Triplem, thank you for praying. Please include me. I have terrible brain fog and pain and don't know up from down most days. I'm in a spiritual desert.

Thank you for the prayers and checking in on me.  Tonight will be four weeks since my golden went to the rainbow bridge.  I continue to cry everyday.  The pain I feel from losing her is almost unbearable at times.  I do pray that the neuro emotions get better.  I struggle with them daily.  I will continue to pray for you triplem.

I could use some much needed prayers.  Today marks 15 months of being off Prozac.  Instead of celebrating this accomplishment all I want to do is hurt myself.  I don't know what is going on with me.  Any prayers would be greatly appreciated!

First, 15 months is a great achievement and this is not easy!  I am glad you have made it this far, after all you did CT and that is always hellish.  May God be with you and strengthen and comfort you and give you His peace.  Please know that wanting to hurt yourself is the w/d and not from you, I had that lots.  Standing with you x

love the video :) 

 

Reminds me of a dark wd day I went to the beach in a freezing rain storm... the sea gulls sat on the ice ... naked... I whined in warm car in a coat... after some time it came to me that there were bigger things than me going on and if they could sit naked on ice I could get thru wd... or at least that day... 

 

I gave it to God once again cause he knows better then I what I can actually survive... pray for mankind we need it all prayers are heard... even from people in wd. 

wishing you all peace

Thanks btdt for another beautiful video.  Yes, it all comes down to surrender and letting God do it.  Trust him.  Not easy, but the answers.

 

Thanks too for your little story.  It amazes me how if we look for the VERY LITTLE SIMPLE THINGS - He does show up like with you on the beach,but we have to be LOOKING.

 

One winter I didn't think I could possibly make it through .. and I noticed a flower on a plant that wouldn't normally be there in winter - the only one in a mass of groundcover.  I kept an eye on it, knowing that as it got colder it would die off.  It stayed there.  Then I knew it had to die when the icy cold winds came.  It stayed.  Well, it would be impossible for it to last through the frosts.  It stayed there!  This plant has NEVER had a flower/flowers on it through winter before this or since!  I knew then that if that flower could make it through winter, so could I!

Lord God.  We are struck down.  We don't understand why we have been called to suffering.  When we were not suffering and saw others suffering we could perhaps, understand that it is sin that brings suffering.  Sin that entered the world through Satan's temptation in the Garden.  We understand that concept.  Sin brings death.  We were born into sin and into death.  But You have provided a sacrifice for that sin, for all sin for all ages.  Your Son came in the flesh that He created and through His own incomprehensible suffering, bought us back from death.  And we who have received this sacrifice for our own sin, have entered into the Eternal Life that is in Your Son.  But then, after the joy of experiencing Your Holy Spirit within  us, of knowing that we are on our way to a Life where there will be nothing but joy, we were struck down.  And we can feel betrayed.  Especially if we have had human betrayal.  And we can be in a place of despair.  We know that we are to call out Abba Father, and we do.  But we do not understand why we have not been delivered from this agony.  Surely You must know that we are not those heroes in the Bible who remained faithful through terrible torture.  They were special people who knew how to trust You with suffering.  And we had anticipated some suffering.  But not this, God.  This goes beyond human endurance.  What good can come of this?  How are you honored in this?  Where can we go for comfort, for understanding and acceptance?  It has to come from You . 

 

So we have to find Your words to us.  And we find them in the Scriptures.  And when we go there we see that suffering is indeed, part of the human, Christian life.  We see Jeremiah.  We see David.  We see Job.  We see Paul.  We see Your Son.  But oh God, we are in deep need of the strength to walk through this time of suffering.  Your Word says that Your grace is sufficient.  And that we can do all things through the Lord, through His indwelling Presence.  Show us today Lord how to bring those promises into our lives, into our thoughts and to find what You have provided for us to walk through even this.  And to know that You know us completely and have a way for us even when we see no way.   Help us to look only to You and to Your power in us. Give us Your peace, Your hope and even Your joy as You have promised to give us.   We lay Your Word before You and in faith, hold onto it as truth.  Oh God of all Eternity, be very real to us today.

 

Amen. Thank you

Hi all! I am always up for being prayed for, and for praying for others! May the Lord bless us all who are suffering through discontinuation/withdrawal/tapering/currently on meds. May He bless us with peace and joy, and a close knot group of supportive, caring, loving, and patient people.

I think prayer and positive thoughts are an awesome idea.  I send my loving, positive, light filled thoughts to EACH and EVERY one of you who are surviving depression.  You are all so brave and so amazing.  We can all help each other through this.

I'm bedridden and when I have to get up, filled with fear, I sing hymns out loud...Because He Lives, Jesus is the Sweetest Name I Know, What a Friend We Have in Jesus and several others.

In need of prayer. I was on a 4 day super-high anxiety wave (which was part of a 2 week anxiety wave).

 

Now suddenly my symptoms have morphed. My anxiety is waning, and I am slipping immediately into depression!

 
Why can't I catch a break?

Yeah include me in these prayers as well as I go through withdrawal off being on Olanzapine started on 10mg then had to reduce to 7.5mg as the 10mg literally turned me into a walking Zombie..literally I was breathing but I was not all there...got reduced to 7.5mg I did get  a bit better...but the lethargic feeling did not go away the depression did not go away the severe lack of motivation was depressing therefore I could not motivate myself at all and the excess eating was horrible and the massive weight gain added was even more depressing the feeling of constant defeat etc...Some aspects of my life did improve however only because I made descions at the right time when it felt right to do so....I was not eating as much fast food like Burger King etc reduced my drinking and well i was still sick but not as much....Although on November December time I hit a really big low I mean my Self Esteem hit rock bottom..so I talked to my support officer about it and she was like maybe you should seek help and get some counselling and I was like yeah and she arranged it for me and I did not have to pay for it it lasted over a 4 week period although it lasted into early January as  had to skip one week..Aghh can't recall why but I got more empowerment out of those 4 weeks tha I did from the therapist who prescribed this Olanzapine.  

 

I should not have been on Olanzapine in the 1st place.  The first Therapist I had was lovely and all that and she went and talked to a senior therapist who then came in and well he suggested I had Psychosis a small case of it by the way and this is obviously after she had asked me a bunch of questions and all that and they gave me 25mg sereoquel so went with it as much as I was reluctant to take it as my beliefs on who runs this world and how they control people etc but went with it and it was great it helped me sleep something in which I was unable to do for a long period  of time so that was a blessing and and as a result I got some much needed time off work which was great..I had a second session were me and the same therapist had a conversation very productive I was more chilled out and less stressed out than  before I even told her I was going to join the Gym which I did and I lost a lot of body fat etc...then like a month or two later I got another letter out for a new therapist dunno why I just did and the session started with a trainee therapist and that went pretty well although she did sort of ask my what my dream was and I said to become a billionaire and she was like a small laugh and said be more realistic..then she went in to my current therapist and talked to her and then she talked to me and give me this crap about my thoughts being all over the place etc which by the way none of my thoughts involved hurting others are causing any self harm.  So she suggested I up my dosage to 50mg which was something I was never going to  do anyway so she gave me a prescription and told me if I was going to take it to hand the prescription in and if not  I would continue to get my 25 mg..so I did stick with the 25mg...The next session I had with my therapist not sure it was like the session after the 50mg because I remember that same year I had a one on one session with just the trainee therapist it went well okay all good.  But the next session I had with my assigned therapist she asked me the a bunch of questions a friendly conversation she was all smiles and seemed peaceful and she was like a very pleased with your progress and all that and give me this friendly speech about on how she would not prescribe the drugs unless she had to..but she was happy with my progress therefore she suggested I take Zyprexa otherwise known as Olanzapine here in the UK and well the rest off the story has been Hell....But there has been many blessings out of this aswell.

 

Withdrawals are happening but I Educated myself on the withdrawal symptoms so when they do occur I know not to respond in panic.

 

Like for example the other week I had a strange dream were I guy in a suit was talking to me and he said something to me then I woke up kind of with a blank mind but I immediately snapped out of it and kind of laughed it off..then when my alarm went off I looked at my phone in a panic screen shot my home screen off my alarm twice then calmed down then chilled then got up and got on with my day like it never bothered me so it was all good.  So I know how to respond to these things....Everything is going to be Okay....God is with me...God is with us...and if God be for us who in this God green earth can stand against us.  Don't get fearful guys because at the end of the day you pput faith into your fears guess what....According to your faith it will be done unto you.  Also keep these encouraging verses and for thos who are not Christian but believe in God these scriptures are not exclusive to Christians there universal principles 

 

Job 3:25 - What I feared has come upon me;
    what I dreaded has happened to me.

 

 

Psalm 23:4

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear NO evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Definitely will be praying for you, BlazeMan! Stay close to God. Press in even closer when symptoms arise. Take the time to praise Him for Who He is - the Permanent God Who created you with love and for a purpose. Remember, this is the valley of the shadow of death, not actual death. Call on the love of the One Who is light to dispel the shadow and walk in His light each and every step.
