  1. Happy Birthday! Hope you are doing well :)

  2. I hope you had a fantastic day :)

  3. Thank you anyway Makes sense, not corny; it's a great thought! Thanks:)
  4. Indeed, I do that sometimes... ....and then you worry that you have annoyed/upset that person by thinking that you've annoyed/upset them and then constantly asking if you have annoyed/upset them....and round and round it goes....Ugh. Been there, done that. Well, being there and doing that, but it's better than it used to be....most of the time:/
  5. Reminders from God: "I am with you" declares the Lord...Haggai 1:13 "The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love"...Psalm 103:8 "Many waters cannot quench love, rivers cannot wash it away"...Song of Songs 8:7 Everyone has their own interpretations of God's Word. I know I how interpret these verses and it is of great comfort to me. I hope you are well, and that these verses will be comforting to you as well.
  6. Well said, Kalla:) "Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see" Hebrews 11:1
  7. Also a born-again Christian of nearly 3 years. I attend a nazarene church; it is Bible-based and taught on the foundational beliefs of the Wesleyan tradition.
  8. I am very blessed to have 2 pastors from my church personally involved as members of my support team. One is the senior pastor, and the other is the family/high school/Celebrate Recovery (a christian, Bible-based 12-step program) pastor, with whom I am pretty good friends. They have even spoken recently with my therapist to be sure that they are all on the same page re: my treatment & continuity of care. My therapist does not promote herself as strictly a Christian counselor, but she is a very strong Christian and that is very helpful to me. She was recommended to me the the CR pastor, and since I have kept him in the loop re: my treatment with her and the fact that she is the best counselor I have ever worked with (and there has been lots), he has referred several people to her, as has the senior pastor. In fact, I have been asked for her phone # so many times, by pastors, staff and church family alike, that I finally asked her for a stack of her business cards to hand out. If you can find someone within the church to connect with, I would say go for it. Also, you may be interested in attending a Celebrate Recovery program; if your home church does not offer it, check with others in your area - there is bound to be one not too far from you. Best of Luck and God Bless
  9. Welcome to the DF forums!

    :)

  10. Mine is how I want to live my life, not focused on my brokeness, but for Christ.
  11. Thank you so much for posting this. I am going to jot it down and stick it in my day planner where I can read it often. My issues with starving and bingeing and purging are way out of control and I can't even remember how to eat "normally" anymore.
  12. I just had the "I don't understand how my dx is bipolar" discussion (for the umpteenth time) with my therapist the other day. The manic behavior for the disorder can present itself in many different ways. For instance, my "mania" was when I would work 15-hour days for weeks on end, try to be involved in every possible group at church and do 87 other extracirricular activities at the same time. Oh yeah, and no one was allowed to help me with anything, 'cause I could do everything myself. But even though those episodes are very few and far between, I am able to see a real pattern with the major depressive episodes. Hence my reluctant acceptance of mood-stabilizing meds. However, it does help that this time around I have a physician, a therapist and a support team that I trust.
  13. These last 2 lines speak volumes to me. Thank you for making it all a little more clear:) You rock!
