    I said this in another thread (sorry ), but I really envy those who have a strong faith in a religion, a God, something and/or someone. A few people that I know have gone through so much, but they still keep their faith strong in the belief that one day, their faith will reward them. I really do admire that and I believe that if it makes them happy, then I can't see anything wrong with it

    Really encouraging to see this post. It's not easy to be so ill and to be a person of faith, especially if those around you don't understand or ridicule you. Doctors also tend not to take faith seriously either :nope: Repped you and hope you are doing OK

    I don't understand why people would ridicule people based on their faith. Whether people are Christian, a Muslim, a Sikh etc. or an atheist, does it really matter what/whom they believe in as long as it's making them happy? (not aimed at you ). I'm really proud of my friend for sticking with something (I believe Christianity in general) she believed in after everything that she has been through. She never really mentioned this when we were close n'all or in general until maybe about 3 months ago or so. Through all the pain that she's gone through, she found something to make her happier and that's her love and belief in Jesus Christ and God. She has her slip ups like everyone else, but it's so good that it appears she's got something to comfort her.

    It's a shame that the doctors don't take your faith seriously, but ultimately it's your faith that makes you the lovely and adorable person than you are today and so as hard as it seems, try and brush it off You got something to comfort you at times where you may feel the need to have something to comfort you and that's something the nay-sayers will never understand...but that's their problem and not yours N'aww you didn't have too :hugs: I'll rep you back after this and it's not necessarily because you repped me but more for...well nothing really, you don't always need a reason to be nice to someone

    Me? I'm doing fine I guess. I've been thinking about my life a lot and people in general recently to be honest and it's actually for the good reasons. I feel within myself that I could be a little more kinder and just try and get out of my comfort zone a little more...we'll see Sorry for the long ass post by the way

    No need to apologise about your post - write away! Getting out of one's comfort zone is scary stuff but good on you for trying. I always stay firmly put in mine

    Ah I didn't mean to **** off all doctors - I was lucky that my psychiatrist respected my faith and would let me talk about how it interacts with my health, even if he didn't believe himself or believe what I was saying was true :yes:

I think your faith in...God...I assume, either way I think that your faith is something that means a lot to you and something I believe will reward you one day in the future :yep: It's something you deserve ya know, something amazing that'll make you happy...it's something we all deserve in this thread

    We can't always feel strong, especially when ill. The fact that you're even contemplating moving out of your comfort zone is admirable, to me at least :yep:

    Yes we all certainly deserve to feel very happy indeed, and that happiness can be found in many places, both sacred and secular!

    I know, but I feel like i'm getting stronger...kinda. Sometimes I don't do it for myself either! I did so many things last year that I didn't want too do because I didn't want to let anybody down. I practically sacrificed my mental instability (can;t think of another word/phrase to describe it) in order to keep people happy. I regret some of it, but I also feel happy knowing at I can actually be selfless at times

    I agree with that. One day i'll reach the happiness that will make each day exciting and new rather than bleak and dull, one day :moon:

    Ahh okay! I admire you keeping the faith when you're not 100% cause one day I fully believe you'll be rewarded for it

    You must try and be careful with that! I know that being selfless is a great feeling and is something to strive towards but you wanna be careful to look after yourself. You shouldn't have to risk your wellbeing in order to please people :nah: I learnt that the very hard way :sadnod:

    Yeah and i've said no a couple of times since then, but you know how it is when you feel pressured to do something. I finally had the courage to speak to a higher up about it and they were understanding and have said they'd guide me through if necessary I'm sorry to hear that :hugs:

    Be my guest!! If i'm still posting by then then you guys would bet he first to know. Without you and the rest of the threads help, I wouldn't have made the progress that i've seen already One day people and myself will be uber proud of me..hopefully

    Ahh but getting through the coldness and lack of rewards could very well provide perhaps your best reward You never know! I believe you'll get that reward, whatever it may be some day :hugs:

    Does anyone have any tips on how to phrase things when you first go to the Dr to ask for help?

    I want to try a combination of meds and some kind of therapy for my depression and anxiety but can I just straight out ask for this?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    There's a really useful website linked to in the OP of this thread - it helps you think through what you want to say, make a checklist of symptoms etc.

    It's perfectly fine to have definite aims in mind, just remember that therapy is likely to be a long wait.

    Good luck!
