BE NOT AFRAID -- Catholics Living With Anxiety Disorders

Group created by 3DOCTORS

To give mutual support and fellowship for those of us who live with anxiety disorders such as Panic Attacks, GAD, PTSD, Agoraphobia, and similar fearful difficulties.

Our hero is Pope John Paul the Great, whose example of courage in so many difficulties, and his proclaiming of the phrase "Be Not Afraid! Open Wide the Doors to Christ!" can remind us of what we need to do to help ourselves to carry these crosses.

PLEASE NOTE that posts should be appropriate for all ages and that there are ladies present, your humble group leader among them. Issues of impurity would best belong in other CA Groups focused on that issue. Thank you.

    Hello Im Ysara and this is the second group I have joined in this site... and I thank God for this site... I am close to despair ... I need help... and I need to go back to prayer again... for over 6 years I have been in hell... lost and now desperate... I have never felt this low or have this feeling of such utter hopelessness before... I feel that Im reaching out and all I see is darkness... I have recently begun to read some of the Psalms and they echo what Im feeling..." Out of the depths I cry to You oh Lord! " But the worst part is... I have brought this upon myself... I have put my faith and trust and love in someone who has not responded with actions... just words,,, emppty words and promises...

    Just being baptized and confirmed this past weekend was one of the happiest moments in my life. I have always had problems with anxiety but for some reason since I found out my parents lied about why they didnt come to the baptism I have had extreme anxiety its like it made something "click" and now it wont stop. They have been unsupportive and negative about alot of things in my life but for some reason I cant cope with this, Its like god is trying to get me to deal with it this time instead of just letting it go. I dont want to cause conflict with them. I had a moment today where I was shaking and on edge I prayed for God to send me peace to calm down and he did!

    To All, praying the Rosary, is the answer to receive help from OUR LADY,I always say the Rosary, for she has never failed to help others,that beleive in her.

    Roux my thoughts and prayers are with you. I know how it feels when everything you try to cope fails. I have been through it myself. Notice the past tense! There is a way through. When I feel so bad I can't see an end I realise that if I have hit rock bottom then the rock beneath me is Jesus. He will never leave me nor forsake me. He will carry me and will never drop me. I know at times these can seem empty, patronising words, but I do not mean them like that. I really do know what it is like. Remember you are never alone. Not only is God with you in this hard time, but also the people in this group. Close your eyes, and feel the hug that I am sending you along with my prayers.

    God help me like many here I struggle DAILY with anxiety. It seems that all the methods that I try do not work or may work but not as fast as I wish/hoped for them to work. This anxiety is interfering in my life to the point where I am tempted to change careers. I know that would be running though. The difficulty that has hit me recently is temporary (I believe) but there is always that voice asking what if it is not temporary and I will be forced to endure this suffering for my whole life!!! That I will never be happy in my vocation and subsequently unhappy in my life!! I am so tired of being stressed and anxious. God I beg of you please give me relief from my suffering. If not please give me the unfailing strength to endure and to know that it will not be forever.
