize too much destroyed that. Actually, every dream I've had is either destroyed or teetering on the brink of destruction. I guess I need to have smaller dreams. Anyway...thank you, Natasha. You are so kind.
  19. I hope things get better for you soon, Rainrain. It can take time to heal, so be patient with yourself.
  20. I'm sorry, SS. I wish I could change that for you.
