Default Re: I am suffering from depression and anxiety

Memorare (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen

I also looked at some of your other post and see that your 14 years old. You can't go to the doctor on your own. Please talk to your parents and tell them how you feel so that they can make the appointment for you. You have been feeling this way for some time. Don't wait to much long.

I have a niece about your age, she is 15, and depressed. She did not talk to her mom because her mom is partly to blame, but she called me. She was reaching out telling me that she could not live the life she was living much longer for she has an angry mother and a brother for he has bipolar and is off medications. So she ends up fighting with him a lot and her mother blames her because she is the oldest. She feels helpless and alone. I took her in for sometime and talked to her. I told her to trust Jesus when she feels alone, but she doesn't know Him yet. I told her how to get to know Him. She is getting there slowly. You are not alone. Many teens are depressed. I just saw a DVD my husband bought on Pope John Paul II and how he talked to the teens of United States. He knew they were hurting from broken homes, divorce, and still he encouraged them to not be afraid and turn to Jesus. I ask you, as I did my niece, to do the same. Teens here in Amercia have it hard these days. Family are broken and you are torn between mom and dad and if one of them or both get remarried, it hurts too if you don't get along with the spouse they chose. It is very complicated. The late pope understood all that.

You are not alone! Talk to your parents. I will keep you in our family rosary.
idontknow322, I did not know that you were a teen. nana3 has some very good advice here. I wish someone had given me that advice when I was 14. (I was already sick by then.) Try opening up to your parents. We'll all be praying for you.


Saint Dymphna, a great wonderworker in every affliction of mind and body, I humbly implore your powerful intercession with Jesus through Mary, the Health of the Sick.

You are filled with love and compassion for the thousands of patients brought to your shrine for centuries, and for those who cannot come to your shrine but invoke you in their own homes or in hospitals. Show the same love and compassion toward us, your faithful clients. The many miracles and cures which have been wrought through your intercession give us great confidence that you will help us in our present need: total health for idontknow322

I am confident of obtaining my request, if it is for the greater glory of God and the good of my soul. For the sake of Jesus and Mary, whom you loved so earnestly, and for whom you offered your life in martyrdom, grant our prayer.

Saint Dymphna, young and beautiful, innocent and pure, help us to imitate your love of purity. You chose to be martyred by your own fatherís sword rather than consent to sin. Give us strength and courage in fighting off the temptations of the world and evil desires. As you have given all the love of your heart to Jesus, help us to love God with our whole heart and serve Him faithfully. As you bore the persecution of your father and the sufferings of an exile so patiently, obtain for us the patience we need to accept the trials of our life with loving resignation to the will of God.

Saint Dymphna, through your glorious martyrdom for the love of Christ, help us to be loyal to our faith and our God as long as we live. And when the hour of our own death comes, stand at our side and pray for us that we may at last merit the eternal crown of glory in Godís Kingdom.

Good Saint Dymphna, I beg you to recommend our request to Mary, the Health of the Sick and Comforter of the Afflicted, that both Mary and you may present it to Jesus, the Divine Physician.

O God, You gave Saint Dymphna to Your Church as a model of all virtues, especially holy purity, and willed that she should seal her faith with her innocent blood and perform numerous miracles. Grant that we who honor her as patroness of those afflicted with nervous and mental illness may continue to enjoy her powerful intercession and protection and attain eternal life. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.
