Where the Rubber Meets the Road

I've been off meds for a few months now.  The past few days have made me wonder if discontinuing them was such a good idea.  I want to tough this out.  I want to use the tools the Church has given to me work through this and to come around to the other side a stronger and more holy person.  I will not let this master me.

God help me!  Here is where the rubber meets the road.


  1. But if you actually need (some/all) the meds, it's not saying that the Church isn't sufficient or that you're not making use of the tools the Church has provided. That seems to be veering dangerously close to the mindset of "I'll trust God to heal me" w/out recognizing that He has provided means for that healing--whether a doctor or a therapist or food or whatever. I'll pray for you to be wise in your decision-making.

  2. This is what I'm trying to figure out- whether or not I really need the meds. I don't have any problem taking them if I really need them. I just not sure I do. I feel great this morning. I managed to pull myself together last night, so that's a good thing. I still have to talk about all this with my spiritual father. Haven't had the chance yet. Maybe tonight...

  3. Just be careful. And talk to your spiritual father.
