Shawn, if it helps regarding Mary, she was present with the Apostles at the time of Pentacost. She's everything the Catholic Church teaches. I've had a hard time with "Mother of God" for some time, even this is waning.

Take care. I have experienced some of what you mentioned of your ailments. I pray for your continued courage and perseverence.

* It's not always with Mary, it is with unbibical teachings as well..I've researched and applied the same energy toward her as other issues(purgatory, confession, papal headship) I just don't accept these!
All of these are explained here

Here is someone who can help. God bless and keep fighting those doubts and fears. Remember that only the enemy deals in fear.
