Default taking up my cross

I struggle with questioning my going to the psych. Dr. or giving my dissease to God- with all my trust in Him. Does anyone else have this struggle? Does God want us to take psych meds? (non. addictive) or pray and give our trials to Him? I pray for answers for us all.

Does God want a diabetic to take insulin? Should people with dangerously high cholesterol take medication to lessen the chances of arteriosclerosis? Bodies have flaws due to the fall of man in the garden. Our brains function basically due to chemical exchanges. If that chemistry is flawed, yes, medication may help to ameliorate the consequences. God wants us to take our medications.

Sometimes (probably most times) the answer to prayer is the treatment the doc prescribes.

Thank you all for those very helpful and supportive threads: I thought long and hard about my post last night, and saw what you had posted. I think God has given light to Doctors,and us too, if we ask for it and recieve it. Thank you. Have a blessed day!

I'm new to this group and am looking for support. I struggle with major depressive disorder and anxiety. I live in a small community with no support groups.

I also struggle just like you... im trying to get closer to god and have more faith and i pray every day for god to relieve me from depression and anxiety, irritableness and low self esteem. I gave up anxiety pills for lent. And its tough. How can i go to church more and go to retreats when im so anxious to step out of the house. :/ ?

I didn't know people gave up prescribed medicine for lent. I wouldn't stop mine. Are you sure you should be doing that? My anxiety medicine is very important to maintaining my mental health.
